I bought this when it first came out. It was a little slow to react at first so you had to stand there waiting for it to communicate with the phone. An update seems to have sped it up a bit but it would be nice if it was even quicker; I could unlock it with a key just a fast or maybe faster but it would be less convenient to do so. Also, if I am wearing basketball shorts or other pants with deep pockets my phone sits low and won't communicate well with the the lock and I sometimes need to lift the phone up in my pocket or out of my pockets. My wife sometimes has to lean or twist a certain way to get her phone in her purse in a position to communicate with the lock as well. All that said, it does work well the majority of the time, is very convenient to not have to carry a key, and has a definite cool/geek factor that makes it fun to use. It is also a conversation piece any time a guest comes up to the door with you. If they can put out a software update to make it even faster and more sensitive, it will earn a 5th star in the review and I will then recommend it to anyone who asks about it. For now, it is pretty convenient and fun but the inconsistency in performance keeps it from being stellar. If I had to estimate, I'd say it works as expected about 60-70% of the time without having to touch it a second time to get it to lock/unlock. And yes, I have calibrated it more than once to see if that would have an effect.

In theory, this is an awesome product. Unfortunately about 80% of the time when I go to use it, the application on the iPhone requires you to log in. Doesn't matter if it's been 5 minutes since I last used the lock, or if it's been 5 days. SO ANNOYING! How have they not figured this out yet?! While it's very convenient not to have to use my keys, it's less convenient to have to type in my password every time I use the app. Come on Kwikset, you're better than this!

easy to set up and use. worth having but not 100%

By peter727moreno

from Seattle, WA, United States

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Nickel (99250-002):

I bought this since I live in a condo and sometimes carry a lot of bags/groceries, pulling out the key to open the door while setting the bags down is what I was trying to avoid. I have used it for about a year now, and have been pretty happy. Sometimes it doesn't read my phone and I just watch the spinning blue circle, and that's a hassle when I have a lot of things in hand and I have to do it 3 times to get in. 85% of the time it works on the first try and no issue. My roommate uses the fob since he couldn't get his phone to work and the fob seems a bit more reliable. I especially like that this cool lock is designed to look like 'any other lock' in their line up. Nothing fancy or flashy and it blends right in, especially in a condo when there are strict HOA rules about appearance and visible changes. There are 4 AA batteries that make it work, and in the past year I only had to replace them one time which was great, I thought I would be buying batteries every month.

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Nickel (99250-002):

I have had the kevo for over 6 months and have found it to be unreliable at first. With the new software updates I can trust it to work more consistently then before.

FOB stopped working after 2 months. Called Kwikset and they sent a free replacement. It stopped working after 4 weeks. Own (4) FOB s @ $25 each, not one of them works. Don't spend your money on this unless you intended to use it with an iPhone (which we do not own).

Used with IPhone, being able to use EKeys to allow others access without loaning keys. Only problem I have is sometimes you have to touch it more than once to lock or unlock. Still a great product!

Great addition to your home security!

By David J

from Louisville, KY, United States

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Nickel (99250-002):

Have had the lock since it was released, and overall have been very pleased. The finish and build is excellent. At times we do have issues with it not responding to touch and have to restart the app on our phone. This has improved with updates. Have and will continue to recommend this lock to friends and family. Would love to have it linked to wireless network or my alarm panel to allow for me to open the door from my office.

Good Idea

By Stearnsbd

from Roseville, CA, United States

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Nickel (99250-002):

These units have been installed for over a year now and have worked well... Except: Needs range (or single strength) improvement. Example - if phone is inside a purse or bag. It will take longer to operate the lock! Security: 10 Single strength: 5 Ease of use: 9 Battery usage: 9 Style: 9 Ease of installation: 7 (with no previous experience), 9 (with previous lock experience) A great improvement would allow the Bluetooth to connect to a wifi hub!!!

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Nickel (99250-002):

We have had this lock for a couple years. My husband and I are not very handy so thought it prudent to hire a locksmith and save the marriage. I have the program on my iPhone and he uses the fob. Since both of our cars turn on with the push of a button, we have no need to have our keys in our hand when entering the house from the garage. The Kevo lock is perfect for us. We have set up the kids with access on their iPhones and I rave about the convenience all the time. Get one, you'll love it!

Poor Exectuion Kwikset

By jrc438

from Undisclosed

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Nickel (99250-002):

This is a great product in concept, but execution is extremely poor. I've had mine well over a year and am beyond the point of trying to get the bluetooth to function properly. I use it as any other lock. Except on the occasions when i walk out of the house when my phone is still inside and the door locks behind me. Of course when I'm outside touching the lock, it doesn't work or sometimes it does - you just never know. I'm normally pretty presistent, but after numerous attempts, just gave up - poor working technology wins. Been through the software upgrades and they didn't improve performance.

