Very Easy to Install and Works Great
The InstaLOCK Remote Controlled Deadbolt Conversion Kit is an ingenious invention to convert a simple keyed deadbolt lock, with inside turn knob, into a smart lock. It simply fits right over an existing turn knob and uses magnets to hold the device securely to a metal door. Adhesive tape and a metal plate are also included for non-metal doors. The antique bronze finish is very pleasant and it also includes a turn knob for manual use inside. It comes with two preprogrammed remotes, and can be paired with up to eight remote controls. I was surprised at how easy this is to install, with no tools required. The only negative is that the remote control is much bulkier than just carrying a key. The remote control would be advantageous at night to avoid trying to find the right key in the dark. Overall, I am pleased with the performance of the Remote Controlled Deadbolt Conversion.

Next best thing to smart locks
I thought about getting a smart lock for my door but didn't want to spend the money and change my keys so I found the instalock remote deadbolt conversion kit and really like the convenience of being able to place on any exterior deadbolt door at the house for my teenage kids after school or visiting family members. The keyless lock doesnt require hardware, it comes with 2 sets of adhesive strips and a metal plate incase you want to place on a non magnetic door or simple remove the metal plate and use the Magnetic backing on metal doors. It also works best on flush door sets and It operates on 4 AA batteries. I really like the keyless remotes it comes with, they are a good size to place on a key ring. It is very simple to operate, the top button is unlock and the bottom button is to lock. The unlocking mechanism can rotate either direction depending on which position the switch is in. This is really a quick fix for the poor man's smart lock and i really like the portability.

Nice idea, well built
instaLOCK Remote Controlled Deadbolt Conversion Kit is a nice innovative idea to turn your usual deadbolt to a remote controlled one and avoid entering the key physically to turn it on/off. I have tested the remotes and they work from about 30 feet very well. Did not try to use it from any farther distance. I would defeinitely recommend this to anyone

Im really liking this remote controlled door lock that requires no tools for installation. It comes with the 4AA batteries installed and 2 remote controls so its all ready to go. My door is metal so all i needed to do was to remove the magnetized back plate, pull out the tab from the batteries and place the lock over my turn knob on the inside of the door. This is really great! If you have a wood door you`d have to use the sticky strips that are included. This door lock is so convenient for people who for instance have their hands full and cant get up close to the door to use their keys. I can see someone whose driving a mobility scooter benefitting from using a remote to unlock their front door. The only drawback is that it keeps "shifting" (video) when i use it so i need to attach some strips to stop this. The 2 remotes are easy to operate and has a blue light, can be attached to a keyring. This lock does not affect the outside look of your door and you can still use your key when the batteries die so your not locked out.

Turn your dumb lock into an almost smart lock!
I picked up this InstaLOCK remote controlled (not app controlled) Deadbolt kit for my back door on the house. My kids use the back door more than any other door, but my wife and I rarely use it. We don't live in a high-crime area, but I like the comfort of knowing my home is as secure as I can make it. I'm also a little lazy. This kit allows me to use the remote to lock or unlock the deadbolt from another room or outside the house. I can also give a remote to my kids to unlock or lock the door as they come and go from the house. It is important that your deadbolt turns easily on its own and you do not need to pull or push on the door to engage the lock. It basically will not work if it does not turn freely. The kit comes with everything you need to install, including magnets for metal doors or a metal plate and adhesive strips for non-metal doors. The remotes are pretty small so be sure to put the on a key chain or use the small adhesive tabs to put the up somewhere. The remotes are also pre-programmed so it works out of the box. The kit has a great finish and is nicely made. My only concern is that the mechanism that actually turns the deadbolt is made from plastic. The kit will try to turn 360⁰, but my deadbolts only turn about 90⁰ to engage the lock. The kit does not snap, click, or try to overpower the lock, but I'm concerned that the plastic may not hold up with time. We shall see.

