Kwikset Deadbolt with Home Connect Technology

Does anyone have experience with installing and using the Kwikset Door Hardware with wireless Home Connect Technology?

The demos i've seen from sales folks look great however i would also like the opinion from installers and users as well, especially with regard to battery life and the type of notification you receive if you lock fails to lock/unlock.

Thanks,

I have installed both the Schlage and the Kwikset versions. The products are simple to install.

The battery life is reasonable but I have found that the key override aspect is fundamental for back up.

You need good communication with your "always on" internet at home, to ensure remote capability.

It does not hold up to well in extreme weather environments. Wireless products are more prone to interference from wired products running through your property, hence why each devices communication to the "server" (home connect system) is vital.
