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.

I bought this unit when it first came out and I mean I was on the list preordered and waited several months to get it. I liked the features a lot and thought it was a great idea, However in the last 2 years a lot has happened in the smarthome world. I have all homekit devices with Lutron Caseta lights, Eve sensors and insteon outlets. I am very disapointed this device does not work with homekit. I am also disappointed that it will not work remotly without the kevo plus, which fine ok i have to buy anohter device but the problem lies in I can not buy it. I have been on a list to get kevo plus for almost a year, over a year I think. That is insane they have a product that they have made and some people own but I still cant get it. I thought kevo was backed by Kwikset not a 2 man operation in a garage handbuilding everything. I think the features and updates are slow rolling out and they are falling more and more behind. I dont think they can inovate anymore to keep up. Also the bluetooth does not work the best. My wifes phone iphone 6plus never seems to want to work. My phone works fine but hers is hit or miss. I am going to give them another month or 2 and hopefully the second gen will be out and I can get the kevo plus but if not I am moving on, It has been a nice 2 years kevo but I will get the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt or the August Smart Lock - HomeKit Enabled (Silver).

Locks by itself

By Christy823

from Nevada, United States

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

I thought I would love this lock. It's a great concept but it locks itself sometimes all by itself. I have been outside sitting in the garage and thankfully did not have the door closed all the way. Next thing I hear is the lock locking all by itself.

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

I bought this because many times my hands are full and I have my keys in my pocket. With a touch my door is open and I am in my house. One item is I would love to see is the wireless key options worked with Android smartphones. I hope the next version of product does. Other than that it has functioned well.

Good Bluetooth lock

By ttominna

from Phoenix, AZ, United States

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

I installed multiples of this lock in my home and find that they are reliable and good working. PRO: Easy to install. Works as advertised. Ekeys are a breeze to send and revoke. CON: Had to also purchase the Bluetooth to Internet adapter so that I could lock and unlock when not at home. Would be great if this was integrated. The touch to unlock can be too sensitive. At a recent party at my house I ended up taking the batteries out of the lock as guests inadvertently touched the lock causing it to lock and unlock repeatedly. A more determined press and hold would have been a better implementation. Overall: I would still recommend this lock for anyone dipping their toes into home automation as they do deliver solid functionality.

Great concept, implementation needs work

By Cabadam

from Undisclosed

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

It started because I got a car with keyless entry. It was great. Then I wanted keyless entry into my house. When this device works - it is exactly what I want. Unfortunately, it probably does NOT work more than it works. By not work, I mean: It takes multiple touches to open the door. Sometimes, it just outright refuses to open, and I have to fall back to using the physical key. In the meantime, I've been sweating in my hot garage waiting to see if it would decide to open or not. Also, given that keys are now electronic, Kwikset needs to do away with the cost for extra e-keys. I do not make nearly the use of some of the other abilities (namely sharing keys with others) because of this. Overall, I DO like the Kevo, but they have got to come up with a better way to more accurately detect you when locking/unlocking. I did some reading on the second generation Kevo, and even contacted them by email, but sadly, no information I received suggested the accuracy of detection was improved in the new device.

Great idea but wish it operated better

By Pugs

from NY, United States

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

The convince is great but it can be too sensitive and turn the lock without even touching the cylinder. So some times it seems like it's not connecting. Also there is a short delay that can be aggravating.

Not happy

By SemperReformanda

from Florida, United States

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

Tho I looked expectantly towards the Kevo deadbolt, I am not impressed. After the Iphone 7 upgrade, it has been downhill ever since. Had to call tech support a number of times, 2 replacements and the bolt still doesn't function as it should. Most times, I have to wait in front of the door until the bolt sync's with my iphone. Many times, It is quicker just using the key. If I have to reach into my pocket and pull out my phone to bring it near the device, I might as well just use the key. Sad but true. I really would like a refund....

I really like the design and when it works. I on going on my 4th replacement (yes the forth - the fifth lock change) set to me by the manufacturer. I hope this on works consistently and properly. The have stood behind the warranty. If this does not have the bugs worked out. I will try a different lock.

Cool idea but just not ready

By Mokisme

from Fort Worth, TX, United States

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

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 KÄ""vo 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.

One year in Ive never been locked out

By Joylove

from Castro Valley, CA, United States

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

My biggest fear was being locked out. So far it hasn't happened. I do occasionally need to restart the app or the Bluetooth or is the app to unlock when tap to unlock fails. I also with it would warn you if you forgot to lock the door after a period of time. I'd recommend it if they add a HomeKit feature that allows locking the door remotely. their current bridge is too isolating.

The idea, the concept of this lock is fantastic.

