Comment:

The Lockly Secure Pro Deadbolt Edition is the latest smartlock from Lockly. It boasts 5 ways to unlock your door while being more secure than its competitors. This lock is actually more of bundle of their current Secure model paired with their Wi-Fi Hub. The Secure Pro brings this bundle together – and saves you about $30 in the process. I swapped my 1st gen Kevo out for the Lockly to see how I would like it, and after a few weeks I will not be going back to the Kevo. The Lockly is here to stay.

Design

From the looks department the Secure Pro certainly looks and feels premium. My Secure Pro Deadbolt has the Venetian Bronze finish, which looks fantastic. The lock comes with 2, Type 97 6 pin keys – slightly more secure than standard 5 pin keys. The front keypad display blends nicely with the outer housing and has a nice fit/finish. The display itself is plenty bright and clear enough to see even in bright daylight. It is certainly responsive enough for my tastes. The display is resistive (like your smartphone), so you might have to pull off your gloves in the winter time if you are punching in a code. The code display has 4 circles, each with 3 numbers, displaying 0-9. This means 2 numbers will be repeated in the pattern, and the pattern shifts/jumbles after each code entry. This makes you lock secure because no one can reasonable peak over your shoulder to figure out what numbers you pressed. This means nothing though if your keycode is easy to guess – I’m talking to you 1234 or 1111 etc. code users.

The fingerprint sensor is located on the right side of the lock. The lock can store up to 99 prints. I scanned all of my fingers, since I never know which hand or finger will be free. I was very excited about the fingerprint reader because I have small kids. Remembering a code or carrying a key is difficult to impossible to rely on right now. Unfortunately I couldn’t get good scans on their fingers to get them registered with the lock. In the manual it states that the fingerprint reader is designed for users age 12 and up due to the size of their fingers and how much your print changes as a little kid. Not a big deal, but I am kind of bummed on this one.

The outer body of the Secure Pro is hefty and feels very well built. The lock comes with 2 options to mount – using double sided tape or drilling another hole in your door and adding a support anchor. I went with the tape for now, and unless I have issues that’s what I’m going to stick with. The finish really is quite nice and matches well with the Kwikset knob I bought to go with it. The interior portion of the lock is a fairly benign looking box. It has the same finish as the exterior, but this portion of the lock is made of plastic making the texture feel different. The knob to lock/unlock turns easily, and there is a switch to disable the front keypad if you don’t want that option available.

The lock connects with Bluetooth directly to your device or over a cloud connect when paired with the Wi-Fi hub. Unfortunately for me I was unable to connect my phone to the lock via BT. I have an LG V20 running Android 8.0. My phone has no problem connecting to other BT devices, just the lock. I was able to connect to the lock with an old ASUS Android tablet I had, and soon I had the lock setup how I wanted. Once it was connected to the Wi-Fi hub I could connect my phone via the cloud to the lock. The BT issue could be app related or some oddball hardware interaction. Either way, not a dealbreaker since I have the cloud connection, and I will replace my phone in the near future. I couldn’t connect my phone to my Kevo either (not a supported device), so it’s not an unfamiliar issue to me.

Features

There are a couple of features that I haven’t already mentioned. First of all is the auto locking feature. By default, the deadbolt locks itself 30 seconds after unlocking. In the app this can be adjusted up to 5 min or off. I set mine to 5 min, but I usually lock up right as I’m leaving. The lock the door from the outside, just tap at or swipe across the screen.

Through the app you are presented with a whole list of settings and status messages. If you install the door location sensor the app can tell you if the door is open/closed and locked/unlocked. Without the position sensor you would only know the status of the lock.

The Secure Pro comes with a few extra features over its non-Pro brother. This is mainly due to the inclusion of the Wi-Fi hub. The hub allows remote monitoring and control of the lock from anywhere. Like the position sensor mentioned above, you can access this data through the cloud app. With the hub you can also use Google Assistant or Alexa to ask about the status of the lock or control it. If you disable auto locking, the voice control can be really useful if you are off in your house and need to lock/unlock.

Even with all of the access redundancies, you can still find yourself left outside if the unit’s battery dies. As long as you can grab a 9V battery you can touch it to the contacts on the underside of the lock body to jump start it and get you inside with your choice of access. I will probably not need this since I would always have the keys, but would be useful for renters or guests who don’t have the keys available. This may not be a widely used feature, but it shows their design team was really trying to cover all of their bases.

Interactions

As far as day to day use goes, I almost exclusively use the fingerprint reader to unlock. The reader is very responsive, and I have only had issues when my hands are wet or dirty. Once they are dry/clean then it unlocks right away. It’s almost as sensitive as the reader on the back of my phone. I use the code when my kids are there so they can eventually learn it. I have unlocked over the internet 1 time, which was super useful in that instance. I could have given out the code or generated a guest code, but unlocking it myself was easier since I was already getting into the app. I have unlocked/locked the door using my google assistant. My house isn’t really big enough to use this, but I can see this being quite useful in a large house. To unlock, I have to provide a pin code to my Google before it will send the command. That keeps someone from shouting outside your house to tell a Google Home device to unlock the door.

