I just bought this one last week. $60, name brand and not nearly as ugly as the prime cables. I'm very happy with it so far. I bought it to replace a Schlage keypad lock that gave me nothing but problems after 6 months.

Edit: and it was half the price of the Schlage

Price seems good but if your worried about security stay away from this. It's most likely a very cheaply designed deadbold/cylinder.

Your better off waiting for a electronic deadbolt by schlage to come on sale or find a clearance on their older Camelot line. If you need security stay away from no name brands, wiser and kwikset. They are easier to break than you think. If you want security get yale, medco, abloy, abus, or schlage beacause it's easier to find.

Buy the Schlage. They go on sale semi-regularly. Anything with a motor, burns through batteries like crazy. These do not have a motor and battery will last you 2 years or more! These schlages are awesome and they have great customer service.
(No I don't work for schlage...just love me deadbolt! :)

I'm happy with my kwikset…… but I have a 125lb Great Pyrenees waiting on the other side of the door to greet would-be burglars

FYI. In addition to the convenience factor there are three different lock grades [strength], which include:
ANSI Grade 1- This is a heavy-duty commercial security lock.
ANSI Grade 2- This is a high residential security or low commercial grade.
ANSI Grade 3 - This is a basic residential security lock that meets the lowest acceptable quality standards for locks by the ANSI.

Just watch out with the Schlages, yes it doesnt waste batteries, but they tend to have problems with cold weather.

How does it not have a motor, but it has a keypad which clearly is used to lock/unlock the door, thus it has to have some kind of motor to turn the deadbolt lock or unlock.

We need to send one to the lockpicking lawyer before recommending anyone buy it.

From the reviews, it sounds like you need to turn the knob to lock/unlock it. The keypad controls a solenoid that frees/jams the knob's rotation.

It is correct, but it is easily fixed, multiple videos on youtube, I fixed mine in 30 min or so. Also, their customer service is excellent, I had some issues with the lock finish and asked to send me a replacement part, they send me a brand new lock instead.

. That’s right. On the external facing side, after punching in the code, turn the cylinder where the key is. It is actually a clever design since the majority of the power needed from a battery would have been to move the deadbolt. I’ve had mine for 10 years and it Is still working fine. Just needed refreshes of the battery.

I don't get this about electronic locks in North America. When I lived in Korea in 2005 my apartment had an electronic keypad, with a backlight. Slide the cover up to turn it on, punch in the number, then slide the cover back down when done. Nothing went wrong with it and that was over 1 decade ago. How are we in 2020 and I still see so many people complaining about electronic door locks not working properly? My current lock isn't great either as the backlight only blinks when I get the code wrong...and doesn't stay on. That's supposed to be a design feature :facepalm: How can it still be so hard to make keypad locks that work when mine was amazing in 2005?

Thats actually a nice design. But I saw that it uses a 9V battery...ugh.
