Plymouth Electronic Keypad Single Cylinder Deadbolt
Great Handle set
The installation was easy and fit nicely into the pre-existing holes. We bought the Polished Brass and it's a very nice finish. And both the finish and the handle set have a good heavy duty and solid feel to it. Not like the one we replaced.
It does come with preset codes, and I would have liked to be able to set my own or change it in the future.
Best to check with the seller on this I might have missed something in the paperwork.
Overall, we love it and would buy another.
One less key in my pocket!!

Super Cool Lock
I'ma pretty handy person and usually a lock is a do-it-blindfolded type of installation item for me. I actually had to read the instructions to both install this lock and to use it. Installation was very straightforward if you do follow the directions though. After you install and program the lock (about 45 minutes), its very cool and easy to lock/unlock using a code. I love the ability to set up a key code for a service person (plumber, etc) then erase it later. I also like the ability to use a regular key to override, but again, I had to read the directions to figure out how to open it using a key (there's a trick to it). **If you buy this product, you have to be willing to READ THE DIRECTIONS. I rated this a 4 stars instead of 5 only because its not intuitive. Regardless, I love it.

Favorite Keyless Lock . period
This is the third electronic lock of this type that I have purchased. I started so the house cleaning crew could have access - without my handing over a key (that if lost would require us to reset all the keyed locks). It worked so well that I purchased one for the rear entry. Even better .. if we are working the back yard, no one needs a key to get in. My third went to my son's new home and I will most likely buy yet another one for our daughter's home. Works flawlessly. Beautiful finish. Fairly easy to install. I am sold.

Second One Worked Like A Champ
Ok - I installed the second one on the back door to the house. This time I didn't need to read any instructions and some of the parts in the door were already the same from the previous deadbolt. I installed this in 4 mins with a single screwdriver. So much nicer to be able to enter without a key in zero degree weather. Not sure why I didn't just buy two on the first order.
Set the code to the same number as the greenhouse - everyone loves this lock. So glad I didn't bother with finger scans. In 10 below weather I want to keep my gloves on.

great product, hard to find elsewhere
We bought antique brass. could not find elsewhere. Bought together with lever/latch. Works great but interferes with storm door latch. Had to reverse storm door hinging. Was fairly easy on Andersen/Emco door. With construction going on, numbers could be given to tradesmen instead of keys. Numbers can be deleted when they are not needed.
Had key jam in car ignition and couldn't remove it, instead of laying on floor trying to disassemble keyring, just used code to enter house and retrieve second set of keys to lock car until problem repaired.

Wanting to buy another one.
We use the lock to secure a large greenhouse door in Minnesota. I was cautious given deep freezes we have. The lock has worked perfectly and allowed us to keep the structure secure more since a key is not needed. There is a easy "lock" feature that I never found in the presale information but is so great it takes this lock from a 4 star to 5 star rating. While unlocked simply close the door push one button and turn the bolt, the door can be closed by the last one out without them having to know or use the code. Great product - right price.

Delivery was prompt. The product was good and installed as expected. Works like a dream, and saves carrying all those keys around. It also makes it easy to give family members and vacationing friends a code to get in when you are out or not with them.
The best part of my purchase was having Amber at Build.com assisting me with my purchase through Live Chat, and her prompt follow-up with an email, and her timely reply to a subsequent question. Amber you are excellent at your job and an asset to the company!

This product is great!! It is the high quality lock you expect from Schlage. It was easy to install. The keyless entry function works well. Characteristics I really like:1. Multiple codes can be programmed so that we can provide to contractors and then delete after they are gone all while keeping the "family" code 2.standard 9volt battery so that when it needs changing I can easily and economically find a replacement 3. the key pad is backlite so that it's easy to use at night.

love this lock
I ordered this bolt lock because I didnt want to have to worry about keys. I love it. I havent had the chance to use the contractor code yet, but I definately like that feature.

Just Do IT !!
The best investment ever. No more fumbling for keys. At night it is lighted. Also when just stepping outside to the neighbors just push and turn no worries, about the home being unlocked. You can have several different codes, makes it easier for others to remember in case of emergency. Just wish there was a way to know which code is being used and when. I my case not a big deal. I'm buying another for a diiferent door.
Just do it!! You will not regret it.
