Your Smartphone Is Now Your Key
With Kevo, all you need is your smartphone to unlock your door. You don't even need to take your phone out of your pocket or purse; just touch your lock, it will recognize your phone and unlock the door. No more fumbling for your keys or memorizing a code... just touch the lock to open.
Compatible with Apple iPhone 4s and 5 only.
No Smartphone? No Problem
The Kevo Fob, that is included with the lock, offers the same touch to open technology and convenience. Leave your fob in your pocket or purse and when you touch the lock, it will recognize your fob and unlock the door. Additional Kevo Fobs will be available for purchase.
Send an eKey
The key has evolved! Now you can send an electronic key (eKey) to family, friends, or visitors who have a compatible smartphone, so they can use their phone as a key too.
 
Kevo Mobile App
It all starts with the Kevo mobile app that you can download for free from the Apple store. This app allows you to set up your Kevo lock, send, disable or delete eKeys, as well as manage Kevo fobs
Is Kevo compatible with my smartphone?
Kevo is only compatible with smartphones that support Bluetooth Smart Ready/Bluetooth 4.0 hardware and have an available Kevo app. The Kevo app is currently available for iPhone 4s & 5, as well as the fifth generation iPod touch, third generation or higher iPad and iPad mini. We have plans to support all possible mobile devices. Currently Android 4.3 and Blackberry 10.1 do not fully support all Bluetooth LE features required by Kevo, but we hope they will soon. When they do, we will be ready! You can still enjoy touch-to-open entry with a key fob and migrate to your Android device when available.
 
Can someone hack into my Kevo lock?
The Kevo lock does not only rely on the built-in encryption available in Bluetooth. Kevo also provides multiple levels of military grade PKI encryption.
 
What is the battery life?
The Kevo lock operates on 4 AA batteries and with normal use, the batteries should last for a year before needing replacing. The lock provides multiple low battery indicators and provides plenty of warning to change batteries. In the event that the batteries are not replaced in time, you will need to use the standard key to unlock the door.
 
When I'm inside the house, can someone touch the Kevo lock to unlock it from the outside?
No, the Kevo lock has a unique and patent pending feature to detect if the authorized user is inside or outside of the house, so there will be no accidental unlocking from an unauthorized user outside.
 
How will the Kevo App affect my smartphone battery life?
The Kevo App needs Location Services and Bluetooth to be on, which do use some battery power (you would already be using this if you use other mapping apps or Bluetooth devices). The Kevo App is designed to take advantage of the new ultra-power-efficient Bluetooth Smart Ready Technology, so you shouldn't notice a decrease in your phone's battery life.
 
What happens if I lose my phone?
Simply log into the Kevo app on another smartphone or into the Kevo web portal and disable or delete any eKeys associated with the lock. You will need to use your Kevo Fob or the standard key to unlock the lock until you retrieve or replace your phone.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product

Pros: No more difficult than installation of a regular lock. Re-keying is a simple process with the built in smartkey. Fobs and smartphones are easy to get working.

Cons: The "triple touch to lock" function is not enabled by default. Granted you can lock yourself out (locks the door w/o authorizing via the bluetooth link or fob) but this is something that makes ownership of the lock much easier.

Other Thoughts: Take the time to calibrate each paired device and update the firmware. It takes just a few minutes and makes normal use of the lock a much better experience.

2 out of 5 eggsA view of the Kevo from another angle

Pros: Bluetooth connectivity
Early adopters got 5 additional free ekeys
Easy installation
Good companion app for key management

Cons: Had to return lock set multiple times
Last time I spoke with "support" they weren't thrilled that mine was broken again.
Vibrations in the door make it lock/unlock by itself
Lights go out on occasion
The whole thing stops working on occasion
Still no android support
Embedded help option in the Kevo app forwards to unikey and they don't seem to be communicating with the folks at kwikset/Kevo very good

Other Thoughts: I'm convinced the internal design is flawed, or this revision was rushed, or this lock set was not shock and vibe tested.

So I'm writing this update review for those on the edge: I will almost certainly transition to lockitron when the dang thing releases.

5 out of 5 eggsProud member of Club Kevo

Pros: So, I knew that I wanted to get a smart lock. I am really glad that I ended up getting this one... It took me MAYBE 10 minutes to install. The instructions were extremely straightforward.

