Easy to set up, easy to use. The convenience of being able to lock/unlock door with just touch is fantastic. Note: unlock isn't "instant" - it varies between 3-10 seconds depending on your phone's physical location (see below). Have been using lock for approximately 3/4 of a year in a cold and wet climate. Still on same set of batteries. Love the product, really wish firmware was updated to support WINK! Pro tips: - Easier to install with two people (one to hold the hardware from the outside while the other tightens the bolts from the inside of the door) ~ 10 minutes. - if you have a 32" door with a glass insert you'll need to notch out about 1/4" from the glass trim to accommodate the installation of the hardware/battery compartment inside your home. - No need to use the calibrate option. - Key FOB is automatically paired to lock from factory. - Going forward, when unlocking, easier/faster if you have the device exactly where it was when you locked the door for the first time (I.E. in your purse/same pocket/same hand etc. as it guesstimates by the phone's actual location). - Disable power management for the KEVO app on your phone. - If after doing all the above, unlocking seems to be taking longer than before, try changing the batteries (use alkaline) in the lock. Wishlist/features I'd like to see implemented: HARDWARE - ability to select the colour of LED for various states. I.E. Green = locked (instead of currently unlocked); Orange/Red = caution for unlocked (instead of locked); Purple = thinking (instead of blue); Blue = Try again - ability to lock/unlock with Wink! instead of unnecessary and expensive KEVO Plus add-on (after all, Wink! hub supports total home intergration and has the required level of Bluetooth - integration is what folks want, not another gadget to place within close proximity, fighting for valuable power outlet real estate). - ability to specify double-tap (@ the lock, not the app) to avoid unlocking/locking accidently. - smaller footprint for inside hardware/battery compartment (so as to avoid having to notch out glass trim on 32" doors). SOFTWARE - app doesn't report notifications correctly (published time of **event** in app notification doesn't match time of **event** as specified in email notification for Newfoundland time zone). I'm not referring to the time the email is received... I am referring to the actual time of the event. - app to work without having to launch it twice (first time just closes out, second time it works - Note 4 Edge as well as Note 5). - ability to sort/search history by date, time and person.

My family of five has been using this for a year. One iPhone 6 works reliably, after finding the documentation to set the iPhone setting so it would work without the app being open. Another iPhone 6 doesn't work reliably even with this setting. Another iPhone 6 user wasn't willing to bear the cost of Bluetooth on all the time and so went back to using a metal key. It works fine for one family member with a Samsung Android phone. It worked 30% or so of the time for a family member with a Moto X phone which is admittedly not supported by Kwikset. Why not??? The key fob that came with it worked for awhile, but in a year, I have had to change its battery four times. Sometimes it works for a week at a stretch, but then I have to reset it with a pen to get it going again. The lock from time to time locks on its own without anyone touching it and often even when the person just leaving doesn't have any electronic devices with them. On several occasions this behavior has resulted in us being locked out of our own house. It has not yet erroneously unlocked. If it did, I would remove it and throw it away. However, the erroneously locking is very annoying. I have had a Nissan Leaf for a year and a half and its electronic key fob has worked flawlessly during that time. Perhaps Kwikset needs to hire their engineers to redo their electronics. I give this product two stars because it does work about 40% of the time. When it works, it is awesome. However, as soon as some similar product comes along that works nearly 100% of the time, I am ripping this thing out and trashing it!!!

Life is easier

By JJBrown

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Venetian Bronze (99250-003):

I had the first generation and it was great. Then I changed to the second generation lock and it has been working remarkable. The ease of setup is a big issue for me. It took a screwdriver to install and was so simple, I could do it blindfolded. The kid across the hall thinks that he has magic, as he wants to touch it to let me in. Yet when I am inside, the touch on the outside of the door does not function. I feel secure, it is remarkable when I am carrying things as it just takes a touch. One of the best things about having this lock is that I don't have to take my keys, in my pockets, when I go out for dinner or drinks. Just my phone. Never failed me to date and I love my lock !!!!

