Not the cheapest the Connect has been, but I picked up the Encode and will return if a better BlackFriday deal posts on another site.

I wish they'd put the dang handlesets on sale at some point. I just want the entry door handle (already have an electronic deadbolt), and they NEVER discount them. Ditto for the Schlage bedroom/bathroom door levers because I want to rid our house of the ugly brass ones, but no one sells them discounted that I've found.

This deal is not as great at the one a few weeks ago for $179, but still pretty good if you're in the market for a smart lock solution. I've been using this for over 2 years, and it works great and integrates nicely with my wink hub.

Also available in the following colors:

Bright Brass Connect Smart Lock with Alarm and Georgian Door Knob Handleset [homedepot.com]

Aged Bronze Connect Smart Lock with Alarm and Accent Lever Handleset [homedepot.com]

Thanks! Im buying the connect and holding onto it and return it if something better comes up.

I'm not an expert but just want to let anyone thinking of getting the connect that you will need a zwave hub for the remote open function. Personally im going to run home assistant software under linux and get a usb dongle for a hub. It's a project Ive wanted to tackle for some time.

You can also pair this with the raise 6% off. Last I looked there were gift cards for $250 that were 1% off, and a CB site has 1% for home depot. If you want to go through all the trouble like I did, I ended up getting the Encode + Handleset for around $219 after all the CB and gift card discounts.

What was your reasoning for picking the connect over the encode? Just the connection differences (zwave vs wifi)?

I read reviews that said the encode (wifi) uses more battery. Thats a small issue compared to needing a hub with the connect, but since I was already planning to get a hub it didn't play into my considerations.
I also want to get into zwave and home automation so that helped me pick the connect. But honestly, I think the encode is a better (simpler) choice for most people who want remote unlock feature. Get the connect if you want to complicate your life like me Smilie
But I'll also add that I am not convinced on remote unlock. I think unlocking with your phone over bluetooth should be what most people get. But I could be very wrong on that!

Always use zwave over WiFi for home automation devices. Motorized deadbolts get less battery life than their turnknob keypad peers. They are also less tolerant of misaligned strike plates, which could be an issue in older homes.

Good to know. I am in the process of moving my house to a ring alarm. Sounds like I should cancel the order and get the connect instead.

Thanks for the tip! Never heard of Raise but managed to get $250 gift card for 6.7% off with the promo code. Received the codes in 8 minutes and they worked fine for purchasing the Encode.

They were also on sale in March for $179, I purchased 2 at the time. Anyone on the fence, I think this is a fairly regular deal of the day.
