Found 1st Jan
Cheapest around and cheapest I have seen it since Black Friday. A few bad reviews on amazon, but just installed this yesterday (only a few issues) and I have to say it's an awesome lock.

Note: John Lewis do price match Appliances Direct (they do have stores).

For sure. But only install issues which could have been my bad. But now up and running it is spot on.
Do I get it right? You don't need to carry a simple key, just a phone and a spare 9v battery for emergencies???
I dunno if I could go to work all day and trust this on the front door

Please could you elaborate?



had one before never worked best to stick to a normal one...
Have heat for the deal - thanks for sharing!

Personally I want one, however I would prefer to see a physical key backup - much like the way a car has it set up. I won an Echo dot in a raffle @ Christmas (eww I mentioned Christmas!) and have been adding extra physical actions to it - I don't think this can be added?
Any insurance issues?

Yes
These things are always nicer in theory than in practice. I work in Estates Management and previously have been a Facilities Manager for 3 very large FTSE100 firms (with some 15 yrs experience). Even the most expensive of these locking systems that I've come across (maglocks) always fail. I haven't tried this particular unit, but would have no faith in it personally. Stick to standard key lock! Not voting either way, but for the sake of a gadget don't compromise you're families safety and security.
I've had one on our front door for 4 months with zero issues

I hear you! To be fair the lock on the front door is probably the last point of entry (my parents suffered a break in - they simply kicked in the rear door panel - lost my inheritance!). I wouldn't compromise my physical lock with one of these (power failures always seem to happen when you rely on it most). A physical lock doesn't run out of batteries! I'm off on one again - I keep forgetting the is HotUKdeals!
Not quite the same lock, but we have a Yale electronic lock on our Yale composite front door - bleeper fobs, key in a code or physical key just in case. Been installed 6 years with zero issues - complicated CNC cut-out to accomodate, mind - professional installation and known as the "resident evil lock" as the voice sounds like the "Red Queen" in the films when it says " lock open", "securely locked" etc.

Does this one have a clutch on the door handle?
If thieves can relay signal from a carkey to start a car remotely then I fear this is no good either
If criminals can get into cars without keys using a hack, then this technology will only become a target. Avoid
If thieves want to get in then they'll probably smash the window.

If your inheritance was their rear door panel , don't think you lost much?
Im sure it probably would be a target for hacking via Bluetooth or RFID, which it both uses. I guess you could keep the RFID cards in a wallet with blocker, or store in a container wrapped in aluminium foil.

Thieves could also smash the handle to get to the cylinder lock itself, though this is anti bump, drill etc and looks like it would be difficult to snap too (so probably more secure than most people's locks with standard euro cylinders which can be snapped within a minute). Also, they have an inbuilt siren if they smash handle. And my Arlo cam facing door would alert me to any intruder in any case.

Agreed, would be much better if had a key back up in case one day it decides not to work. Though it has a two year warranty, so if it does decide to mess up I would get a replacement and have two other keyed doors to get in. And by then V2 might be out with (hopefully) key back up, so might get as replacement :). So don't mind testing out the tech now based on all these risks.

The question of security is a funny one. I could bump a cylinder lock in about 10 seconds. A 5 lever mortice would take me a little bit longer... maybe 3 minutes.

The handle is yes

I very much doubt it - any would be thief would probably use the sight of one as an indication of wealth and find an easier point of entry to the property. Having been a victim of crime myself I realise these "opportunists" will take the easiest point of entry - which turned out to be the back door. Also it appears that these thieves do not carry anything - think about it;if you are carrying the tools to aid in a break & entry you would have a much harder time explaining their possession than if you had empty pockets... Why carry "tools" that take time to use and instantly incriminate you versus just kicking in the door panel or smashing a window?
I'll stop here as I realise this is HotUKdeals
