As usual the people who write directions are coming from a mindset where they work with this item everyday. They don’t realize that there are non tech heads out there that don’t have the skills that the writer has. So here is what I did. I read the directions 3 times with the parts in front of me. I downloaded two videos. One was how to disassemble the lock I had on the Door then I downloaded a video on how to install this lock.. it was super easy. Go slow and recheck every step.After you install there is a step where you check the mechanism. Bad instructions. When checking the lock retraction it doesn’t retract totally into the lock. Only part way. That is a successful check. Directions don’t tell you that.After that download the Kwikset app on your phone Follow directions. The Alexa integration is awesome. Love this lock.The only question I have is when you have to change batteries do you have to go through the whole setup again.
Bought this on Prime Day for a fantastic price. I had been looking for a Wi-Fi electronic lock for a vacation home so I could allow entry even when I was back at my primary residence. This lock is amazing! It was super easy to install - 5 minutes! Super easy to set up - 1 minute total! Connected to Alexa - 30 seconds! I can program different codes for different people for any length of time, day, or minute! Creating and deleting codes takes seconds! I even programmed it to use my existing house key instead of the ones that came with the lock - 30 seconds! I would highly recommend this lock to anyone who wants the convenience and security of controlling your home’s access remotely!
A easy smart lock I can manage remotely and rekey to an existing key.I've had this lock on my front door for several weeks and am very pleased with the performance and ease of use. Installation was easy and straight-forward. There was a firmware update but that's expected for an electronic device and I actually think it's a good sign that Kwikset is already making improvements and adding new features. App is straight-forward: lock/unlock, add/delete access codes, and look at history. I love that I can set a custom schedule for each code and I don’t have to keep track of it. I even sent an invite to my wife so she can manage things if I'm away.I’m definitely getting one for my Airbnb!
Beautiful design, elegant, extremely durable metal housing, touch screen finger sensors for virtual numbered keypad. Easy installation! This is a work of art. Very nice unit.
Easily installed and works well on internet from any location.