By Willy42

from Nevada, United States

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

I have replaced every lock and lever set throughout our house, interior and exterior with quickset locks and lever sets, well over $1000 in replacement costs, including one Kevo lock. We have many geewhiz devices, we definitely are into the smart home stuff. We are very pleased with the products we have installed from quickset but unfortunately the quickset Kevo lock has not met our expectations with performance, It is hit or miss as to working properly, often at times having to touch the lock multiple times before it will function and all too many times it has locked itself when we passed through without our keys, fab, or our cell phone leaving us locked outside, luckily we have a touchpad lock on another entry door. We have gone through the process of trying to reset the lock, but this is has not help fix any of these problems. We have given up using it as it was designed and now use it only with a key.

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

I bought this a couple years ago, did all the updates. Ended up selling it. Reasons: 1) Kevo never updates their app to support any additional phones 2) The lock is intermittent at best 3) It takes forever to open when it works 4) Major battery drain 5) Kevo plus also slow to load

I have a KÄ""vo for more than 1 year and always I have problem with app. Much crash during start. Always I have calibrate my iPhone with my kevo to work correctly. But this problems could be fixed. I hope one day kwilkset fixed all problems and your app and products like Kevo work better than today.

I have two of these, very convenient. The gateway makes it worthwhile, you can't beat the remote locking and unlocking. Being able to check the status of "DID I LOCK THE DOOR?" is great.

VERY EXPENSIVE. BEHAVES IRRATICALLY - LOCKED ME OUT ONCE. AUTO LOCKED WHEN I WENT OUT WITHOUT KEYS OR PHONE. - WOULD NOT OPEN THE LOCK SOMETIMES WHITH PHONE OR KEYFOB. POOR SUPPORT FOR ANDROID. DOES NOT WORK WITHIN THE DIAMETER OF A STANDARD DOOR. I HAD TO DREMEL OUT SOME MATERIAL SO THE MECHANISM WOULD NOT DRAG.

By zach77

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

I have used the Kevo lock for over a year and absolutely love it! I had some minor technical issues for a couple days and having to use my key was surprisingly annoying, since it generally works so well. I love just being able to touch the lock, being able to provision ekeys easily, and the bluetooth gateway let's me check if I locked the door remotely or open it for someone if needed!

Sturdy lock, but opens after 4 or 5 tries!

By EdM

from Erie, PA, United States

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

Since purchasing the WiFi hub and upgraded my phone app, the locking/unlocking procedure is frustrating. Most of the time it flashes red after touching and trying to work. This can take several "touches". I get the phone out of my pocket, open the app, hold the phone much closer than when training the lock and it will open. I have retrained the lock, pulled batteries, reset the lock - the problem isn't fixed.

Best of breed so far

By Doug58

from Florida

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

I've had a Kevo installed for about a year now, and it is by far the best electronic deadbolt I have owned yet. I also like its features better than any of the competing Bluetooth locks currently on the market. Especially since adding the Bluetooth gateway to give full control of the lock remotely. Things I like: - No need for a key unless my phone is not with me (rare!) - Can grant/revoke access to others - With gateway, can simply unlock the door for someone remotely - With gateway, can lock the door remotely if someone forgets - Can view history of who has locked/unlocked door and when I'd give it 5 stars, but there are a few things which feel like a first generation product, that I suspect can't be solved by firmware upgrades. Chief among them: - Lock (as opposed to unlock) is too sensitive and can engage accidentally while exiting. I'd like to see a future generation use a magnetic reed or other sensor to only allow the lock motion to engage while the door is shut. - Unlock reaction time is not consistent, though has gotten better with firmware upgrades. But unlike my cars, it is not instant. I suspect this is at least partly due to power conservation for the sake of the batteries -- cars have much more battery capacity available plus get recharged all the time. - Remote access has a few times not worked after a phone restart until it has been done locally again first. - Not available in a double deadbolt configuration, such as is preferred in locations where there is glass in or near the door to avoid breaking the glass and turning the inside release.

Has such potential! But poor execution

By Marvin84

from Undisclosed

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

I bought this lock immediately once I had the chance to purchase it as I was eager to employ the same keyless entry to my house as I had for my car. Unfortunately, the execution is wholly lackluster. When it works, it's perfect. However, it frequently takes more than one tap on the lock to open and that's IF it opens. I frequently find myself having to bring the app to the foreground on my iPhone 6 just to get the lock to work, even though I never close the app on my phone

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

I've had the Kevo for 2 years and had it warranty swapped twice so I can say the issues are across the board and not a bad unit. When it works its great to not have to take your keys out. But about half the time you need to tap it multiple times to get it to lock or unlock and on occasion I've needed to use an actual key to get it. Wish it was more consistent.

It's very convenient when it actually works, but generally it has about 50/50 chance of working with the phone in my hand directly in front of the door. It will almost never work if you have it in a pocket - especially rear pockets. I'm always excited to see an update get released in hopes that it gets better, but as of yet it no luck...
