August Smart Lock
Iâm genuinely surprised that this is the bar that we are shooting for. Installation of the lock itself takes only about 10 minutes from start to finish, and most anyone confident enough to wield a screwdriver can handle it. (The company has dropped printed instructions in favor of in-app instructions or a PDF.) If you have a brand-new or existing door of standard thickness (1â or 1Â¾ inches), thereâs not much to it: Remove your old deadbolt, install the Kevoâs replacement latch and interior and exterior assemblies, and insert four AA batteries.

It causes smaller viewing angles, and HDR makes it worse. The app is available in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. The Sense has been great, and being able to assign temporary codes is much more user friendly than having a guest download an app to access our house. Yes, many locks can be defeated by experts, but this one can be defeated by a motivated amateur, and the final key point for me is that the actual locking mechanism can be defeated with minimal brute force. Did you review the current reviews that show how quickly the Kwikset Kevo can be broken into with a few simple tools?
