When I try to lock the Aura deadbolt, it makes noises but doesn’t lock.

Aura may not have been ‘handed’ properly. (The ‘handing’ process allows the lock to determine which direction to extend the deadbolt.) Aura will automatically ‘hand’ the first time it powers up. If you need to re-hand the lock, please see videos and documents on Aura Support Page.

Aura might be jamming. Check that the bolt hole is at least 1” deep so the bolt fully extends. Check that the door closes properly so that when the deadbolt is extended, it is going into the bolt hole and not hitting the deadbolt strike or door frame. Check that the mounting screws securing the exterior keypad are not over-tightened.
