When sliding the outside assembly onto the door, make sure the wiring harness slides between the top of the cross bore and the latch body. Before sliding the inside chassis against the interior face of the door, make sure the tail (flat) shaft hub is vertical. When the two halves are together, thread the two 8-32 by 1-1/2” mounting screws in place. Do not fully tighten at this time. Slide the wiring harness straight through the access hole in the inside chassis. Align the inside and outside trim then tighten the mounting screws.
Wrap the wiring harness between the three clips on the right side of the inside chassis. Connect the electrical connector then install the 9volt battery (provided).
The final installation step is to mount the inside trim plate using the two provided screws. Make sure the thumbturn is vertical when the inside trim plate is installed.
Test the operation of the lock. With the door open, rotate the thumbturn to extend the deadbolt. Press the Emtek insignia or touch three fingers across the screen. The touchscreen will illuminate. After every button press, one yellow LED flashes and a short beep sounds.
Enter a user code. If valid, a short beep will emanate and the touchscreen will flash green. If not, one red LED will flash and two short beeps will sound. After three failed attempts, the lock will enter a 20-second countdown before another attempt can be made. During the countdown a red LED flash and a beep will be heard each second.
When a correct code is entered, rotate the thumbturn to retract the bolt. Test the operation of the second User Code and the Programming Code. The EMTouch lock is now ready for use.
A nice feature of the EMTouch product is the deadbolt can be thrown (when unlocked) without having to enter a User Code from the exterior. Press the Emtek insignia and rotate the outside thumbturn to the locked position after about 5 seconds the outside thumbturn will disengage and turn freely. A valid user code will now be required to gain entry.
EMTouch locks are powered by a 9volt battery that has a life expectancy of one year of normal operation. A low battery warning of four red flashes and four short beeps notifies the owner. If the battery is not replaced, when the voltage is too low to operate the lock, battery blackout occurs. When the user code is attempted during battery blackout, one long red LED flashes followed by four long beeps. The lock cannot be unlocked in battery blackout condition.
The EMTouch’s mechanical key override can be used if the lock enters battery blackout. The lock comes standard with a Schlage C five-pin tumbler lock cylinder and can be ordered with a Weiser five-pin tumbler lock cylinder, if desired. An aftermarket lock cylinder, such as a Medeco cylinder, can be installed as long as the cylinder and tailpiece are compatible.
The Emtek EMTouch comes with a limited lifetime mechanical warranty, a five-year finish warranty for most finishes, and a two-year warranty on the electronic components.
