Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Laura Excited For Keyless Lock!!
After months of bugging my husband about Kevo our deadbolt mysteriously stopped working making us get a new lock for the house. I was worried about install after seeing wires coming out of everywhere but took my husband about 40mins to install the lock. Creating the account on the app and syncing the ekeys and fob was really easy too! My only disappointment was that it only came with 2 ekeys - one for me and one for my husband. I liked the idea of sending someone an ekey if they were visiting. Otherwise it may be to early to tell but we have had no problems.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Masonrite Very Slow to Lock and Unlock your door.
This lock is a complete waste of money.
The main reason I went with a keyless lock(Kevo Plus with iPhone 6s) was to speed up the time it takes to find my keys, open the door and get in or out of my house as quickly as possible.
It's nice that I no longer need a key, but it takes at least twice as much time for me to lock and unlock the door than when I just use an old-fashion key! Which IMO defeats the purpose of going key-less.
If you're looking into this feature to make your life easier and speed things up, stick with a traditional key or use another company that does not run on the Kevo app.
Pros: Not having to have your key on you, Remote access.
Cons: VERY slow on both Bluetooth access and App access.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BirdMan Easy to Install. Great lock!
The lock was very easy to install in replacing my existing lock. I was able to quickly install the lock using the easy to follow instructions. It works great. No more fumbling for keys when your arms are full. The best home improvement I have done in recent years.

Great idea, it works great- when it works. But there are several very important constraints Kwikset doesn't mention on its box. Shameful.
1) the phone feature ONLY works if you stop to open your phone AND open the Kēvo app. Are you kidding me Kwikset? Why wouldn't I just use a key. They tell you this only after you buy it, open and install it- then blame Apple and IOS 10, blah blah blah.
2) they only allow two phones to have access to a lock. Again, they don't tell you this until you've committed.
3) bought a new one just last week. They didn't mention that they're still busy disposing of Generation 1 Kevos. But there is already a Gen 2. They'd better hope that its better.
4) sometimes when you touch it, even with the app open, it takes a very long time to open or lock.
5) the "key" fob is a bulky hunk of plastic that you'd never want to add to your key ring.
Advice- shop Schlage, or wait for the next generation and read the reviews before you give away $200 and an hour or two of your time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fd3585 Awesome.
I bought this very same look 2 years ago and no issues with it. Love the security and the simplicity of installing it. In different occasion I had to open the door for my daughter while I was away from the home. Now I bought a second lock for a second door located on the rear of my home. Defiantly recommend the product.

Just bought this, got the dead bolt in, but im trying to calabrate the fob, i go out side touch it, it either stays blue, or i tried again, got it green twice, then the third time it went red. customer service already is closed. im so dissapointed right now. second question, i also bought 2 extra key fobs, not realizing i dont need the extra fobs since we all have smart phones that we need to program. also, the guy at the store told me for a door knob, since we dont need to use a entry door knob to get a closet door knob, my husband had me go back to exchange the knob for a entry door knob. hopefully tomorrow i'll have better luck when i call customer service for help on calabrating the fob.

It is frustrating that it doesn't work with more Android phones. Example it works with my Samsung Note 4 but not my wifes Android Note 5. It may become useless for us if they don't update the system as we would not be able to update the phones.

I have been fighting with this lock system for over six months. Kevo replaced the lock three times and the kevo plus once. The idea is great. The execution is terrible. At times the lock works great other times you sit there like an idiottapping your look over and over again hoping the lock will open. We had the Kevo Plus as well. It worked less than half the times I tried to use it. I had to leave work to let someone in because the Kevo Plus failed to work. Kevo has not added any new phones to the compatibility list in almost a year. Not compatable with s7 phones. Kevo bought back the whole system without argument, which makes me think they know the lock has problems.
