First off, the locks are marketed as being WiFi, but instead they're Bluetooth. Everything you need to do with them as far as setting them up, changing their codes, or resetting the locks because it incorrectly registers that the deadbolt was jammed when it wasn't, all demands Bluetooth. This means that you are required to be within range (~30ft) from the device. The only function over WiFi is (un)locking and receiving the notifications for such. Unfortunately, those have now been very delayed.

Hello Levi Taylor, We’re Here to Help! The Halo requires Wi-Fi to remotely lock/unlock, receive notifications, and manage users whereas Bluetooth is required for pairing, firmware updates, and the lock settings. For one-on-one troubleshooting support, please call us at 1-800-327-5625. Thank you, Kwikset

This app has been aggravating to say the least. I have a condo in the mountains, about 4 hours drive from home. I love being in control of the different codes as I had to change one to keep someone out that had their own code to get in. After MANY phone calls and costing me extra money to get someone else to update it for me, they seem to have finally fixed one problem but still have other problems. I give visitors passcodes of their phone number but some phone numbers, the app doesn't accept. If I had left this review a year ago, it would have been a one star. If they fix a couple more problems, it would be a 5 star.

I agree with most of the bad reviews on here. Had the lock system over a year and done multiple firmware updates as the came up. The lock doesnt hook to wifi like it should and bluetooth range is a short range. The app needs a lot of work the app processes everything very very slow and you make changes that alot of time fail to processed. I wouldn't waist my time or money for this lock if you havent bought or set up already.