Love this lock

By Ladymechanic

from Live Oak, CA, United States

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Venetian Bronze (99250-003):

I bought this lock about 6 mo ago. I love that I can use my phone to unlock the door. Also that I can send a code to people so that they can get into the house! I've had to use that feature a couple times! LOVE it! I think the only bad thing I can say about it is the fob doesn't ever work correctly. Also, when you come home you have to wait for your phone to connect to the internet before you can get in. Sometimes it's slow, not always though. But overall I love it.

Easy to install but.....

By gh111

from Oklahoma, United States

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Venetian Bronze (99250-003):

I bought this some time back and it's average at best. At least half of the time I will need to unlock my phone to get the app to work and even then it doesn't always unlock on the first try. Also if I have my phone in my pocket and walk outside the door will lock without me touching it. Very frustrating if you're just going outside.

Bluetooth isn't very responsive

By Crak

from San Diego, CA, United States

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Venetian Bronze (99250-003):

This is an OK unit. The Bluetooth isn't very responsive sometimes have to be right on top of the deadbolt for to work. It doesn't have very good range in the house to unlock it with the phone although that is a nice feature. I'm just not very impressed with the amount of money spent. The installation was very simple and straightforward as well as syncing with your phone.

Very Convenient

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Venetian Bronze (99250-003):

I've had this product for many years now. I love it! I don't have to worry about getting my keys out when my hands are full. The only reason I gave it a 4 out of 5 is because of the key fob. I've had a lot of problems with it. Luckily however, I am able to use my android phone now.

Does Not Work as Advertised

By Sparky1952

from Oak Park, IL, United States

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Venetian Bronze (99250-003):

I bought this lock one year ago and it worked with my iPhone pretty well for 6 months. Then Apple upgraded the IOS and it got very quirky. Technical support was always patient and very curious and understanding, but it just stopped working. They sent me a rebuilt lock and it didn't work either. They sent me a new lock, and remember I am doing the installations each time and as this was in November / December and temps were dropping. It just doesn't work with my iPhone 6 and so I use the fob. The fob works most of the time, but I often need to use the key. Not what I thought.

Erratic

By Wjp50

from Auburn, ME, United States

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Venetian Bronze (99250-003):

I love the idea. Installation was easy but functionality is erratic. Never sure when the lock won't respond to my phone despite a good wifi and Bluetooth. This sometimes results in expletives when you are carrying groceries and have to set them down to use a key. Fob no longer pairs with lock. Tried to reconnect with web instructions once, failed, and just haven't bothered to try again. Wouldn't purchase again until reliability issues resolved. I'd invest in a higher end entry set instead. I just got a new phone so we'll see if that helps!

It's been a almost year since I had 925 Kevo installed. I love it! My car has touch lock so I thought why not have a keyless entry for my house too! Now , every once in a while Kevo does not work , like I have to touch the Kevo lock several times or pull out my Key Fobs to Re activate to open the door. So far, I love it and hope it will Last !!

Great idea, but poor execution

By Mike in Ohio

from Ohio, United States

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Venetian Bronze (99250-003):

I asked for this as a gift and when I received it, I was excited to install it. The directions were clear and I was able to use the existing holes in my door. The setup was clear and I had the lock working quickly. But then, that's when the troubles began. I left my phone and key fob inside and as I left I must have brushed up against the lock and it locked me outside. Since my device was inside it would not unlock the door. Then the KÄ'VO software on my iPhone was upgraded. I used to have my Kevo app closed to operate my door, now it HAS to be launched on my iPhone to work. As a result, my iPhone battery life is diminished. The app for me was working fine, why was such a change made? So until these bugs get worked out, and the product is really close, I would hold off on recommending this lock at this time.

Be careful changing upgrading phones

By Jdw58

from Undisclosed

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Venetian Bronze (99250-003):

Would have given it a four until I upgraded my phone. Besides the occasional random operation that was not initiated it worked pretty well. When I upgraded phones to the Google Pixel it is not compatible so now I have a lock that still occasionally has a mind of its own but only a real key for my use.

I have had KÄ"vo for years and I love getting the door open without fumbling for a key. It makes providing access to guests easy with no key to return. I installed it myself, would list as an easy diy. When an issue came up, I contacted support by phone and they provided great help. Would never go back to a metal key

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Venetian Bronze (99250-003):

I own four of these locks after the first purchase I was hooked. Being able to control who goes in and out of your house by giving them a key with parameters built in by you is an excellent tool, and let's not forget this is one less key (in my case four) to keep up with.

