Questions & Answers


how do you lock it from the outside? i don't see any lock button on the pad

Asked by cb July 8, 2021

To ensure the lever is locked upon leaving, rotate the interior turn-piece to the vertical (locked) position and close the door.

Can this be used as a deadbolt? Product description starts: "The SmartCode 955 Commercial Grade t...

Asked by wondering June 14, 2021

The deadbolt is a separate mechanism, but it can be keyed to match by the homeowner.

I asked the question about purchasing multiple Kwikswet 955 Pembroke units and have them keyed al...

Asked by bert March 11, 2021

The SmartCode 955 cannot be ordered with the same key to match other locks. However, you can take one key from one lock and re-key the other locks to that same key. Then you can make additional copies of the key.

Do you need a smartphone to make this work?

Asked by bert March 8, 2021


Can more than one unit be purchased and keyed alike?

Asked by bert March 8, 2021

Yes, the SmartCode 955 features SmartKey Security which protects against advanced break-in techniques and allows you to re-key your lock yourself in seconds by using the SmartKey Learn Tool included in the box.

I don't see anything about the encryption or how long the codes can be. Can someone answer those?

Asked by barry December 29, 2020

For added security on the SmartCode 955, you can add a Programming Code to the lock. The Programming Code enables you to make changes without needing to access the Program button on the interior of the lock. The Programming Code, as well as the User Code, can be between 4 to 8 digits long, however, the PC and the UC cannot be the same numbers.

does this work when it gets cold?

Asked by frustratedwife November 21, 2020

I have t experienced any cold weather yet, but I don’t expect any issues. My other older Kwikset smart lock on the front door has had no issues over the last several years. I am in the south where winters are not as severe as other parts of the country. We rarely get below freezing and then usually only for a couple of days at a time.

How do I know when is Right or Left?

Asked by Tony1949 November 12, 2020

You don’t need to know right or left because it’s reversible. For future reference...stand facing the door on the side that it swings, grab the hinge pin (butt) with the hand closest to it, and grab the handle with the other hand. If your left hand is on the handle it’s a left hand door and vice versa.

Is this a deadbolt or is a separate deadbolt required? If installing on a two-bore door (2 holes ...

Asked by Lilyzpad October 28, 2020

The SmartCode 955 is not a deadbolt, it’s an electronic lever lock with a deadlatch. For your set up, we recommend installing an electronic deadbolt with a handle below it. Please click on the following link for these options. https://www.homedepot.com/s/kwikset%2520electronic%2520deadbolt%2520lever?NCNI-5

If you enter your user code incorrectly 3 times, is there a lockout period? If so - how long is the lockout period?

Asked by Puzzled October 26, 2019

Most of these locks have a 15-30 second period where the keypad won't work after too many incorrect codes. Shouldn't be too much longer than that, but patience is a virtue :-)

Beautiful Door Knob
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a Beautiful Smartcode Door Knob! It is Very Stylish .looks Great On My Door! The Install was Super Easy . Setting up the Pin took Me a Few Times Probably User Error but We Finally Got it! We chose to Rekey it to Match Our Other Locks and that Process was very Easy! I Love the Idea of just punching in a Number to be able to Open the Door instead of Looking for Keys when your Hands are Full. Great Product!

Works well
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We have this brand lock on our front door, but have around 5 doors that need locks on our home and external garage. This one we received to review went on our external garage. The smart app is easy to operate. We've had our garage broken into once, so we are really happy with this product. It actually comes with the battery and easy to follow instructions. There are always adjustments to be made when adding a new lock, but my husband is a master electrician and carpenter. We like the ability to add codes and users to our lock. We like how reliable the app has been for us. Overall, it's a brand we can rely on. We have no complaints.

Smart Security
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Kwikset is an brand that I have trusted for a long time for door knobs and locks. My parents had bought and kwikset smartlock door handle and we loved the convenience of it! The set is easy to install and setup! With us recently building our new home this electronic handle is a great addition!

