Smart lock help needed

Hello Guys,

I am trying to buy a smart lock for my house and I just need help (opinion) to people want to share their knowledge or experience between Yale vs Schlage or Kiwiski. What do you recommend? Keep in my mind I need something affordable and I was thinking about deadbolt.

Each has it’s own pro’s and con’s, depending on what features you need from the lock itself. Schlage and Yale are both excellent quality locks, Kwikset is also good but just a notch lower in feature and some issues with the z-wave module after a year or two in some cases but perfectly fine for ordinary use.

Check out this post as a starting point to compare the features of various brands/models to get started.

This is a good question, and one that is frequently asked. See the FAQ. It’s a few years old so there are some individual newer models, but the general brand assessments still apply:

Costco has Kwickset 916 z-wave+ for $169 - $20 off in warehouse for a final $149 price.

Thank you for the update guys
