How to create a door PIN
Step 1: Open the ButterflyMX Mobile app
Open up the ButterflyMX mobile app, and hit ‘Account’ in the bottom right corner.
Step 2: Hit ‘PIN’
Next, in the account settings, hit ‘PIN’.
Step 3: Choose a PIN
Type in a PIN that you can easily remember. You’ll be able to see it in the app or change it at any time. Make sure you’ll be able to memorize it in case your phone or keys are unavailable and you need to open the door.
Step 4: Type in the PIN on the intercom at the front of your building
Hit the “Door Pin” icon on the Smart Intercom at the front of your building. Then, enter the code that you created in step 3.
Step 5: Hit next, the door will open
Enter your pin and push the ‘Next’ button. The Smart Intercom will chime and display a ‘Door Open’ message.
For security purposes, our video intercom will take a time- and date-stamped photo of the person who used your PIN. This photo will be stored for review in your mobile app for 365 days.
That’s it! You can now use a PIN anytime you need to gain access to your property.
