Once connected to your home network through a smart hub this smart lock allows you to operate it remotely and track its use. The lock itself also performed well in kick testing with the included strikeplate and is re-keyable.
The Kwikset SmartCode 888 ZW500 is part of the Door Lock
test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, Door Lock
models like the SmartCode 888 ZW500 are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
Kick-in as sold: Resistance to kick-in as sold is how well the lock survived increasingly forceful impacts using the hardware it comes with.
Kick-in reinforced: Kick-in reinforced is the same test using an aftermarket Box Strike in place of the included strike or, for surface-mount locks, 3-inch screws; models scoring Excellent as sold were not retested.
Drilling: Drilling shows how well the lock stood up to assaults with a drill.
