Anyone use the Kwikset Kevo

So I am looking at the Kwikset Kevo Version2. Seems like it would be a good choice for the family.

But I havent be able to figure out if this will be able to work with HS.

Does anyone have experience with it?

Thanks

Has anyone tried this yet? I am looking at my locks as I rebuild my home and was considering the Kevo.

Any thoughts?

Kevo

I have two of the Kevo lock sets........

I am pretty disappointed with their performance. They are very spotty in recognizing any cell phone granted access to them..

They need constant re calibration to function.

kwickset

Note I have a kwikset lock that is a touch pad only and it is awesome and always works ...(as long as the battery is hot)....

This version I can recommend

I agree, the Kevo is hit or miss. I have version 1, not sure if version 2 works any better. We are an iPhone family and I recently upgraded to the iPhone 8+. Since upgrading the Kevo has failed to open only twice. For everyone else with iPhone 6s or 7, they are less than 50% success.

Kevo Plus

I just upgraded to the Kevo Plus recently (version 2). I have an iPhone X and my girlfriend has an iPhone 7 Plus. It is early yet, and I will update this post if the situation changes, but both have worked flawlessly with the lock so far. I hope I am not jinxing it by saying so.

I also added a Kevo Plus so I could lock and unlock the door from anywhere as well as with our Amazon Echos. This has worked very well so far also.

What I cannot do at the moment is integrate this into HomeSeer. I have spent a couple of hours trying to turn this (https://github.com/cseelye/pykevoplus) into a HomeSeer VB.net script, but so far I've not had a lot of luck (I was pretty handy with VB6 back in the day, but alas the world has moved on and I unfortunately have not). It's not "official" but I was wondering if perhaps someone would want to take a crack at creating a script or even a plugin with this?

I have a basic Kevo Plus plugin working and am planning to release it shortly. Let me know if you'd be willing to help test.

I'd love to help test this for you. I'd like to integrate the door locks into the nighttime routine that runs.
Thanks for working on this.
