Siri controls

With HomeKit, you'll be able to control your lock using Siri. Just ask her to lock or unlock the door, and she'll take care of it.

Lock exterior

You'll also be able to unlock the door by punching in a four-digit code. Or you could, y'know, use a key.

The backside

The interior half of the lock houses the  electronics, the battery, and the motor that turns the lock.

A bit bulky

It takes up a good deal of real estate on the door, so heads up.

App homescreen

After installing your lock, you'll pair it with HomeKit using the free Schlage app for iOS devices. Here's the home screen -- just tap on the deadbolt to lock or unlock it.

User management

Programming user-specific codes is a cinch, and it's easy to add scheduled access, too. With user-specific codes, you'll be able to see who's coming in from the app's home screen.

Price point

The Schlage Sense Bluetooth Deadbolt goes on sale this November for $229. That's pricey, but also more or less on par with what we've seen from most other smart locks thus far, including August and the Kwikset Kevo. Be sure to read our full review to see how much sense Schlage makes of HomeKit.
