Pros: Easy to install Can change to use existing keys Sends Z-Wave status even for manual/keyed events
Cons: Rekeying tool was not included Plastic cover on the top of indoor side
Other Thoughts: I've read a few reviews about these seizing up after a few months, but so far it works well. It was easy to install except that mine didn't include the tool for rekeying, but I was able to use a staple instead.
The one thing that bothers me a little is that on the back side, there's a dark plastic cover that doesn't quite match the rest of the lock. It looks a lot like the front cover on remote controls. It wouldn't keep me from ordering more, but it wasn't shown in the photos here so you should be aware of it. I assume it's done like that so the Z-Wave communication won't be blocked by the cover.
The Z-Wave communication works well and I was pleased to see that it does send status updates even when the door is unlocked manually rather than using the code. If you use a system like HomeSeer, be sure to edit the associations for this device and add HomeSeer so that it will receive status updates.

This reviewer reports that his/her technical understanding of this type of product is High and has owned this product 1 week to 1 month.
Cons: • Cheap construction • Plastic shaft instead of metal on all doorknob and lock sets • Deceptive picture of doorknobs only showing the doorknob and not the rest of the hardware
Other Thoughts: Quikset, what happened to you? I know just about everything selling in America is manufactured in China or Mexico and even assembled there but to show a picture of just the doorknob is deceptive. It was only upon investigation into the construction on the Internet that I learned the shaft operating the lock on the doorknob sets offered on Newegg were made of plastic. Plastic will not hold up on any entry door in anything but occasional use. I had to quickly cancel my order and Newgg was great helping me. Shame on you Quikset. I will never purchase anything from you ever again and let other know as well.
