UPDATE January 1, 2020: I've raised my rating to 2 stars because some of the confusion is due to Amazon's policy of listing multiple versions of the same basic product on one screen and then combining the reviews and questions answered - making it impossible to tell what features or reviews are associated with the item you purchase. This might be OK for socks of various colors but it makes no sense for a lock with different "smart" systems.I purchased the Yale lock Connected by August. A couple of days ago, the features in the August app all started working, both over Bluetooth and over the web. [A quick test of web function is to turn on Airplane Mode, which turns off Bluetooth and Cell coverage, but you can leave your WiFi on.]The app-based features are useful: remote lock, remote unlock, and remotely monitoring if the door is open or closed [if you installed DoorSense]. If you turn on Notifications, you will see onscreen [or on your Apple Watch] when the lock is operated - manually or by software.The AutoUnlock with your phone in your pocket works fairly often, but if there is any interruption in the signal or you shut down the phone. You usually can't figure out what went wrong, but if Notifications is enabled you will at least get a warning that it won't unlock the door so you can put down all your grocery bags. It's faster and easier at that point to manually key in your opening sequence rather than fish out the phone.I did find a partial workaround that allows me to shop nearby and still have AutoUnlock work: I manually moved the "lock radius" setting a few blocks the other direction from where we shop, while still including our home. Once I walk east 1.5 blocks, the Notification tells me that AutoUnlock has been engaged and I can shop, eat, go to the library, etcetera and the door will [usually] AutoUnlock when I return home.I was able to get Apple's "Home" app to work locally using Bluetooth. In typical Apple fashion, it is easy to install, add the lock, and use - and offers multiple ways to control the lock. However, it does NOT show whether or not the door is opened so the Yale deadbolt could be remotely engaged on a wide-open door! Siri also controls the open/close feature. To add remote control over the web, you need a hub. Since I already had a recent iPad, I set it up as a hub and it worked fine.Despite assurances from multiple August support reps and the claims on the Amazon site, Connect with August will NOT WORK WITH A WINK HUB. The app appears to connect to Wink but the functions don't work! Turns out that the Wink hub is only compatible with the Z-wave/ZigBee controller version.ALEXA DOES NOT WORK DIRECTLY WITH CONNECT BY AUGUST, contrary to their claims on Amazon and the advice of multiple August reps. Amazon does sell an Echo Plus that incorporates a hub, but that too is incompatible with Connect by August! THE ECHO PLUS IS A ZIGBEE HUB, ONLY COMPATIBLE WITH THE Z-WAVE/ZIGBEE CONTROLLER VERSION.So, my current suggestion would be to buy the Connect by August version ONLY for use with the August App. To add voice control or other advanced features, you'll need to buy/have the correct hub and it's nearly impossible to determine what will work until you set it up and try it.I'd rate this lock considerably higher if Yale offered clear guidance on how to get it to work with non-August apps before you purchase it. Until then, if your expectations are pretty low, you might be happy with Yale with Connect by August.ORIGINAL REVIEW: I’ve been eagerly waiting a Bluetooth enabled smart deadbolt that would let me walk up to the back door with my hands full of groceries, tools, grandkids or whatever and have the door auto-unlock. My car does this flawlessly.Turns out with the August implementation, you have to go several blocks away from home for this to work, so if I go to the 5 restaurants, 2 grocery stores, 2 drugstores or the local library that are our most common destinations – or just take a walk around the block – the auto-unlocking feature is turned off. There is a manual over-ride option in the August app but it takes 7 taps in 4 different screens to implement; going to the Home screen and taping the red or green circle, takes 3 taps. Hands-free auto-unlocking is one of several promises Yale makes but only partially delivers.That’s a pity because the lock itself is one of the best I’ve ever installed: rugged, clear written instructions, nice drilling templates, all screw options included. The lock installation & setup video within the August app is also quite good. I had no issues with installing the lock itself and it worked smoothly immediately. Programming the Master Code and my Personal Code also went well so I was really pleased with this adventure and felt more comfortable with the premium price for this combo.The nightmare [shared by numerous purchasers according to Amazon reviews] was with installing and using the features of the August Connect that is required for remote control or monitoring After reinstalling the August radio and Connect Wi-Fi bridge three times to make sure I didn’t miss anything in the instructions, I called Support and they were very friendly and talked me step-by-step through multiple installation and troubleshooting tips. Nothing worked so they concluded the bridge was defective and promised to send a replacement “within 7 business days”. They sent an email later that day requesting proof of purchase which I sent. The replacement never shipped.The more time spent with this lock, the more my confidence in August plummeted. I decided to call Support again and spoke with a different rep who had me to do the same troubleshooting done previously and came up with a different explanation: my Wi-Fi signal wasn’t reaching the bridge. He referred me to Apple support to accomplish that and said to email August support and he’d call me back or another rep would. Apple support was fantastic, explained every step of the process with the router, and I soon had cabled the two routers together, logged onto the slow channel with my phone and sent Support an email asking for a call back.When no one had called me back after 45 minutes, I called support again and got a third person. She too was very friendly and walked me through the script redoing the same troubleshooting and installation steps for a third time. Although she could see that the bridge was connected to my new 2.4 GHz channel the install still failed and the August app confirmed that my Wi-Fi and Bluetooth signals were both too weak. That made no sense because both signals were strong on my phone when I stood in front of the lock.This rep put me on hold and came back shortly to tell me there is a glitch in their app and my signals were actually OK! She told me to ignore the error messages, close the app, and just try the Bluetooth features. Locking/unlocking and seeing whether or not the door was closed using the Door Sense feature worked with Bluetooth!Alexa control has never worked with multiple Echo devices. Using Alexa on my phone, I can lock/unlock the deadbolt if I’m standing in front of the door, but August doesn’t work with the Echo, Tap or Dot devices in my home. The August Smart Home app that’s required is rated less than 3 stars with about half the users finding it unusable, as I did. Despite over an hour with Support from Amazon and multiple August support calls, Alexa control remains impossible even though it works flawlessly with multiple other smart devices in my home. August says, “there’s no problem on our side”.Although it’s not consistent, I have sometimes been able to lock/unlock the door when standing in front of it with:• Alexa on my phone• Siri voice control on my phone• The August app on my Apple WatchThe Yale advertising says: “Works with Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple Home Kit (Siri), Simplisafe, Airbnb, Home Away and more” and the August app has a Wink hub link under “Works With” but although the lock was recognized in the Wink app it couldn’t be controlled. In the Amazon Q&A sections, the Yale rep responded to “What Alexa enabled hubs work with this lock? A: The lock can be controlled via Alexa when used in conjunction with a SmartThings or Wink hub. By Yale Rep on May 1, 2018When I asked the 6th support rep to help me get this hub to work, she said, “Wink doesn’t work with the Yale lock you purchased. It only works if you buy the August lock.” Another disappointing surprise...Amazon reviews show that one quarter of purchasers rate the Yale/August lock less than 3 stars. One fifth rate it as only 1 star, which has been my experience too. If you skip August and just buy the lock, you’ll avoid countless frustrations and save money too.SUMMARY:Strengths = good electronic touchpad lock that promises voice, WiFi, and Bluetooth controlWeaknesses = Finicky WiFi connection, buggy app, Advanced features don’t work out of the box, Support reps contradict each other

I finally found the perfect lock. I never leave reviews but I was so frustrated in my search for the perfect lock and so happy with what I found, I thought I would recount my saga to help anyone in my same position. I am an iPhone/iPad guy that likes to use Google Home wherever possible. It is a little tough to manage integration with Siri and Google Assistant but I mostly have it licked - except for the lock which had been the bane of my existence. I started with the Yale Nest lock. Should work great with google, right? It does, except google can only lock the door, not unlock it. I understand why for security purposes, but it defeated the purpose I was looking for - not having to use a key OR the keypad when my hands were full. I wanted quick and easy entry. I was going to set up a simple Siri shortcut so I could tell my Apple Watch to unlock the door, and it would tell Google. No dice. Strike one.I next tried the Sledge Sense. It says it works with Google Assistant and Siri. I knew going in that Google would not unlock this door either, but I read that Siri would. I figured I could make this work. I’ll leave all my google routines for inside the home (lock doors before bed, lock doors for when I am about to leave, etc.) and then just use a Siri routine for returning home (unlock door and disarm security system). Strike 2. First, the Sense does work with Google and HomeKit, but not at the same time. You have to choose one or the other. So no double routines. Still figured I could just cut the locking out of my Google routines by making it auto lock and then run it just on HomeKit to unlock with Siri. This kind of worked, but your iPhone has to be unlocked in order for Siri to unlock the door. This means that you cannot use Siri to unlock the door with your Apple Watch while the phone is in your pocket. So still not accomplishing the easy entry I was looking for.I was tired of spending money on locks that didn’t do what I wanted and about to give up when I decided I would give this one a try. And I struck gold. First of all, it works with Siri and Google, though I didn’t even bother to set it up with Siri because of the geofencing discussed below. Second, Google actually CAN lock AND unlock this one, unlike the other 2. You do have to speak your code Google to unlock which still makes quick entry awkward, but at least you can use google to unlock the door for a visitor if you are in another room of the house. But the best part is you don’t need to rely on Google OR Siri to unlock the door for yourself when coming home. Just set up geofencing with the Bluetooth on your iPhone, and it will unlock automatically when you get close.This has everything I was looking for in a lock. It seems to be well built and was easy to set up and get running. It still has a few little quirks that are annoying but not fatal. My only real complaint is how you wake up the keypad if you want to do a manual code entry. You would think you would press the home icon on the top but you would be wrong. You might also hope that you could touch anywhere on the screen to wake it up, but that’s not it either. Instead, you have to press on the bottom left hand side of the screen where the check mark would be (except you can’t see the check mark at that point because the screen is asleep). This is not a big deal at all once you get used to it, but I could see this being very confusing if I have a guest coming to my house and I just give them the code to punch in for the door. I’m sure I will be getting a few calls that the keypad “doesn’t work." I wish they would fix this. Also, I don’t think you can manage pin codes from the app. It appears you have to do this from the keypad. I might be wrong as I haven’t looked into this very much yet, but if you are someone who manages a lot of key codes (Airbnb), you need to look into this and this may not be the lock for you.Otherwise, I am so very thankful that I took a chance on this lock. It is everything I was looking for and more. I am buying 2 more for my other doors!

