[Lowe's] $129 Schlage Camelot Connect Deadbolt Aged Bronze

Just noticed these are clearance at Lowe’s. Only Aged Bronze colour. They usually are atleast $200 elsewhere (including amazon).

Have one for over a year. Works well with SmartThings. Pretty solid overall. Just bought another for the cottage.

Combine with Ebates and the Air Miles Mega Miles.

Worth mentioning a new version of this with zwave plus was released a couple weeks ago. I grabbed that one for $250 off Amazon.ca

This one is still a great deal, but is the older version afaik

Pretty sure this one has zwave as well, but this one does not work with the schlage wifi module.

The last gen had zwave as well.

Edit. Just realized you said zwave plus. So yes this does not have that. You are correct. My mistake.

Any issues with it in the winter time? Reviews say it gets stuck in the cold.

I've has this installed over winter. In extreme cold situations, the touchscreen would randomly activate. It was as if there was someone pressing one of the random number pads, and then a few seconds later it would give the long beep after timing out from the initial activation. This behaviour would only happen in extreme cold (lower than -25 - -30C), and it took me a while to figure out what was happening. I eventually stood right beside the door and would hear the initial "keypress" and then the timeout beep after a few seconds.

Good price for a smart lock.
A quick question, what makes the touchscreen better than actual buttons?

Are you using alkaline batteries? It's probably happening because the extreme cold is dropping the battery voltage and the electronics aren't getting enough juice to function properly. I bet if you switch to Energize Lithium the problem will go away.

I'm pretty sure this model features battery installed in on the internal side. Temp drop is not that significant on the door inside.
I experience temp-related problems with Schalge BE365, and the reason is frozen condensation on the delicate lock internals.
Sounds like in Connect model ice shortens buttons' circuits instead.

I’ve had this ( in satin) installed since Jan in Alberta, no issues with the cold, and it’s a textured keypad so not sure if you can see finger prints. I have it connected to SmartThings, but don’t really use the smart part as only value I see from SmartThings is, seeing battery life and checking that we locked the door at night. But I’m quite happy with it
