Installing The Yale eBOSS Cylindrical Electronic Lockset

Yale has introduced the eBOSS Series for exterior and interior applications.


The eBOSS is programmed from the keypad. The end user can control the audible keypad feedback, visual keypad feedback, keypad attempts (1-255), keypad timeout (1-255 seconds), unlock time (1-255 seconds), emergency unlock time (1-255 seconds), and the REX unlock time (1-255 seconds).

IMPORTANT: When in the programming mode, and a mistake occurs or command has been completed, press the [*] button within five seconds. The lock will automatically prompt for the next command. This saves time when programming a number of user codes and/or commands as you will not leave and have to re-enter the programming mode after each command.

For new installations, the factory master and emergency preset codes must be changed before any other codes can be programmed.

To program a new Master Code:

Step 1. Press and hold the # button until the yellow LED blinks continuously.

Step 2. Enter the factory Master Code and #.

Step 3. Enter the PCC (Programming Command Code) 51 and #.

Step 4. Enter the User LOC (Location) 1 and #.

Step 5. Enter the new Master Code four to seven digits and #.

Step 6. Re-enter new Master Code ,four to seven digits and #.

Once the new Master Code has been entered twice, the yellow LED stops blinking and the green LED begins to blink.

If this is not a new installation and the Master Code is lost, a new Master Code can be programmed, enabling new or additional programming commands.

To change the Master Code without knowing the previous Master Code:

Step 1. Remove the inside escutcheon.

Step 2. Press and hold the # button until the yellow LED blinks continuously.

Step 3. Press the Program (PRGM) button located at the top of the controller board.

Step 4. Enter Program Command Code 51 and #.

Step 5. Enter User Number 1 and #.

Step 6. Enter new Master Code (four to seven digits) and #.

Step 7. Re-enter new Master Code and #.

Once the new Master Code has been entered twice, the yellow LED stops blinking and the green LED begins to blink.

NOTE: When reprogramming the Master Code, no other Codes or programming commands are changed.
At this point, enter the Emergency Code, then the Supervisor, Passage, Lockout, and Normal Users. The factory default Master Code 1234 and the Emergency Code 4321 cannot be reused as any User Code to prevent accidental opening by using these codes at any level.

To simplify the programming instructions, Yale has created a Program Guide. First, use the Master Code to program the new Supervisor and Emergency Codes.

User Programming Commands

  • General User
    Format MC# PCC LOC
    VAL 1 VAL 2
  • To program the Emergency Code:
    # MC# 51# 2#
    4-7 digit# 4-7 digit#
  • To program the Supervisor Code:
    # MC# 51# 3#
    4-7 digit# 4-7 digit#

Once new Master Emergency and Supervisor Codes have been programmed, the eBOSS can be programmed for the remaining user codes and user definable functions. The Master Code or the Supervisor Code can be used to program the remaining users, user programming, and the keypad programming. An eBOSS User Log is included to keep records of the programming and User Codes.

IMPORTANT: If the Master Code is used to program, the Master Code must be entered during programming. If the Supervisor Code is used to program, the Supervisor Code must be entered during programming.

The following are the programming commands that can be completed with either the Master Code or the Supervisor Code. Once programmed, modifications can be programmed using either code.

  • To program the Lockout Code:
    # MC#/SC# 51#
    4# 4-7 digit# 4-7 digit#
  • To program the Passage Code:
    # MC#/SC# 51#
    5# 4-7 digit# 4-7 digit#
  • To program a Normal User Code:
    # MC#/SC# 51#
    6-99# 2-7 digit# 2-7 digit#
  • General Master Code (MC#)/ Format Supervisor Code (SC#)
    PCC Confirm
  • Delete All Users back to factory default:
    # MC#/SC# 60# 60#
  • Delete Individual Users Codes:
    # MC#/SC# 61# (6-99)#
  • Delete Block of User Codes
    # MC#/SC# 62# 1st LOC# 2nd LOC#
  • User Settings Reset programming commands to factory default
    # MC#/SC# 72# 72#