I have had this lock for over a year and use an Iphone with it. I find that it can be very slow to respond, the good old key would be faster. It is great when your hands are full and plan old cool factor.

Work great until we replaced the batteries

By Fenbur

from Commerce City, CO, United States

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Nickel (99250-002):

We loved it when it was installed, it was so conveniant to be able to touch the lock and the door was unlocked. Then the batteries needed replaced and now we are only able to use it once a day. We lock the door with our phone, and we are unable to unlock it the same way so we have to use the key. Overall it's a great idea but hasn't work out the way we were expecting or it was demonstrated.

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Nickel (99250-002):

I got this as soon as it came on the market, at first it was very good with my iphone 5, it worked very well with my iphone 5, but then I upgraded to iphone 6, is still works but seems to be more delay with the iphone 6 until the new firmware update. So far I'm used to the few second respond already, great product! The lock is very sensitive, just a bump will activate the lock, even with a layer of clothing, so be careful.

Nice idea but not great

By JRBP

from Knoxville, Tennessee, United States

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Nickel (99250-002):

I loved the idea of being able to unlock the door without keys and when it works, it is great! Concerns I have had; it is too slow to lock or unlock, sometimes I have to repeat to get it to work and if I accidentally brush up against it, it will lock on it's own. These are design problems that had I known about, might have waited until they were corrected.

i generally don't buy v1 products, i prefer to wait for v2 or v3, after the bugs have been worked out. i made an exception here and got what i expected, an ok, but buggy, product. sometimes it works great, sometimes it's very slow, sometimes it just doesn't work, sometimes it needs to be re calibrated and sometimes that process is frustrating ... it's gotten better as the software has been updated, and it's great when it works

A Struggle

By bushibear

from SF Bay Area

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Nickel (99250-002):

We have had this lock for almost a year. My partner wants it gone-I struggle with it (I so want it to work.) Installation was not as easy as stated, routing the cables to plug in was a farce that took many tries to get just right (trying not to pinch anything.) Then started the fun... We had two different model phones; iPhone 4s and 5 when we started. I had the 5. The lock mostly worked for me after a few calibration successes and failures, his was a disaster-taking three or four tries (after calibration) to unlock. Then came new firmware, that helped some-especially with the iPhone 5. The 4s was not better. So now we have iPhone 6's, both a 6 and a 6+. The lock is on the latest firmware v1.2.3. The lock mostly works-not from your pocket or bag, but if you hold the phone out - within a foot or so it works (80% first try.) I get the "random" lock when closing, sometimes before the door is closed (the doorjamb has suffered.) I also had an issue a couple of weeks back that would not allow me to use the lever on the back of the lock to close the bolt--it would not move. I had to use the app to open and then close the lock. I so want this to be rad and work--I have tried, but if it gets worse, my patient partner will have me remove it!

Good but inconsistent

By Jcash

from Australian Capital Territory, Australia

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Nickel (99250-002):

Installed this lock about 7 months ago and have been generally happy with it and has been more reliable since last firmware update. However it's still often very inconsistent and won't unlock easily with iPhone close by, sometimes taking up to three attempts and occasionally locks itself when the door is open. My wife regularly reminds me that it would be faster to use a key rather than have to remove her iPhone from bag first. Would purchase another one (maybe a new generation unit?) but only if consistency can be guaranteed.

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Nickel (99250-002):

Easy to install and easy to use; when it wants to work. It works nearly every time for me but for my wife is a different story. She has to make sure that the kevo app is up on her phone; not just running in the background. It would be nice to have a wireless unlock option or an alarm disarm option.

Good first generation

By glenn3210

from Greensboro, NC, United States

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Nickel (99250-002):

I bought this about a year ago and am generally happy with the product. The firmware update that eliminated the need to calibrate was a good improvement from the original finicky firmware. Due to a failure, I had to return my original lock a few months ago and was given a replacement under warranty. In the time that my lock was out of commission I came to realize just how much I came to rely on the convenience factor. This first generation product isn't without its quirks. When I go to unlock the door, it doesn't consistently open on the first attempt. Sometimes it would have been quicker to unlock with the key. However, if your hands are full it's nice to be able to unlock with just a touch, even if it takes more than one try. I seem to have better luck when leaving the house. There seems to be more consistent operation since the need for a second tap is rare when locking. Overall, I'm very satisfied with the lock. I'm hoping that a firmware revision or a second generation device provides added consistency for unlocking.

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Nickel (99250-002):

I have two kids and my hands are always being used to carry stuff. I have backpacks, groceries, lunch bags, shopping bags, and pesonal items. With our bluetooth deadbolt any of my kids or myself can touch the unit and our lock/unlock the door. I have to be at the door with my phone or key fob. The bluetooth lock gets my family involved in securing the house. They like it and are aware if we locked the doors when we leave. We all take turns in opening and locking the door. When we have guest with us entering/exiting our house they really focus on this lock like a new luxury car. Wow that is very cool!
