Review about Kwikset 99420-001 by Customers

It was easy to replace an existing lock with the keypad/ blue tooth lock. Through the app you can assign codes or change/delete them.

Three i can open the lock with my phone via Bluetooth with the app. Moved and upgraded to the latest ring product.

  • My phone was not among the list of devices that the Aura App is compatible with.
  • You can re-key a Kwikset deadbolt lock to use your current keys if you already have more than two keys for it.
  • I could lock the garage door when I went in and out after installing the lock in less than 15 minutes.
  • After you download the app and set up your account, there were a few more steps to do, but I can appreciate the extra protection to secure my belongings since it’s guarding my house.
  • The features that make it amazing are that it looks fantastic, accepts up to 250 codes, can be disabled at any moment, and you can select certain hours and days for codes to operate.
