Rated 5 out of 5Â by Aayan Peace of mind with added security
This deadbolt certainly provides peace of mind with added security. Installation is very easy and takes less than half hour if you are replacing an existing deadbolt. Installation Guide contains step-by-step clear instructions/limitations with illustrations.
Its Auto-Lock feature can automatically lock the door after 30 seconds; itâs a great feature with a BUT. If a 3 â 4 year old child sneaks out the door and the door gets locked in 30 seconds, the child might not know how to get back in. I am leaving this option disabled in my house.
Lock & Leave feature allows you to lock the door by simply pressing Schlage button from the outside keypad. Itâs very handy when your hands are full. You have the flexibility to use one of the three alarm modes to fit your needs. For each mode, you can also control the sensitivity level. Vacation mode totally restricts unlocking the door through code and you must unlock using the provided single key until vacation mode is disabled. The lock can store up to 30 user codes. Keypadâs surface is not like cell phone touch screen, keys are raised and you have to apply a bit pressure to press a number. Backlight conveniently helps you read the digits in the dark. You also have an option to enable/disable key-press beep. Wireless lock/unlock capability comes with some additional cost. You have to buy Nexia Home Bridge to utilize wireless feature.
It would be great to allow the consumer to pick separate colors for the indoor alarm assembly and the outdoor keypad. I have Aged Bronze Color Scheme on the exterior hardware and Brushed Nickel Color Scheme on the interior. I ended up matching the lock with my exterior hardware color scheme, so now I have an Aged Bronze alarm assembly with my Brushed Nickel interior. It took some time to get used to 8â high alarm assembly since it replaced a deadbolt that was only 3â in diameter and matched my interior color scheme. Lock is powered by 4 AA Alkaline batteries (not included). It gives you yellow light indicator if batteries are low.
Given the capabilities of this lock, I am a very happy consumer.

Bought this item for our front door. It fit properly, and it was simple to install. To program it was also very simple. We are enjoying it with the kids as well - not having to pull out our keys each time. I also love the auto lock feature which I programmed, so the door automatically locks itself when we close it to leave the house! About as good as it could get!

Rated 4 out of 5Â by ValleyForgelady Great concept but installation was tricky
We really like the concept and the design of this door system. But we installed this on a metal door that had a brass Baldwin assembly. One new hole had to be drilled. The old hole was caulked.
The deadbolt required an opening that was a bit larger. My fiance used a lot ingenuity to jury rig this into the opening. There were times when he thought this would not work.but using a file to bend the existing opening....it works.
It is liberating to have no keys! Making spares to keep in the car. Plan to change the batteries every 6 moths just to be safe. The bronze color is great. Brass is old school and stainless is just not right for the setting.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Brian cool idea...good enough for my garage.
Well, install is a little involved compared to a normal deadbolt but not too bad. I decided to install it on my detatched garage to test run it before I trust it on my home. So far it's cool to be able to enter without a key but I'm not used to not locking the knob when I exit...LOL! I would recommend it so far for a detached garage but it will take a while to trust it on my home. The internals are very much made of plastic on the interior side of the lock so time will tell of its durability. Furthermore, the keypad reminds me of the old school keypads that eventually dry rot and crack due to prolonged ultraviolet exposure...but again, time will tell. I'd give it a try if you can trust it first and foremost.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by HubersPC It is a great addition to my front door.
It works really well and was easy to install. The alarm feature is great if someone tries to guess you code.