By 3467cedrik

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Venetian Bronze (99250-003):

Installed for more than a year and it has left me standing in the rain by not responding to my touch. Other times the dead bolt actuated as I am walking out of the door. Checking battery usage on the I phone indicates up to 90% is used supporting Kevo. Last week I was 300 miles away and Kevo drained the battery ! Definitely will not recommend Kevo. App is removed from my phone and I am looking for a keyed deadbolt

This product is not made well. The motor sounds really weak and is very slow. It often stops in the middle of locking or unlocking the door. I wish I could get a refund or at least a replacement as my lock is useless.

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Venetian Bronze (99250-003):

Bought it 6 months ago for ur front door. I hope I never have to be in a hurry to get in the door because it is very slow to recognize the phone app. Takes over a minute to connect then it usually does not open on the first try. I stopped using the door and use the side door where we have a key pad lock. The only nice thing I have to say is that if you forget to lock the door, you can use the remote app to lock it... it won't unlock though.

Never carry a metal key again

By Mrs Woodbury

from Santa Clara, CA, United States

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Venetian Bronze (99250-003):

I take my phone with me everywhere. It's got my badge for work in the case. My key fob for the car lives in my purse and opens the car door and starts the car at the push of a button. My last metal key was my house, but it's been over 3 years since I carried a metal key because of our Kevo. It is AWESOME. Better than that, we went to cut a Christmas tree this year and getting down the mountain took longer than planned, so we had guests arriving. They rang our doorbell and we said, "Sorry we're running late! Here, we just unlocked the door. Come on in." Life altering awesomeness. We've also had friends come over and take care of cats where we didn't have to hide a key or arrange a handoff as we prep for vacation. We just send an eKey and it's handled. Other friends have permanent eKeys and have run by to grab some oranges from the back yard or pick up an accidentally left behind computer or book. Also, when we've been scrambling to leave the house, we've often driven away, then checked the app to make sure we actually locked the door. Usually yes, but sometimes we can do it right then. I wouldn't want to go back to my metal key lifestyle, stashing spares and having folks poke around to find them in emergencies. The Kevo is fantastic.

By konernietin

from Canada

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Venetian Bronze (99250-003):

I bought this lock a year ago and it works sometimes and some times it doesn't. The problem is that if I go take my garbage out it has occasionally locked the door behind me, locking me out, which is a big problem if you happen to run outside to catch the garbage truck and now you are standing outside in -40 C temperatures in your pjs. Also, when it works correctly it can be slow. So slow that it takes less time to pull an actual key pout of your pocket. So if you buy it make sure to carry an actual key or hide oner somewhere outside or you may be in trouble. Disappointed as this lock was not cheap!

Great concept, well built solid lock

By tomsm

from Mississauga, ON, Canada

Comments about Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth SmartKey Entry Deadbolt in Venetian Bronze (99250-003):

I have had this lock for over 6 months now and it works well. It looks great, smartkey is a + and so far its been doing what it is advertised to do. It loses one star due to lack of compatible phones. I am left with using the key fob The problem with that is speed at which it gets detected and opens the lock can be much quicker. Sometimes it has to be taken out of the pocket/purse to get detected. Loses another star for lack of compatibility with home automation vendors. I understand that this is a Bluetooth device and this is not an advertised feature, but since there is a Bluetooth hub (Kevo Plus) that sells separately at an astronomical C$179.00, it lacks simple compatibility with reputed home automation hubs. It would have been really nice to see Kevo coming together with IOT makers and stretching the use case to a whole different level by making this a simple affordable solution. As far as the lock is concerned, I'm still proud to boast this on my new front door. It works well, batteries are still holding up since it was installed 6 months ago.

We replaced the locks on all three of our outer doors with these bluetooth locks. They look cool and work perfectly, we've had no issues. Just have your device on you, tap the lock and it locks and unlocks. I don't use my keys for much anymore. And do yourself a favor and get the hub which will allow you to lock and unlock the doors from anywhere. It's beyond convenient!
