Amazon same price.

Was really considering this but there is a there is some annoying grinding noise after full turn of the lock.

Those who can tolerate its a good deal.

Seem lounder than the round one.

The review seems bad, seems like the Bluetooth doesn’t work most of the time. I was looking at these smart locks but I decided to go with a keypad one instead to save the headaches down the line.

I have the second gen and I don't have any issue. BT works for me every time.

I can't comment on this as I don't have this gen.

Waiting for the Pro to go on sale if ever it drops to $200 I will definitely get one.

I have the pro and it works great. I can connect it to smartthings and the auto-unlock features is great.

Just picked it up, bestbuy offered 2 year warranty for $15, declined and was offered for $10 instead. Safe bet for a mechanical device.

I have been using the 1st gen August homekit for over 3 years now. Love it. Love to be able to lock and unlcok my door for friends and family when I am not home. It's pretty reliable. I love setting up the geofencing. Locks and unlock as I leave the geofence. I had a keypad lock before, and it is annoying, specially when they fail or the #pads wear out...you may have a drill hole left in your door; if your version is no longer in production.

I also have a lock box with my house key in the garage JUST in case it doesn't work. But I have never used it.

Same price on Amazon (also only on the silver and surely will magically go back up in price when Best Lie's sale is over :lol: ). Reviews are...mixed. Not sure what's better, one of these or finding one of the clearance deals on a real "smart" deadbolt from Lowes, or HD?
Edit: Actually w/o clearance even there seem to be a lot of $70-150 electronic deadbolts these days, though maybe they aren't "smart"/phone-app enabled.

What is better about the professional version, other than the fact that it's a circle and not relatively huge? It's like 3x the price...does that ever go on sale for 50%+ off? 'Cause definitely not entertaining $300 on something like that!

Tempting but I rather wait for the PRO + Connect bundle. Connect alone is $78, PRO + Connect bundle was $249 just a few days ago.

You can set it to auto lock so that it locks as soon as the door is closed. But that can be turned off.