Relatively easy installation with mid-level DIY skills and equipment. Integrated easily with Alexa. Easily create unique users and codes through the Yale app.

Amazing product that add substantial security to your house! It is very simple to install and pretty much comes with everything you need and simply connects to Alexa for that autonomous home feel.

It works pretty well overall.One complaint I have is that it cannot connect back to wifi automatically, once the wifi is cut off. We have to manually reset it and physically access the lock. We are away from the house most of the time and want to control it fully remotely. However, I guess if electricity is ever out, it can still work as a lock but we will lose the remote control.

I purchased this as a replacement for my z-wave schlage lock, which worked but needed a hub and the only real alternative was Wink who's service is trash. Any way the feature set for this lock is absolutely miles ahead of Schlage. it came with its own hub that allows for WiFI connectivity, it has a sensor that allows you to know when your door is open, the auto lock feature is great. and the wifi connection works great. if you are in the market for a good smart lock, dont sleep on this one

I had a Yale lock (Z-wave) for 8 years. It was good but stopped working last week. I ordered YRD226 with the wifi module. Installation was easy. I can't get the wifi bridge to work with my Samsung S22. The app (both the Yale and August apps) froze and locked up. I called technical support. One lady was very helpful and told me that there is a bug with the Android version and got me to try it on an iPhone. It worked. Then I tried it on an old Android 9 phone (4G), and it worked as well. I called technical support again. The gentleman who answered told me that these locks don't work with 5G phones and they will introduce new locks which will work with 5G. I tried to tell him that it is most likely a software issue and in the worst case involves the Wifi Module. It didn't make any sense to market new locks for that rather than trying to fix the problem. He had no idea what I was talking about.Since the product description on Amazon (and the Yale website) did not mention that it will not work with 5G phones, I would expect to have a replacement module that works or a confirmation that the app is fixed. I like the lock and I don't want to return it, but I want it to work with my phone as advertised.

The lock has but working great as expected. There is only one flaw, it has started disconnecting quit frequently and reconnecting itself. I’m not sure why, my WiFi company has checked my WiFi and there aren’t any issues. But other than that, there aren’t any issues with the lock.Update 04/11The lock is still working great, but I have had to change the batteries every 3-4 weeks. I installed the lock on 02/04, that is the issue why the lock keeps disconnecting from the internet and flashing red.Update 05/19Contacted Yale support team because the batteries keep dying every 3 to 4 weeks. I went back and forth with them for days, they finally agree to send out a new lock. Received the lock today, and it a used broken lock that was tossed in a box with a label. This company is absolutely horrible and unprofessional to send out that already damaged.

We went through several Schlage locks...they all had various issues, namely losing connection. This Kwikset has plodded along with no problems.It has a lot of features to get used to. Turning the sound off, sounds good, but, you don't know when it is responding to your touch, which led to a ton of mis-entries.Having it lock automatically sounded good, but, confused a ton of people and seemed to disable the keypad for 10-15 seconds making it hard to get back in.
December 23, 2022
The lock works great as for the code and kwikset rekey functions. The kwikset app on my Android would never locate the lock when trying to pair, but not that big of a deal to me. I do love the auto lock feature. Overall it is a great lock. It was a hit around the house 🙂
December 11, 2022
2nd UPDATE:After three more months, batteries are at 80%. Again, I don’t remotely un/lock more than a few times per week. Still, I’m very pleased with battery life and the lock overall.UPDATE:Battery Life - Despite facing the hot Texas sun, my system still indicates this locks batteries are at 90% after two months. While it is in constant communication with my alarm system, I do not often use the motorized lock. I more often manually lock/unlock from the inside, which clearly conserves a lot of battery. I suspect that if you use the motorized lock on average 5-7 times/week, you’ll likely get 6+ months from a set of batteries.Quality - Some have expressed concerns over plastic parts. However, the lock itself and external housing, along with the locking mechanism (including inside locking handle), are all metal. Only inside components (eg electronic housing) are plastic on this lock.=====…waiting for the other shoe to drop.Got this deadbolt because Kwikset is compatible with other keyed locks in the house and this unit is compatible with Alarm.com. Concerned about the numerous negative reviews regarding battery life, but after our first week, this lock still reports 100% battery despite being installed on a door that faces the Texas afternoon sun.The lock motor itself is somewhat weak and definitely requires having ZERO friction when locking/unlocking.
September 5, 2022
Update after 6 months of use:Battery life is an issue, reduced rating to 4 stars. The batteries in these vary greatly in how long they last. I have two of these on my garage doors, and the rear one will last several months, while the front one (which sees more use) will only last 1-2 months, at most. I have replaced the batteries with rechargeable ones, but it's still rather annoying to change them this often. The other issue that I have with this lock is that you have to remove screws to change the batteries, which makes the lack of battery life just that more annoying.2nd update: I called Kwikset about the battery issue, and they did some quick troubleshooting. After finding no error codes or issues with the lock, they are sending me a replacement. The battery life was getting worse, lasting 2-3 weeks at most, with almost no use. I will continue to update this review once I receive a replacement.3rd update:The replacement from Kwikset was much better than the original. The battery lasts 3-4 months or more with occasional use, and I've switched to Eneloop rechargeable batteries for most devices in my home. I think I wouldn't hesitate to purchase one of these again, but would definitely call Kwikset for a replacement if they have a battery consumption issue.Original review:This is the 4th Kwikset deadbolt I've installed in my home, and the 3rd one with Z-Wave technology. I've put these on all the exterior doors of my home, and the installation is fairly easy. The instructions are well written, and if you have basic home-repair tools (screw drivers, maybe a small drill, and maybe a chisel) you'll be able to install these without too much trouble.The only trouble you might run into is if your door doesn't have a standard opening, or more likely, if your latch plate recess isn't the same shape and needs to be enlarged. The deadbolt comes with a much heavier duty latch plate that uses 4 screws - 2 short, 2 long - to secure your door better. The longer screws will go into to wall and make it much harder to kick the door in. However, if you have side-lights, you may have to use the shorter screws. This latch plate is slightly over-sized, so you may need to spend a few minutes carefully enlarging your latch plate recess with a chisel.As far as the Smart-Home integration, my Ring base station paired quickly, and integrated with the Ring controls with absolutely no issues. While this exact model isn't listed as "Works with Ring" certified, it appears that all the 91X series Z Wave locks work with Ring.Kwikset also has a "Smart Key" feature, which allows you to easily set your lock to existing keys. This takes just a few seconds to do, and works with most standard home keys.The fit and finish is excellent, and the "Contemporary" style looks great with a craftsman style door. I paired this with a Kwikset Signature Vedani door handle, which I think compliments the styling quite well.I have read some other reviews that mention battery life can be hit or miss, so I'll keep and eye on the use and level. My lock is close to a Z Wave repeater, and should see limited use, so hopefully I'll get more than a few months out of the batteries.

I've been struggling with Schlage locks on my Hubitat platform for 3+ years since migrating from Wink. With one installed at the front door and one at the back, I've been through a total of five failed units. I don't know why Schlage can't figure out their QC and warranty policies on these locks, but it's embarrassing for them.Since all of my locks, including non-smart ones, are keyed alike - I felt locked-in and didn't want to change brands for just one or two doors.***IMPORTANT*** - this is not a well documented feature, but this lock can be re-keyed alike with other Schlage locks by ordering a replacement SC1 keyway with Kwikset's patented SmartKey technology to allow you to match keys yourself with no special tools or training. This is a big deal to me, since I can keep all the other Schlage locks but benefit from this lockset, which is: 1. Much less expensive. 2. Much more available in retail channels. 3. More compact and 4. So far, much more reliable. Throw in the z-wave 700 series radio and this is a NO BRAINER.The SC1 keyways aren't that easy to find or determine the correct part number, but as an example, I ordered Kwikset P/N 85174 in black finish to match my Bronze lockset. Easy to install, easy to rekey, and finally freedom from Schlage's failed ecosystem.BTW - I'm still waiting, 11 weeks now, for the most recent warranty replacement to the failed Schlage lockset this item replaced. I haven't decided yet what to do with it whenever it arrives, because when the other Schlage lock in our house fails, it is going to be replaced with another one of these...

I love the way this lock looks. I have the matching lever (SmartCode 917) on the front door as well as the back, as well as the Halo Touch model on the back door so both entry doors looks sharp and modern. The build quality is what I expect from Kwikset; durable, sturdy, and solid. I like the smart key feature so I can minimize the number of physical keys I carry. Installation was on par with other locks, straight forward and the included instructions were clear. This isn't my first smart lock. I have their wifi lock on my back door and have had a previous z-wave Kwikset locks on my previous home. I was able to add this lock to my SmartThings app easily enough. My one disappointment is there seems to be no way to add this lock to my Google Home, despite what Kwikset itself says. All information I could find is how to add a Kwikset wifi lock to Google Home, not their z-wave or zigbee locks. According to their FAQs, this lock should be compatible with Google Home, but the only other information they give is 'consult the home automation system.' There is no option in Google Home to add a Kwikset z-wave lock, only the Kwikset app itself, which their z-wave locks are not included. Other than that, I really like this lock. I'm slowly making my home into one that is truly mine and that includes changing out more traditional hardware throughout. The contemporary look of this lock, coupled with its smart capabilities, is a big step in that direction.
September 9, 2022
Got this for two reasons1- keypad option to get in if I lose my keys or don’t have them on me.2- Zwave let me integrate with Alarm.com and control with my phone/alarm panel/web interface. I can manage passcodes using these services and have the door lock synced up.From a trust standpoint I’d rather have the paid alarm service control my lock than a free app from the lock company…just saying.Check with your provider though. Rip-off companies like CPI or ADT probably won’t let you add things they don’t sell you - move to Alarmgrid and take control of your own hardware!!!