Love everything about it!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] 955 SmartCode™ Electronic Pembroke Lever featuring SmartKey Security™ took 45 minutes to in stall with help from my husband. It could have been install by one person but two makes it much easier. We had to remove the old door lock that we were changing. The directions that came in the box were a little unclear. We had to get a different size Allen key because they were two different size screws. Only one Allen key fitted . The code was easy to put in with two people. I was happy with the 955 SmartCode™ Electronic Pembroke Lever when we got it finished. The up date Satin Chrome finish gives my door a modern look. The gold set I had was out dated. For doors that needs the dead bolt they need to be purchased extra.
by Sissy321
Beautiful lock.
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love the look of this lock. The instructions were very easy to follow, from installation to setting up code. I love that you can use a code or a key to open the door. We used this on bedroom door, so kids can not get in and get into anything dangerous. This lock works great on doors with predrilled hole already or you can make your own. I like the size of the handle and the shape of it. You can use this on a exterior or interior door. Very heavy duty lock. We love it so much we plan on upgrading other locks in the house and garage.

Secure system
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is a great system. It is very easy to install the directions are very clear. it is very easy to program, you can program up to 30 codes. It fit the door perfectly one hole door.We have had 5- 10 degree weather the last week and I have had no problems with the unit freezing. It is visually appealing very nice finish. The keypad lights up when using so easy to use in the dark. The smart-key technology is bump proof, pick resistant and drill resistant, so very secure.It has a very sturdy commercial grade lever. This is an excellent door system, I like that even when the door is locked you can open the door on the inside, without unlocking the door, this auto lock feature is great. I highly recommend this product.
Great door handle!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This door handle looks really nice, and it was easy to install. I've never messed with door knobs before and I was able to install it in just a few minutes by myself. The instructions are very clear on how to install and how to set and delete codes. It holds up to 30 different codes, so you will have plenty for everyone in your house and any others you may want to have access. It opens and shuts super smooth, and having the backlight at night is great. I absolutely love not having to worry about keys when I want to get in, especially when my hands are full, or when the kids just need to run in and grab something. Zero worries about getting locked out for any reason! I love it.

Super easy and quick to install!
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] We got this set to replace another electric doorlocking set (non-kwikset brand). First thing if you have not used a electronic lock set yet get on the bandwagon.   These are a welcome addition to my home.  When we go away we program a code for users to check on the house.  When we return we change the code again.  You really have to try to lock yourself out of the house.  My significant other is the Michael Jordan of locking themselves out of EVERYTHING!  This helps alleviate a lot of these issues.  This set is much higher quality than the previous one.  The previous set ate battery's and I was a touch concerned about being locked out due to this.  This set says 3 years for the battery. We will see its on the front door and will see moderate usage. The actuator struggles less than the old set to lock and unlock the mechanisms.  Kwikset is known for easy installation and quality control.  Both of these are evident in the weight of the handles and mechanisms.  The previous set took me over a half hour to install.  I installed the kwikset in less than 20 minutes.  Infact it was so simple I read the instructions twice looking for the quirks.  This set installs like a traditional set with the addition of plugging in a 9volt battery and plugging in a 4 wire connector. Thank you for a quality product kwikset I will purchase again.

Adds The Security You Want To Any Area
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I love the Kwikset 955 Commercial Grade Electronic Lever in Satin Nickel finish for many reasons. First and most importantly, I LOVE the security that it provides! I put it on auto lock so that it stays locked after EVERY entry and exit and requires a code to get in each time. It does have passage mode to where you can leave it unlocked if you don't want it locked and requiring a code all the time. Disable passage mode requires the key or code every time. I love how easy it is to install. All you need is a screwdriver! You can program up to 30 different codes. It is really easy to program and reprogram codes. This would be a great for any office building, so everyone can have their own code to enter. The keypad stays lit for 5 seconds, so that comes in handy in dark spaces. You can enter the code with one finger in the event that your hands are full. I love that it runs on a 9 volt battery that too. It does come with two keys in the event that you need them. The lever is very durable and it fits right or left handed doors. I highly suggest the Kwikset 955 Commercial Grade Electronic Lever for any door that needs extra security. You can use it on any door. The garage, office, shed, storage room, front door just to name a few places it would work GREAT on. The decision is yours where you decide to put it. You will NOT be disappointed! I give it a 5/5 stars!

I now feel more secure, knowing that I have the 955 SMARTCODE SATIN NICKEL ELECTRONIC PEMBROKE DOOR LEVER FEATURING SMARTKEY SECURITY BY KWIKSET. This commercial grade lock is extremely well made with your protection in mind! It is fairly easy to install, as well as program. I had a problem with a missing screw, but that was quickly resolved, and the installation completed! I would definitely recommend this lock if you're looking for peace of mind in your home or business!
