MiLocks ZWF-02BN door lock

This Z-Wave smart lock from MiLocks requires a Z-Wave hub in order to connect to your home network, but once that is set up it allows you to operate the lock remotely as well as keep track of when it is used. Through a home network hub you can even control your lock with voice assistants. We do recommend reinforcing the strikeplate in your doorframe, though the lock still performed poorly in our kick testing with the reinforced strike.


The MiLocks ZWF-02BN is part of the Door Lock test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, Door Lock models like the ZWF-02BN 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.
