Z-Wave Electronic Door Lock - NO LOGO
Add Z-Wave® functionality to your home security system using this Z-Wave Electronic Door Lock from Monoprice!
Z-Wave is a low power mesh networking communications technology that allows Z-Wave enabled devices to communicate with each other and to distribute Z-Wave messages throughout to network. This deadbolt lock is a Security Enabled device and must be used with a Security Enabled Z-Wave Controller to utilize all of the product features. In addition to allowing operation using different electronic codes, the lock monitors and logs the time and identities of the users who lock or unlock the device. You can even allow specific users access only during specific periods of time.
This door lock comes with an installation template and two door keys. You will need four AA batteries (not included) to power the door lock.

Hardware installation is straightforward despite marginally useful instructions. I only had a 2" hole saw (directions specify 2-1/8") which worked fine, but required me to carve out a very small section where the deadbolt spring contacted the door hinge side of the hole and caused the deadbolt to stick in the retracted position. Once I had enough room carved out, the lock worked mechanically as expected.
Software for this device used with a ST hub is not so straightforward.
I tested combinations of 2 device handlers:
1. Z-Wave Lock (device type that my ST V2 hub assigned),
2. Custom Z-Wave Lock (by yracine)
along with 2 Smart Apps:
1. Enable User Codes (by Nick Skeba),
2. User Lock Manager (by ethayer)
The only reliable combination I got was the Device Handler "Z-Wave Lock" and the Smart App "User Lock Manager".
The above combination ONLY adds the ability to authorize user codes so that the lock's keypad can be used for entry. The "User Lock Manager" has much more functionality built in however, none of it works with this lock. You CANNOT do the following: obtain battery status, know which code was used for entry, or revoke an entry codethe only way to revoke an entry code is to disassociate the lock, re-associate and authorize all the codes again.
If this lock had a new device handler specific to SmarThings, it could easily be a 5 star product.
CONS: Limited functionality with SmartThings
PROS: Was quickly recognized by my VeraLite. Seems sturdy.
CONS: Installation guide could've been more detailed. A bad picture with lack of description is not helpful.
The locks paired immediately with my Vera Lite. This was my first experience with the Vera so I was glad everything went smoothly. Was able to program in our pin codes and open and close the locks remotely. I purchased these before we closed on the house so I had some time to get familiar with them. As a previous reviewer noted you do need a z-wave controller to program them.
Installation was straightforward and quick. I had installed Schlage keypad locks (non z-wave) at our previous residence so I was familiar with how these types of locks install. As noted by another reviewer the port to plug in the cable is a little tough to find, especially if you are trying to do it while installing the lock. Familiarize yourself with its location beforehand. There is a plate that is installed and I thought I would need to drill holes in the door to mount the lock, but the plate hold the faceplate on, then the back gets screwed to the plate. No problems on my doors with fit, I even used the existing bolt mechanism from the deadbolt I removed.
The keypad part of the lock is quite elegant looking in my opinion. As a said before I had Schlage locks and those always had a fortress kind of feel. The photos of the lock show the front and back as the same size. The back as expected was about 6 inches tall and fairly thick, it houses all the stuff to make it work. The front is about 4 inches tall, fairly narrow, and very thin. I was surprised how nice it looks. In my opinion it is probably the best looking z-wave lock out there.
My one complaint is with the locking knob on the inside of the door. The lock can be set up for a left or right opening door via a switch. I have two locks. One is on a left opening door, and one on a right. Because the knob is not modifiable, on one door when locked the knob is vertical, and on the other it is horizontal, so it makes it hard at a glance to tell locked from unlocked depending on the door. This design quirk is the only reason I don't rate it a full 10.
Very happy with the locks. If you are looking to get into z-wave automation these are hard to beat.
PROS: Paired easily with my Vera Lite
CONS: Knob is not reversible.
PROS: nice looking lock. smooth operation, easy to change batteries, comes with name brand batteries.
CONS: have to get the zwave hub to change and manage the codes. Smartthings works real well and so does Vera
PROS: Nothing yet
CONS: I can't get anything to work with my wink Hub
PROS: - Easy install
- Looks nice
CONS: - Extremely loud buzzer
- Cannot be programmed without Z-wave
PROS: Good price.
Seems solid enough for a normal home front door. I wouldn't use this in a state prison or on a bank vault, but considering I have a window in my door if someone wants in they are getting in.
CONS: Instructions: Here's some advice - the exterior wire molex connector connects back behind the board. The cutout in the instruction give you no idea where to look. My finished carpenter couldn't find it using the instructions, and it took me some time struggling to figure out where it hooks in.
For the door I put it in, it's a nice smooth throw, so no problems with motor grinding. The servo motor is rather loud, and the beeping is REALLY loud. I will probably take it apart and find the speaker and put some tape over it.
Our door stuff is brass, so having a silver door lock doesn't exactly look pretty.
PROS: All the zwave stuff works with a VeraLite
Not terribly expensive
Works as advertised
CONS: Loud beeping
Only comes in one color
PROS: Affordable, easy to install.
CONS: Like others mentioned, the wire connector picture needs to be redone or clarified. It's behind the PCB and not the obvious multi-pin connector that's directly visible. A little plasticky and the inside part of the housing did not sit flush for my install.
