    I was happy with the installation but wish old bolt latch would have work, swapped it out and put in new one that came with lock. Made ajustments so it would slide with no friction on strike plate, smooth as butter now so hope batteries last. Easy to use but Wish they had a brass finish and also auto unlock via bluetooth feature when approaching lock. That's why only four stars. The button below the lock is just my door bell. Hope they can add the auto unlock with firmware upgrade then would it be awesome!

    The Encode WiFi Deadbolt lock was a great buy for me. It was easy to install the set up on my ring security system was compatible and it works flawlessly. I highly recommend this product if you’re looking for a great Deadbolt lock.

    i have only had the lock for a week. It's been great so far. I recommend it for the following reasons: - very easy to install. I have to admit that when I opened the package and I saw all these parts and screws and bolts I got panicked. I said to myself how is this easy to install? No way! I got the instructions book and I followed step by step and before I knew it, it was perfectly installed. I feel I am an expert now, so easy! - the lock works like a charm. It notifies me who gets in and out using their code, and I have it on autolocking after 15seconds everytime, so I don't even have to lock after I close the door. - the app is so helpful, I have full control, I can lock and unlock from the app! Sweet! Now, the next time the cleaner comes while I am on vacation and says: I came and cleaned today, I will know exactly if she came and how many hours did she stay! I highly recommend it. I could not decide on a lock for months, but I am glad I finally decided.

    Better than Nest

    I have had Nest locks for a couple years, since deciding to merge to a "smart" home.. I don't want to say the Nest products were bad, but I have have a few problems with the locks.. Ultimately, one of my locks broke completely (after only two years), and I had to replace the product.. I didn't know which product to go with, but I knew I wanted something different, and I have had regular Schlage locks in the past, and was happy with them.. I knew as soon as I opened the box, this was going to be a much better product.. The quality of the lock was noticeably better and SOOOOO much easier to install.. Also, this product does not require a "hub", unlike the Nest.. So, you only need the lock and the App.. The app is user friendly and actually better as well.. I am happy with this purchase and recommend as a smart lock.. I will (eventually) be replacing my entire lock collection with these..

    Great Touch Screen Deadbolt

    We had been looking to get a touchscreen deadbolt like this for a while for our house since our vehicles use Bluetooth to unlock them also, so a touchscreen deadbolt would allow us to not carry any keys with us when leaving, quite the bonus. I also set up a Next x Yale lock shortly after this one. The Schlage one is easier to set up, and the fact it still has a deadbolt option means if the keypad were to lose battery power when we're out of the house, we could still get in - a feature the Next x Yale lock does not have. The app works well and is easy to set up, program, and work. And, it's cheaper than the alternatives. Unless you're hooking up to a pre-existing network, this is a great option. (We are running two separate locks since we live in a duplex and have a Nest doorbell, otherwise I'd have chosen two of these!)

    Initial Assessment: 2 Thumbs up

    We bought this wi-fi deadbolt to replace an August Lock (2nd Gen). We have just updated with a Ring security system. We had decided to replace the August video doorbell with the Ring Doorbell 3 Pro hoping that the latency of the Ring would greatly outperform the August (latency with the August doorbell is horrible). As part of this upgrade, we wanted a wi-fi lock that "works with" the current system. The installation was pretty simple. Some of the parts did quite seem as "sturdy" as parts I had seen for the Yale lock. However, they do appear sufficient and the supplied strike reinforcer definitely makes the security of this lock seem solid. Setup is a breeze for the Schlage app and the Homekit. There's an option to add an Amazon key as well. However, I'm not sure both can be added. I'm currently looking into this. The only real negative to the entire installation was the lack of the inside assembly screws. Having begun the installation a little late in the evening there was nowhere I could go to find the screws needed so, I spent a solid hour searching the whole house for 2 screws that would fit properly. I had briefly checked the packaging before installation but had evidently overlooked these two screws. All in all, it's a great lock. My wife and I really like the look which matches our house style perfectly (modern) and it was an easy installation. Look for an update after we've incorporated it with our new Ring system.