Our Schlage keypad deadbolt lock broke after 8yrs of service. I decided to replace it with the Yale Assure Z Wave smart lock to integrate it with our SmartThings (ST) hub.Installation was very easy. The only issue I ran into was the deadbolt mechanism did not operate smoothly when I first installed it. The installation diagram mentions you need to check that it moves freely at each step of the way and although I thought I followed the directions it was still sticking. It appears the deadbolt mechanism and the interior/exterior covers have very small tolerance so you need to constantly check for smooth operation while mating and fastening them through the deadbolt mechanism (it might help with an extra pair of hands).One thing I dislike is the included rectangular strike plate for the door frame. It would have been nice if Yale provided a plate with a lip.As for programming the lock, there are many reviews/comments saying this Z Wave lock does not show who unlocked the deadbolt in the ST app log. This is inaccurate. You can see who unlocked the deadbolt if you follow the directions below:1) Follow the directions that came with the lock including the step where you set your master entry code2) DO NOT create regular entry codes using the keypad. If you created entry codes from the lock's keypad, ST history log will only show "Code 2" or "Code 3" as the one who unlocked the deadbolt. If you created codes using the keypad, you'll have to do a factory reset and start over.3) Open the ST app on your phone (I'm using an iPhone app) and on the upper left corner of the screen, tap the three horizontal bars (menu bar)4) Select SmartApps5) Add the Smart Lock Guess Access widget by tapping on it6) Once the widget is added, you'll see the widget on the main screen. Select the widget.7) In the upper left corner of the widget screen, select Lock Codes and then select Invite Guest8) Complete all three fields and save them for each account you are creating. The info provided in the "Who will be using this lock?" field is what will be shown in the log.9) You can click on 'History' in the upper right corner and you'll see that each account has been created with a date/time stamp.10) Users can start using their entry codes immediately. However, their unlock history will not be logged. It seems it takes 4-6 hrs for the user log history to be activated in ST. After 4-6 hrs, when a user unlocks with their code, the history log will show the date/person/time of when the deadbolt unlocked.11) You can turn on notifications in the ST app and iPhone to notify you each time the deadbolt is unlocked.

I was probably spoiled by the feature set of my August lock, because the Yale Assure Lock SL with Z-Wave, Key-Free Touchscreen Deadbolt is a dunce by comparison.The one thing it does well is connect to the Ring Alarm Z-wave hub - - but integration with Ring means forfeiting most of the remote functionality afforded in the August app. That means actually having to touch the lock's screen (complete with using a "master code" and having the five-fold paper manual in front of you translate the functions into push-button sequences) to adjust the volume, enable the inside indicator, configuring one touch or delayed locking,.... basically anything except assigning user codes.Speaking of user codes.... the stand alone lock permits 6 digit user codes, but once it's connected to Ring, you're limited to 4 digits - - (connecting the lock to my home security system limits codes to 4 digits instead of the native 6 - - go figure).There's no geo-fencing, no one-time user codes (huh?), and no time constrained (schedule based) codes (The Ring app politely informs me, "Schedules can't be used with smart locks at this time"). . The lock has no "door sense" feature to tell you if the the door's been left ajar. Quite oddly (stupidly?), the auto lock time delay can't be set to more than 30 seconds.To its credit, keypad entry is smooth, and the more classic manual deadbolt knob confuses less people than the August's hulky mechanism. Installation was easy and required no retrofits to our existing door or latch bores.Mercifully, the lock connects to Alexa via Ring. Alexa allows locking and unlocking to be controlled in routines. I used the Ring alarm door sensor "closed" as a trigger to auto lock after a wait period of my choosing.Overall I'm underwhelmed both with the device's native feature set and the primitive Ring alarm integration. The Alexa connector allows for adequate automation - albeit without geo-fencing. It's one of the very few locks that is certified to work with the Ring alarm Z-wave hub, and the Prime Day pricing wooed me over.

Install was self explanatory and easy, and synced right up to my ADT system with a few presses of some buttons

This lock could use a back-lit keypad.Other than that, works great!

Summary:1) Needs a compatible hub, see list below2) Your interior thumb shaft may not light up correctly, just cosmetic problem, doesn’t affect functionality. And if your savvy you can take apart the lock with a few small Phillips screws and fix it yourself.It’s a cool lock. Just for clarification, when the description said that you can connect the lock to your phone with a third party controller I assumed you could use Alexa or google home...not the case. I reached out to kwiksets support form online about connecting it to my phone and here was their reply:“Your Smartcode 888 unit requires a third-party HUB to be able to work remotely, depending on the HUB you get you will download their app, we have listed a few Z-Wave HUBs you can use down below.Z-Wave HUBs:1. SmartThings by Samsung2. Honeywell3. Wink4. ADT alarm5. Ring Alarm6. Vera“A bad note:I have replaced all the door hardware in my house before and this was no different EXCEPT the turn piece shaft that the interior thumb knob connects to was positioned upside down and wouldn’t line up (other people had the same issue it seems). I think it is really just a cosmetic thing because you can install it with the internal knob upside down it will just look a little funny. I could have returned and had it replaced but I just decided to take the cover piece off, the motherboard snaps on and off with clips and I think there was one more cover to get to the motor, I rotated it to the correct position and reinstalled everything and now now the interior knob is rotated correctly.I haven’t bought a hub yet, without being able to lock and unlock remotely, I decided to created 5 random codes that are active in addition to my code. if anyone needs to get in my house I’ll Text them an active code to get in and I will delete the code when I get home and create a new one to replace it. Takes 5 seconds.

I bought this thru Amazon refurbished 8/1/2020. The finish on the upper right corner had a small ding; which didn't matter to me; so happy with the price.I had to run ZWave exclusion on it since it was probably paired with original purchaser's network. Once I figured that out it was easy to connect to my SmartThings hub. Happy with that, full remote unlock/lock via SmartThings wherever I am.Install was relatively simple, and would have been shorter had I not rushed and had to redo a few steps. The hardest part was routing out the striker plate on the jamb to use the stronger deeper bolts that come in the kit. There's a business opportunity for someone to figure out how to router a door jamb perfectly without over-routering the hell out of it :).Because it was refurb, the original owner must have set their smartkey to it because the provided keys did not turn the lock. Found a youtube video on how to reset Kwikset smartkey without original key. Tedious, but simple work to fix and I got the keys working without issue. It would have been nicer if Amazon refurb team would have done this to ensure the included keys in the kit actually worked.Overall pleased with the fit/finish/quality. If I hit any issues I'll update this review.

I put this on a remote rental property and liked it so much that I purchased a secondo for home. The first one was flawless, but the second one I ran into strange issues. First of all, when you install the connectivity software, it displays 5 options of locks ie 2nd Generation, 3rd Generation, 4th Generation etc. But NOWHERE could I find out WHAT GENERATION was this lock!!! I figured it was the latest so I chose 4th Generation. It then gets you to scan the QR code on the lock, so I guess that is really the important part. However when I finished installing I had a weird issue, where the lock would NOT unlock and the screen showing the big circle was not filled in, just a "broken circle" with the words below in "lock/unclock". Then the lock with continually engage and make a noise every 30 seconds. I was puzzled and could not figure out what was wrong. It also would not UNLOCK using the app. Trouble shooting, I noticed that if the door was open I could unlock and lock using the phone with no issues and that the normal full filled in circle would show GREEN and RED for unlock and locked. I thought maybe the software was wrong so I reset to factory and reinstalled. Same issue. then I though maybe the "sensing" module was not set correctly and screwed around with that!!! Now Im getting REALLY frustrated cause its getting late and i cant get this to work. I look at the TROUBLE SHOOTING section and NOWHERE does it describe this problem. Finally EUREKA!!! I realize that when the door is open and it works perfectly, then compare that to the door shut and it does not.....I notice that the manual close knob is EVER SO SLIGHTLY not fully turned to the right for full lock....and I'm talking about only a 1/4" or less difference in position. So I figure out that the DEPTH of the hole for the dead BOLT to go into is SLIGHTLY not deep enough, thereby causing the lock to think that it is NOT LOCKED. HOLY COW!!!! You'd think a message would come up and tell you that, but there is NO INDICATION or any NOTES I could find describing this simple issue.So drilled it out a bit more, and BINGO!!!! Everything works like a charm.Summary, make sure your deadbolt enters the hole perfectly and completely!!!Aside from that a few minor bugs, like after the connection is made to the network it tests the signal strength and every time it comes back BAD SIGNAL. Again...figured out that the reason is, the Connectivity module is STILL RESETTING and this Test is TOO SOON...just RETEST and its good!Overall I am super impressed, I turned on the Bluetooth auto entry mode and will test that tonight, will be nice to walk up to the door and its unlocked.Still TRYING TO FIGURE OUT how to REMOTELY CHANGE/ADD/DELETE codes. I had read this can be done but have not found out how yet.Hope all this helps someone

