Expert Reviews


What experts liked

Sturdy design. Unlocks quickly with fingerprint. Can set up temporary codes.
Greatly improved fingerprint reader. More streamlined setup and smoother hardware operation. Rechargeable battery pack is more convenient than AAs.
Smooth deadbolt mechanism. Easy to setup and use.

What experts didn't like

Still on the pricey side.
It doesn’t offer remote access, which isn’t essential; however, it has the largest internal housing we’ve ever seen and a similarly large external one, so we’d recommend looking for one of the many other smaller devices available.
Same price as our top pick in this category. Oversized interior escutcheon. Minor operational hiccups.
Bluetooth only. Bulkier than some other smart locks we tested.
