I call their customer service and, after flogging their automated menu system, get to a live person who tells me that "the lock needs to be recalibrated" or some such stuff. She sends me a video that shows howto do this. It involves holding the lock a certain way and turning the lock knob to the left until you hear a sound. I do this but no joy. I call back and another person tells me, "force it to the left. Don't worry. If you break it, we'ss send you a new one." So I force it and VOILA! I can now install the lock. It turns out the the lock is set up for left-hand doors and must be recalibrated for right-hand doors. Inasmuch as the universe is made up of 50% left-hand and 50% right-hand doors, would't you think that they would at least mention this in the installation videos? You might think so, but you would be wrong. So two hours of my time wasted on a project that should take 15 minutes at most.
So I go to connect this second lock to the Connect bridge and find out that the bridge can only handle one lock at a time. So, even though the locks are within 15 feet of each other and the bridge is midway, you must have a second bridge. It their defense, this is mentioned in the fine print about the bridge, but it is such a dumb limitation that it never occurred to me. Well, now I have just one of my two locks accessible from the web.
But wait, it get's better.
Now comes the time to hook this thing up to Alexa. It turns out that there are 2 Alexa skills for these devices. One with a Red logo and one with a Black logo. The black one is newer and somewhere it says that this is the preferred skill. I load the skill and follow the directions and it says to use the Alexa Smart Things menu to discover the locks. No workee. Mess with this for an hour, still no workee. At this point, you might ask why I chose the black skill instead of the Res skill. The answer is that the Red skill requires you to say "Alexa, ask August to lock the front door" and the black one allows you to say "Alexa, lock the front door."
After messing around for an hour, I decide to load the Red skill. The Red skill is capable of discovering the lock itself and amazingly, it works. So for laughs I go and try the Black skill again and it now works. It turns out that if you allow the Red skill to "discover" the locks, the Black skill will then be aware of them. So you might think that the issue is solved. But you would be wrong.
It turns out the to LOCK to door, you must use the Red skill, since the lock function is not supported by the Black skill. So you cannot say "Alexa, unlock the front door." You must say "Alexa, ask August to unlock the front door." Oh yeah. "Alexa, tell August to unlock.. " or "Alexa, have August unlock... " will not work. It must be "Alexa, ASK...." Lame.
Oh and because the locks cannot be discovered by the Alexa Smart Things code, there is no way to incorporate it into ALexa scenes or other such routines.
I suppose it is possible the these locks might be discoverable by other bridges, since they are allegedly Z-Wave based, but I don't feel like wasting any more of my time on Earth figuring this out. Life it too short.
TLDR: The bluetooth lock functionality works fine. Everything else is half-baked at best.
You don't need to change the outside of the lock, which is a very big plus. Nobody who hasn't been inside your house will know you have one. There is no reason for anyone to try to hack it.
The sensor to determine if the door is closed is a big plus. That way you know if you are locking an open door remotely. It could probably be hooked up to an alarm system, but I haven't tried it.
Alexa can lock the locks directly, but not (yet) through a Smartthings scene or routine (even though it goes through SmartThings to lock locks directly if that makes sense (it doesn't)). I assume that this will be fixed by Amazon at some point. Alexa can't unlock the door at all, which is a security feature.
Overall, the lock is bigger than I pictured it being (think Echo Dot on your door). The size and weight of the lock gives it a nice heft when you turn it manually. It is pricey, but in my case my wife doesn't lock doors before going to bed, and I wanted something that could lock the doors automatically. That is priceless.
The iPhone app works, but I don't care for it much.
