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!!!

We've had this lock for one year and has worked very well for us. A few kinks, such as, if you touch the lock by accident you can lock yourself out! Sometimes it works when in my pocket or purse, but sometimes it doesn't. Overall, I love using my phone to open the door. Also, you can use the app to see if your family members have gone in or out if you like to spy on them!

Kevo Bluetooth Electronic Lock

By WinterPeg

from Winnipeg, MB, Canada

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

I purchased this lock back in the summer and had some concerns of how it would function in our -20c (-4f) winters and if the batteries would hold out. So far I have not found any problems weather wise but occasionally when two fobs are in close area the lock tends to get confused (this is a known concern and easily rectified). This lock now completes my home automation by allowing control over the lock via my smartphone.

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

Was a little hesitant on first purchasing a smart lock for our new house we just bought this past summer. Turned out to be one of the better purchases for the house. So easy to use and manage. Only thing I would change would maybe be some of the mobile app features. Would be nice to get alerts when guest's open and lock the door. Also, would like love integration with IFTTT.

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

The lock works fairly well locking and unlocking the door. Sometimes it is super quick and nice to use, other times you have to try multiple times for it to work and eventually dig in your pocket for your phone to open the app and unlock from in there or worse yet use your keys... Overall i am happy but it could be much better.

We bought a new home in May 2016. Bought this lock on back door. It has NEVER worked properly. We were constantly getting locked out of our home. Finally took the batteries out and just use it like a normal lock. Very disappointed.

Works fairly well

By Roger 80920

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

I really like the locks overall. The only complaint is occasionally I have to open the app to get the lock to respond...not often, but almost always when I'm in a hurry. My wife would say her purse hits the door on the way in and the lock activates...making you manually unlock it before closing the door to prevent damage to your door frame.

I no longer have to turn around to ensure I locked the front door. Most mornings I have a million things on my mind and can never remember if I locked the front door most days. I am able to check the app to see if its locked and if not, use the gateway to lock it without having to turn around and go back home.

This is a fantastic lock. I bought this lock so I don't have to Fumble for keys while carrying in a handfull of groceries along will all my kids stuff she had decided to bring with her that day! I also had invested in the Kevo Plus which allows other in by the press of a key from my smartphone, great for when you forgot something at home and you can send someone who is close to pick up.

By DisgruntledDave

from PA, United States

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

Works great some times. Doesn't work most of the time. About 1 out of 10 tries it will lock with one touch the first time. Typically I have to spend 30 seconds or more trying to lock my door. Not very convenient. I tried all the steps to optimize performance but nothing helps. I purchased this to make security quicker and easier, but most of the time I come home and Door is unlocked because not everyone is as patient as I am trying to make this work.

A little slow response when used with Kevo Plus and remotely locked or unlocked. And it would be great if there was a model which could be used on a gate with the touch lock on both sides

Kevo 2nd gen review

By techgospel

from Undisclosed

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

Ordered 2 Kevo 2nd gen locks for our new doors. From reading reviews about the 1st gen ones, the 2nd gen responds a lot faster. It does still have hiccups specially with glass doors. For those, you really have to go through the manual calibration process. This involves removing the cover and pressing the calibration button inside, then standing outside with your phone or fob at arms distance while touching the lock to trigger it. Another tip I've learned for winter, with gloves on, you can touch the lock while exhaling on it at the same time can trigger it as well. Very useful. I used to use my nose but then the temps drop well below freezing, I had to find a better way. Hahaha. The app is a bit slow to respond directly. It takes forever to connect to the lock if you're trying to control it directly from the app vs the touch to lock/unlock. Android support is quite slow as well. A key fob is no longer included free with the 2nd gen which is a shame, they could've at least included 4 e-keys. Only 2 come free with the 2nd gen Kevo. Kevo plus at $99 is too expensive for what it can do. $50 would be more reasonable specially considering the cost of the lock. Despite a few glitches, I'm still very happy with the lock. It is on the expensive side but so far, it has been worth it if you're looking to upgrade to a fancy smart lock.

Love it!!!

By Sammie27

from Ontario, Canada

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

I personally love this product. It works best with iPhones my husband has a Samsung and he has some trouble getting it to work. For the majority of the time it works great there have been a couple times where I had to tap it a second time or have the app open in order for the lock to work. There has been a couple times where it had a mind of its own and locked or unlocked when it wasn't told to. I love when I'm carrying kids and bags that I can just touch it and unlock the door and it's convenient for me to check the app to see if I remembered to lock the door. I also love how I can send ekeys to people instead of leaving a spare around the house for anyone to find. So yes it does have some faults/ glitches sometimes but what tech doesn't. And overall it is an amazing product and I look forward to buying more for my house.

With a fresh battery it ...

