You are guaranteed with a tight security with the Schlage lock. In fact, it is so tight that there are lock-out incidences that potential customers must be aware of. The common causes for such lock-outs are short battery hours and poor installation or maintenance.
The battery is the typical alkaline battery, designed to fit standard door prep. It runs for approximately 8,700 hours. While this generally appears quite a long period of battery life, instances happen when the battery runs short. It isn’t difficult to find a replacement because the lock simply uses the regular 4 A batteries. But you have to be mindful when the lock shows early signs of battery weakness such as faded onscreen texts or delayed responses.
Installation is easy as the product comes with a manual. The touchscreen pad and lock cylinder are about 1.37 to 1.75 inches, pretty much the regular thickness for most locks. There shouldn’t be any problem with the fitting. You may, however, request for assistance in installing. The warranty service also runs for a year in case the problems qualify for replacements.
A smart lock that is affordable, easy to install and maintain, and guarantees secure locking mechanism spells great value for money. The touch screen pad has a matte finish that protects against smudges and prints. So you need not worry about constantly cleaning the tool.
