Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NewHome29483 Pretty faulty - but great customer service (so far)
The idea of a keyless entry is great, but the touchpad system has it's bugs. We needed just a deadbolt as it was intended for a door with a deadbolt and separate handle and the push-key versions did not have the right dimensions. We ordered 2 and within the first month the first lock had to be manually reset (which wasn't a huge deal, just called the customer service line and they walked us through it). After 3 months the 2nd lock's keypad failed. The lock itself still worked (as it was still auto-locking), but the keypad no longer worked. I called Schlage customer service and under the 1 year warranty they replaced it no questions asked. My only concern is what happens next year if it fails. That's a lot of money spent if it fails after a year. I have not tested it's smartphone functions so that was not taken into account.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by apeski SchlageCentury Satin Chrome Touchscreen Deadbolt with Alarm
The only reason we replaced the old Schlage keyless entry lock with this new one was because the numbers had faded off, so we purchased this new touchscreen deadbolt. I do love this product, however, in the cold winter months you have to take off your gloves to press the numbers and sometimes it has been hard to see the numbers at night. And one day my son couldn't get in from school because it (the lock) locked him out, and he wasn't comfortable trying to open it again (it had just been installed).

Very straight forward installation, if you are replacing a newer style lock with the same diameter lock and deadbolt, I had to redrill my door, but the rest was very easy. I love not having to carry my key. I have nt connected my lock to the interenet yet. It has worked well for giving contractors their own code that I can erase after they finish their work.

This was easy to install and program. Love the idea of locking/unlocking from my iPhone & iPad. The alarm give me a comfort level knowing when someone is at the door.

But everything else was. (It takes 4 AA batteries - not a big deal!)
I got this for my basement door so my wife could get to her garden tools from the yard when she doesn't have her keys.
This would have been a straight-forward installation except I was trying to save time by reusing my old deadbolt strike. After messing with it for an hour I removed it and installed the reinforcement and strike plates provided with this lock in about 10 minutes.
The instructions say that it's critical that the bolt move into locked position without any resistance. I managed this since the opening in the new strike plate was larger than the old one. To allow for potential misalignments due to age or weather the deadbolt is tapered to allow it to work with imperfectly aligned strike plates. It also has two locking forces and automatically selects which one to use.
The remainder of the installation and programming took about 20 minutes. It worked perfectly after installation. I installed it on a south-facing basement door and found that the numbers on the keypad, while illuminated, were hard to see in full sun.
Programming was straightforward and well explained in the User's Guide. One nice feature is that once you enter the 6-digit programming code you can program multiple functions in one programming session - just enter the function number (0-9) and possibly a user code, depending on the function. I don't have Nexia so didn't test that feature.
Operation is simple. To lock or unlock from inside you use the knob, just like any other deadbolt. From outside, to unlock, touch the "Schlage" logo to wake up the keypad and enter your user code. When leaving, I have it set to lock when the Schlage logo is touched, although there are other options, including an automatic relock after 30-seconds. It's pretty easy to add a delete user code in case you want to allow others temporary access. You can have up to 30 different user codes. The code length can be set to 4-8 digits, but all user codes must be the same length.
The built-in alarm has 3 operation modes. The default is "forced entry", which detects excessive force against the deadbolt while locked, and results in a 3-minute alarm. "Tamper" detects things like someone trying to pick the lock or jiggle the door to see if its locked and sounds a 15-second alarm. "Activity" sounds two beeps whenever the door is opened or closed - good for keeping track of children. There are 3 sensitivity settings for each mode.
A door-edge sticker was included that has simple programming instructions for adding or deleting user code, but it's only useful if you remember the 6-digit programming code. I was tempted to write it on the door edge and may yet do so.

This Schlage lock touchscreen lock is a really nice convenience. Replaces your current deadbolt in just a few minutes. You do not need to make any more holes in your door or anything. The install takes about 5-10 minutes. It already has 2 pre-programmed user codes in it. Programming more custom codes is not difficult to do as long as you follow the directions. (You can also still use a regular key if you like) It does require 4AA batteries which are NOT included. The built in alarm feature is very nice to give you a little piece of mine. This can also use with the Nexia Home Intelligence system. If you want the ability to remotely lock and unlock the door.
