I don't have a key to open the lock

My padlock doesn't turn ON

1. The padlock LED must turn ON when pressing the button.
2. If the LED doesn't turn ON when pressing the button, connect an external charger to the micro USB port on the side of the padlock to power it. The external charger can be a USB cable connected to a laptop, wall adapter or a portable charger. 
3. The battery of the padlock is replaceable but not rechargeable. The external charger can enable users to open the padlock as a backup, while the battery is replaced.

The app doesn't detect the lock

1. If it is a padlock, make sure to turn it ON by pressing the button. If the LED doesn't turn ON, connect an external charger to the micro USB port on the side of the padlock to power it. The external charger can be a USB cable connected to a laptop, wall adapter or a portable charger.

The padlock is shown as open in the mobile app, when it's physically closed

1. Remove any tension on the shackle as this could be preventing the detection of the open/close status of the padlock. 
2. Override the lock status by connecting to it, and selecting UNLOCK three times. If the app only shows the option to LATCH, then select the UNLATCH option in the app menu. 
3. If the padlock is still shown as open as it's closed, connect an external charger to the micro USB port and repeat step #2
4. Report padlock to the administrator if the padlock is still shown as open, as it is likely having a hardware failure.

The padlock shackle is not released when I select UNLOCK

1. Remove any tension that could be obstructing the shackle, this includes heavy chains that could be pulling the body of the padlock down, in the opposite direction of the shackle. As sometimes the shackle could be jammed, the user might have to pull the padlock to open it after selecting UNLOCK in the mobile app. 
2. If the padlock is shown as open in the mobile app, follow troubleshooting steps in The padlock is shown as open in the mobile app, when it's physically closed.
3. If the shackle still does't open, connect an external charger to the micro USB port on the side of the padlock to power it. The external charger can be a USB cable connected to a laptop, wall adapter or a portable charger. 

The padlock shackle doesn't relock when I push it down

Some padlocks are configured to close manually, by pushing the shackle down; and some other ones are configured with the CONNECTED LATCH option, to only close when enabled through the mobile app by selecting LOCK. Please check which configuration is being used in your organization as this trouble shooting is only applicable to the locks that can be closed manually.
1. Push and hold the padlock shackle down, while selecting UNLOCK in the Teleporte application 3 times. Every time you select UNLOCK, you need to wait until the option is shown again in order to select.
2. Release the shackle and push it down afterwards, the padlock should re-latch this time.
3. If the shackle doesn't re-latch, the repeat step 2 while connecting an external charger to the micro USB port on the side of the padlock to power it. The external charger can be a USB cable connected to a laptop, wall adapter or a portable charger.
