Whats in the box.
What tools do I need to install this lock?
You will need Ruler, Phillips Screwdriver to install Schlage Connect
What are the locks dimensions?
The Schlage Connect is 4.5 x 3 x 8 inches in size.
Any door size requirements?
If the door is thinner than 1³⁄₈”or thicker than 1³⁄₄”, then thelock will not fit properly on thedoor.
The Schlage Connect comes outfitted in two model types Zigbee and Z-Wave Plus and without its own dedicated app is deeply tied to connected systems to get the most functionality out of it.
If you don’t already have a subscription to a smart home security system like Alarm.com or have any interest in adding a hub and doing deeper integrations with your home (ie: unlock your house when the garage door opens.) then you will be left with a smart lock that does the basics (auto-lock, access codes) but not much more than that.
The installation is dead simple with just a Phillips screwdriver and taking about 15-25 minutes and (then an additional 20-30 minutes to pair the device with your smart home hub.)
One thing to look out for when purchasing is the integration differences between the Zigbee and Z-Wave version. For example the Z-Wave version supports Google Assistant while the Zigbee version does not.
Overall the Schlage Connect has won good reviews from its customers with its consistent reliability, integrations and easy install. An overall winner in our book.
