  • Home security for family and friends is always high on any homeowners list of priorities. Traditional key entry methods are good, but troublesome when you need to enter or leave quickly, or are carrying a lot of items as you fumble with your key ring. Here is when Kwikset's 925 KEVO Deadbolt 15 (Satin Nickel) comes in to provide comfort and security with its simple, bump-proof, design ideal for left or right-handed doors. Unlike normal locks, Kevo is a smart deadbolt that uses a touch-to-open convenience entry method when a Bluetooth connected smartphone (iOS iPhone 4S, 5 , 5S, 5C only) or key fob (smart keys) are within range of the deadbolt. Keep your phone in your pocket or purse. No more fumbling for your keys. Just touch the lock to open.

    Entering and leaving your home is easier since you can unlock the door by tapping the deadbolt. The deadbolt still operates like a standard mechanical lock, so keyed entry is possible if a connected smart key is not detected. After tapping the deadbolt, a blue LED ring light spins around the deadbolt indicating it's searching for a certified smart key. If a certified smart key is detected, the light turns green and unlocks (yellow when locking), but turns red if a smart key is not detected. However, if a smart key is out-of-range, a magenta light will appear, prompting you to move closer. Of course, these lights can tell anyone, friendly or not, about the occupancy of the home, but Kwikset has programmed the lights to only appear if the deadbolt is certain you are outside. If the deadbolt has the slightest inclination you're inside, it'll only show the blue light and then nothing so your privacy and security is protected.

    The Kevo mobile app enables you to send and receive eKeys to and from family and friends, while also managing eKey users and tracking eKey user history. These eKeys are e-mails telling people how to download the Kevo app so their smartphones become a smart key.

    Smartkey Technology
    The Kevo comes with a Kwikset SmartKey Cylinder to help rekey your lock. The SmartKey cylinder is where you place your key in the lock itself. For example, if a Kwikset lock has SmartKey, and you have Kwikset locks and keys, you can rekey the new Kwikset lock to their existing keys. With the SmartKey rekey technology, you will be able to rekey your existing Kwikset lock sets with ease.

    How secure is my Kevo lock?
    Kevo is extremely secure, both digitally and mechanically. Kevo uses multiple levels of encryption to increase digital security, and it is continually reviewed by industry-leading independent digital security experts. The lock also contains Kwikset's patented SmartKey technology, which is tested to the most stringent lock picking, bumping, and physical security standards.

    What happens if I lose my phone?
    Simply log into the Kevo mobile app on another smartphone or into the Kevo web portal and disable or delete your phone. You will need to use your Kevo fob or a standard key to unlock the door until you retrieve or replace your phone.

      eKey Types
      The eKeys you send to your friends are encrypted electronic keys which can be sent to anyone, anytime. With eKeys, you will be able to temporarily disable or permanently delete any eKey recipient, and they never expire and can be reassigned from one person to the next.
    • Owner eKey: When you set up your phone to work with the lock your phone will automatically receive the only owner eKey.
    • Admin eKey: Let others have full access to the lock, the lock's history, and its notifications in addition to being able to send, edit, or delete eKeys with the exception of the owner.
    • Anytime eKey: The eKeys you send out are able to lock or unlock the lock.

    Does the Kevo mobile app have to be open when I unlock my Kevo?
    After you launch and sign in to the Kevo mobile app for the first time, it will continue to run in the background of your phone. You don't have to open the app everytime you wish to unlock your door. When you touch the lock, it will be able to communicate with your phone even when it is locked and stored in your pocket or purse.

    Is Kevo compatible with Android and other smartphones?
    Kevo is compatible with Smartphones that support Bluetooth Smart Ready/Bluetooth 4.0 hardware and have an available Kevo mobile app. The Kevo app is currently available for iPhone 4s, 5, 5C, & 5S as well as the fifth generation iPod touch, third generation or higher iPad and iPad mini. Currently Android 4.3, as well as Blackberry 10.1, does not fully support all Bluetooth LE features required by Kevo, but we hope it will soon. When it does, we will be ready shortly thereafter. We have plans to support all possible mobile devices. In the meantime, you can still enjoy touch-to-open entry with a key fob and migrate to your Android device when available. Please sign up for email updates and we will send Android and other Smartphone updates as they become available.

