Simple, EZ, Effective...like Mac meets a deadboltVery simple to install, program and use. Intuitive user-interface with back-lighting that made it perfect for the side door on my garage and the garage to home doors. The backlighting makes it easy to see the numbers in even the darkest conditions (cloudy, moonless night on side of house or even dark garage with lights out). Highly recommended and quite a good price with the piece of mind and enhancement/modernization to home.

good for a year onlyAfter a year's use, the lock motor makes three full rotations to open or close the lock, and the inside lever does not align despite the alignment procedures in the manual. When the plastic parts are removed from the back of he door, it works fine. Something in the cheap plastic used in the motor mechanism is broken.
The concept, however, is a great one.

Great Idea, Still Needs Work....I purchased the 909 deadbolt approximately 3 months ago.
It is a great idea to have a self locking deadbolt, but the main drawback with this deadbolt is that if you do not close the door completely, and if there is resstence in the strike plate, the bolt will hang up and eventually not work untill you re-activate the handing process.
This deadbolt should be used in conjunction with a reliable door closure, and the strike must not have any resistence at all.

Great concept, just a little short on detailPros-
Improvement Direct has excellent customer service and very fast delivery.
Push button to deadbolt door upon leaving
Easy installation (just take your time and read the directions)
Easy to program (note: one other posting stated that door locks automatically within 30 seconds. Please note that you can turn off that feature;it's optional).
Reduces the need for keyed entry
The interior portion of the device is rather large and somewhat unattractive.
If you enter the wrong code to enter, I am not aware of a way to clear your entry, therefore it will require a key to enter.
The keypad does not stay lighted while entering the code a night. The first key will light after pressing, then turns dark making it difficult to see the next key.

Great Locks... I thinkHave had this lock on my front door for a month now. Works fine. Only concern I have is that over time, will the numbers where down or get dirty. If this happens, someone might be able to figure out what numbers are used. Nice thing is that after a few wrong attempts the lock forces a waiting period. I keep the front door well lighted at night and someone attempting to break in would unlikely spend a lot of time there. I also love the smart key feature. Didn't have to change my key for this new lock!

Works well, but rattlesI've been looking forward to installing this deadbolt because it will allow me to let friends and family into my home while I'm away without leaving a key outside for them. This item is exactly what I expected. The interior piece is a bit bulky, but it looks okay. Despite being plastic, the interior pieces match other metal components quite well (mine is satin nickel). The instructions are sufficiently detailed for a novice to perform the installation. My only complaint, and the reason I gave four stars, is that the deadbolt rattles when the door is closed, opened, locked, and unlocked. While this does not affect the function of the item, I would prefer a more solid construction. Overall I am very pleased with this purchase.

Kwikset 909 (Deadbolt): Keyed Entry Electronic.
Does this lock work with Z Wave.......Kwikset 909 SmartCode Electronic Deadbolt
A. The Kwikset 909 does not operate on the Z wave wireless technology.
What stops a handy man or visitor from changing the code?
A. Thank you for your question. The Kwikset 909 needs the original code in order to change it.
Need a handbook for 909 smartcode thanks
A. We have the Kwikset 909 installation sheet. You can see that here: http://www.handlesets.com/mediabase/specifications/Kwikset909.pdf. For the manual you will need to contact Kwikset directly. You can reach them at 800-327-5625.
Can this product be exposed to weather?
A. The Kwikset 909 is designed as an exterior deadbolt and can be exposed to harsh weather conditions.
How do i change the code in my kwikset 909 keyless entry?
A. Please refer to the installation guide at http://www.kwikset.com/Files/PDF/SmartSeries/KwiksetSmartCodeManual.pdf Section 9.
Can I program the closing of the latch for more than 30 seconds say 1 minute?
A. No, the Kwikset 909 can either lock after 30 seconds or not.
I want a electronic dead bolt with keyed entry on both sides please help
A. We do not carry a electronic deadbolt in a double cylinder unfortunately by any manufacturer. I would suggest maybe a double cylinder knob or lever to install below an electronic deadbolt which would basically serve the same function.
does keyless come in antique brass?
A. The Kwikset 909 is only available in polished brass, satin nickel and venetian bronze. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Does SKU 909 come with combination lock as well as handleset?
A. The Kwikset 909 does not come with a handleset, you would need to purchase your preferred handleset separately. I would recommend the Arlington to look closest.
How do you change the batteries?
A. The Kwikset 909 features an easy change battery case. You can easily change the batteries by sliding the interior cover up and off, then pulling out the battery case.
How do you reverse the lock motor on the '909'? No installation guide was included in the box with the lock. How can I acquire the installation guide?
A. For technical support, it will be best to contact Kwikset directly. Their number is 800-327-5625.
My door has two holes pre-drilled 5 1/2 inches apart. Can I use a Kwikset 909 in the upper hole and a traditional round deadbolt in the lower hole? Is there enough room?
A. The Kwikset 909 fits into a standard sized bore hole and will work on your door. You will probably want to use a lever or knob in the bottom hole though as opposed to another deadbolt.
What batteries are required?
The Kwikset 909 uses 4 AA batteries. These are available at any local hardware store.
Can this be use either for left or right handing?
The Kwikset 909 is reversible for left or right installation.
Need instruction on how to change from left to right hand.
The Kwikset 909 is a deabolt, i.e. no left/right hand option.
