Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by djyintl Almost Perfect
Super easy to install, if your door already had similar setup (regular locks, door knob and etc.). It took me about 4 minutes without using of power tool.
One very big flaw: if the handle on the inside got stuck (if the jam is not perfectly aligned with the door), you will never be able to open the lock, with emergency key or not. So make sure the lock is moving smoothly and handle is not stuck on the inside.
Wish the card can be detected a little further away so I can leave it inside my wallet instead of taking it out every time.
Bought a few so now I can open my house, office and other places with the same card.

I bought this door lock with high hopes. It was easy to install and easy to program. I think I spent about 30-45 minutes installing it as I had to chisel out a space for the strike plate as it was a little bit different. Also, i have only installed one other door lock.
I purchased the key fobs so my wife and I could just hold our keys up to the sensor. My only disappointment is that the I have to put the fob right on the sensor. I was hoping the door would just unlock when I got a couple feet from it. Still love it though.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sardaukar Easy to use and effective
Installation took about 10 minutes. The instructions are very straight-forward and the product worked exactly as advertised. Would recommend this product for people looking for electronic access control but can't afford electromagnetic doors.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by James The best keyless door lock.
It has all the features you need for office security. It's so easy to install and operate, yet the price is so affordable. I bought lots of the keypad locks before, but this lock beats them all.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TheLandlord Clever, easy & a great access control alternative!
I'm a landlord of a small building and needed to have control over 4 doors. I priced out a wired access control system and almost fainted when I saw the cost. I found these locks and they've been a great affordable alternative. I've supported locksmiths for a long time, but in this economy I was looking for a way to do it myself and cut out another bill. This lock was the answer.
I control who has access to which office doors by programming badges on each lock and giving the badges to my tenants. The badges are also how you "program" the locks. I have a "master badge" and the tenants get "user badges". My master badge can change who has access, delete a user from a lock or program a badge to another lock. No computer involved, they use batteries and it took me 10 minutes to install one. The only downside is that I can't see a log of who's used the locks, but again I could have spent thousands to have that option.
My tenants feel safer and love not having another key. I love having the control over the locks and not paying a locksmith bill even though I still use them for my exterior doors. Overall, I would recommend this lock to people with small scale security needs (1 - 5 INTERIOR doors) because it's very manageable and affordable.
Another note: each lock comes with unique "back up" keys in case you miss the low battery indicator and wait too long to change the batteries. You need to store them in a remote, central location and label them "Dave's office", etc.
Good product and a clever solution for small business people like me.