    Very good smart deadbolt

    The smart lock looks good, and easy to use. The installation take a while even with Best Buy in-home installation due to some bluetooth issues, but once we reset the lock, including draining the power, it went well. Make sure you have a strong WIFI signal too. One thing is the app seems taking a while to update setting to the lock. When I try disable auto-lock thru the app, it takes a minute or 2 to update to the lock with new settings. Still recommended!

    i got this a while ago for my front door, works really well. I got this mainly because i didn't want to make keys for people i dont fully trust. With this keypad lock i can give a code to a family guest who is visiting and remove the code once they leave. Im sure we all have family members we dont fully trust.

    A little bit of work to get it to fit but worth it

    I purchased this lock because we are always wondering "Did we forget to lock the front door" (especially when 20 minutes into a 3 hour drive) and by "we" I mean me. I have found the lock simple to use, once installed. The Schlage app works well on my iPhone. Overall, I have really enjoyed this lock and the comfort that it affords me knowing that I can check to see if the front door is locked using the app from in the car or my wife can, if I'm driving.

    This is my first wifi enabled lock and I had my concerns. However, this lock worked exactly as advertised right from the start. The app also works well and I appreciate getting notices when the deadbolt is locked and unlocked. Setting up temporary codes is a breeze also. The only improvement I can think of is that it would be nice if the numbers on the keypad illuminated, perhaps with some kind of proximity sensor.

    I am so happy I bought this. I can see if I forgot to lock the door without having to drive home, and I can lock it remotely! Friends have codes instead of keys so I can see who comes in and when if I need somebody to feed the pets. Batteries die quickly when you use the lock with codes and with smart devices. Using key and manually turning deadbolt saves battery life.

    Me and my wife absolutely love this lock! The looks of it as well as the function is absolutely amazing! It gives us an extra sense of security for when we are not home and the kiddo is. We set his password for the door and as soon as he gets home from school it lets us know passcode “His Name” has unlocked the door. And it the times you just want to check and see if everything is locked the App opens up instantly showing locked or unlocked. Would not go with another product after this.

    I like that this door lock is WIFI. Most others are Z wave and need a separate controller to operate remotely. I purchased this product in hopes of using it on one door and ended up using it on a different one due to the deadbolt hole on the solid metal door was too small. We will be purchasing another one if we ever replace the door. I like the look and ease of use. I have not had it long enough to comment on battery life.

    We have installed three of these in our new home. Very easy to install. It is great to be able to access house by entering code rather than having to carry keys. Easy to program and connect to home internet. You receive notifications each time lock is accessed. You can add specific codes for specific user access - cleaning crew, friends etc. HIGHLY Recommended1

    I have used another Schlage product for my keyless entry on my house. This unit with the built in wifi and app make this unit worth the extra money. The best feature is you can assign when certain codes. These separate codes are useful if you have a dog walker or maid that comes by when your not at home.

    I love this keypad. And using the app on my phone is wonderful. It looks very nice. The installation was OK. It could have been easier. But I guess It depends on the door that you’re installing it on. We had to do some drilling and a little bit of modifications to fit our door. Overall a very good product.

    I just upgraded my Z-Wave devices to the Encode Wifi units. What a difference in reliability and experience they make! I get real-time open/close alerts and the status and battery information are accurate all the time. Battery life is great, even the install was easier than the Zwave units. Firmware updates over wifi, what more can you ask for?

    Awesome product for our smart home. Easy to install and connect to our internet network. Remote access to our lock is a must have. Great product. Better connectivity that previous Schlage lock. Different series that requires a WiFi adapter that would connect. This lock is real deal and very secure.

    Based on reviews, and features this was the lock I wanted. I planned to continue using the key myself and only use code for guests or others I need to grant access. It was replacing the lock on an internal back door for my condo, in an otherwise secure building. The price was right. Installation is actually very easy, BUT... Unfortunately I did not get to even use it. I thought I was good because it was replacing regular Schlagle deadlock, but the actual existing hole for the deadlock bolt itself was too small for this deadlock. If you're like me, you either do not have the tools to drill a larger hole into the side of your door, or you simply do not want to deal with that. Save yourself some hassle, take apart your existing deadbolt, and measure the hole, to ensure it's truly compatible. I now suppose that's a good thing to do for for *any* lock though, but I assumed deadbolt sizes (especially from the same manufacturer) were pretty much universal.
