Kwikset Smartkey review from Home Depot - Part 1

I've always dreamed of a keyless front door entry.

This is our current lock. I really like these sets, but... we've had some issues.

My boy needs to enter the house on his own at times, and hiding keys outdoors isn't very secure. And bringing them to school has resulted in them getting lost.

Then there's when we go camping. We need to leave keys for our neighbours that care for our pets in our absence.

And how about tradespeople? Ever leave a key hidden for them to use, later wishing you could re-key your locks 'just in case?'

How cool is it when you can review something you actually really really need? Ecstatic!

This set offers more than just a keyless entry though. The deadbolts have a SmartKey feature, which allows you to re-key your locks with new keys any time you wish.

I had no idea such a thing was even available. Did you?!

 Since I loved my current set, I simply chose a deadbolt that matched the finish of our current hardware. 
There are many different styles to mix and match with, so you can get the look and functionality that's right for you.

I just chose the keyless entry because it was best suited for our needs. We have a keypad on the garage door and it's been wonderful to allow neighbours in that need tools and such when we're not around.

So I'm going show you how to install our Kwikset Smartkey lock system and let you know what I think.

We can't wait! House keys, we are so breaking up with you!

Do you also have key issues?
Do you hide them or ?
