Wyze Lock Motor Orientation Guide

The Wyze Lock’s motor will spin freely across a 90-degree angle, but has a full 180 degrees of movement available. This allows you to install the lock in whichever position you’d prefer.

To change the orientation of the Wyze Lock’s motor:

  1. Remove the Wyze Lock from the door (if already installed).
  2. Turn the Wyze Lock’s thumb latch to a vertical position.
  3. Continue turning through the resistance, forcefully rotating the motor to the opposite side of where it started.
  4. Reinstall the Wyze Lock.

Note: Wyze Lock can be used with the thumb latch in either position on every type of deadbolt except Kwikset and Baldwin Reserve/Prestige. For those brands specifically, the thumb latch must be in a vertical position while the deadbolt is locked, and horizontal while unlocked.