    Have had for almost a year Review by timpj5
    Have had for almost a year

    I've had this lock installed on my back door for almost a year now. I don't have a garage and thought this would be a very easy and convenient method for getting in and out of the house with my hands full. Installation wasn't too difficult, but the casing was larger than my previous lock and I had to shave down some of the window trim on my door to make it fit.

    That aside, the functionality works... most of the time. I always have my phone on me and it almost always takes 2+ touches to lock or unlock. Additionally, the "ghost touches" which randomly lock the door when I'm entering and cause the deadbolt to slam into the door frame are extremely annoying.

    All in all, the product works... most of the time but if I had it to do over again, I would probably do something different. I don't have a Z-Wave controller or that would probably be my next try.

    Our family LOVES our Kevo. easily one of the best purchases we made. kids helped install. ~ 10 minutes, b/c 7 year old insisted on using the screwdriver. just went into existing deadbolt space, no new holes or anything, just a phillipshead. We send electronic keys to other friends and workers. we enable triple tap so last one out of house locks up whether thay have a phone or not my kids don't have a phone, but now I can idle in the driveway without worrying about locking front door. I read some other reviews and I'm bewildered. Our works like a charm. Husband has an Android, and Kevo told us that Android L will finally support Bluetooth Low Energy standard that Kevo uses. right now, he sends electronic keys via a browser. We love it.

    I have almost my entire home setup with Insteon and an ISY Controller but Insteon doesn't do much for door locks. Since I wanted to be able to enter and exit the garage and have the deadbolt locked but no have to use a key all the time I got this set. I must admit I thought it very cool to use my phone to open the door.

    Well, when it worked it was cool however not without issues.

    The physical install wasn't hard, removed existing lock and swapped in this one. Well that was great but if you tighten the screws the unit reacts to any little jiggle of the door like a touch. Call to customer service and I loosened the screws and it stopped randomly locking and unlocking. OK, no ghost. Next problem was pairing and teaching the device via the pair process which side of the door the key is on. This is a MAJOR task. Like 45 minute and a call to customer service. I got it to work...

    Now in use it does allow me in and out without the use of my physical key, when I have my phone in my hand or pocket near the door. Oh, touching the thing by mistake as you go in or out set the lock/unlock process in motion. If you have a 3-12 year old who just touches stuff as they pass by it can be exciting. To make my wife happy I'm taking this out and adding a Z-Wave Schlege that can integrate with the ISY. This Bluetooth product is not ready for prime time.

    As an owner of a Kevo I consider this to be a terrible product. The first one I purchased malfunctioned so badly locked and unlocked itself randomly, would not respond to touches, wouldn't calibrate, etc that they sent me another one. This one only locks and unlocks itself randomly and responds to the touch about 60-70% of the time. Unfortunately it is too late too get a refund now. Their QA team obviously didn't test it in enough of a variety of conditions.

    Also they updated the app so that location services is now always on for it which is a constant drain on your battery.

    It's coming off the front door and will be relegated to a door I rarely use. If I still use it maybe I won't still feel ask though I was robbed by Kevo.

    I really wanted this to work, but I just put the manual deadbolt back in and returned the unit. It is just not reliable enough.

    Out of 15 attempts to lock/unlock it worked on the first attempt 47% of the time with my iPhone 5s. The key fob was more reliable but not enough for the all important spouse approval. She loved not having to take her keys out of her purse/pocket but had to do so too many times over the course of the 2 weeks we have had the unit installed.

    Tech support was good - fast, knowledgeable, and understandable. The Kevo relies on a calibration process to determine if the phone/fob is in the house or outside so that it knows whether to unlock or not. The calibration process starts with removing the inside cover, pressing the calibration button with the device held up to the back of the lock, and following the prompts on the iPhone. You go outside, close the door, place the phone in your pocket and stand an extended arms length away from the lock and touch the lock three times. If the calibration fails which it did over and over again take notice of the numbers in the lower right hand corner of the screen - they represent the signal strength readings taken inside and outside. I was told they had to differ by more than 5 but even when I saw that difference calibration often failed.

    After many, many attempts with two iPhone 5s's and the key fob, Kwikset sent me a replacement lock but it worked exactly like the old one. I was eventually able to get it calibrated with the two iPhones and the fob and created a FileMaker database to track the Pass/Fail rate for my iPhone. I gave my spouse the fob since it seemed to work more reliably, but even so, after a week with it she asked for the manual deadbolt to be put back in.
