Depository Safes

OWNERS MANUAL

Thank you for purchasing this security safe from Sentry®Safe. This guide is designed to maximize the user and security features of this project.

Getting Started

Installation of the batteries (keep the door open during setup):

  1. Turn the keypad housing counterclockwise and carefully pull away from the mounting plate to expose the battery compartment.
  2. Install four new AAA Alkaline batteries (not included). Caution: Hold onto the keypad housing to avoid pulling wires.
  3. Carefully position the keypad into the inserts on the mounting plate and turn clockwise. Ensure that there are no wires or cables trapped between the keypad and the mounting plate. Pinched cables result in a short circuit.
  4. Enter: * – Master or Manager Code (from the front of the booklet) – # The lock will indicate a valid code entry with a single signal and the open light will stay green for five (5) seconds.
  5. Turn the handle clockwise before the green light disappears.

Programming Your Lock Codes

The SentrySafe electronic lock is shipped from the factory with a factory set master code & manager code (see the front of the booklet). You should set the lock to your own unique master & manager code immediately. Keep notes on which code belongs to which user (Master (User 1), Manager (User 2), User 3, User 4, User 5, User 6 and User 7).

A single signal (LED fl ashes and beeps once) response from the lock indicates valid entry.

A double signal (LED fl ashes and beeps twice) response from the lock indicates an invalid entry.

  • If three incorrect entries are entered in a row, the keypad will shut down for a period of fi ve minutes. During this shut down period you will not get a response from the keypad.

Changing The Master Code

(Code length: 1 to 10 digit code) Always perform this operation with the door open.

  1. Enter: # – Existing Master Code – #
  2. The set light will stay orange for ten (10) seconds.
  3. Enter: 1 – * – New Master Code – # – New Master Code – #, before the orange light disappears.

If a mistake is made during the change, wait thirty (30) seconds and repeat steps 1 thru 3.

Test the new code several times before closing the door: Enter: * – Code – #

  • The lock will indicate a valid code change with a single signal.
  • The lock will indicate an invalid code change with a double signal and the old code is still valid.

Changing The Manager Code

(Code length: 1 to 10 digit code) Always perform this operation with the door open.

  1. Enter: # – Master Code or Manager Code – #
  2. The set light will stay orange for ten (10) seconds.
  3. Enter: 2 – * – New Manger Code – # – New Manager Code – #, before the orange light disappears.

If a mistake is made during the change, wait thirty (30) seconds and repeat steps 1 thru 3. Test the new code several times before closing the door: Enter: * – Code – #

  • The lock will indicate a valid code change with a single signal.
  • The lock will indicate an invalid code change with a double signal and the old code is still valid.

Activate User Codes

(Code length: 1 to 10 digit code) Always perform this operation with the door open.

  1. Enter: # – Master Code or Manager Code – #
  2. The set light will stay orange for ten (10) seconds.
  3. Enter: User ID Number (3-7) – * – New User Code – # – New User Code – #, before the orange light disappears.

If a mistake is made during the activation, wait thirty (30) seconds and repeat steps 1 thru 3.

  • The lock will indicate a valid code entry with a single signal.
  • The lock will indicate an invalid code entry with a double signal and the old code is still valid.

Example: # – Master Code or Manger Code – # – 5 – * – New User Code – # – New User Code – #. This will activate User Five (5).

Test the new code several times before closing the door: Enter: * – Code – #

  • The lock will indicate a valid code change with a single signal.
  • The lock will indicate an invalid code change with a double signal and the old code is still valid.

The Master and Manager can also change the user codes by following the “Activate user codes” section steps 1 thru 3.

Troubleshooting

Low Battery Warning

The green LED light will signal in red when opening your safe. The lock is giving you a valid signal but is not unlocking.

Changing Your Batteries

  1. Turn the keypad housing counterclockwise and carefully pull away from the mounting plate to expose battery compartment.
  2. Remove the four AAA Alkaline batteries and replace. Caution: Hold onto the keypad housing to avoid pulling wires.
  3. Carefully position the keypad into the inserts on the mounting plate and turn clockwise. Ensure that there are no wires or cables trapped between the keypad and the mounting plate. Pinched cables result in a short circuit.

The Lock Has No Response (no Fl Ash, No Beeps)

  • Make sure the wires in the keypad housing are not pinched and are securely connected. (See “installation of batteries” on page 2)
  • Check to make sure the batteries are correctly and securely inserted into the battery compartment. (See “installation of batteries” on page 2)
  • Lock can possibly be in the lockout penalty, wait fi ve (5) minutes, and check if the lock responds.
  • Replace the existing batteries with new ones. (See “changing your batteries” in troubleshooting)

The Lock Is Responding But Does Not Unlock

  • Make sure you are getting a valid response.
  • Make sure you get a signal with every key stroke.
  • Make sure you are not in time delay mode. (See “time delay mode” above)
  • Replace the existing batteries with new ones. (See “changing your batteries” in troubleshooting)

If the lock still does not open, contact Sentry Group Customer Care: 1-800-828-1438 or 585-381-4900 (Available Mon – Fri, 8:00 am – 6:00 pm EST). Follow the instructions carefully to get the best possible use from your lock.
