SmartCode Contemporary Electronic Deadbolt
I read some bad reviews on this product, but decided it could not be that bad. It was.
Mechanically it was actually put together incorrectly, so I had to take apart the latch and reverse it to get it to work. In addition, it must seat perfectly or the latch will not consistently open and close.
I installed it after spending over 2 hours adjusting everything correctly, but eventually convinced myself that I should not support KWIKSET on this OVER PRICED and less than satisfactory product. Back to Schlage for me which for the same price can also be wirelessly controlled and programmed from anywhere.

I've wanted to do this ever since I moved in. On the other side of that locked door - 5' away- are the slip-joint pliers I need to tweak this nut into place... 5' = deep sigh.
Last week it was about 100 steps to walk around the house to the back door, go thru the house into the garage, grab the pliers and then come out next to my project. All because that door was locked. Now I can come and go as I need, save time and steps just by punching in a few numbers and watching that deadbolt slide over. I love it- I may need these on ALL exterior doors!

This product fit the bill perfectly Quick delivery and easy to install. No more need to carry keys on a walk and can easily program for someone to check on house while gone.

Great product - just wish it would have come with the necessary batteries.

Mine was installed a month ago and no problems so far. I have had these types of locks for many years and love that your child doesn't have to carry a key. It also would be useful in an emergency, 911 could be given the code
and make entry quickly and easily. So far very pleased this is my first kwikset one. I haven't be diappointed in any of thier products.
