How many times have I panicked when I found out that I locked myself out of the house because I locked the door the night before and forgot to unlock it before I left, hence locking myself out.
I like this idea and will now purchase the item because of this fact. I am going to get this to accompany the Schlage Camelot Keypad deadbolt BE 365, Cam 619.

Bought this for our front door.
Found that every time we turn the door knob it unlocks. Thought I installed it incorrectly so I called Schlage.
Turns out it was designed that way to prevent people from locking themselves out of the house.
I asked if there was a way t override this but they said there wan't.
I find this annoying as every time I leave the house I will have to manually lock the door.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sbains Schlage Bright Brass Lever Deadbolt G2 Security
This provides G2 level security with G1 being the best. Installation was a snap on a prehing door. Put in deadbolt secure with two Phillips screws. Then attach lock side handle, then inside handle and tighten two rounded bolts. That's it, then install final plate. Nice smoth action. Inside handle will always open the door without turning thumb knob, you will need to lock once you come in. Best to always install a second thumb knob deadbolt G1 lock, two locks are better than one.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dan1dad great locks for the price, had 2 for over 4 years now
I have 2 of these. 1 on front, 1 on back. The one on the back was sticky as the other review on here suggest, but its nothing but metal burs from machining the locks. a little wd40 and a minute or 2 of working the lock vigorously usually cures this. The sticky lock has been om my back door for over 4 years now, and with kids, dogs, the garage out back its gets 80% of the traffic. The first day it was sticky & after wd40 and working its worked fault free since. Front door has never had a problem. Easy to install and the only maintenance required is to retighten the trim screws and a squirt of lube every year or so.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by George530 Left wide open
This makes the second lockset that has failed to work for very long. I went to leave one day and closed the door but the door would not close because the plunger would not retract, so the door popped back open. The only way I could close my door was to turn the handle to get the plunger to retract and close. So I will be taking this lockset plus the one on my front door back to Home Depot and getting another lockset and not a Schlage.
Buyer be ware, don't think that when you close your door that it will always work because one day when you think your lockset is never going to fail it will. You'll come back home and think someone broke into your home because your door will be standing wide open.
