  • Lock recommendations?

    I currently have a Schlage (BE469) lock on my front door, which has been flaky in terms of z-wave reliability for the past few years (not just with HomeSeer, but with prior controllers as well). I'm looking to replace the (non-smart) locks on the back doors on my home, so I wonder what else is out there in terms of controllable locks that are reliable and work well with HomeSeer.

    Couple of requirements/goals:
    1. I'd prefer the simplicity of a lever lock (without a deadbolt). My back doors are french doors with a lot of glass. It's far easier to smash the glass on the door to gain access than it is to try to bypass a deadbolt. My philosophy is that locks are only a deterrent and just need to not be the weakest link in security.
    2. I don't care for the noisy locking behavior of the Schlage deadbolt. Ideally a level lock won't require motors moving a bolt to allow access.
    3. I hope to synchronize all the locks with the same set of codes via HomeSeer.
    What locks do you use and recommend?

    Maybe you can start by checking the newer ones ?( more chance to be z-wave plus).

    Go this lever one for my second entrance.

    It was hard to get access to lever lock here in Canada.

    I preferred the look of this one ...but couldn't find it :

      The Yale Real Living Touchscreen Lever Lock looks nice, but it's not clear to me how the lever works. I seem to recall reading somewhere that there is a geared mechanism that engages and disengages the ability of the outside lever to open the door (and as a result, there is a short delay after entering a code before the lever is usable), but I can't find any video showing the operation.

      Does anyone have this lock that could comment?