For the August/Yale integration the initial setup appears to be designed by someone who said let’s make this as confusing as possible.TLDR: Instructions reference 3 different apps (Bilt, Yale Access, August), setup requires ignoring picture from August app and scrolling down. App freezes during setup on iPhone 12 Pro Max multiple times. Eventually setup is complete and the lock works great. App is fine for daily use after setup.My backstory: I live in a smart home mostly with iOS devices and using HomeKit natively and homebridge for everything else. We have a smart oven, robot vacuums, robot mop, smart locks, MyQ garage door, lights/switches (lutron, hue, brilliant smart home), TVs, sprinkler system, shades, etc... Most are relatively simple to get going with the more difficult requiring some tinkering with network stuff. Yale/August was different and not in a good way.Yale Hardware: We’re replacing a Kwikset Premis that after a few years in the Florida humidity started eating through batteries in days (ended up being corroded on the inside). The hardware of Yale feels substantial, clearly this isn’t their first time designing a lock. They have well thought out seals to prevent moisture from getting in and the mechanical motion is just smoother. Feels more metal than plastic. Also unlike Kwikset (thankfully), to change the batteries doesn’t require me removing 3 screws and the entire decorative backplate...brilliant.Yale/August Install: The initial install of the hardware itself is okay. No instructions are provided other than asking you to download the Bilt app (or using a PDF on the website). That works well enough and soon the lock is installed and working as a non-smart keypad lock. Here’s where it goes south. Yale actually has a smart design, they have the base lock and small modules/cartridges that plug into the lock to enable other features (WiFi, Z-Wave, or Zigbee). Think Nintendo Gameboy cartridges but slightly smaller. For August they include an August module for the lock and a August Connect plug in unit. However the labels on the boxes are confusing (remember no documentation is included and neither Bilt or the PDF on the website that you can search to find on the product page has instructions for this). The Yale stuff says use the Yale Access App (August app clone) and the August stuff says to use the August app. So that’s 3 apps they’re asking you to use Bilt, Yale Access, and August. In reality ditch the Yale Access and go right for August. Let my suffering clear that up for you.Once you navigate to the August app to make the non-smart lock...smart that’s where it comes unhinged. After setting up an account in August you’ll see a “Set Up a Connect” button...you’ll think oh that’s what I have. Click that and it’ll walk you through how to set up connect and then tell you that you don’t have a supported lock. Try to call August...they don’t answer. It’s chat or email only with them. Turns out that despite no clear indication in the app and no instructions presented that you can actually scroll down. Seriously no scroll bar (hidden until swiping) and the buttons are spaced in a way that appears to fill up the screen without presenting a hint of options below. Once the user scrolls down the last option is “Set Up a Lock Connected By August”. It doesn’t really look like a button and it seems to imply to use the above but you can actually press it. Doing so allows the user to pair the August module/cartridge with the lock...great. Except it freezes after the firmware update. But no worries after closing and relaunching the app all is good and I can connect to the lock via Bluetooth. Now the user can go back to set up a device and select the “Set Up a Connect” button and pair the plug in August Connect. That also locked up during set up after it was trying to connect to WiFi. Additionally the app reported both wifi and Bluetooth to the lock signals were weak or non-existent when testing (they weren’t the app later shows excellent/good signal for both after a force quit). After that August is intuitive and basically anyone can figure out how to change the settings on the lock. It’s easy going from that point onwards. Except one thing that annoys me. Yale allows an 8 digit code for the lock...August only allows a maximum of 6. Oh well, life goes on.Features/Use: The lock responds almost instantly to commands, settings are easily accessed in the August app, and it’s overall reliable in my few days of use. Even the exterior keypad is fast and easily readable in sunlight. Aside from the poor install experience I’m happy with the feature set and day to day use.Actual Install Instructions for Yale/August:1. Install the Yale lock using the PDF from the website or the Bilt app. Set the master code on the lock.2. Install the August app.3. Create your August account and then when adding a new device scroll down to “Set Up a Lock Connected By August”. Pair the August cartridge/module to the lock as instructed. Update firmware, etc... as instructed during the install. Complete that process for Bluetooth access to the lock. This pairs the cartridge that fits in the lock with the lock itself.4. For the module that plugs into the wall go to set up a new device and “Set Up a Connect”. Follow the steps and don’t despair if it locks/freezes during setup. Just reattempt or see if it worked even if it gave an error. That should complete the install.

This is my second tale lock I have bought. Since my previous lock is not being supported for Amazon key anymore (plus it’s installed in a different location), I went ahead and bought a wifi version of that previous lock I’ve had for about 4 years now.It works just like the other lock except this one doesn’t use a camera and zigbee for its connection.Because it’s straight wifi, it takes the commands from the app much quicker.It is a bit pricey, but I like the quality and build of the unit that’s why I bought it a second time.I can say the same things I said about my first one, it works well if installed correctly. I love being able to tell Alexa or use the app to lock and unlock the door. Also the batteries last a good while even in extreme weather, if you change them once a year as recommended. I’m in NY and it’s getting colder but I don’t fear the batteries will fail, as they never have before. Even if they do, there’s an actual key as well to use like a plain old lock.Overall, I like having smart devices in my home and I like the smart lock since the first one I bought. Especially for deliveries as we usually aren’t there when deliveries happen but I can unlock the door remotely to have them place the packages inside and then lock it afterwards instead of having the packages stay outside until someone gets home.I haven’t carried my keys in about 5 years. I recommend it to anyone while likes smart or automation upgrades to their homes or who want piece of mind for deliveries. Make sure to couple it with a camera so you can see the delivery being, well, delivered inside your home.

I really liked the fact that this lock (which replaced a preferably nameless 'smart' lock, which in turn replaced an aging Weiser 'dumb' electronic lock) was able to be installed into the existing mess of holes on my steel clad outside door with only the use of a screwdriver in about half an hour! It really can't get any easier than that!The lock mechanism itself is well constructed and so geared that it is light and effortless to close, both by knob and electronically. It feels as solid as a bank vault. Yale is the global consumer brand within the Swedish ASSA ABLOY Group. Both companies are well known in the industry and have excellent reputations. The particular model I chose (Connected by August) has the electronics module designed by August, which was an independent third-party smart lock. Now Yale and August are both owned by ASSA ABLOY.Unfortunately the integration of the software hasn't been as smooth as one would hope. I'm sure future app versions will address this, but currently it's easy to get confused by the many different apps and which item is which within the apps. Fortunately Yale's tech support is excellent and very helpful. In fact, I originally bought the Z-Wave model because I wanted to integrate it with Alexa, but the Yale tech support person recommended that for my particular set of circumstances I should return the item I bought and replace it with this model, and was he ever right! Amazon made it very easy and a few days later I was up and running.The only thing I still have to do is clean up the damage left by the two previous locks, which, in a metal door, ain't that easy! But, I'll get there...The most difficult part of the entire installation was the August Connect module which connects to the lock via Bluetooth and then rebroadcasts via WiFi and also in reverse takes in WiFi and uses BTLE to talk to the lock. Problem is finding an electrical outlet that meets their specified distance (10 ft). I had one that met the distance but was around the corner and generated a "Your signal is too weak" error and the other one was line of sight but about 15ft away and it simply couldn't reach it. Yale tech support suggested I ignore the "too weak" warning and sure enough, it worked. I was already trying to figure out how I could get an extra outlet hooked up near the door but it didn't prove necessary.FWIW, my original Weiser worked well, but I wanted the ability to add more control so I bought a different brand which worked. but didn't have the. Bluetooth range extender, and wasn'tf very well constructed because within 6 months some of the cast metal parts inside the lock had snapped! It is now in the recycle bin and I'm somewhat poorer but a lot better educated!Buy the best and only cry once!Pictures from L-R are outside view of installation, keypad lit up, batteries and immediately above the batteries is wher the module plugs in, the 10ft outlet location and the 15ft location.

Seems more of a budget lock vs other kwikset keypad locks I’ve bought and installed at my home. I thought this was a great Prime Day deal - but seems inexpensive compared to my other keypad locks. Works fine and looks fine,

First of all this is NOT a smart lock. If does not connect with Alexa or Google and doesn't have an app either.That being said, it's PERFECT for use in both indoor / outdoor spaces (not weatherproof but if protected from elements it should do just fine).I bought this because I wanted to have access from the garage door without having to use my keys, same as my patio ... sometimes I would be locked out because my family didn't know I was outside working on something, so this fixes that problem!OK, so why 4 starts instead of 5? First of all, the manual lock is very tight, makes you think you're not supposed to turn the lock. It's also loud and the keys have to be pressed relatively slowly or it won't work.For the price these are minor things and can totally live with them. I already bought 2 units and probably will get one more soon.

The installation instructions are the best I've ever seen. The diagrams are large enough to clearly see the correct orientation of parts, and the instructions are clear and easy to follow. Granted, this isn't a complex part to install, but I was very pleased to see that they had clearly spent time making the instructions useful. This was a very simple installation, and programming was a breeze.Update after one month: I had to take one star off after a month because the keys have begun to stick a little and not work as well when pressed. I can still get them to work, but it's not as easy a push as it was when I installed this. Hopefully it won't get worse over time. As an outdoor rated lock, I would have expected this to still function as new after one month.

Well, my condo association decided that we had to buy these locks as an architectural requirement. They actually selected the Kwikset 913, but the 914 looks exactly the same but has a ZigBee module for a connected lock.Install: I disassembled my old locks, opened the box, and was immediately dismayed as I went to install. The back plate wasn't in the box (the metal frame used to secure the front housing to the door from the inside). I looked again and again, but it didn't seem to be there. Extremely frustrated, I put my old locks back on the door and started to box this lock back up. Amazon returns make it easy, so I was just going to return and replace. At the last moment, I figured it may save me time and inconvenience if I called the Kwikset customer service line... So I did. I explain the issue, hoping I can coerce them into overnighting a back plate to me rather than having an open box return in Amazon's inventory.The CSA tells me, no... The back plate is there. I assure him, it's definitely not. He says, no... It's attached to the back housing. You just have to get it off. Even looking at it, holding it in my hands, I wasn't really seeing it. Nothing was obviously coming apart. I email his personal phone a picture, and he says, no.. I can see it. He manages to direct my fingers into the right place, and I finally manage to pry this thing off. There aren't any instructions in the documentation. I'm normally very good at this sort of thing, and I swear, this was the least intuitive thing on the planet. It looked and felt like the plate was a part of the locks control housing. I had to force the thing off, concerned I was going to damage something. If you are like me and can't find it, it really is there. It's just frustratingly not obvious or intuitive.Anyways, I get the thing installed with no issues from there.Connecting the Zigbee module: no problems. I have a Smart things hub. It was easy. It works with Google Home pretty easily.Setup and Design: the little switches on the back of the physical housing let you turn on the auto lock, etc. Very cut and dry. The code is easy to program. I had it set up and functioning in no time at all. The Kwikset smartkey thing works really well. I purchased an additional Kwikset deadbolt because our door was cut for it. Setting them up with the same key was easy.Use: the code is easy to put in. The lock is easy to turn with the key and quiet when you put it in and turn. The lock is also quiet and smooth turning the deadbolt from the inside. One big detractor, using the pin code to open the door electronically... This sucker is LOUD. Anyone inside is going to know you've arrived.The IFTT commands to open the lock as my phone connects to my home wifi hub works well. I can hear the lock opening as I come off of my elevator. Even if my home network goes down from a brown out and my phone reconnects and unlocks the door, the auto lock after 30 second will secure the door again.Final thoughts: I only bought this design because I was forced to. Honestly, installed on the door, it is moderately attractive. I like the vibe. I use a hallway passage lever as the main door handle. I'm happy generally. If I want forced to purchase this kit, I would have probably opted for a touchscreen lock rather than one with physical buttons. I'm certain the keys are going to start fading over the just like well used keys on a keyboard. Ass result, I try and avoid using the pin code wherever convenient to extend the new look on the digits. I've had the whole set a few months now. If you like the look, it's a decent set.Do keep in mind that it's got a ZigBee radio and not z-wave, so be sure your home hub is compatible.

