Schlage Camelot Touchscreen Deadbolt

Kitchen & Household
Hi there, Ry Crist from CNET here. And today, we're looking at the Schlage Camelot Touchscreen Deadbolt. This is the Deadbolt that retails for $431, but don't worry you're not gonna pay anything close to that. It goes on Amazon and in some stores like Home Depot for as low as $162. Just looking at the lock, it's a pretty nice looking unit. It's got this kind of old-fashioned look. There's also this Schlage Century Touchscreen Deadbolt and that's the exact same price, has all the exact same features, just looks a little more modern. If you wanted to lock, all you have to do is press the Schlage button here and automatically lock. You could also, of course, use a key or turn the bolt on the inside just like a standard lock. But if you wanted to unlock it, you could also use a code and we have a very creative code of 1,2,3,4 totally fit right. But that will unlock it automatically and you can program up to 30 different codes. The Deadbolt also has a built-in alarm you can customize in terms of sensitivity and what sets it up. You can have an alarm that only goes off of the doors being broken down or alarm that goes off if somebody's trying to pick the lock or even just a very soft 2-beep alarm that will go off whenever the door is open and close. You can keep track if people coming in and out. And testing it out, we found out that all the codes in the alarms worked very well and the best part is you can program it all directly on the touchscreen. It's a very simple to do. You can do it right here. That's great. Another huge selling point for the Schlage Camelot Touchscreen Deadbolt and a Century Deadbolt too is that they're compatible with the Nexia Home Intelligence home automation system and that's a great system that we also reviewed to check it out. But what it does is, it hooks your deadbolt into your home network and allows you to control it remotely and that's a great thing. You can use your phone, you can use the computer, their website, their app, whatever you want to unlock the deadbolt to program codes, to do all sorts of things. And there's some added functionality as well. If you use Nexia, you can also program temporarily codes. You can make a code that will only work on Sundays or only work for 15 minutes on one day and then it's over, won't ever work again. And that's a nice thing if you have like a pet sitter or someone checking on your house while you're away on vacation. You can give them that option and know that they're not gonna be able to keep that code and come back later. Now, if you make a unique code for everybody who might wanna use the door, you can track all of that on the website. You can see a timeline of when people came and where. Maybe that's a little invasion of privacy, but it's a good information for the paranoid homeowner. Without Nexia, it's a normal lock. But it's still has great touchpad functionality. It's programmable. It has the alarm and it's grade one certified lock. It's a very high quality lock. If you wanna upgrade your lock and you want something secure and kind of cool, I think this is a great option. So, if that sounds like you, give the Schlage Camelot Touchscreen Deadbolt a chance. For CNET, I'm Ry Crist. Thanks for watching.
