Faulty product

Kwikset - Faulty product
Kwikset - Faulty product
This company has terrible customer support. I got a new kwikset lock about 4-5 months ago. The lock was faulty and the electrical locking device want work. I called two months ago for a replacement under the kwikset warranty and still have not received my replacement lock via mail. I am not pleased with the customer service provided by this company. I also argue other buyers not to buy these locks due to poor customer service relations and poor warranty service provided by the company.

User's recommendation: Do not buy kwikset products.

Halo Stopped Working

I purchased a Halo from a local Home Depot. After about a month, the lock stopped working with the app and Alexa, displaying the error message "Jammed". Called the support and spoke to Taylor who asked me to get a new pack of batteries even though the battery shows 60%. He said this is the troubleshooting process. I know this is a hardware problem and not a battery or app problem. Do not waste your money and buy this piece of junk. I called Home Depot and was asked to call the manufacturer for the warranty replacement. Unfortunately, the manufacturer has awfully bad technical support and doesn't know what they are doing.

User's recommendation: Do NOT purchase Halo lock. It does not work.

I am very surprised that Kwikset has such a poor design. I purchased a Kwikset Juno entry *** and deadbolt and installed it today. If your door opens from the left from the inside, the key will have to be inserted upside down in the doorknob. If the *** is paired with...

Electronic lock stopped working after 2 years

After about two years of working, our kwikset electronic lock stopped working. We reset the lock to factory settings, followed trouble shooting suggestions, contacted customer service, with no avail. The quality is not there and the company must know so that they provide only 1 year of warranty. I personally will try a different brand going forward. Very disappointed in the quality. :(

User's recommendation: Try a brand of lock that has a longer warranty and better reviews than Kwikset if you want an electronic lock.

To write a true positive review ....

The dead bolt broke to the garage side door ....and I could not get it out ..... I called kwikset customer service they put on a technician and we still couldn't remove the broken deadbolt ...they told me to hire a locksmith and they would reimburse me ... I live in San Jose ca ... and it's expensive to hire anyone to do anything .... the locksmith took out the broken deadbolt and installed the new one kwikset sent me .. it was $205.00 dollars for the house call .... I'm here to say .. Kwikset sent me a new deadbolt and reimbursed me for the locksmith fee ....I've used kwikset in my house for years and buy this brand for the price and the lifetime warranty ....they were true to their word ....

User's recommendation: I'm happy with this company and their products.

just want to thank the company

Product is too hard to install

I have purchased my LAST kwikset lock. Over the years I have purchased 100's of kwikset products. It seems every time I purchase something from them it get more complicated. No body has time to spend trying to figure them out every time they buy one. There ate several other companies that would like by business. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Connection issue with smartcode 916

Our lock is not the kind of lock we wanted when we purchased. It works with smartphone but does not work when not in range. We purchased an Aura lock when we wanted a Halo.

User's recommendation: Check to make sure you know which lock will work with smartphone when you are not within range of your smart lock.
