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.

4 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: Works as advertised

Cons: No Android support yet

Other Thoughts: I bought the Kevo and 2 extra fobs for other sets of keys since Kevo doesn't speak Android yet. Hope that changes... but not bad using the fobs. They are small, unobtrusive, and Kwikset does not gouge you on the price.

The Kevo is simply great for getting in your front door cayying a bunch of stuff which for me is just about every time I go in. Gym bag, groceries, luggage, etc. It's always something.

One observation... the operating time to lock or unlock is a little variable. Probably due to the Kevo being in standby and not "listening" for the fob or phone until you touch it to save its batteries and the usual variables in wireless handshaking. Still always easier and usually quicker than using the key. Just an observation, not a con.

Also, I found when trying to program the extra fobs I needed to get the other ones, whether programmed or not, away from the lock to get the one I was trying to program to sync up. Had me scratching my head for a few minutes and I didn't see anything in the manual about that.

4 out of 5 eggsOverall Very Cool

Pros: I just installed my lock last night before taking the kids out trick-or-treating. Let me start off by saying that now that it is installed, and I figured out all the issues I encountered along the way, I think it is pretty darn cool. My wife, daughter, son, and myself can now just walk up to the door, touch the lock, and in we go! Easy as pie!

Biggest hiccup, and this is all my fault and pretty silly, is you have to have bluetooth enabled on your phone. I spent about 45 minutes fiddling around trying to figure out why some phones worked, and some didn't. Silly mistake.

Second hiccup, you cannot have any tension on the lock bolt mechanism. It must move very smooth and easy. If there is any tension, you need to loosen everything up and realign until you get to a smooth move situation. Basically, you need perfect alignment.

Cons: So why not 5 eggs?

1) It is virtually impossible to install this lock alone. The little wires are hard to connect and you need 3-4 hands to pull off the connection while supporting the lock housing.

2) The multi pin connection is down in a dark recessed hole. Difficult to hit, especially if you have big man hands.

3) Super cheap internal housing. Really, really cheap. Kinda like a $13 doorbell housing from Home Depot, except you paid over $200.

4) Cable management is the pits. There is a little sticker that says to tuck cable here to avoid binding. Yea, good luck with that. The connector that is right there is HUGE and is not going to tuck anywhere.

5) Lose feel to internal components. Lots of slop and play in the internal knob.

Let me wrap up by saying I would buy again! But I wanted to disclose fully the cons so everybody knows exactly what is up.

Other Thoughts: And as far as that lock-force video from Youtube that other viewers are showing goes, Personally I am way more worried about somebody just breaking a window than going thru all of that hassle to rip open my lock.
