Major app flaw! NO HISTORY FOR KEY FOB OR MANUAL KEY ENTRY OR EXIT! I bought this thinking that I would be able to name the fobs and be able to see (in the history section of the app) detailed info on who and when the door was unlocked and locked, but this is not possible, as of now it only shows you details on eKeys linked with a phone. Major disappointment! Upgrading to Kevo Plus for $70 is a little extreme for only being able to remotely lock/unlock from anywhere with a cellular connection. My opinion this should have been included in the original purchase, even so, with the plus gateway still no feature to see all key history! Needs geolocation in core location the Bluetooth only feature drains the battery incredibly fast. I will say this though, when talk to customer support they did say "they are looking into adding these features", so I'll be patiently waiting to update my review.
I give the lock itself 5 stars. Set up and installation was easy. I did have to contact customer support (which took about a hour just to get someone on the phone) for a locking issue during installation but they were very helpful and walked me threw step by step to fix the problem. The lock works as advertised, it very convenient and easy, and nice to be able to send eKeys without having to hand over your physical key to someone.
Good, but could be better.
If they let me do half stars I'd give 3.5. Works good, sometimes it locks itself before you get in the house so you have to unlock it before closing the door and manually lock it back after entering. Other times it doesn't lock behind me at all and I have to lock it manually or with the app or it will stay unlocked. Works good if you don't take for granted that it will be perfect - it won't, so just check behind yourself to make sure and you'll be fine. Also, they are just using the exact same logo as the band 'the germs' that have been around forever. Every time I see the logo I think of the germs and always will, since they had it first. A note on another review I saw... It isn't homeKIT compatible yet, but I don't have home kit and the app DID let us name our phones/fobs and keep track of who entered when, as well as allowing us to only allow limited windows of entry for certain individuals (like if you air bnb or have a cleaning service).
I was a little unsure when I first purchased this product because I'm so used to the old fashioned key and lock, but since I purchased it has worked flawlessly and as advertised. I do wish the Bluetooth signal was a little stronger so that I can lock it from the other side of the house, but I am able to check it while in bed and operate from there.
Over all great product not sure why all the negative reviews, it sounds like a lot of people have theirs set up on proximity feature.
I would like to purchase the gateway and premium but from what I have read the platform is unreliable for knowing when the door is actually locked.
Nice to not have to fumble for my keys with my hands full while trying to get in my house.
Keep up the good work and hopefully soon you will have a wifi Bluetooth all in one package.