Insta Lock is easy to install and works well
This was a really unique and easy to install solution to automating a deadbolt. Let me start by saying the kit comes complete, including batteries for the unit and the remote, you can hit the ground running right away. I installed this on a metal door, which means no drilling, no double sided tape, it has 6 strong magnets to secure it. If you are installing it on a wooden or fiberglass door, it comes with command hook tape ready to install. First thing, you need to slide the metal plate out of the woy, you do that by sliding it to the side, don’t try just pulling it off, the magnets are too strong. You than remove the battery strip to allow contact with the unit. I checked my batteries before installing as they had moved during shipping, it takes 4 AA batteries. I would suggest synching the remotes ot the unit before installing, it is very easy, you press the synch button on the unit and the remote button, synch them both together so that both are hooked up correctly. You set the deadbolt handle to open, install the unit over the deadbolt handle and the magnets hold it in place. You are done. I tested the remotes and had no issue opening the lock. Just be aware these remotes have a range of about 80 feet, I was able to unlock the door from anywhere on the first floor of my house. These will not unlock your door from a far distant like a wifi set up. I gave one to a family member so they could check on my dogs and not worry about them losing my key. This would be a good solution if you need to let a contractor into your house while you are not home and don’t want them to have a key. The ease of the install, ability to remove it and the coast make this a great solution for allowing someone into your house temporarily. You can even hide a remote in your shed in case you get locked out.

Great Idea !
I was pretty intrigued when I saw this InstaLOCK and had to try it. #1 it really is as easy to install (10 minues or less) and even a novice should be able to complete the task. This is of a good quality and attractive as well. I love that the idea that this InstaLOCK attachs to my wood door with command hooks. It is easy to install and to remove. I am delighted with this lock and would recommend it for anyone!

It was ok but not great
The instaLOCK Remote Controlled Deadbolt Conversion Kit seems to be made a little cheaply and didn't have a lot of features. I thought it was like a smart lock but it's really just a remote like opening a garage door. The look of the silver on the lock doesn't quite match the stainless look of the door knob. It's basically a lock that goes over your lock. I don't think I would recommend this product.
Coolest thing ever!
This deadbolt conversion kit is incredible! It's easy to set up as the mechanism fits directly over our deadbolt. It sticks magnetically to our front door, and they have an adhesive kit included for those who do not have a metal door. It took less than a minute to set up. If adhering to a metal door, you have to remove the metal plate on the back first, and that takes a bit of oomph to do as the magnets are very strong. It does just slide right off when you get it moving. After attaching the mechanism over the deadbolt, we tested it with the remotes (2 come with it), and it works beautifully. It comes with 4 AA batteries installed. The other nice thing about this is that our deadbolt still works with a key if we want to use that or if the batteries need changing in the unit. If you have a regular deadbolt, I would highly recommend this kit over replacing with a complicated remote locking mechanism.

Easy remote lock
This remote lock is super simple to install and operate. This is a cost effective way to add a remote to your deadbolt lock without having to purchase a more expensive remote, keypad assembly. You simply remove the tab from the Battery pack on the unit, push the pair button on the back of the unit until the Red LED lights, then you press the button on the remote. Installation is easy as it attaches right over your existing Deadbolt knob. It has Magnets and will attach right onto a metal door. If you do not have a metal Door it comes supplied with a plate that has 3M adhesive strips that will attach to your Door , and the unit will then attach to the Metal plate. This is for use on Deadbolts that operate in any direction, or if you want to change which button on the remote you want the operation to be. You simply remove a battery “AA” from the unit and change the polarity switch, wait Ten Seconds and reinstall the Battery. You may have to make minor adjustments up or down to get the unit to work smoothly due to the difference sizes of knobs. This works from up to 80’ away, works with existing keys, works on all Doors, and has a rolling code technology with over 1 Trillion codes. If you don’t want to shell out big bucks on a remote door lock this is the one for you.
