Frustrating and unsafe. The auto-unlock feature is spotty at best. It often unlocks itself several minutes AFTER I've come in and locked it manually. That's unsafe because sometimes I'm in another room and don't realize it. It works correctly maybe 20% of the time. Once, while driving AWAY, it unlocked, and I had to drive back and go all the way back up to my apartment to lock it. Once that happened and when I got to the door and it FINALLY connected, it said it was locked after all!

Works pretty well! Sometimes the Bluetooth is finicky when it's not connected to the wifi but when it's connected to the wifi it works way better! There are some features that you can set up yourself. Like auto locking after 5 mins of it being unlocked. It's important to know how the use these features :) once you do it's easy safety for your home!

Overall, the app doesn't need to do much but what it can do does poorly. One major issue that I face everytime is that when I first load the app, the status of my first lock remains in connecting status indefinitely. But when I swipe to my second lock and back, both locks are updated without another network request. So it seems like the app itself isn't updating the interface correctly. Lastly, not having a battery indicator on the app for any of the locks is weird given it's the 4th generation.
