Internet enabled lock
For example, my friend is going to open the door. I would program a code over the Internet, and text it to him so he can use it to open the door.
Not sure if something like this exists.
Thanks a lot.

Thank you. That's pretty much what I'm looking for.JoeStale wrote: ↑The Schlage Touchscreen Camelot is what you want: http://m.homedepot.ca/Product/productde ... 29&lang=EN
It is Wink hub compatible and you can add or revoke keys using the app from anywhere and see if the lock is being used.

Thank you. The friend thing was just an example. There will be different people with different codes using the lock. I will not be available when they need to open the door.

Thank you. That's what I'm thinking too. It might not be as reliable as a simple keypad lock. I don't want a headache.quanta wrote: ↑The only one I've heard that has this capability is the August Lock, and there are a lot of complaints about the unreliability of the device, i.e. long delay to unlock, sometimes will not lock door behind you, etc.
There was another one, Lockitron, however its latest version removed the WiFi transmitter because it was too much of a battery drain.
Unfortunately this type of gear is still totally new (like most home automation gear) and there's a bunch of kinks to work out.

I don't own this lock yet since I'm waiting for a good sale first. I would be really surprised if you couldn't change the passcodes from the Wink app since it is a feature on the Nexia version of this lock: http://www.cnet.com/products/schlage-ca ... -deadbolt/

I think I'll buy it and try it out. Worst case scenario, I'll return it.JoeStale wrote: ↑I don't own this lock yet since I'm waiting for a good sale first.

Easiest way to be sure is to email Schlage or buy one from Home Depot and use the app on it before installing.
The Wink hub was only released mid last year so you will see varying reviews. However, IMHO, it is the best automation hub available since it supports the widest variety of devices due to multiple hardware radios. And Wink has been updating their software to improve it.

Amazon.com or .ca?schade wrote: ↑I've had the Schlage Touchscreen lock for almost a year now and have no complaints. I tried to setup a Wink hub to pair it with, but the wink is a real pain . I'm going to get a Vera Lite controller instead.
I bought my lock from Home Depot and got them to price match amazon.com's price of $159

I used Amazon.com.. I just printed the page out a brought it to a couple HD stores. Some don't like to price match Amazon.mawzi wrote: ↑Amazon.com or .ca?

Not sure if the cold weather will be an issue. The inside part of the lock is in a heated place.rmowles wrote: ↑The schlage lock in the link above had several comments about cold temp issues oddly enough.
Another option is a VeraEdge with Kwikset Zwave lock like this:
https://www.aartech.ca/product/00/VERAE ... -Lock-Kit-
You can pick/upgrade to any of the Kwikset locks, not just the one bundled. Vera supports a much wider range of Zwave devices as well as some alarms, network devices, etc.
Just another thought. VeraEdge is more expensive and a bit more technical than Wink but can offer additional flexibility.
Or if you prefer Wink it should also support Kwikset.
