This e-deadbolt recently replaced a traditional keyed deadbolt in a lock suite where the handle and night latch had deteriorated. It's just a deadbolt - but has been easily matched with another handle for the latch. It is our first venture into e-locks.
Installation was easily accompished in an evening.
The installation instructions were clear and unambiguous (typically American). A competent handyman should have no trouble.
The lock is not cheap, but looking at the price of lock hardware in general, it's not outrageously expensive either.
The companion app records all entries and exits - well, to be strictly accurate, unlockings and lockings. You can review these, or even be alerted to them on your mobile if you want.
There are a few points to bear in mind:
* To communicate with its companion app, the lock needs a strong 2.4 GHz WiFi signal.
* Creating a second administrative account (in my case, so my wife could create entry codes for tradesmen, friends etc) is not straightforward. Easy, yes: once you've sussed out how.
* The lock is preprogrammed with two entry codes, but once you set up your own first code, those factory codes are disabled. That's good - but it's not obvious.
We will certainly consider this lock for another upcoming lock replacement.