First off, the SmartKey function is super easy. It takes literally 15 seconds to change the lock from the keys that are included to the current set of Kwikset keys you are already using. That was awesome- saved me a trip from the locksmith or having to carry around two set of keys.

Then, I just had to set up the lock from my phone. 20 seconds later, I'm done. Super easy to follow guide on your phone's screen, super easy "calibration" settings... The calibration is so that the lock knows whether you are outside or inside. A random person can't just touch the lock and have it open when your phone is sitting close to the door- that is a feature that really sets my mind at ease... and it was a big selling point on this lock.

Essentially, that is the entire install. The included fob is already set up, great for someone who doesn't have an iPhone or iPod touch.

After all of this, I sat down on the couch and invited my friends and family to my lock. They already had keys to our home, but half of the time would forget them... or lose them. Now I know who comes over and WHEN! We are going out of town next week. A friend is bringing in our mail/packages... I'll know if and when he does... PEACE OF MIND!

Another pro of the Kevo- We have been thinking of renting out one of guest rooms on AirBNB... invite someone to the lock for the weekend, remove access when they leave... EASY AS PIE. Now you don't have to worry about them keeping or losing the key...

One thing I wanted to change was that it beeped when the door locked/unlocked. After 30 seconds of inspecting the lock, there is a switch that disables it. I can't wait for Google/Android to finally support Bluetooth 4.0 Some of my friends do not have iPhones. When Google finally supports Bluetooth 4.0, this lock will be perfect.... until then, I will just buy an extra fob or two.

Great lock. Buy it, you won't regret it...

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsWorks as promised. Happy to be without keys

Pros: First to market - good for early adopters like me
Kwikset brand name
FOB availablility (the Kevo app closes automatically at times)
Works reliably
No need to drill anything, everything replaces something
Looks like a normal lock

Cons: Only supported by iPhone 4s, 5 and 5s currently.
No Android support (yet)
Calibration is tricky. Gotta do it a few times
Kevo app gets auto closed by iPhone so you'll need to remember to open it before getting up to the door or buy a FOB
Lights are a bit bright outside at night

Other Thoughts: I enjoy my Kevo, however I am still not counting myself out from Lockitron or August just yet.

5 out of 5 eggshappy with purchase

Pros: Installed kevo and the lock performance has been solid. My wife was not sold at first and was hesitant with spending so much money on a lock. However, after roughly a week of use we BOTH are sold on kevo and love the convenience of not having to pull out our keys. This is especially true when hands are full with groceries, etc.

Cons: The calibration set up took several attempts. This is the process that establishes the inside / outside detection.

Other Thoughts: Overall a little pricey but we are happy with the purchase.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY

Pros: Looks cool from the outside.

Cons: My first lock was dead, see my first review.

My replacement lock arrived today, and guess what? Same issue as the first lock. I know it's electrical because the lock only senses my body if I'm grounded to the internal ground (verified with an oscilloscope).

Electrical Flaws:
- Not enough voltage being output to the external sensing component. This is likely either a design flaw or an internal electrical short. Since my failure rate is 2 for 2, I'm assuming it's the former.
- Loose connection from the cable to the microcontroller. A non-latching connector is used which means there is a lot of play with the electrical connection inside. This is really bad form and will lead to intermittent behavior later on.
- Antenna wires are jammed, pinched, and will rub against sharp metal surfaces. it's nearly impossible to install without fraying your wires. Major design flaw. Even the instructions clearly show a pinched cable next to a sharp corner of metal.
- The battery compartment bottoms put against the connector!! Which means if you push too hard on the battery compartment when installing it, you're going to damage the internal components. A they could have easily added a stop, but they didn't. Foolish design!

Mechanical Flaws:
- Installation is a total nightmare. Good luck if you're by yourself!
- Tensions have to be just right or the lock doesn't function at all
- Noisy as hell. The beeps are way too loud and the servo is incredibly noisy. You'll easily wake the baby if you have one of these locks installed.
- Housing is made from cheap plastic, not metal. Looks and feels really tacky. especially for such an expensive lock.
- Housing is about 5 times larger than it really needs to be. Seriously this thing is a monstrosity! So much wasted space, yet they cram the cables into the smaller possible areas, making installation impossible and violating almost every electrical design rule in the industry.

