Do you want to update the four-digit code on your Schlage BE365 Lock but don’t know how? Then this article is a must-read.
I’ll teach you how to modify the 4-digit code on your Schlage BE365, add additional User Codes, change the Programming Code, and more in the following paragraphs.
But first, what is the purpose of the 4-digit code on your Schlage BE365?
The 4-digit number that comes with your Schlage Lock is a default User Code that may be used to open the lock, as you surely know. There are two default codes, which may be found on a sticker on the back of the keypad assembly as well as on the front of the User Manual.
How to Change the 4 Digit Code on a Schlage BE365 Lock
To change this code, you have to delete it and then add another code of your choosing. Here’s how to do that:
- Step 1: Enter your current Programming Code and wait for 3 orange lights from the Schlage button, followed by 3 beeps.
- Step 2: Press the Schlagebutton and then press 2. Wait for the Schlage button to light orange 3 times, followed by 3 beeps.
- Step 3: Now enter the 4-digit code you want to change and wait for the Schlage button to blink 3 orange lights and beep 3 times.
- Step 5: Re-enter the 4 digit code you want to change to complete the process. The Schlage button will illuminate green, followed by one long beep, indicating that the code has been successfully deleted.
It’s worth noting that there are two 4-digit User Codes, so be careful to remove them both. To erase each of the preset four-digit codes, repeat the procedures above.
After deleting the default User Codes, you may now add new User Codes to replace them. In the next paragraph, we’ll show you how to accomplish it.

How to Add another 4 Digit Code (User Code)
- Step 1: Enter your current Programming Code and wait for 3 orange lights from the Schlage button with 3 beeps from the lock.
- Step 2: Press the Schlagebutton and then press 1. Wait for the Schlage button to blink the orange light 3 times and beep 3 times.
- Step 3: Enter a new 4-digit User Code and wait for the Schlage button to blink the orange light 3 times and beep 3 times.
- Step 4: Re-enter the new 4-digit User Code to complete the process.
If you see a green light followed by a lengthy beep, it implies the new User Code was successfully applied, thereby replacing the default 4-digit Code you removed.
This 4-digit code is your User Code, which you may use to open the lock. The same procedure may be used to add more User Codes; the lock can hold up to 19 User Codes.
That’s all there is to altering the Schlage lock BE365’s default 4-digit code. Let’s have a look at some alternative programming options for your Schlage BE365.
Changing the Preset Programming Code
The Schlage BE365 comes with a preset 6-digit Programming Code that is used to place the lock in Programming Mode, similar to the 4-digit User Code.
When you wish to add or delete User Codes, activate or disable Vacation Mode, and more, you’ll need this code. You should also alter the default Programming Code to guarantee that only you can make modifications to your lock.
A sticker on the back of the keypad assembly and the User Manual also include the Preset Programming Code.
So, here’s how to Change the Preset Programming Code on your Schlage BE365 Keypad Lock:
- Enter your preset Programming Code (can be found on a sticker on the back of the keypad assembly) and wait for the Schlage button to flash an orange light 3 times and beep 3 times.
- Press the Schlage button and then press 3. Wait for the lock to beep three times and flash orange light times.
- Enter your new Programming Code and wait for the usual 3 orange flashes and 3 beeps.
- Re-enter the new Programming Code to complete the change. The Schlage button will illuminate green once, followed by one long beep, confirming that the process was successful.
Note: If you’ve already modified the Programming Code, you can do so again using the same techniques as before. However, keep in mind and apply your present Programming Code throughout the procedure.
Other features of the Schlage BE356 include Vacation Mode, which disables all User Codes and so prevents unwanted access when you’re away from home. Let’s look at how to enable/disable this functionality, which is normally deactivated by default.
Using the Schlage BE365 to enable/disable Vacation Mode
Here’s how to enable Vacation Mode:
- Enter your current Programming Code and then wait for the Schlage button to blink orange with 3 orange lights, followed by 3 beeps.
- Press the Schlage button and then press 4.
And that’s all about enabling Vacation Mode. The Schlage button will illuminate green followed by one long beep, confirming that the Vacation Mode has been successfully activated.
To disable vacation mode, you only need to enter your Programming Code.
How do I Change User Codes if I can’t remember my current Programming Code?
In this case, your best bet is to factory reset the lock and then reprogram it with the default Programming Code. Here’s how to factory reset a Schlage BE365 Lock:
- Keep your door open to avoid being locked out.
- Remove the battery cover and disconnect the battery.
- Press and release the Schlage
- Reconnect the battery and then press and hold the Schlage button until it lights green and the lock beeps. Ensure this is done within 10 seconds.
So that’s all about factory resetting your Schlage BE365.
