The downside is that it doesn’t automatically lock.

Rune Jasminda says:

Just installed one of these for a client. What a waste of money, overcomplicated. You would have to change the batteries once a month and you still need a normal catch as well.

Nathan Cunningham says:

I was debating back and forth between this or August. At this point I don’t think I’m going to be going with HomeKit. My power company has a deal with Nest where I get credits on my electric bill. So I’d be stupid not to choose Nest. Ring’s home security system sold my on them so I’ll end up getting the Ring doorbell. So now I have two major non-HomeKit systems in my home. So I just can’t use HomeKit and my reason for purchasing anymore.

This is cheaper than the August lock, I can buy one for each of my exterior doors and rekey them all to the same key. They have the remote access add-on if I want that. And I wouldn’t be surprised if they eventually add auto-lock/unlock with an update since it already syncs with your phone.

These make me think people will hack it

Any Monthly Fees?

Candycane says:

I have one I like it but the only reason it works is because I use the keyfob. Does the new Alexa work on Bluetooth or Wi-Fi with the kevo? I purchased the kevo Plus and I can’t use it because it is not compatible with new phones. Has an old list of phones.

what exactly keeps someone else with that rekeying tool to insert a different key in my lock and change it?

JC Jacobs says:

BUYER BEWARE! This product is complete trash. Constantly ran out of batteries, and the app is incredibly spotty. I live in Chicago and literally just had to stand in front of my front door for 45 minutes in the freezing cold waiting for the app to randomly kick in. Save your money. I know its 2017 and we all love cool gadgets etc. But this isn’t it. Wait for someone else to perfect the technology before you get something like this. Oh, and I forgot to mention it constantly stops working every time there’s iOS update. Save your money!

Soooo Boring video

Hi-Fi Insider says:

Install looks pretty easy

MyDominosInsurance says:

You said the inside is large. How does it compare to August? I have ordered Kevo mostly because August looks so huge and seems to stick out like a sore thumb.

Cactus Tweeter says:

Great video Andrew. After watching it I appreciate my August lock even more. 🙂