Thoughts

The first thing I found odd about the Lockly Deadbolt was the use of the Type 97 keys. I initially thought they looked bigger than usual (I was right – 6 pin vs 5 pin). When I went to get a new front doorknob to match the Secure Pro’s finish, I was unable to buy a knob or handle that used Type 97 keys. The only ones that did were commercial style handles that are in no way meant for residential front doors or large (and pricey) handle/pull sets that can’t be used with my door or the Secure Pro. I am now resigned to carrying 2 keys on my keychain, whereas before I had 1 key for my whole house. This is truly a first world problem, but nonetheless still an annoyance.

Installation was pretty easy for me. I just got done replacing all of the knobs inside my house, and I’ve replaced and fiddled with deadbolts plenty of times. With that being said, follow the instructions. I knew pretty well was I was doing an I still followed along just in case. There are a couple of areas where you will be glad you did – torque bar position and battery installation procedure.

Once you sync a BT phone or device to the lock, you have to use the connected device to handle all of the fingerprints, passcodes, etc. Prior to syncing you could enter passcodes and fingerprints using the touchscreen and the program button on the inside portion of the lock. I would suggest pairing a device just to get the most benefit out of your lock, but you can certainly use it with a paired device.

Using the position sensor was tricky for me. My door sits further in the pocket and I have trim running around the threshold. This presented a problem for me since the sensors couldn’t really line up due to the door depth issue. I decided to use the leftover double sided tape to build up the door mounted sensor to match the stationary sensor mounted to the trim. Not the most elegant solution, but it works for now. I will make something better in the future.

When I contacted Lockly support about my phone issue, they were awesome. They really put in a lot of effort helping me troubleshoot, and even went as far as sending out another lock to rule out a hardware issue with that first lock. Customer service can make or break a new product, especially in the IoT world, and here Lockly did a superb job for me.

Overview

The Lockly Secure Pro is a truly great smartlock. It has 5 ways of allowing you access to your home all while keeping them secure. Even with my phone issues, I am very happy with the lock. It’s a robust design that seems to be built for long term use. The breadth of features is excellent, and really has something for everyone. The use cases for this lock are numerous from personal use, to rentals, to large family households, and so on.

Comment:

I received a latch edition to review and while it didn’t fit my front door perfectly, I enjoyed it so much I had to have one for my front entry door so I purchased the Satin Nickel Deadbolt edition.

Some key distinctions between Lockly Secure versions, they are all compatible with the new Wi-Fi Hub, but the Secure is the base model with keypad and physical key. Plus adds fingerprint scanner. Pro has fingerprint and also adds the Wi-Fi hub. While its great Lockly made the Wi-Fi hub backward compatible with all 3 units, if buying new the Pro edition is the way to go without a doubt.

So Lockly Secure locks with the Wi-Fi hub can control your lock at least 5 different ways, all of which are important but the two methods that are real game changers are the finger print reader and the remote/smart home controls enabled with the Wi-Fi hub. The fingerprint reader is the best method of entry for day-to-day usage but the remote access and lock/unlock is great in a pinch or emergency for guests, visitors and family members.

Overall I think the deadbolt unit is the easier model to use and works great with existing hardware, but it does have some flaws detailed below:

1) If you leave your door ajar, after 30 seconds with auto-lock the bolt will extend even if the door isn’t closed, meaning you need to manually close the bolt to close the door. It would be nice if the Wi-Fi door sensor prevented this from happening.

2) The inside door housing is not satin nickel it is plastic, unlike the latch edition. It doesn’t feel cheap, but its not as premium as the latch edition.

3) Hardware is not universal. The deadbolt fit better than the latch edition which left holes everywhere, but its not going to be perfect for everyone. Make sure to check your hardware. The deadbolt fits perfect with my Schlage hardware.

4) Fingerprint reader is a problem for left in-swinging doors since it is close to the jamb.

5) Fingerprint reader is not as forgiving as iPhone touch ID. I had to register my index finger twice to get some shifted imprints to register.

Still, my wife and I love this device and its easily one of our most appreciated tech home upgrades!!! The only real limitations are which door you want to protect with Lockly and whether or not it fits the existing holes in your door.

Installation was simple, about 15 minutes using the manual rather than Bilt app and another 10 minutes to enable everything in the Lockly app. I only needed Phillips head screwdriver but a flathead may be useful as well to remove existing hardware.

While it is expensive, the functionality and convenience it enables is well worth the increment in price.

It amazed me with how easy it was to install out of the box. I really only used a Phillips head screwdriver and a pocket knife to install this. I thought it would take much more time to physically install plus setup via the app but again I was mistaken. The app was easy to use for setup and I was impressed. The finish of this is also one of my favorite things about this smart deadbolt. I feel like this is probably one of the most secure smart home devices. The fingerprint reader is useful for a quick entry, the included keys are also there for saving you when your batteries die out. I feel this device is a sleek and stylish way to keep up in this high tech society.

Comment:

The product was packaged well and the physical install instructions and stickers helped you understand everything that was happening. As with any first versions of software, I ran into software glitches during activation that required a factory reset. but it was not bad enough to call up Lockly and complain. I am not a huge fan of the beeping coming from lock component, which serves an initial purpose but is annoying when doing normal functions. Finger print registration took a bit to get going, but works fine afterwards. I liked how you can use the app to program everything and you have a wifi or blue tooth option. I love the override feature that allow you to use it like a dumb lock for any reason. I feel the product will continue to improve as it was clear they made a lot of nice considerations in the design. Perhaps they could redesign the software to remove the small glitches and automate some tasks at the factory without compromise to the security features. I’ve installed other smart locks and this one is slightly better and more advanced.