Bought this to replace one of the central entry points for our house. I was very impressed with the quality of the lock hardware and installation was a breeze, everything fit together and went in as expected... I installed the lock in about 10 minutes or so, had it working, and setup entry codes right away. The lock itself works great, although I find the "4 finger swipe" to activate the screen is weird and tough to do in a confined space like a door... I'd rather just like tap the screen and go from there. I think actual physical buttons would also be better, you could use it with gloves on for instance, but I get that those are design choices they have to make. Navigating the settings for the lock is pretty strange the first time you do it, but you get used to how it works quickly. Overall I was very happy with the lock itself, installation was a breeze, setup was quick, and it works.The negative experience started with the August SmartModule, app, and any of the software connected to this Yale Smartlock. The August app is poorly made, it looks fine but the user experience is poor with confusing menus and unclear instructions. Setting up the module was frustrating as there were no installation instructions other than "Download the August App!" and I struggled for about an hour getting a Module Registration error and reset loop before finally figuring out I had to delete my the lock I had setup and choose a different option on installation... I wasn't really clear that this was an August Module not an August SmartLock, which... who knows maybe that's something I should have understood, but it wasn't, I don't install these things regularly so without instructions it's unclear what each device is.Once I did get it setup it does *mostly* work but a lot of the build in functionality doesn't work at all... things like Auto-Lock and AUto-Unlock are poor, as far as I can tell, they never work. Enough so that I don't bother trying anymore and instead I unlock the door using the app rather than trusting the auto-unlock. I bought this specifically because we have a newborn and I was hoping to not have to have a handsfree auto-unlock when I got home, but this has no reliability to the point that I don't even trust if my door is locked or not.When you open the app to check the lock status, it's also slow, even with the bridge installed. It often takes 5-10 seconds to get a status update, and sometimes the status changes when it gets the right update of what the lock status is so you ... never quite know if what you're looking at is right or not.Integration with Google Assistant is okay. I was able to set it up pretty quickly using the August bridge, but even the bridge had poor connection to my smart lock one room away. I had to move the bridge into the same room, to the closest outlet which isn't really a convenient outlet (I normally have all of my bridges and smart devices plugged into a central area, which is still very close to the august smart lock, maybe 15 feet away with a clear line of sight), but the connection was poor. Once I did get it connected it does work with GOogle Assistant but it's very slow. If I ask Google Assistant to lock the door, sometimes it asks me for my pin (something I hate saying outloud because ... like what's the point if someone is in ear shot), sometimes it doesn't, and then Google Assistant *Requests to lock/unlock* and often that request can take 20 or 30 seconds to handle. Which at that point it's much slower than me walking over to the lock and engaging it or taking out my phone and using the app.The device works, the lock is great construction, it's easy to use, but the app and August software is bad. Even simple menus and navigating the app is a confusing, poor experience, and for such a simple app it really should be better.

Just what you need with a family on the go. The August module is awesome, I can open my door or lock it from anywhere. Beautiful color qualityfeel and just plain awesome. I have a punch in code and the august phone ability. No more stupid keys to lose, kids don’t have with etc. Very pricey but worth every penny.No key hole to pick. Love it thanks Yale. Keypad prompts/ walks you through setup. Even a chucklehead like me can set it up!

Have had this lock for several weeks. We could not be happier. It not only looks great, but it works great too. We purchased a new entrance door and decided to install a new lock/handle system. Did a lot of research and this one seemed to have good reviews all around, so made the decision to purchase. So glad we did. The install was pretty straight forward and the coding for the lock went pretty smoothly. There was a little confusion on assigning codes to two "owners" but we made a quick call to Yale and they led us through it step by step and then we continued on our own and everything went smoothly. It is a joy not to have to use a key and to have it automatically open is so helpful. Defintely recommend this lock.
November 25, 2022
This smart lock is great. Doorsense is a must have, the door will only lock when closed so you don’t have to worry about the deadbolt extending if the door is left ajar. Also, the proximity feature is so helpful. The door unlocks as I approach it when I arrive home. I never have to enter the code.
November 27, 2022
Installing the lock was pretty straight forward and similar to installing a regular deadbolt (except there's a wire to connect and batteries to install). The lock hardware has been reliable and works great! The App feels a little outdated, but once you figure out where things are and how to navigate it, it gets the job done. My only gripe is the reset button on the bridge, it's right next to a blinking light and a perfect size for a 1yo finger to press and hold. Too bad that is how you reset the bridge... I don't have many options for outlets near my front door, and I have lost count of the number of times my bridge has been reset by the little fingers. It would be nice if you had to insert a pin or something to reset the bridge. If it wasn't for this, I'd give 5 stars.

After having had and used this device and cooperating app for almost 6 months it has some great positives as well as a few things that could be better. First I'll say that installation was relatively easy. I've never installed a deadbolt before, but the instructions were very step-by-step. The only trouble I came into was installing the device that bridges the lock to the wifi. I had a ton of issues until I started playing with the lock and realized that the lock only works and connects correctly when I leave the back battery cover unscrewed. I even tried resetting the batteries several times and nothing worked until I permanently left the battery cover unscrewed. As it is it just sits on top and doesn't ever really seem to move. I also really enjoy the included sensor that tells me if my door is actually shut or open. I feel like this is such a huge feature that most smart deadbolts don't have. And what is the point of your door locking if it's not even actually shut?The app is pretty easy to use. Pretty easy to add people and their codes, can even send a text message through the app to your contact with their pin code. It might be nice to add a simple instruction to that automated text about how to actually input your code and gain entry and exit. The only major issue I had was my first weekend away and my dog sitters were having issues with the lock accepting their pin even though my app was telling me that they were registered with the correct pin code. It seemed like the app was just glitching because I couldn't even load the updated list of entry, locking and exit times. I did uninstall and reinstall the app and connected to both the wifi and my wireless data with no resolution. Finally the next day everything updated and my visitors pin code also worked too.All in all, I do think that this was a good purchase, but there are definitely flaws with both the app and hardware as mentioned. I did attempt to contact Yale's support line on 2 occasions, but it was never answered and my online support submission did not get a response.

Intro:I currently have three (3) of these locks installed on my house - and I love them. This device was actually my first introduction into Z-Wave about 3 years ago (along with a VeraEdge hub). My better half grew up in the middle of nowhere and was never concerned with locking doors. When her mother sold the house she was raised in, I actually had to change the locks, because she couldn't find a copy of the key to hand over at closing!. Needless to say, I spent many years trying to get her into the habit of carrying keys and locking doors with no success - it was time to change tactics. I decided that a smart keypad lock was the way to go and opted to go with the Z-Wave version so I could grow my smart home in the future (little did I know it would turn into an addiction). The lock had worked out great, so much so that over time I replaced all three exterior deadbolts with these.Installation:Lets start with installing the lock. You have, or will likely read some negative reviews about this lock and I can tell you that most issues with the lock operation could be traced back to the installation and the alignment of the door. We have all had door where you have to give it a little "nudge" or pull while turning the key to get it to lock. With a standard deadbolt, this becomes muscle memory and everything works fine, but in reality this means something is not properly aligned. The lock has a tapered end on the deadbolt to help compensate for some minor issues, but if you do not address an alignment issue before or during the installation of this lock, you are asking for trouble down the road as the motor is overworked trying to force the bolt through. Other then the alignment tolerance, and a few extra parts involved with the electronics, conceptually, this is installed no differently then a standard deadbolt. One thing to keep in mind however, is the indoor portion of the lock, which houses the battery compartment, it larger then a typical deadbolt. On one door, I had to sand down few millimeters of trim around the glass panel to make it fit.Z-Wave:These locks paired easily with my Vera Hub. When my Zwave network was very small, I do recall the range being somewhat limited and ended up adding a plug in module nearby to serve as a repeater. As my network has grown, I have not seen any range/connectivity issues. Vera is able to manage PIN codes "out of the box", if you are using SmartThings or other platforms, handlers or smartapps may be required. I am able to assign multiple PIN codes, temporary codes and schedule-limited codes (perhaps for a contractor or dog walker?). Vera can also set up alerts when certain codes are used, or if a bad code is attempted.Physical Functionality:I have always like Kwikset locks for the smart key functionality (you can re-key the lock your self without taking it apart, provided you have the current key) and that feature is included on these locks for the manual cylinder. The keypad is back lit which helps at night, and there is a subtle led status indicator inside to give you quick locked/unlocked confirmation (you can program this on/off). My one complaint (and reason for the 4 stars instead of 5) is the lock is relatively loud when it operates electronically. My family and I are mostly used it at this point and its only for less then a second, but I still wish it was quieter.Battery Life:The lock uses 4 AA batteries and I get at least 6 months of usage, usually more before replacing them at 20% or so. This will vary based on how often the lock is operated electronically and your mileage may vary. I last replaced the batteries in all three locks about 2 months ago and two are at 70% and the third is at 80%.Summary:Overall I am very happy with the lock (all three of them). I have had one in service for over three years and more for about 1.5 years with no issues. The flexibility and assurance I get from having these by far outweighs my only complaint of the sound level.

