Inconsistent and can’t turn off some features
When I first purchased my Kēvo it was a convenience but over time the hassles have caused me to use it less and less. First the distance the phone needs to be is inconsistent. One time I will keep the phone in my back pocket and it will work fine. Other times I will have to hold the phone an inch from the lock for it to work.
Second, sometimes the app will say the lock is jammed, and the only way to get it to work again is by uninstalling the app and reinstalling it. This is a huge pain in the a**, especially when your in a rush and don’t have your keys because you relied on the app. Third, I linked the app to my Honeywell thermostat so that It will set the temperature automatically when I come and go. I have since turned this feature off. Or at least I try to. I have been trying to turn it off for about a year now and although I click “disable” and then save changes it still stays on. When I go back to the settings it still shows enabled. I have sent an email to kevo about this and never received a response. I’m currently looking at other locks to replace my kevo.
More Control over Guest Ekeys Needed
I’ve been using a Kevo 2nd Gen as I recently started hosting my home as a BnB while out of town. It performs okay but the problem is how the scheduling of ekeys works.
It’s impossible to start a scheduled key at a time on one day and continue access until a set time on a different day (e.g. 3pm Mon thru 12pm Fri). I have to send a anytime key and manually remember to activate and delete at the appropriate times. This seems like it would be an easy fix for the developers to add the options.
I also purchased the additional gateway for reliability in case a guest had issues getting in so that i could do it manually from anywhere. The Gateway works great although it has to be purchased separately.
Another issue I’ve noticed is in the History. It will show when the door is unlocked by a guest but not when locked.
Hopefully future updates can correct these issues. Besides that, i do like the appearance and remote monitoring of my door lock status.
Need notification when updates are made
This is a great app when it works. Today I got home from work (encumbered with all kinds of stuff)and it would not open my door. I dredged out my phone and opened the app and was greeted with a login page. What? I used the physical key to get in, set down all of my stuff and looked up the password so I could log in. Apparently Kēvo had updated the app. Why I had to log in again, I do not know. My suggestion is for Kēvo to text when there is an update that will require a login. Or not require a login.
