Kevo – Your Phone Is Now Your Key
*** This app works with the Kevo smart lock made by Kwikset & Weiser ***
With Kevo, your Smartphone is now your key.
No more fumbling for your keys. Keep your phone in your pocket or purse and just touch the lock to open.
Additionally, Kevo offers:
* Kevo Mobile App

* Bluetooth 4.0 Smart Technology
* Kevo Keychain Fob
Through patent-pending touch-to-open technology developed by UniKey Technologies, Inc., a user’s smartphone acts as an electronic key (eKey) that can lock or unlock the door when the user touches the smart lock. Kevo responds to touch only if the user is authorized and has an authorized mobile device within range.
KEVO MOBILE APP
The app is used for initial setup, sending, disabling and deleting eKeys, viewing history of lock activity, and setting up other configurable features and options of the smart lock. The Kevo App runs in the background on your device, there is no need to open the app to enter your home.
Controlling access to the home is now more convenient than ever. eKeys can be sent to family, friends and guests with Kevo-compatible smartphones. Several levels of permissions for eKeys exist inside the Kevo mobile app. The Owner and Admin eKey types have the authorization to send, disable and delete eKeys. Other eKey types have only locking and unlocking capabilities.
The Kevo mobile app can send users smartphone notifications when the door is locked or unlocked by eKey holders. The user can choose to receive the system’s default notifications or set up custom notifications to monitor a specific eKey holder’s interaction with the lock during a specified time frame.
A history of the lock’s activity may be viewed through the Kevo mobile app or web portal. The history log provides the times and dates that eKeys were sent and received as well as when eKey holders locked and unlocked the door.
Audio/Visual Indicators: Kevo features visual and optional audio indicators that communicate smart lock activity and battery status to the user.
KEVO WEB PORTAL
Mobile app users can also access their accounts through the Kevo web portal on a computer or mobile device. The user can send, disable and delete eKeys through the portal and delete a lost or stolen smartphone from the Kevo system.
Kevo provides multiple levels of advanced security and is continually reviewed by industry leading independent security experts.
INSIDE VS OUTSIDE POSITIONING TECHNOLOGY
Kevo also includes UniKey’s patent-pending intelligent positioning technology that detects whether an authorized user is inside or outside of the home before granting access to help prevent unauthorized entry.
BLUETOOTH 4.0 SMART TECHNOLOGY
Bluetooth 4.0 is more intelligent than previous generations, addressing the demands of today’s mobile devices while consuming minimal battery power.
Kevo is compatible with smartphones that support Bluetooth Smart Ready/Bluetooth 4.0 and have the Kevo mobile app installed. The app is currently available for iPhone® 4S and 5, as well as the fifth generation iPod® touch, third generation or higher iPad® and iPad mini.
KEVO KEYCHAIN FOB
The Kevo fob is an active Bluetooth Smart device that provides the same touch-to-open convenience as an authorized smartphone. The fob that comes with the deadbolt is pre-enrolled with the lock so no additional setup is required. The Kevo fob battery is replaceable, and additional fobs will be available for purchase.

Even easier to install than expected
This new lock is even better than I had expected it to be. The install was very easy for me, a non-technical single mom wrangling This new lock is even better than I had expected it to be. The install was very easy for me, a non-technical single mom wrangling 2 little boys that wanted to "help" me get this set up. Unbelievable. It worked on the first try.
After having this installed for a few days, I'm getting incredibly spoiled based on the ease of use. I can unlock my door by touching the lock (while balancing on a far-too-narrow step with a purse, laptop bag, kids backpack, and several bags of groceries) without fumbling for my keys. It gets the little ones and I inside, out of the cold, in a snap. It's rare that products work better in real life than they do in commercials. And THAT is why I'm even taking the time to write a review. This thing is so sweet! …

Best Lock for my door.
The lock is much better than I expected. I looked at the videos to install it and I did it in 10 minutes. Send the keys to all of The lock is much better than I expected. I looked at the videos to install it and I did it in 10 minutes. Send the keys to all of my sons, maid, assistant and will send to my family coming to visit. In Miami you need many keys for the guess and instead of asking for the keys back, only one click will do it. My sons love it!!! They want to install it in their homes. I know what to give for birthdays now.
I have a vacation home, for sure I will have one of this locks in that house also. The fact that lets me know every time someone opens the door is fantastic for that house. When they leave I do not have to worry about the keys or duplicates.
The help I got when I needed more keys was superb.
I see this product is going to be in a lot of homes, like apple's phones. …

Proud Member of the Kevo Club
So, I knew that I wanted to get a smart lock. I am really glad that I ended up getting this one... It took me MAYBE 10 minutes to So, I knew that I wanted to get a smart lock. I am really glad that I ended up getting this one... It took me MAYBE 10 minutes to install. The instructions were extremely straightforward.
First off, the SmartKey function is super easy. It takes literally 15 seconds to change the lock from the keys that are included to the current set of Kwikset keys you are already using. That was awesome- saved me a trip from the locksmith or having to carry around two set of keys.
Then, I just had to set up the lock from my phone. 20 seconds later, I'm done. Super easy to follow guide on your phone's screen, super easy "calibration" settings... The calibration is so that the lock knows whether you are outside or inside. A random person can't just touch the lock and have it open when your phone is sitting close to the door- that is a feature that really sets my mind at ease... and it was a big selling point on this lock.
Essentially, that is the entire install. The included fob is already set up, great for someone who doesn't have an iPhone or iPod touch.
After all of this, I sat down on the couch and invited my friends and family to my lock. They already had keys to our home, but half of the time would forget them... or lose them. Now I know who comes over and WHEN! We are going out of town next week. A friend is bringing in our mail/packages... I'll know if and when he does... PEACE OF MIND!
Another pro of the Kevo- We have been thinking of renting out one of guest rooms on AirBNB... invite someone to the lock for the weekend, remove access when they leave... EASY AS PIE. Now you don't have to worry about them keeping or losing the key...
One thing I wanted to change was that it beeped when the door locked/unlocked. After 30 seconds of inspecting the lock, there is a switch that disables it. I can't wait for Google/Android to finally support Bluetooth 4.0 Some of my friends do not have iPhones. When Google finally supports Bluetooth 4.0, this lock will be perfect.... until then, I will just buy an extra fob or two.
Great lock. Buy it, you won't regret it... …

Limited and overpriced!
Just installed this lock. This does not connect to your wi-fi network and CANNOT be locked/unlocked remotely. This is a HUGE def Just installed this lock. This does not connect to your wi-fi network and CANNOT be locked/unlocked remotely. This is a HUGE deficiency and makes the product enormously overpriced for what it does. This is only "automated" if you're standing in front of it. Very disappointing!! Where is the technology to justify this price??!!
You can email an "ekey" to another user, but they need to have a smartphone, download app, accept ekey, etc, etc, etc. - and gives them access to your house until you delete the ekey. What if i just want to let in the repairman or maid remotely when I'm not home? This is ridiculous! The technology for this is readily available. This should not be on the Apple site as a home automation product! …
