Ultion Smart has just been released. Is pretty pricey though - between £230-£260 depending on model
" z wave module" for the hack you must be close to the person operating the door, I would not worry about this because if someone is standing next to you at your front door with a laptop you would have big concerns why they are there, there are a few up to date video's on youtube about the hack! Heat for such a good deal
Genuine question. Does anyone know of one of these type of locks that has a key option as well. I live in a flat with only one door in and out..can’t take the risk of it not working or that’s me knackered
I think that was the first z wave module, that has been updated since then with better security. You could say someone stole your car the same way, or someone robbed you in the street, with no evidence to back it up. It would generate a crime number but you’re unlikely to get a pay out without supporting evidence. If you tried that and put your watches on eBay and were traced as part of the investigation, you’ll end up with a fraud conviction. I have one of these and it’s been great, but also have a house alarm and cctv. If set up 100% then these work great. The negative feedback ‘often’ comes from people who can’t/don’t have the patience to set them up correctly.

Yale Conexis L1 with free Yale 720p indoor Camera - Any Colour at Yale Store for £169.99£169.99£20718% off
Ordered thanks to this deal. Arrived and fitted myself today, worked first time. Guess I'll see how it holds up.
I have the front door type model My daughter is one for loosing here keys and we have had to replace them so about 3 years ago I got the one above. This one will go on a normal door lock. One of the differences ( i think) is there is no key on this so if something goes wrong you would have to get by another method. This has never happened but we do have a back door that we can get to and a hidden key. The unit does not need any mains/charging as a battery will last a good year and we use it constantly as we work from home so it gets used 20 times a day. We only use the keypad to get access but you can set up rfid so you can use it like a hotel room. There is no worry about being locked out and you can give someone a tag or code to get in (I think you can give a one time code for a delivery etc) so they can feed kitty. You can buy modules for the back ie smart home unlock, car type thing so you press it and the door wil unlock but we only use the keypad as that works fine. Only criticism is the screen is now all scratched up really bad. Dont know why. We did have a yale wireless alarm system and as many have said on here that was pants. We also have a ring device that we would also recommend. Guess if you had entrance and another door you could get a driver to leavce it just inside (by giving him a code) but as we work from home we have never really used it for that.
Can power it through mains? Ring bell works on battery too, or is that just backup?
You can open your lock via the app on your phone. You can send a virtual key to a neighbour or family member if needed etc. It new technology not sure how safe it is compared to a good old key.
No. They are for use with 3 point locks

All locks have flaws, but I personally will be sticking to a normal key and a decent core for the time being - like an Abloy Protec2.
And every regular door lock has been picked or forced. You are way more likely to encounter a thief who will smash your window than one who will 'hack' your lock. Just because a security expert can do it doesn't mean your average home-burglar is going to be able to. The real question to ask yourself is if having an expensive lock makes your house appear more desirable to a thief. Personally I would wager that most thieves wouldn't have a clue.
Plenty of smart locks have been hacked already, this isn't going to be any different.
I said could, it is possible Huge companies have been hacked so this is a Smart Lock. Anyone could just exploit a flaw which could be found at any time.
Where’s the proof?

I am having problems and seems expired for the items I wanted
Is this expired now or anyone had problems ?
thanks for such a detailed reply, really appreciate it.
Excellent, cant fault it, without jinxing myself haven't had a false alarm in years I've had the system 4-5 years, had to do a factory reset once the control unit was displaying an AC failure last week and a replacement PSU didn't solve it. looking more closely though there was a low battery on a PIR on the top of the list which wasnt displaying on the main screen. after replacing that and clearing the log absolutely fine I have many 'smart' bits of equipment in my house but have seen no need to replace the alarm. does an old school dial out when if it triggers, all you need, that's then my cue to check my cameras
I'd really like one of the smart locks. I've been thinking about it for a year or so. Does anyone have any experience with them? I've seen both good and bad reviews. I would need it to work with a few phones, but one review I saw suggested only 1 phone at a time?

Pretty rubbish products too in my experience. Alarms that require central server access which sometimes isn’t there. Door locks that only allow one module so either remote control or smart phone control or WiFi control whereas I want to have all three. They also only fit limited number of door lock types so beware if you buy them to check if they will fit yours.
Unfortunately still cheaper to buy on ebay for the most part.
