The Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt with Century Trim in Satin Nickel makes daily life easier and more convenient. Enter an access code on the touchscreen to unlock the door instead of searching your pockets for keys. Pair the lock with your smartphone over Bluetooth . Share access with trusted friends and family with just a few taps in the Schlage Sense app – no more keeping track of spare keys. The Schlage Sense lock is easy to install yourself in minutes. It’s battery operated so there’s no hardwiring required, and the lock will still accept access codes if the power goes out at home. Typical battery life with average use is about one year, and the low battery indicator reminds you weeks in advance to replace it. You can update the lock wirelessly through the app as new features are released, which means you never have to buy a new lock to take advantage of the latest capabilities. Add the Schlage Sense Wi-Fi Adapter (sold separately) to your home Wi-Fi network to lock/unlock from anywhere on Android smartphones, iPhone , iPad or iPod touch . Or, if you have an iPad /Apple TV connected to your home Wi-Fi network, you can control the lock from your iPhone as part of your HomeKit-enabled smart home.

Installing it took me about 5-10 minutes, and was very simple. I followed the video that comes on the iPhone app -- it was very helpful. The most important thing is NOT to try to move the lock until the lock has set itself up at the end of the installation. It doesn't turn easily until it's set up, and you shouldn't turn it at all.
The pairing process with the iPhone app is seamless and fast, and after that the app can control pretty much anything you want the lock to do.
Here's some really things about the lock (all of which are set in the iPhone app):
• It can sound an alarm if someone is trying to kick the down down (you need to turn on this feature, however). Normal bumping (even hard) against the door doesn't do anything in my experience. It takes a lot of force to make it alarm.
• You can set the lock to automatically lock after a time period of your choosing. That means that the door just always will stay locked (you need to close the door, of course).
• You can set the code length you want. If 4 digits isn't secure, you can choose any length of code you want -- from four to eight digits (eight digits is 100 million combinations). I love this feature because it makes the lock very secure. All codes need to be the same length.
• You can turn on or off a quick lock feature that allows you to just press the Schlage logo on the outside to lock the door without entering a code. Unlocking always requires a code, of course.
• You can view a log of every lock action so you can see when the lock was opened and closed (and by who if they used a code).
• You can add or delete codes for anyone you want quickly and easily, and those codes can be set for specific days and times. For example, if someone comes to walk your dog between 12 and 3 on weekdays, you can set the code to work only to work during the time they will walk the dog. That way they don't have access at night, for example.
The primary downside of this device is that it requires Apple devices to work well. That means that Android users aren't going to get anywhere near the features as iOS users. And it requires a recent AppleTV to work remotely, and as of now, Apple's implementation is flaky for remote operation. The nice thing is that you should be able to unlock your door just by asking Siri, but in my experience, that's flaky, too. It worked for a while, then stopped. Luckily, the app works really well when you're close to the locks (within about 20-30 feet).
Another issue is that if you want to invite other users to use the iOS app, they need to have an iCloud account enabled on their iPhone with the correct settings for passwords enabled. This is a little finicky if you don't know the procedure. I'm a technical person, and it only took about 5 minutes to figure it out.
In short, this is an amazing lock with a great iOS app. However, if you want to unlock the door remotely, you rely on Apple and the AppleTV, which are both flaky. This could change in the future, but right now don't plan on a good remote experience.
Other then those two issues I like the lock, it is nice looking, locks fast, and has a lot of features. The "Door open/close beep" doesn't work that well and the "forced entry alarm" doesn't appear to work at all. I turned the sensitivity up to the highest and began pushing and punching the door but the alarm never went off. Nevertheless, this is a new product and that can be fixed in a software update.
I would recommend this lock because its a very nice, functional lock and I'm sure the firmware updates will only improve it further. I will admit though, $250 is a little steep for what it does.
EDIT: I went into HomeKit settings on my iPhone and was able to add everyone in my household to it. So, the first phone paired essentially becomes the leader and then invited anyone else they would like to be able to open the door. They can also revoke their permissions at any time.
I like that Schlage allows up to 8 digit codes. I would like to see a timeout or alert function after X bad attempts, so that you get alerted or can delay someone trying to enter codes randomly.
I can see how some would have frustration with remote access and general HomeKit configuration due to the newness and incompleteness of Apple's solution. All of the issues that I've read above have resolutions, but are not immediately obvious.
A few things to keep in mind based on previous reviews.
1. The instructions for the Sense do state not to turn the thumbscrew until the battery is connected and you've tested to touchpad. That's when it figures out orientation. The thumbscrew will not turn in one of the directions prior to this.
2. Yes, an Apple TV is required to be in Bluetooth range of the lock for remote access. This is stated on Apple's HomeKit website, but not clearly enough. The AppleTV will work as a bridge between the Bluetooth lock and other Bluetooth HomeKit devices and WIFI for remote access. It does work, but there is a delay. The same is true when accessing the lock from another part of the house. It will be slow to connect if you aren't in Bluetooth range. Very slow.
3. It is HomeKit only. If you aren't ready for HomeKit or have an Android, buy the Connect. The Sense app doesn't even ask for a login, as its connecting directly to the HomeKit data on your device. And it works well with multiple Apple devices.
Issues with HomeKit sometimes need to be solved by resetting all HomeKit configuration data from the settings/privacy section of your device. Then waiting for iCloud Keychain synchronization before starting over. I had to do this while configuring the Sense, as my HomeKit data had become out of sync somehow. I reset the data, reconfigured the home, then added my wife's account and now all of our devices work together.
I'm only giving 4 stars, not due to the device itself, but because of the overall incompleteness of the HomeKit experience. As it matures, it will get better.