What a pleasure to install and use. Per another review, I did the z-wave pairing before installing and this was the most difficult part. It took multiple tries to pair, but I don't fault this product for this because this is common with nearly all the z-wave devices I've added to my system.What I like: - Instructions were clear and well illustrated and the install went very smoothly - I can still use a manual key to open if the batteries go dead - I was able to re-key it easily to my existing house keys using the "Smartkey" feature - I could set the open code via my z-wave controller software - the one button lock on the outside of the door is so much quicker than digging my key outWhat I don't like: I would have to really stretch to think of a negative.Highly recommend.

Purchased 620 before this thinking newer model would work better; it was smaller and more quiet but Ring integration was none (so many errors and Kwikset rep did confess that it is not fully supported by Ring perhaps he would tell the customers it doesn't work with Ring so return it). So purchased 910 instead, it works, louder than 620 and doesn't have an option of sliding back cover off to change batteries, only screw in option, but it works flawlessly with Ring alarm system. I would keep this one.

Purchased this because we wanted a way to keep from getting locked out accidentally, and also for Z-wave integration with Vivint. The mechanical potion of the install to refit it into an existing lock was simple. Took a few tries to pair it with the Vivint system but it finally took. Like the convenience of push button entry if I don't have keys, and being able to ensure it's locked remotely.. instead of "did I lock the door?". One thing to note is the lock runs on batteries, so to conserve power if it has not been locked/unlocked for some time, it will drop from the Vivint panel. To have it show again simply lock/unlock via the number pad. Batteries last about 6 months with daily use of going in and out. Will be getting more of this lock for the remaining doors in our home. Great looking, easy to operate, and happy with the purchase.

It's high-time I finally reviewed this thing after installing two-years ago. Previous lock was a Kwikset electronic lock from home depot that was very loud.Pros: The Yale lock install was easy. Batteries last awhile, about 6 months or more depending on how much we use the lock. Mechanism is quieter than previous electronic locks we've used and the lock is very smooth.Cons: Touchscreen is so-so. Looks sleek, however I do miss-press on occasion. The features on this thing are a large reason for the price but we had to turn many of them off. The audible "door locked" is annoying late at night when the house is sleeping. The 'one-touch locking' results in many accidental locks before closing the door, which has damaged our door trim a bit. The auto-locking feature is nice sometimes, but other times it sucks to take the garbage out to come back to a locked door.Overall: Worth the buy for how it looks alone. I may replace for the version with actual buttons, but I would stay with Yale.

Rating on the use of this lock. It is basic and seems to work well. The install was fairly straightforward, although for my particular door it required some adjustments to the door frame with a chisel. For most doors this probably would not be necessary. Once the lock is set up, it works well and is easy to use. Only cons I have experienced is that you can somewhat easily touch the wrong digit and have to start over entering the code again, and if in direct afternoon sun the lock becomes extremely hot and may not work at first.As a side note -- not affecting the rating -- I also purchased two used items that I had to return. This is an Amazon issue, not the lock makers. But, the items were described as "like new" and "very good", and both were extensively damaged and had to be returned.

The media could not be loaded.  I ended up paying a contractor to come and install the lock. I have no handy experience, so that was the best route for us. Whoever it's advertised to be easier for most. I love the lock works reliably.One feature that is lacking is the ability to change the code easily. For this specific model, since it does not sync to an app, we need to remove the face to reprogram. Not a huge deal, but if I had known, I would have splurge for them more expensive version.Ideal scenario is, you can change the lock every so often as you let contractors or people in and out of your house to keep your home safe easily. However, it takes a bit more leg work than that.If you can, buy the upgraded version

I have installed several Yale Assure deadbolts as well as HomeKit enabled smart locks from other brands, and this is by far my favorite! The black finish is very sleek and it matches our matte black hardware quite well. For those who want to control this with a Smartphone, the  Connected by August Kit  is required for HomeKit integration. Alternatively, you can purchase the  Yale Assure Lock SL with August Connect  which simply is these same two components placed into a larger box, and with a $80-90 higher price tag.Installation of this lock requires you to completely remove and replace the existing deadbolt. This is typically done with a phillips screwdriver, and is a very simple 2 minute operation. Once that is removed, the Yale Assure tapered deadbolt latch is installed in the door and the deadbolt mounted around it. After installing so many of these, it takes me less than 2 minutes to do these steps as well. It includes the required four AA batteries, and I suggest replacing them with lithium ion batteries when they expire.The next part can require some extra work, depending on how well aligned your deadbolt is with respect to the latch for the handleset in addition to how well the door seals when it is closed. I suggest attempting to lock the deadbolt with the existing deadbolt strike plate to see how things work before making any changes. I have found that I often have to adjust the handleset strike plate so that it latches with the door squeezed tighter against the seal - this typically requires a chisel to physically relocate the handleset strike plate. Once that is done, install the new deadbolt strike plate such that there is no interference with the deadbolt latch. This step is important, as if the deadbolt rubs against the strike plate it will at best wear your battery prematurely and at worst get jammed.Once that is complete, you can sit back and enjoy the beauty and simplicity that is the Yale Assure Lock SL. I really like that this lock does not have a keyed access. There are quite a few options that you can set on this device, such as volume (including off) and one-touch lock which simply requires you to touch the keypad with your hand to lock the deadbolt - such a timesaver when heading out!I installed the Connected by August module ( sold separately ) and that allows me to control this from my iPhone directly from the August iOS app as well as with HomeKit. From the August app, I set up geofencing, so it unlocks when I return home. From HomeKit, I use “Hey Siri” from my iPhone or Apple Watch to unlock the deadbolt.I should note, I also have an  August Wi-Fi Smart Lock, 4th Generation , and I MUCH prefer this Yale lock over that. The Yale Assure Lock SL simply works better (more reliable WiFi) and has the ability for me to unlock with the keypad.

I’m a bit OCD about making sure the door is locked before I leave home. My wife gets a good chuckle out of it, and is sometimes gets annoyed. What’s worse is getting somewhere and then worrying about whether or not you locked the door. Should you jump in your car to run back to check it? Are you just being paranoid? Can you enjoy whatever you’re doing without worry about your doors being unlocked?The Schlage Z-wave Camelot door lock eliminates those questions. The touch panel gives you a positive checkmark when the door locks, and if you’re out and about when you start worrying whether or not you’ve locked the door, just pull out your phone and check. If it’s not locked, simply slide it to the locked position and be assured that the command has been received and executed at home.The lock has a lot of great features. It can autolock after being open for 30 seconds. It has alarms for tamper and break-in with various sensitivity levels. You can use the open/close status in a Wink robot. You can assign different codes to different people. And you don’t have to worry about getting locked out of the house without your keys.Now, if only pairing with Wink were simple. In theory, it’s supposed to be. In reality, it can cause hours of frustration. If these tips had been spelled out, it would have been very helpful:- Move your Wink hub as close to the lock as possible when starting the pairing. I thought 10 feet line of sight would be fine, but it wasn’t.- Be sure you put brand new batteries in the lock when you start pairing. Don’t rely on the batteries that came with the lock, even if they’re brand new. I worked for a day and a half on one lock. It wouldn’t pair even with the Wink hub 18” from the lock. I finally used a DMM to check the battery voltage. It was 5.97, so I shrugged, thinking it was fine. Later, out of desperation, I decided to change the batteries. With new batteries, the voltage was 6.28, and the lock paired almost instantly.- The Schlage Z-wave relay doesn’t really improve the reception- The Wink app will often say it has paired with the lock, but the green checkmark on the lock doesn’t confirm the pairing. The Wink app is wrong—the lock isn’t paired.- Be sure to use the Z-wave exclude command to delete the lock upon an unsuccessful pairing. This came directly from the Wink help support line. They claimed the exclude feature is more complete at removing the prior failed pairing parameters.- When the lock finally successfully pairs, you may not see an accurate battery level indicator for many hours. This parameter took overnight to read correctly on both my locks.- When you are paired correctly, the locked status should show up in about 4-8 seconds in the Wink app after you’ve opened or closed the lock. Also, changing the lock’s settings, such as the security or number of digits for entry codes, should receive confirmation in the app within 10-20 seconds.- Note that you can’t run the locks through either the scheduler or robots, but you can include them in Wink shortcuts. Wink claims this is for security and safety consideration.- The activity report only shows when the lock has been opened with the Wink application, not when it’s been manually unlocked or when someone has entered with a code. This was quite surprising to me as it means there’s little point to the log. If you have a robot set up you will get a notification on your phone when the lock toggles, depending on what you request.Pros for the lock:- It’s easy to install.- No one has had problems learning how to enter their codes.- It seems quite sturdy and comes with a strike plate that certainly exceeded the security of my doorframe original equipment.- I think it looks great, though my wife thinks it makes the doors look like hotel doors.- The auto-lock feature wherein the lock shuts automatically in 30 seconds is appreciated. Just be sure your door is closed when the lock slams home.Now, some cons for the lock:- The lock only reports the deadbolt’s extended or retracted status. If the door is not closed, but the deadbolt is extended, the lock will say it’s closed. It would be great for the lock to actually sense whether it’s mated to the strike plate.- Using the button on the back to turn on and off the alarm or set the mode never worked very well for me. Maybe I just couldn’t get the hang of it from the instructions. The Wink app works much better to set the alarms.- The tamper alarm is very sensitive. I have the “bludgeon” (forced entry) mode activated.- The programming code for the lock is only 6 digits long, yet you can program in 8 digit entry codes. What’s the point of 8 digit entry codes when guessing the right programming code can get the burglar in the door? Come on, Schlage, the programming code should be 8 digits!- There’s a bit of a security risk since Wink could be hacked, but then again, it’s not hard to pick a lock if you know what you’re doing. Someone who really wants in will just break a window.All in all, I’m pleased with the locks.Update Sept 2015: My Wink hub was damaged by a transient caused by the power company and wouldn't connect to Wifi. There was no way to delete the existing devices from the old hub. Eventually, Wink deleted my account and let me start again with a new hub. I had to use the Z-wave Exclude function to delete this lock. You don't have to reset the lock to "factor condition." Just exclude the lock under the Hub's Z-wave commands, then use the inclusion mode to re-add. If you use the inclusion mode rather than the Add Lock command in the Wink app, you get Schlage specific options such as add users, set alarm types, etc.After initial protest, my wife loves the lock. It lets her get into the house without fumbling through her purse for her keys.