Bottom line: There are serious electrical and mechanical design flaws with this lock. Stay far, far away from this one. You have been warned.

Disclosure: I have a M.S. degree in Electrical Engineering and I have worked in engineering in Silicon Valley for my whole professional career.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Design, features, sensitive enough to work with thin gloves, motor is powerful enough to drive a 5-inch backet deadbolt

Cons: Design flaws with installation that nearly defeat the point of the lock, cannot receive firmware updates without smartphone

Other Thoughts: As with other reviews, cables pinch very easily during installation, causing the touch functionality to fail.

Many other electronic door locks are designed in a way where the exterior and interior plates are bolted on the door first, passing the cables through and connecting them last, with minimal stress on the cables.

Installing the Kevo requires connecting the cables first, before bolting the interior plate. The recommended cable routing inside the unit causes the cables to bend severely at the interior torque blade, making the exterior plate unresponsive to touch (which is necessary to activate any of the electronic door functions).

Installation took 2+ hours to find an appropriate cable routing that would not cause the cables to be pinched. Will be very difficult for users with large hands/fingers, or who may have trouble with tweezers, to install.

Door lock works now, but there's the ongiong possibility that the cables can come unset from the force of the door closing, and rendering the touch functionality unresponsive again.

Otherwise, it still operates as a normal, albeit expensive, deadbolt, and the SmartKey (re-keying) feature is handy.

Will keep this unit for now, but plan on replacing it if Kwikset release an updated design where the cables do not get pinched.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Includes everything but a screwdriver. Once installed and handed, everything works VERY smoothly.

Instructions were very well organized and graphically simple.

After handing (deadbolt calibration) and device calibration, the operation is flawless!

Walking in with groceries and not having to put anything down and fumble for my keys this afternoon made it ALL worth it!

Cons: The installation time (for me) was a little longer than I anticipated.

The cable management as its explained in the online videos as well as the included documentation leaves more to be desired. You'll need to take extra time and patience to make sure that the cables going through the door and up the inside of the box are not stretched and/or pinched. Watching the online instructional videos provided by Kwikset and UniKey will go a long way!

There's currently no way to disable a fob via mykevo.com. I am currently using this system with *only* fobs since Android support is not yet available. In this scenario, the web interface is pretty much useless. I can neither create users to send eKeys to nor can I purchase eKeys.

Lastly, for those of you that are security conscious, this system uses the well-established Kwikset deadbolt lock system. There are already videos posted of how to physically pick the physical lock on this system since it uses a similar design as many of the deadbolts with Kwikset's 'rekey' technology. That design has been proven to be pickable with no outward physical damage quite easily. If security in this regard is important, I'd look at something else.

Other Thoughts: I installed this deadbolt system in about 30 minutes, and device calibration took another 10-15 minutes. This included removing the original deadbolt, as well as taking the back compartment off to realign the mounting bracket to be as parallel to the vertical edge of the door.

I bought an extra fob to leave in my under-seat bag on my road bike but am not sure how well storing the fob in that location is going to work.

Once again, I'm currently using this lock with just the fobs. There is no way for me to remotely manage anything to do with my lock or purchase eKeys without registering an iOS device as the "owner". I'm not upset about that at all, since I will certainly make due with the fobs that I'll keep a close eye on.

I live in a rented apartment so I immediately disabled the sound function via a rocker switch beneath the rear cover to appease my neighbors.

This device is for those of us who want simplicity and ease of use with the front door deadbolt. However this is *NOT* a replacement for your keys. The system is "in addition to"!

1 out of 5 eggsDoes not work at all

Pros: good idea, looks nice. Doesn't work though.

Cons: Good idea, terrible execution.

Terrible design. Wires pinch and cause electrical shorts inside the chamber. The connector to the micro controller is a non-latching type making the insertion force too small. In other words it comes loose way too easily.

The wires rub against sharp metal corners inside the lock, resulting in very poor touch performance.

STAY AWAY from this first revision of the product. It was rushed, and you can see it at every turn in the design. Probably felt heat from Lockitron's offering.

By the way, I have a masters degree in electrical engineering.
