I bought this bluetooth deadbolt a year ago. I had it installed in 10 minutes and set up in another 10 minutes. Over a year I had to install two updates which were simple and the app walked me through the process. The lock itself is convenient. The only time it's been a hassle is when my phone is in my back pocket and the signal doesn't reach the lock. Not bad since I only have to swing myself around so the phone faces the lock so I can't complain. Generating "e-keys" in the app for other people is a great feature while away and needing to give someone access to your home (although the only pitfall is having to leave the handle unlocked...I wish they would make a door handle to match!)

Cool idea but still needs work. Fob keys are not always working and the iOS app hasn't been working well with me since ios9 and I've had nothing but headaches. The trick is kinda the same process as taking out your keys. I just open the Kēvo app and I walk up to the door and finally I was able to get it to unlock. Leaving the phone/fob key in you pocket has been a big headache and it doesn't always work for me. Installation is really easy and the end results make you feel like you have an awesome looking house especially when people ask how you opened the door without keys. It's a cool idea it's just not ready yet and needs improvements.

Irratic operation

By John K

from Copiague, NY, United States

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

I have had this more than a year - I constantly have to reprogram my wife's iPhone and then go back and reprogram mine as it becomes disabled. I would say the lock only opens 5 out of 10 times I try to use it, and at times the lock will open or close randomly even though I am no where near it. My wife has given up and only uses a key - I continue to try using it although I am reaching a point of total frustration. Its a great idea - if it would work!

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

Purchased this lock for convenience and b/c it's a cool tech kinda thing. Main purpose was for when we are out walking the pets & don't want to bring a set of keys. We always have our phones with us, so thought it would be perfect.
Far from it. The app is always shutting down. Sometimes takes up to a minute for the door to connect and unlock (even when connected to the house wifi). We also purchased a booster and plugged it in right behind the door. That doesn't help either. Sometimes it doesn't work, I'll get my keys out to manually unlock & by the time I go to shut the door, the Kēvo magically starts working & locks the door even before it gets shut.
Very disappointed. Wish we would have just purchased one with the keypad.

Nothing but trouble

By unsatisfied

from Florida, United States

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

I bought a Kevo lock and it did not work, so after a few calls to troubleshoot, I brought it back to the store and exchanged for another one. After numerous calls to Kevo it appeared to work, though inconsistently. After a few days, the touch quit responding and then the fob quit working. Finally I returned it and got a refund. I ended up purchasing a different kind of lock. The idea of a kevo lock was appealing but unfortunately in the end it was more trouble than anything.

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

The fob works about 10% of the time, the phone works but very slow. Plus when I go out the door before I can close the door it is already placing in locked mode. very frustrating. Not sure I would purchase another one.

Buy a push button lock instead

By Smatters

from Minnesota, United States

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

I bought this over a year ago for our lake house. The upside is that it CAN operate via Bluetooth when the stars are properly aligned. The downsides are many: * It locks itself occasionally when you are closing the door, whether you touch the ring or not. We generally leave the bolt extended if we don't want the door locked. * The iOS app stops paying attention after a few weeks. This is awful for a lake house. When we walk up to the house after a few weeks, touch the ring, the lights spin, but the lock doesn't open. We have to open the app to remind it to pay attention. Then the door opens. Not reliably a hands-free experience. * It is hard to simply send someone a 'key' and have them use it. Our daughter in law and toddler were locked out for a half hour since her personal key needed some magic before it would really work. I'll skip the bad things I have to say about Kevo Plus for somewhere else.

Not really worth it.

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

Doesn't work half the time with your smartphone as your ekey. Most of the time you have to close the app and reopen the open the app to operate your lock. Sometimes you actually have to log out of your account and log back in to get it to work. The time you spent you could have just used key to manually unlock the door.

Have had it for 3yrs now & it's been a love/hate relationship & now since they starting doing all the updates on it & these last updates really screwed ours up. It doesn't want to lock or it unlocks on its own w/o my phone even being by it. Just about ready to trash it. Just really frustrating sucks!! At this point definetly would not recommend to anyone.

Good in concept--failure in practice

By MikeOhio

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

I purchased the 925 Kevo over a year ago. As the holder of the master account, I have had few problems. My wife and daughter have subordinate accounts and they can rarely use the touch EVEN with their iphone in their hand! I have read all sorts of items on the Internet but there is no solution that really works. I have "recalibrated" more time than I can enumerate--ZERO. We are back to brass keys as this Kevo device does not work for 2 out of 3 users--UNRELIABLE!

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

I love the concept but have had consistent trouble. A lot of the time when I try to unlock my door by touching the Kevo lock, it just flashes red after searching for a few seconds. A lot of the time when I check the app on my phone, I am not logged in and need to put in my ID and password again to enable it. It is more convenient to just use a key. I don't want to have to remember another password and put in all the time. I'll read the instructions and FAQ again to see if there is something I'm doing wrong. But so far has fallen below my expectations for a $200 lock.

I do absolutely love that they started offering free eKeys beyond just the 1 free originally.

It works but is slow to open with either fob or phone app. Sometimes it has a mind of its own and will lock when you walk outside without anything. Thats why i keep a key hidden just in case. I have tried calibrating and updating it but it randomly locks even when the door is still open.

I bought the Kēvo lock when it first came out. WHAT A MISTAKE. This piece of junk has gotten worse and worse as time goes on. I spend more time standing outside my door waiting to get inside my house than you can imagine. I can only access the lock thru my iPhone the touch and fab will work maybe 1 out of 7 tries. I would not recommend this product at ALL
