  • Today we're going to review this high-tech key-coded blue tooth smart lock.

  • Hopefully it's a bit more secure than the last lock we tested.

  • I'm going to show the installation on it too.

  • Huge thanks to LastPass for sponsoring this video.

  • Let's get started.

  • [Intro]

  • This residential door lock claims to be pretty intelligent, but today we're going to find

  • out how smart it is ourselves, with a little installation and, of course, a review from

  • the inside.

  • The first component out of the box, and the only portion on the outside of the door is

  • the key pad, which appears to have a solid metal construction and a couple internal Philips

  • head screws holding the locking mechanism in place.

  • The other chunk of the housing is what goes on the inside of the door, with the metal

  • mounting plate and 3 screws holding the guts to the metal exterior.

  • Now we don't have to worry much about this half of the lock because an intruder wouldn't

  • have access since it's inside of the door...but we're still going to take it apart anyway.

  • The guts come out cleanly enough.

  • We have a rubber button used to control some of the alarm programming and the 4 internal

  • double A batteries.

  • It's nice that everything is self-contained and no exterior power is needed.

  • It makes installing this lock a much more do-it-yourself project.

  • The large black circle in the center of the board is the alarm speaker.

  • So if the lock does feel itself being forced opened or jiggled, it can blast a shrill,

  • high-pitched car alarm sounding noise into the house.

  • So far, so good.

  • It seems secure.

  • There are a series of clips holding the motherboard to the plastic backing.

  • Once that's pulled away we see a bunch of white gears, and the electric motor in charge

  • of locking and unlocking the lock -whether it's from the correct key-code being entered,

  • or tirelessly with the integrated smart-home system or phone app, which we'll test out

  • in a second.

  • For reference, this is the little motor inside of the smart padlock that I opened up in a

  • previous video.

  • There's a big size difference.

  • The residential door lock is much larger and much more powerful.

  • I'll clip the motherboard back in and plop the components back into the solid metal housing

  • and get all the screws back in place.

  • I'll get the batteries installed, and you can see here how the 2 parts sandwich together

  • on either side of the door to make a working lock.

  • One last look inside the exterior portion of the lock, the one that's most vulnerable,

  • and we see that even under the plastic key pad it's just metal.

  • If an intruder were to rip off the electronic keypad portion, they would have no access

  • to the inside of the lockjust metal.

  • And as you can hear, the thing is pretty solid.

  • We'll see what happens when we install it.

  • Installation is pretty easy.

  • I'll just remove the 2 screws holding the old, unintelligent lock in place, and then

  • pull the deadbolt itself out from inside the door.

  • The new bolt can be adjusted depending on the size of the hole.

  • Mine needs to be fully extended, and the whole thing can be screwed into the door.

  • The front housing gets set into the door, and the solid metal plate gets placed on the

  • back, and the 2 beefy screws holding the parts together.

  • I made sure to pull the keypad display ribbon through the slot in the metal plate so I can

  • plug it into the computer guts on the backside of the door.

  • The computer guts and the alarm portion slide onto the metal plate easy enough.

  • There's a little hole for the locking mechanism, and then there are 2 screws, one large screw

  • in the center and a little guiding screw up at the top.

  • The speaker hole might look screw-able, but definitely don't stick anything in thereit

  • is a speaker and can be damaged.

  • Everything seems to be working so far.

  • To program the lock, there is a super important 6 digit number on the back side of the instructions,

  • as we as written inside of the lock, and that number is used to program the thing.

  • There is an app directly from the company dedicated to the operation of the lock, but

  • we'll talk about that in a second.

  • So from a hardware perspective, everything on this lock is working super smoothly.

  • It only took me about 10 minutes to install, and all of the coding and programming internally

  • in the lock is working great.

  • From a hardware perspective, huge thumbs up.

  • From a smart lock perspective...I'll get to that in a second.

  • The nice thing about this lock is that it can hold 30 different key-code combinations,

  • which is kind of like instead of having to remember a key every time you leave the house,

  • you just remember your simple password.

  • Works great for people who are running airbnb's, who have big families.

  • You can reset the internal codes whenever you want.

  • You could lose your keys...you won't lose your passwords.

  • Lately it seems like we need passwords for everything, whether it's the latest social

  • media apps, online platforms, or now your doorknob.

  • It's getting hard to remember every single one of them.

  • LastPass does have a solution for that.

  • It is a free app, I'll link it down in the video description, that can remember all of

  • your passwords for you.

  • If you're like most people, you probably have one super simple password for everything,

  • which is probably not the most secure way to do things.

  • LastPass has the ability to generate and remember for you, super long secure passwords.

  • And all of those passwords are encrypted, so only you can access them.

  • Not even LastPass employees can see what they are because of that encryption.

  • It is free to everyone, but for an extra 2 bucks a month you can get one gigabyte of

  • encrypted storage.

  • Only you can access and see those files that are stored in your drive.

  • It has been downloaded by millions of people, so you don't have to take my word for it.

  • Whether you just don't want to remember your passwords anymore, or you actually want the

  • secure long encrypted passwords, there's always that link right in the video description.

  • Huge thanks to LastPass for sponsoring this video.

  • Back to the lock though, from a smart lock perspective from me, it gets a massive thumbs

  • down.

  • Like I said before, everything on the lock works perfectly.

  • The hardware is great.

  • It can't be physically hacked from the outside.

  • But I was never able to connect my phone to the lock.

  • I'm currently using a Galaxy S8 and it would never connect, even after a master reset on

  • the lock itself, and I wasn't able to unlock the lock with my phone.

  • Which is part of the bare bone smart lock capabilities you would expect from this piece

  • of hardware.

  • At first I thought it was just me, or maybe my lock was defective, but after reading the

  • reviews, it is a widespread issue of this lock not being able to connect to cellphones.

  • It's a big deal.

  • And you would think that the lock would be smart all by itself, but if you wanted to

  • connect it to an Amazon Alexa, or like a smart-home automated system, you have to have something

  • called a hub which actually connects it via wi-fi.

  • So by itself, it's not smart at all.

  • And the thumbs down is the price.

  • I paid massive smart lock pricing and received something that has no smart lock capabilities.

  • So for a keypad lock, it's great.

  • For a smart lock, it's not so great.

  • I will continue my search for a smart lock better than this one.

  • If you have any questions, go ahead and leave them down in the comments.

  • And huge thanks to LastPass for sponsoring this video.

  • I will leave that free link in the video description.

  • And thanks a ton for watching.

  • I'll see you around.

Today we're going to review this high-tech key-coded blue tooth smart lock.
