Kwickset vs Shlage
Reviewed on 04/07/2018
I've purchased the Kwicksets and Shlage's zwave smart locks. I have had an 85% failure rate in the Kwicksets and a 0% failure rate in the Schlages.
I have about ten of these in the house now and dumped the Kwicksets altogether.

Installation was a breeze, adding it to my Wink System was very easy, and it looks nice.
Great Lock with an upgrade needed
Reviewed on 07/11/2017
Once I got the lock to connect with the Wink 2 hub, it works great. I initially plugged the Wink 2 into my router, but it did not connect to the Schlage lock. I followed the instructions and moved the Wink 2 closer to the lock. Everything worked after moving it closer. I wanted the hard wire connection so I moved it back, and again I lost all communications. I even followed the instructions with using a paper clip to reset the Wink 2, but it did not do anything. I then boxed up to Wink 2 to bring it box. The next morning I connected the WInk 2, and everything worked great. I can add and delete codes from the Wink 2 app. I can also lock and unlock the door remotely. Two upgrades that I would like to see.
1) I would like to add a code with a 4PM checkin on a Saturday and a 10 am checkout where the code would only work during these hours.
2) I do not like the manual unlock button on the lock. If one of my renters hit the unlock the door, it will remain unlock. The auto lock feature does not work if the unlock button is pressed on the lock.
Overall a very good lock, but I wanted to mention the two upgrades that are needed.
You also need to take apart the cover to replace the batteries, and the cover is not easy to put back onto the lock.
