Camelot Electronic Keypad Single Cylinder Deadbolt
Gate Lock - Exactly what we wanted
Now we're going to get one for our front door!
The only thing we need to add is a cover for the back gate so we don't have people reaching over and opening the gate.
Schlage needs to design one specifically for gates and have a display to list the last codes that were used to get in.

I did my research and settled on this electronic deadbolt because the actual bolt mechanism is manual. Others where there is a key fob or the electronic mechanism actually retracts the bolt results in far quicker battery drain. I found it easy to install, program and use.
Handlesets.com was the only place I could find the electronic deadbolt paired with the handleset, the big box stores didn't pair it this way. I had a problem with a small defect in the finish on the first one shipped however; a quick call to customer service and there was a new one in the mail pronto and I had it in two days...and the return was just as easy. I couldn't be happier with the deadbolt and with customer service. I will be ordering more from handlesets.com and the family of build.com websites for sure!

This is the 4th electronic deadbolt I have picked up from Schlage and I'm still highly satisfied with them all. I picked this up for my new residence because of my experience over the last couple years.
The ONLY issue I have ever had with these locks is when you are in the middle of punching in a code and it just....stops. The #s don't light up and you sit there staring at it. It's like the battery dies for a minute. After a certain period of time it "wakes up". This doesn't happen often at all - hence I will continue to buy these - but when it does happen it's frustrating. Not enough for me to take a star off however.

No Key Needed !
No more lost front door keys or rushing home to meet contractors, or visiting friends & family with my my new electronic front door lock. Electronic lock holds up to 19 different 4 digit codes that can be easily added or deleted. It took a few tries to learn how to program the lock, the instructions were not exactly seamless, but love it now that I learned how to use it. Contractor said installation was not hard. Best prices on product, extensive product line, and fast shipping; what more could I ask?

I put these on all my outside access doors and I love them-- the kids can come and go without keys-- ditto for my wife when she goes on an early morning run. A couple doors I also put the keypad handles on too and my only disappointmet was that I had to drill some new holes since the lever keypad extends too high and interfears with the lock (It was only an issue on 1 door as 2 others were new-- I just wish somone had mentioned it before I ordered). The nanny and cleaners have their own codes and I don't have to worry about keys floating around and getting lost. The bolt is sturdy and included a lot of options on the receiver side

Wish I'd bought this years ago!
This item is great! It has a clean simple look, which is nice with my older house. The keypad isn't tacky. We've been using it for about 3 weeks. It is so simple to use and it is great to not have to carry house keys! No more climbing in through a window when I lock myself out! It was slightly tricky to install, only because the hole through the door needed to be larger, and cutting a hole (even with the right drill bit) through a metal door is a bit of a pain. So worth it! It is faster to get in the door than with a house key. I love this product and would recommend it to everyone.

I always wanted a keyless entry lock for my home and this one has proven to be more than I was looking for. The quality is excellent and it's features are very secure.

Top notch, great convenience
If you have a garage entrance or a basement door, this is the product for you - no fumbling with keys or worrying about locking yourself out. I've had this deadbolt installed outside in the weather for almost 3 years and it has been problem free. I've not had to replace the battery or adjust any part of the lock other than occasionally wiping the finish down to keep it clean. The installation is has a couple more steps from a normal deadbolt but it's not complicated and once you're installed one you'll have no issues on subseqent deadbolts or handles.

I chose the antique brass Camelot electronic keypad deadbolt along with a locking lever lock. Both arrived exactly when and as expected and were keyed alike (free service!). It's my first electronic lock and it works perfectly. I am enjoying the luxury of not fumbling with front door keys and feel the locks are more substantial than my previous Schlage locks. No more fearing I'll lock myself out. My neighbors have received a recommendation from me that they NEED one of these! Great buy and purchase.