Installation: Super easy to install in a standard deadbolt door. Evidently there are some ways you can run into issues with installation but this installed and was up and running in under an hour.I did some research and even bought the Schlage Sense by mistake when I thought it was this one. Unfortunately I had it re-keyed and installed it before realizing it was the wrong one. So I tried the Sense and Wifi adapter for a while and now have a better understanding of the difference. I now prefer the Connect for what was needed.The main difference between the Sense and Connect are integration with third party systems and other devices. I'll tell you a little bit about the difference from trying both. Rather than a quick summary I'm going to make you read the whole review so you understand the reasons behind it.Sense:Comes with Schlage software for your mobile device, you must create an account but it will do the basic lock/unlock with BlueTooth as well as manage codes, alarms, auto-lock and any other features on the lock. You can buy a plug-in Wi-Fi adapter so you can connect your home of business network to the BlueTooth radio on the device and remotely manage the lock. If you don't have a need to integrate with other home automation this is a very practical and easy to use smartlock solution. You don't need the Wi-Fi adapter if you are just using BlueTooth from your phone, and its often faster to just use the keys you already have in your hand from the car to open the door most of the time. This configuration is most useful for proving a unique door code for others you trust to get in to feed pets, etc.Connect:This lock has the same basic capabilities, in fact it is basically the same lock with a Wi-Fi adapter in place of the BlueTooth radio. The other difference is that Schlage provides no app to remotely manage the door codes, alarms or lock settings which is why it is 4 stars not 5. Although you don't have to buy a separate Wi-Fi adapter you do need to buy a hub that supports Z-Wave and find/configure software to operate the lock settings unless you want to stand outside in front of the lock and punch in codes which kind of defeats the purpose of remote lock management.My goal was home automation and integration with motion sensor doorbells, cameras, lights and other systems. I had picked up the SmartThings hub and some outlets and already had the Ring doorbell and floodlight cam. There are some basic built-in features that are quite useful such as being able to trigger other events on changes in door lock status, lock the door automatically when your phone goes out of range of the house, turn on a light when the door unlocks, etc. This can be integrated with some simple configuration available for free in apps that come with your automation hub and other smart devices and is most of what you need. Here comes the hard part. To manage the lock settings without standing in front of it, manual in one hand punching in codes every time, you will probably need to buy some software or go learn how to write, test and debug scripts in whatever the automation system uses. In the case of SmartThings, there is a community out there and your mileage may vary, I ended up spending < $40 on some device handler and device management scripts to solve it and then had some fairly simple instructions to follow to onboard it. Now I have fully integrated automation and remote lock management. The door locks in the evening at 10 and 12 if someone forgets to lock it. The door locks when any of our phones leave the area if we forgot to lock it. If someone jiggles the door when it is locked a light goes on and the door beeps, if we are away or at night it sends an alert and the tamper alarm goes off. We can add a door code from anywhere and set a schedule of when it will work from anywhere at anytime. We can answer the doorbell camera from anywhere and either let someone in one time or add a code for them on the spot. So yes it took some trial and error and time fiddling with it but now this system does about everything that was expected and a bit more, all from a smartphone except the setup needed one-time for the device handler and smart apps on the web sites.

High 5's for the Schlage Connect deadbolt. I waited for a warm day to install because I thought the front door would be open for hours. The entire process took me 1.5 hours to install start to finish and that included me chiseling out the door jamb in order for the dead bolt to fully extend. I also had to chisel out the door some to match and align everything. I fretted over and over if I had a RH or LH door swing. Reading over the other reviews, product information and searching Schlage's website it just made it more confusing. The installation directions point out that if you want a RH door install one way, a LH door install, rotate a piece in the lockset and you have the other. If I had known that I wouldn't have waiting 4 months to order the thing.the touchscreen works very well and shows no prints. You can operate it with gloves on (it is still winter). I'm looking forward to going for my morning run and not having to take my keys. The hardware is great quality with a hefty feel to it. The lower door attachment goes all the way through the door and you can see it inside. they provide a cover for the bolt that shows inside so it's no big deal. It actually makes the entire lower portion feel stronger.Overall - the look and feel is great, easy to program and add codes. Next is to attach it to my z-wave system and integrate it with home automation.Update 2018 - after having this deadbolt for almost 4 years I'm still happy with it. I integrated it into my z-wave system and I can lock and unlock the door from anywhere with my phone/ipad/laptop. I also have an indoor camera setup with it and whenever someone opens the door - my camera takes a short 30 sec video of them coming and going. I did have to add a sensor to the door to make it all work. Batteries in the lock last about six months. You can tell when they are going out - the lock starts turning slower. Since my door is pretty tight - i always hold the door closed while the lock is turning - that way it doesn't use as much power and never fails to lock/unlock. Still a solid 5 stars from my perspective.

The lock was just what i was looking for. However the brass deadbolt screws would not screw into the deadbolt housing. Threads did not match the bolts. After a frustrating call to Amazon, the CS rep pulled off a miracle and got me a replacement before i had to leave town. The replacement went together perfectly. Disappointed with Schlage QC but very happy with the way Amazon cane through.

The price on this seemed great and I was planning to implement some home automation (HA) features in my new home, so I went ahead and bought it. I installed only the deadbolt first since I couldn't figure out how to drill a hole in the door for the latch/handleset.This was in place for about five months without the HA integration - in that time with twice-daily use, the battery only dropped about 3%. That includes fall/winter weather with low temps in the single digits. I assume now that it's connected to the HA system that the battery life will deplete more quickly since the lockset is polled periodically.So the pros:Good battery life - I don't forsee replacing the batteries but once every 18-24 months.Nice style and qualityintegration with the MiCasaVerde VeraLite z-wave controller was quite painlessOnce installed, extremely convenient - I don't carry keys around, can see who enters the house and when, and can generate one-off codes easily.The cons:If you've never installed a latch handle set and your door isn't pre-drilled, it may require the use of a special drill bit (black oxide tip is what I used - need something rated to drill through metal).It is loud when the deadbolt mechanism is operating.The MSRP is ridiculous and no one should be paying anything close to it.A final note - someone with too much time on their hands house sitting at my house decided to remove the master code sticker from the documentation and it is now nowhere to be found. I thought I might have to buy a replacement lockset since the programming code is required to connect to an HA system or add/modify codes, but Schlage wisely puts a duplicate set of information on the interior side of the deadbolt mechanism - you do have to unscrew it from the door and look on the back, however. A much better solution than having to purchase another lockset.

I installed this on my porch entry door in Northern Maine and was concerned how long the batteries would last, and, if the frost movement of my porch would keep jamming the lock. Installed on June, 2019 and so far no issues. Although, Spring time here is also when we get a lot of ground movement when the frost goes out so, we'll see.Works great on my Samsung Things Hub with Alexa. Love being able to give access for UPS deliveries. Also love that we were able to create many different codes for various people and assign their name to the codes so we can see exactly who (and when) that person opened the door. For security reasons, you cannot unlock the door with Alexa without verifying your Alexa code, which is no big deal and prevents someone from outside yelling for Alexa to unlock your door. Besides, it's only one extra voice verification to get Alexa to unlock it, worth the extra 10 seconds. At night we simply say; "Alexa, Perform Good Night" and she turns off all the lights, locks the front door and closes the garage door if it was left open.

This is a good looking, zigbee, combination lock. I am dedicated to kwikset as I like to have all the exterior locks keyed the same. My brother and I even our houses keyed the same. It’s awesome. Having a combo lock on my place is handy too.However, I installed two of these and neither of them work with SmartThings. One is relatively close to the hub and the other is close to two Zigbee outlets that act as repeaters and those outlets function flawlessly.The locks are easily added to the SmartThings app. One even showed its battery status initially. But neither has ever operated remotely and both have a permanent “offline” status. I read that they can go into sleep mode and that they can be woken up by using the key, so I gave this a shot. I’ve reinstalled each of them half a dozen times. I’ve tried changing settings in the device manager. None of this has worked and that’s disappointing.I’ve got a Z-wave kwikset lock on my brother’s and father’s house and these work well with SmartThings. Will SmartThings fix the issue? If they don’t, I’d recommend finding a Z-wave lock if you want to control the lock through the SmartThings app or save yourself money by buying a combo lock without connectivity.

After years of a old door and crappy lock.We could not be more excited at the prospect of getting a digital lock with multi codes function for the kids.Pros = Most of all controllable by Z Wave technology !!! Able to allow entry via phone to the UPS guy, Pet sitter, Neighbors wanting to borrow something while away and so on. Install a web cam with a speaker and you can see who just rang your bell and decide to let them in or not. How sweet is that.. !!! No more locked out kids due to loss of keys.. that alone is worth it. Rekey option on this set is easy as well....In our case we combined it with a Kwikset lock lever that matched up very very well. Due to our outside door being brown and interior very light.. we had to buy double of everything. All in all I think it turned out very professional and modern , clean looking.ConsBatteries wear down very quickly if you use the auto lock function. If you use the manual then it is okay.. however to switch from auto to manual requires the removal of the interior top .. a bit of a hassle .. would have been nice to switch from auto in wk to manual on weekends when we are in and out allot.The Venician Bronze finish (exterior in our case) does not hold up well to scratches, from rings keys etc.The Brushed Nickle interior cover is not as show in photos .. it is not all nickle. .the interior top part you pull off to change the batteries is now black. Which I am not so fond of. As you can see with a Natural finish Oak door .. the black really stands out on the interior of the door. So the picture on the ad / site did not match what I received in the mail.. a big no no in my book.I have long been a fan of Kwikset due to the affordability and good quality.Not to mention their customer support is top rate.Amazon had the best price on this item for sure. And you get it fast. Most Box Stores needed 2 wks for a Special order item such as this.I would not recommend this set if harsh exposure to elements either heat or snow.. I do not feel it would hold up well. I have seen then at different houses and the Bronze does not look nice after about 1 yr. We have a large overhang with a canopy of trees for protection.. and out lock never sees snow or rain.Sibl Wisconsin USA

