"Wait for the kinks to be worked out."0.5 starson by Cuyazzie
Pros: None at all
Cons: Installation was not easy. Took about three hours to install. After it was installed it took almost an hour to even get the lock to set up. The unit kept timing out. Once installed, could not calibrate and use the unit.
Summary: I was really excited to receive this lock in the mail as I had preordered it from Amazon the first day I could. I brought it home and installed it right away, and that's where the trouble started. It took over three hours to install (part of that was not the product's fault, but still took three hours). Once it was installed it took another hour to set up the lock, and this isn't even the "calibration" process others have had trouble with. Every time I would attempt to set the lock up, it would time out or I would receive an error message. Once I got it set up I attempted to calibrate the lock. I was expecting to see flashing colors and rings around the lock as described in the instructions. i saw none of it. I could not get the lock to calibrate. Even after reading that another user had to try it 25 times before successfully being able to do it, I kept trying and trying. I could not get it done. Finally I had enough and removed the lock and installed the old lock back. Additionally, I was disappointed that the keys cost $1.99 per key and cannot be reused (you can't issue a key to someone, cancel it, and issue it to someone else). Also, during their pitch on The Shark Tank they talked about how the keys could be programmed such that someone would only have access on certain days during certain hours. Well that function is not currently available. This was a really important function for me. Maybe the lock will be able to do this with future software updates, but I didn't want to risk it at this point.
Overall it's a good concept and eventually I will have a bluetooth lock, but not this one. Expensive for what you get, hard to install, harder to set up the lock, and even harder to calibrate it. Like I said, wait for them to work out the kinks and add more functions.
