    Yale Z-Wave Deadbolt Plays a Song

    Weird thing has been happening every once in a while when locking my Yale Deadbolt via Z-Wave - It plays a little song for 3-4 seconds.
    I looked in my documentation and I don't find anything.
    The batteries are showing at 58% so I'm wondering if this is a friendly warning that my batteries are getting low?

    Has anyone else experienced this song?

    I've had mine for about 3 years now, I believe that sound is when the deadbolt cannot extend all the way.

      Thanks for the reply.
      When I say song, I mean a melody not the beep-boop beep-boop-beep-boop it does when the deadbolt is restricted.

      So as an update, I replaced the batteries for piece of mind since they are over a year old. Wow, I forgot how fast the deadbolt closes!
      I'm guessing now that the melody is a reminder to install fresh batteries.

        I've never heard that and had my batteries below 10% before. I only get tones when restricted. I have audio off, do you have it on?

            If the bolt is jamming it will play a tune. Have a look at the attached link item 4

              No really, it plays a tune. I mean literally a 5 second melody.
              The video shows the deadbolt not moving and I've heard that before when I had to make some adjustments - I have heard that beep-boop beep-boop-beep-boop before.

              I haven't heard the song since I swapped in new batteries so I bet it was a 'friendly' warning.
