This review is from: Kwikset 99100-014 Motorized Deadbolt w/Home Connect - Venetian Bronze
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.
