tl;dr: The negative reviewers probably couldn't tie their own shoelaces, and if you want to know why, read on.
Normally I do a pro's and con's review, but after seeing the 'top review' on this product being a disparaging review stemming from his lack of knowledge on install and usage (which was all in the manual and app), I figured I'd make a review to respond. Here are the top bullet points of the other negative reviews and the reality of them:

𝐑𝐄𝐀𝐋𝐈𝐓𝐘: This is a half truth. If you install the strike plate so it misaligns with the deadbolt, it'll be finnicky about wanting to lock. With a dumb deadbolt, you can force it with your fingers. You wouldn't want the motor to force the lock as it'd burn it out quickly. This is entirely avoided by performing a proper install to begin with, which in my case just meant using a small flathead and hammer to knock some of the wood away where the strike plate was going to sit before screwing it on. And then the bit about needing a 9V? The lock itself is powered by 4 AA's, and it warns you well in advance when the lock needs a battery swap. If you let it die, you'd really have to be negligent.

𝐑𝐄𝐀𝐋𝐈𝐓𝐘: This is just flat out wrong. Not only can you add individual family members (who can also each have their own unique passcodes), you can create guest and temporary passcodes.

𝐑𝐄𝐀𝐋𝐈𝐓𝐘: This is true, but while having proximity would be great, it's not secure. If you forget your phone in your house, your door will stay unlocked. Then what?

𝐑𝐄𝐀𝐋𝐈𝐓𝐘: The tailpiece is identical to the "dumb" deadbolt I replaced. The difference is that the Nest's tailpiece has some leeway where it's attached to the turn assembly BECAUSE YOU COULDN'T INSTALL IT OTHERWISE. This amount of give is purely for install purposes and doesn't detract to the "locking security" of the deadbolt. The only way to break it is trying to purposely break it off or if you improperly tried to slot it through the bolt assembly. I'm sorry but that's like complaining a butter knife has no durability after stepping on one end and lifting the other end with your arm.
Anyway. Hope this helps anyone looking to try this thing out. Maybe if some of the other reviewers read manual, they'd be sitting pretty right now, but y'know. The only difficulty I had was pairing the Nest Connect, and it was A-okay once I disconnected the Bluetooth headphones I was using during install.
I am roughly 8,000 miles away, in the middle of the ocean and my lock seems to be stuck in Privacy Mode. The iOS app seems to be fine, I can lock and unlock from the app, but no one's code works at the door. It gives the message as if Privacy mode is on. I can turn off from the app - still doesn't work. I had someone go into the house and turn privacy on then off then on then off again and test their code at the keypad - no joy. The keypad seems to lock out all codes. There is no one who can do a manual reset at home - beyond their skill level.
Now what - this is my biggest concern with these types of locks - getting locked out. I need for my sitter to be able to get in and out using her code. It worked until yesterday, roughly six weeks, no issues - now it seems failed.
Either the lock has partially failed, or some other issue - Yale and Nest troubleshooting guides have not helped. Battery is reported by app to be good.
If reliability is an issue it will have to come out - and be returned for a refund. But in the meantime the Nest x Yale lock is partially failed and not doing what it is supposed to do.
Solid. Easy to install in my door, maybe others would need more door modification. This lock fit my standard door. One recommendation is to make sure and do a reset to factory defaults before testing the installed lock. It has to be at default to for test. Another thing to watch is the depth the hole in the door frame to receive the bolt. Mine was about an eighth shallow and the test failed. A sharp wood chisel fixed it in minutes. Programming is easy. The Nest Connect connected to my network on first try. Nest app controls and monitors the lock - so far very reliable.
In summary, good product, does what they say it will do. Amazon delivery was fast, as usual, packaging was fine.
It is a wasted trip and one that I always have to explain to anyone who is using the lock.
I read other reviews and have seen the same comment, great lock ...... but.....
I suspect there is some great reason why this step is needed, but it escapes me.
Other than that I would give the lock a SIX star rating if I could.
Top reviews from other countries
The issue with this lock, however, is on the installation side.
First, the instructions are woefully inadequate.
Second, if the strike plate or deadbolt areas with your door aren't perfect you are going to have issues. Be prepared to have to shave wood away or add filler; or do as I did and spend 2 hours trying to get the lock to sit properly.
Third, once installed it kept saying the "deadbolt jammed", even though it wasn't. Turns out there are two screws, which if too "tight", will cause that glitch. Disassemble, loosen screws, reassemble, problem fixed. But for a product of this price, you don't expect such a ridiculous issue (and no mention of it in their installation guide... luckily reddit has a nest forum where people share info).
Most annoyingly is that nowhere do they tell you what troubles you might experience during the install and how long it may take. If you have no issues this install could take you all of 20 minutes. If you do have troubles, it could take hours and hours and a trip to the local hardware store (if you don't have time, be prepared to reinstall your old lock and revisit the installation when you have time).
The other negatives are it doesn't integrate at all with Alexa and it has no key hole. Both you know prior to buying it. But just be aware, if it malfunctions you'll need an alternative method for getting into your house.
In summary, great product with a very frustrating installation.
Update at the 3rd day of use:
Suddenly, the lock wen back ONLINE by itself! So, it went OFFLINE, then became ONLINE by itself without knowing why. I called Yale customer service, was told that 'Connection' is supported by Google Nest. It is a disappointment that a software company come up with such a connection issue.
In Summary, 1) the lock works fine, 2) connection has been stable after the first few days. I am now wondering if this sort of lock is built to last or not as my Wiser smart lock stopped working after 2 years of use.