By cfdjazz

from Boston, MA, United States

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

With a fresh battery it works about 75% of the time, but the battery in the fob only seems to last a couple of months at best. Sometimes it fails, I dig out my key and unlock the door manually, and the contact of the key actuates the lock and re-locks the door before I can get in. This is particularly annoying because it din't work initially, and I had to use the key. It also seems to be less reliable in very cold weather. Overall, I spend a lot of time fumbling for my keys in the rain

For me, KÄ"vo works about 60% of the time. Very frustrating. It works almost 100% of the time for my wife and daughter. I think more development and reliability is needed before I would recommend this.

Love this lock

By Armand

from Riverside, CA, United States

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

When the lock was first installed, I had no problems, but as time went on, my lock would auto-lock almost every time people went outside. It turns out, we all place our hands close to the deadbolt to closed door behind us, and often lightly brush against it. Easy enough, make a consious effort to keep hands away from lock. After a while we noticed that even when we didnt have our phones on us, this was happening. What??? It is supposed to not work if the bluetooth device is in the house. Well, then we discovered that if anyone was home, any person on the outside if the house could unlock the door too. Now I was really concerned, so I experimented and discovered that the free keyfob was stored in the house about 20ft away from the door. As an experiment, I put that keyfob in my bedroom, and reset the lock. This time, to get it on the right track if learning what is outside, I took my phone woth me outside, closed the door and locked/unlocked the door about a dozen times. When this was complete, I left mu phone in the house, went outside, and the door would not lock/unlock. Lesson learned: NEVER store your keyfob range of the lock. While the lock is learning, this screws up the lock's accuracy, and can make it where the lock thinks indoors in outdoors. My lock now runs near flawlessly. I am looking forward to getting a few more Gen 2 models for my other doors.

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

Pros: Very convenient to grant access and monitor who comes in and out of your home/office. -The technology works well -easy to install Cons: -Only works on very limited number of devices. -Doesn't allow you to remotely open the door through WiFi unless you buy the extended product (PRO) which is only for sale in US & Canada and they don't ship internationally (for no apparent reason). -The FOB stopped working pretty quickly.

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

I've had this deadbolt installed for over a year & it's a decent lock. The ability to lock & unlock the deadbolt using a BT phone or tablet is quite convenient, but having to purchase yet another hub device for my home just to control this lock while I'm away is not something I'm willing to do. It's more likely that I'll purchase from another manufacturer to gain true smartlock functionality next go-round.

Solid entry to smart locks. Some caveats though

By hocr

from San Jose, CA, United States

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

I have been using my Kevo for roughly 2 years. The lock gets long ours of direct sun and is still holding up which is great. It doesn't always recognize my phone on the first try but will work eventually with a little adjustment of the position of the phone relative to the lock. You will learn what is the best position pretty quick but it can add a little time to the unlocking process and I do wonder from time to time if it truly saves me time from pulling out the time tested, trusty keys. I think its a good, solid product overall and I am looking forward to the next generation to test. Pros Easy way to open/close locks and can even send alerts to you so you can monitor who is entering/leaving the house. Looks like any other lock from a distance Simple to use, gets lots of interest from guests seeing it in action. Simple to install Battery life is pretty good, 6+ months per set of batteries Cons Check the phone compability list. Your phone may not be supported if you dont have an semi recent Apple or Samsung. It took me months before they supported the Nexus 6p and they did not communicate any plans to support the phone. I just had to check back monthly until it finally allowed me to install it. The keyfob option is pretty unreliable. We have two and have to swing them around alot to get them to register. (its motion activated) You may have to try several times with the phone in different positions to get the lock to register The sensitivity of the lock is pretty high so if you brush it lightly with your arm on the way out it could lock/unlock before the door closes. The lights are very visible but if you live on a loud street you wont be able to hear the audio cues from outside.

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

I have had my kevo for just over 2 years now. Only issue I have had was with the effect of cold weather on the electronics for the lock in the Gen 1 model. However, they resolved this in the gen 2 model. I was also an early adopter of Kevo Plus. and I would say this is an extream plus as it helped me out when my wife an 2yr old son accidently locked them selves outside in the snow while I was on a buisness trip across the country. My wife was able to alert me via our Ring doorbell and I was able to remotely unlock the door for them. as for the initial install it was simple, installs the same as anyother deadbolt lock with the exception of a wire connecting the front and rear of the lock. if needed they provide guided videos of the install on the webpage. best feature would have to be the configurable eKeys. I can create temp guest keys for friends and familey visiting our home or in one case a temp key for a co-worker who I provided a key to check on my home while I was traveling.

Not Entirely Reliable

By GJM

from California

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

I'm now on my 4th Kevo deadbolt and am using it with Kevo Plus. The status of the lock has never displayed correctly despite the first 2 replacements. The most recent problem was the lock unlocking randomly with no one around the lock or the app. Twice it unlocked in the middle of the night. Kwikset replaced it immediately, but my confidence remains low. So far, the 3rd replacement is working and has not unlocked on its own. The status of the lock still does not display correctly in the app. All other functions work as expected including notifications from guest users.
