Thanks.

As with most amazon prices, the original price is kind of inflated. If you don't care about the colour, home depot's normal price is $229.

$194 is comparable to Christmas prices, but not the lowest.

Another option is at Costco, thanks to krazykanuck. If you don't care about the home automation or the button look, this includes the handle as well.

I've currently got a locking door knob and deadbolt setup. What can i do for the deadbolt. Do I just leave it there and not use it? Is there a cover or something I would replace it with?

This would be way too high if I replaced this in the deadbolt hole.

I have two of these locks and they work perfectly with Samsung Smartthings. One of them I had for a few years and working well in an exterior door condition. No need to worry about our cold winter weather.

I have it too (was 130$ around black friday) and it's great! I also have Smartthings which makes it perfect as you can unlock it, monitor it, etc..

If you get Smartthings, don't forget that you can install a custom app to get more options.

Thanks for the deal, was having my eye on z wave lock for a while.
Almost pull the trigger on this last night but the color of this smart lock won't match the current door handles color :( Wish they have other color on sale.

I love the idea of security and locks and putting it on the net. Probably using 123456 or password, not too mention the key loggers ....

That is a huge step in making anything less secure for the sake of convenience. Best prank would be to change the code just for kicks or the ex for revenge.

I wonder if insurance companies would balk at coverage when they find out you password was opensaysme (TM.)

Key loggers for this lock? How would you manage that? How are you going to install third party software or code onto this? Do you also not use wifi thermostats in fear that someone will break into your wifi and turn the heat up?

In that case, they could also be intercepting packets on your wifi network so you should just get off the internet all together.

This isn't any less secure than traditional locks - if anything, it's more secure because there is no key entry to get picked, plus the built in alarm and notifications.

Do you know how fast lock pickers can get into traditional locks if wanted? Most deadbolt locks can be by-passed with a simple bump key in less than 4 seconds, and 'opensaysme'. No skill required in that one either.

If someone is buying this lock at a premium price, I doubt they're the type to use 123456 as a password. If they are, then it's their responsibility as to what happens because of that. It's just like if someone leaves a spare key under the door mat or in the mailbox and wonders how someone got in.

Stop spreading fake narratives

edit: this lock isn't keyless, has an emergency key

If the person breaking into your house has j33t sk1llz you have way bigger problems than a burglary.

Why is anybody concerned about the security of the door lock when there are 12 windows around the main floor to gain entry through with a tool no more sophisticated than a rock from the garden, and probably a big window on the door itself or a sidelite right beside it.
Want home security, you have to live in a concrete bunker to make your door(s) the weak point you have to be concerned about.

There is a back up key. You can use a key to enter

As for the keylogger, I think the keylogger is installed on the cell phone.

But I agree, this is no less secure than any traditional lock.
