How to have separate passcodes for multiple nest Yale locks

Jadey

Hi, 

I have a nest Yale lock for my front door and garage. I would like the code for the front door to not be able to unlock the garage door. Is there a way to do that?

 

Thank you.

The only way to do that would be to move one of the locks to a separate "home" in the Nest app. To do that:

  1. Remove the Nest × Yale Lock from the Nest app.
  2. Reset your lock to factory defaults.
  3. At the top left corner of the app home screen, tap the down arrow.

  4. At the top right corner, tap the + icon and tap Continue.

  5. Give your other home a name and then tap Next.

  6. Enter it's address and then tap Next when you're finished.

  7. Choose if you want to use your phone’s location to help with Home/Away Assist for your new home. If you have a non-migrated account, you’ll be asked if you want to invite other people to share access to your new home. If you don’t, you can always invite them later.

  8. Once done, select your new home and connect the lock back to the Nest app.

Thanks so much for the reply @David_K!

Once I remove one of the locks and create a new home for it on the Nest app, could I connect the same Nest Connect to this new home? Would there be any issues of having one Nest Connect that is connected to two homes with the same wifi details?

Good point. You can try but I'm not sure it will let you do that. You may need a separate Nest Connect, Nest Guard, or Nest Hub Max.
