Pro 3 methods to lock/unlock the door allows flexibility
There are 3 ways to unlock the door. First is the old fashioned way with a key, second can be done through the backlit touchscreen panel by entering your code. Lastly, you can use your smartphone to unlock the door. Between these 3 options, you can choose which is most convenient for you, and each other member of your family.
Pro Personalized unlock codes are very configurable
You can give each user a specific code unique to them, and these codes can be configured to expire after a set amount of time, or only active during certain hours of the day. For example, if you had contractors doing some work in your house or any other temporary workers like house-sitters or dog walkers, you can give them a numeric code instead of a key.
You can store up to 30 codes at once, and codes can be anywhere from 4-8 digits (although all of the codes must be the same length).
Pro Very strong deadbolt
This door lock has earned the ANSI/BHMA Grade 1 rating. The grade 1 rating this deadbolt lock received is the highest available for home systems. In addition, there is an optional reinforcement plate to add to the strength of the lock. This helps prevent intruders from breaking down/kicking in the door.
Pro Easy installation
As long as you have a regularly sized door, the only tool you'll need is a screwdriver. Pairing with the app is very easy as well - just use the app to scan the code found on the front of the manual.
Pro All Homekit apps are supported
You can use the default Schlage Sense app, or if you prefer you can use the iDevices or Insteon+ apps.
Con Apple TV required for extended range
Without an Apple TV, you'll be limited to Bluetooth range. An Apple TV will allow you to control the door lock from anywhere that has an internet connection. This is still a secure connection however, as the Apple TV will check the ID of the incoming messages to be sure somebody else isn't trying to hack into your house.
Con Very bulky protrusion on the interior of the door
The portion of the lock that rests on the inside of your door is needlessly bulky. While not an eyesore from the outside, it's very noticeable from the inside that your door lock is massive.
Con All codes must be the same length
On the numberpad on the outside of the door you can enter a code to unlock the door. The problem is that each code has to be the same length, which can make it harder for some to remember.
