  • Rechargeable batteries
    For a long usage we recommend the rechargeable batteries Akkus Panasonic eneloop pro which have been tested by Nuki. These batteries last about twice as long as alkaline batteries. Furthermore, they are rechargeable and thus more environmentally friendly than alkaline batteries.
  • Lithium batteries
    Lithium batteries (e.g. Energizer Ultimate Lithium) can also be used for the power supply of the Nuki Smart Lock. They provide a high durability and last up to three times as long as alkaline batteries, but they are significantly more expensive.
  • Alkaline batteries
    The Nuki Smart Lock in the standard-variant come with four AA batteries.
    Please note that cheap batteries from discount stores will be depleted faster and the battery warning can be displayed shortly after the battery change.

Nuki Smart Lock will automatically detect if alkaline batteries or rechargeable batteries are used. This optimizes the respective limits for the battery warning. You can also configure the battery type manually. Tap on the desired Smart Lock and enter the lock settings. Then go to Features & Configuration Battery Battery type.

How to change the batteries

At a power level of 20% Nuki will notify you via the Nuki app and directly on the Smart Lock via the LED signalization. So there is enough time to replace your batteries of your Smart Lock.
In case you are not able to change the batteries in time, the Smart Lock will not be able to receive any commands. However you can still use the knob or your mechanical key.

To replace the batteries, proceed as follows:
