Easy to install and hook up. Just pay attention to instructions. I love that it connects to and can be controlled by Alexa. If in doubt, just ask her if it is unlocked. If outside can be controlled by phone over internet or bluetooth. Rekeying the keyed lock was a breeze and a big plus to reduce the number of keys required for emergency back up. The app even gives an indication of battery level. Do wish there was Windows app. I installed this on the back door of the attached garage which is at the far end of the house but the common entrance for family and friends. Makes it much easier to make sure it is locked at night without actually walking way back there and checking.
Easy installation. App worked well. Wifi works well. Lock works without a problem. Just make sure you do the measurements before you buy. Only iss was the app wasn't available in the Google play store for the country I'm currently in. Had to get the app from a third party website after a Google search. There was a moment of suspense when the app was trying to upgrade the firmware on the lock and then froze, prompting my Android phone to ask if I wanted to kill the app. Fortunately I clicked wait (happened twice) and the firmware upgrade finished successfully. Also note that the lock uses bluetooth to pair with your phone as well as connecting to wifi.Will update if anything changes but this is a good lock that works as advertised.
Before purchased this lock, I kind of hesitate because of many reviews report jam issue. I saw 1 review talking about how to config the lock for left or right side door and hope that is it. My main reason to go with Kwikset is due to its smartkey ability and its good price. So I decided to give it a try. Installation is straight forward. But then I hit the jam issue. I tried to reset the lock, try to config left/right door. Nothing helps.Looking closer at the problem, the lock works fine when the door is open; But got jammed when the door is closed. When the door is open, I realize the latch extends quite a bit long. The hole in the door frame is definitely not that deep. So, I drill the hole deeper and deeper. Finally, I have the hole deep enough for the lock latch to stretch out. After the fix, my lock is now working flawlessly. I have another Kwikset lock before and I did not see the latch extended this long.In case you are far away from where the lock is, be aware that controlling the lock can be done via wifi (long distance); But some lock settings like auto lock, etc have to be done locally via bluetooth.
I looked at many different smart locks and think this is one of the best! You can use a key, a code, a smart phone, or Alexa to open and close the lock. I also appreciate that there is a light that slowly blinks either red or green to let you know at a glance if the lock is open or closed when inside the house. Also can set up different codes for different people to access the lock. This is a great product that connected directly to my wi-fi network so I did not have to buy any other network products. Pretty easy to install and it looks great! Vey happy with purchase!
Not only can you unlock your door from your car before you load up on groceries, you can verify that the door is unlocked via the Kwikset App. There is a History which tells what method was used and if it was locked or unlocked. The current condition of the lock is given. You could unlock the door from miles away, if a family member is locked out. I have only had this for a couple of month's but for now, I highly recommend it. This would have been handy when we forgot to take our keys and couldn't get back into our Condo. The lock installs easily through the current Deadbolt hole.
