Been looking for a half decent price on this lock, normally £200 most places, but with the code it's taking it down to £179.10 which is a nice saving

This has saved me a fortune in having to change my locks when my missus goes out galavanting. I now just change the code. Result!!

I wasn’t aware of a product like this being available. My first thoughts were is this secure? The brand gives me some confidence that it is.

Does anyone have any actual experience with this that they’d like to share?

Some not very good reviews on Amazon... amazon.co.uk/Yal…JKV

A mechanical keypad might be a better bet not as snazzy but about £35.99... amazon.co.uk/dp/…h=1

It works with Bluetooth, that'll be safe then.

Completely different type of lock. The Conexis works on doors with a euro cylinder.

Yeah cool being locked out because your phone is out of charge

Thanks for the deal op.

I have to say that this smart lock really should have physical key access as a backup. A mix of both a basic door lock and a smart lock. What if the door lock fails? A backup would be sensible.

I'm all for a smart home but don't think i would use a smart lock just yet. My smartthings can sometimes go down (sensors mainly so not serious). Reliability on smart home products aren't 100% (for me anyway).

I know this Yale lock doesn't have Echo or Google Home support. But if you're looking to buy a smartlock that has support for either then make sure you can't activate the lock outside by using your voice. For example, don't have the echo or home sitting beside an open window.

Sorry for rambling on but thought I'd throw in some info.

Quite like the look of this, but not sure if it would look out of place for my front door:

What are people's opinion on this?

I agree on the basis of things going down and also there should be some physical way of getting in too. Regarding the Echo support it's there now (with additional stuff) but is working, unsure of Google Home though

Yale has a smart lock called Keyfree connected with physical keys, which is now disappeared from their website. It's far too expensive consider the limited functionality it provides and how difficult the software is to use.

There are plenty international competitors including major brands likes Samsung, which come with biometric/fingerprint scanner, password, fob and software/remote authentication, at a much reasonable price. It's just they don't fit on UPVC doors, which is a shame.

My two cents, having done lots of research to upgrading to smart locks, is that apart from the Yale Conexis there is no other option atm in the UK.

Alternative are the Yale keypads or from another company, but they should be used as secondary locks.

IMO it is better to wait another 6 months to 12 months to see what new smart locks are launched in the UK. There's alot of good options in the US, and inevitably some will make it over or there will be a homegrown copycat.
