Deal DetailsLast Edited by MLmadness January 23, 2013 at 07:11 AM
This type of lock doesn't connect with wifi and it doesn't lock or unlock electonically. The way it works is that it has a latch on the front and back to open or close the deadbolt. On the inside you can open or close it at any time. On the outside it spins freely unless 1) It is locked in which case you need to type in the code to actuate the latch. 2) It is unlocked so you can press the "schlage" button, which will actuate the latch and you can lock it. You better know the code if you do that or else you will be locked out! The keys are backlit for convenience when it's dark. Because it doesn't actually move the deadbolt, the battery lasts a very long time. It has a master code so you can program unique access codes that you can give out to different people. That way you can remove one person without removing everyone else. In Texas, it seems like most of the garages are not attached to the house, which is the case with us. It's convenient to have these on the back door and garage door for easy access and easy locking. I've been waiting a while for the price to go down. I ordered an open box unit for the same price from warehouse deals a month ago so I was happy to see this price for a new one.