We have a large overhang with a canopy of trees for protection.. and out lock never sees snow or rain.Sibl Wisconsin USA

I bought this a few months ago and its working well for me. A few tips. First the inside portion of the deadbolt is huge. In my case it hit the trim for the knob and I had to snip it a little to get it to fit. You should also take the time to make sure the deadbolt moves smoothly, as it'll eat batteries if there's significant friction. I did a good job on mine and its still showing 100% battery usage 3 months later.I hooked mine up to an old v1 Wink hub. Getting the hub to update to its latest firmware was a chore but once I figured out the trick it happened with few problems. The old Wink is very slow and if you have fast internet and a fast router, I think the update stream is more than it can handle. Even 75' down my driveway on an extension cord it wouldn't work. I finally put it on a hotspot with a weak signal where the total download throughput was around 2-3Mb/s and it updated no problem. $25 used from ebay so no big financial expenditure. With the wink app on a phone you can set all of the options like alarms and autolock with the tap of a finger, and I have it connected to Alexa. Alexa won't unlock the door for security/hacking purposes (like someone yelling "alexa unlock the door" through an open window, but there's another app that will override that if you really need it, a youtube video shows how to do it. However I can lock and check the door lock status with Alexa and the Wink app works on my phone and android smartwatch. I can lock/unlock with either. I haven't done it yet, but I'm pretty sure I can set up a 'robot' that'll lock the door if my phone leaves my local home router's range and unlock it when I come back.Unless you like tech tinkering, I'd buy a newer model smart hub like the wink 2 or smarthings 2. But if you have slow internet or an old wheezy router or a hotspot and extension cord, the old Wink can be made to work and the cheapo $20-something price lets you dip your toes into home automation. If you buy a used wink it may be on the former owners account, but wink will release it if you send them a photo of the mac address sticker and a copy of your proof of purchase.

So far I'm very pleased with the Schlage lock with Z-wave. I bought it to add to my smart home, which I'm controlling with Samsung's SmartThings hub. Note..you can only use the lock with Alexa if you have a smart hub like SmartThings, Wink, etc (to use Alexa with SmartThings add the SmartThings skill in the Alexa app). The instructions to connect with SmartThings is not great, so I'm adding them here to hopefully help someone out. Once you follow the steps below, it should only take a few minutes to set up the lock with SmartThings. If you've already set up the SmartThings skill in the Alexa App, you will still need to add the lock in the Alexa App as well (Alexa Instructions below the SmartThings steps). Additionally, I would recommend a Lithium AA Battery like Energizer Ultimate Lithium Battery. Otherwise the lock will eat through most other batteries pretty quickly.Note: BE SURE TO SET UP THE LOCK WITH SMARTTHINGS BEFORE INSTALLING ON YOUR DOOR.1. Your lock will need to be within 10' of the SmartThings Hub.2. Open the SmartThings App on your phone.3. Select the "My Home" icon on the bottom left side of the app.4. Select "Add a Thing" (Your SmartThing hub should be blinking green to let you know it's in pairing mode).5. Select "Add Device Manually".6. Select "Locks".7. Find the Schlage Deadbolt you have (Camelot, etc).8. Select "Connect Now".9. Touch the "Schlage" Button on the keypad of the lock.10. Type in the 6-digit Programming Code that is on the sticker on the lock (should be in the manual as well).11. Finish by clicking "0" on the keypad.You will here a series of beeps and see the green check mark light up on the keypad. You can then rename the lock in the SmartThings app. Hope it works for you! If you found this helpful, please click the "helpful" button to let others know as well.After you're set up with SmartThings and you have the SmartThings Alexa Skill added, you will still need to add the lock in the Alexa App to control by voice. Steps below are for the Android App; I'm unsure about iOS.1. Select the Hamburger Menu (3 stacked horizontal lines) in Top Left.2. Select "Smart Home"3. Select "Add Device"4. If you have set up everything correctly in SmartThings, Alexa should find the lock.Then, you can say, "Alexa, lock the ____door (whatever you name the lock in SmartThings)." Make sense? Good!

This was a great lock, and easy to self install (excellent instructions). However I wanted a lock that worked with my iPhone. This one did not, only works with security systems. As far as Amazon, the experience was great, including the return. However the vendor charged me a restocking fee and for shipping for return. That was NOT clear on the Amazon site. And....the explanations on what conductibility the lock works with is not clear on Amazon, nor on the Schlage site. I had to call Schlage customer service to find out I needed a different lock. They were able to tell me exactly which lock I needed based on what my exceptions were. Overall the lock was great (I actually installed it before realizing it was not what I wanted), and my experience with Amazon and Schlage was great. I would not order from the actual vendor again, though.

I bought this because it was the best looking WiFi combination door lock I could find.WiFi is invaluable when you have kids who don't always lock the door.Combination lock is MUCH more secure and convenient than leaving keys under the mat.I love this lock ever time I come home and don't need to reach for keys.I love that my kids are NEVER locked out!The first lock I was sent had a software glitch that prevented WiFi connection and was hard to diagnose.If you have problems setting up your lock just return it for a new one.

With the purchase of a new front entry door came the need for a new lock set. I definitely decided on the Schlage Century line based on the design and how well it look in contrast to my craftsman door design. I weighed the decision to go with the electronic deadbolt which increased the price by $100.In the end I pulled the trigger on the touchscreen version and couldn't be happier. No more house keys in my pocket. I was concerned the touchscreen would be finicky, and maybe having to press just right or too hard to key the numbers. However once installed I was very surprised the touchscreen is very sensitive, and it only takes a slight touch to press the number. The key pad lights up when you press the Schlage logo and then slowly dims out when finished. Best yet, the screen finish resists fingerprints and so far works awesome.My only complaint I could muster up is the electronic deadbolt is loud. If the deadbolt motor was quieter this would be a five star all day long.

It does pair with SmartThings. Got a new hub and had to first run the Zwave exclude utility, then put Schlage lock in pairing mode to remove it. Then begin pair process with SmartThings app and repeat the Schlage pairing process. Worked on first try... just needed proper sequence.

Easy to install. Original batteries have lasted 8 months and we use the lock at least four times daily. Haven’t connected it to Alexa and probably won’t. Integrates perfectly with Ring.

I have 1 dead bolt that was a bit picky with alignment. I have Yale smart locks on other doors that work great, but the picky dead bolt with a Yale smart lock no go! Mind you the Yale was a complete replace including outside keypad/keylock.So, I decided to try this lock since the current deadbolt was fine with the picky alignment and voila, the picky deadbolt alignment works great. Lock was very easy to install and works perfect with my Wink Hub2! I saw another reviewer mention that it doesn't report lock status correctly with his/her Wink Hub, I don't find that issue whatsoever...status has been flawless.Took me 30 minutes of taking my time to put on and them programming it to my Wink Hub2.So why not 5 stars...mostly because of how you change the batteries. You have to remove 3 screws on the cover to get to the battery pack and since my lock is close to my doors window molding it's a bit of PITA to get 1 of the screws off as it’s partially hidden by the doors window molding...my Yale's is 1 screw on the front of the lock and cover slides off for easy battery replacement. If Kwikset made accessing the batteries a bit easier it would have been a 5-star review!But regarding the latter, hopefully I won't need to replace batteries often as I generally use a key on the Kwikset lock to open/close which should save battery life. I know with my Yale's, the one lock I don't use often requires the batteries to be replaced every 12-18 months, while another Yale lock I use quite a bit via the keypad and geofencing (which engages the motor every time) requires the batteries to be replaced about every 6 months.I've only had this lock for about 30 days, so I can't yet comment on the battery life although within that time lost about 10% of battery life, so I’m guess maybe every 8-12 months I’ll need to put knew batteries in.I have in the past rushed out of my house forgetting to lock my deadbolt...but it is such a piece of mind to be able to check anywhere in the world to ensure all my locks are locked! And using geofencing with my Wink app, it will automatically lock all my doors if all family members have left and a door wasn’t locked.

We purchased this for my 88 yr old mother's home. She currently has home aides in 2 12 hr shifts. The aides are not allowed keys but with round the clock care they can let each other in. We plan to discontinue the 24/7 care and need a method for allowing the aides to enter when no one else is there. Mom has dementia and we don't want her judging who to let in. My brother suggested this product on the basis that his key is a Kwikset key. The lock, however was NOT a Kwikset. My son had to go purchase the appropriate lock, have it re-keyed to the existing keys and proceed with the installation. SO: CAUTION # 1, check the actual lock, don't assume the name on the key verifies the lock brand. Next issue is Not our error. The lock mechanism was defective. A call to the Kwikset helpline determined that the motor was defective so I can't really review the lock's functionality. The CAUTION #2, is the 'Z-hub.' Both my brother & son are electronically savvy. I am not. I searched for Z hub & found that Alexa devices serve as a Z-hub. So, I thought we were set, as Mom has an Echo Dot. Not SO, only the newer Plus devices will serve as a Z hub with this product. so do your homework. Hopefully our experience will help someone else, always assuming the faulty motor is an aberration and not a routine quality control issue.

I'm writing this review to help people with the installation. First, deadbolt must move in and out with ease. If it doesn't then you will not be able to use the lock and unlock remotely, the motor to turn the lock is not very powerful. Second, check the batteries provided are in good condition, mine were dead and I didn't realize it till later. Third, if you have a smart home, you must delete the lock from your smart home hub first then add it. Directions say 12" from Hub so keep it close to hub then install. Fourth, if your lock is not in the right position do not adjust your dead bolt. You can adjust the kwikset lock by functioning the locking mechanism till it is in the correct position. To function the lock, remove batteries and press on center programming button. Hold center button, then place batteries in unit, then release after 3 seconds (you should get a loud beep). Once you get the beep press the button again and it will turn 90 degrees or so. Once you get the kwikset lock in the right position place on dead bolt and then function the lock again so it knows the lock and unlock position. Programming to hub you simply insert batter pack and push the top left button or A button (once for zwave, 4 for zigbee). Hope this helps and eases your frustration!
