Schlage Connect Camelot Touchscreen Deadbolt, BE468-2K Review

Schlage Connect Camelot Touchscreen Deadbolt Lock, BE468-2K  

Schlage BE468-2k Connect Camelot Touchscreen Deadbolt with Z-wave Technology



Satin nickel Schlage BE468-2k Connect Camelot is the 2017 release new model, feature-rich, and great quality deadbolt lock as part of the Schlage BE460 series with the sleek touch display and the advanced Z-wave technology for residential security. It has quite a stylish and modern appearance with a rather contemporary design and architecture of a geometric shape.

It comes with an additional bright brass key (so there are two keys, not just one) and should blend nicely with your home decor. The BE468-2k is quite a functional lock with the highest rated deadbolt as it includes a great range of home automation functions that you shall probably enjoy using. But to be able to have access to these automation technologies like the Nexia Bridge there is an extra fee you need to pay to purchase it as well as the monthly fees. This current 9.99 dollars monthly fee may seem like a lot at first for just controlling a lock, but Nexia is actually designed to control a variety of devices including the thermostats, motion detectors, and lights.

You can use the touchpad easily in the dark or dim light thanks to the handy LED backlighting. This greatly enhances your home security and meets a variety of security standards including the Grade1 ANSI. The Z-Wave technology is basically about letting you control the lock at a distance using your smartphone or computer as long as you’re online, so you can just lock and unlock remotely. And for that, you will need the Z-Wave Controller that you need to purchase separately. Other Z-Wave technology systems that this deadbolt lock is compatible with include Leviton, Staples Connect, Wink, SmartThings, Vera, Vivint, DSC, Alarm.com, Zipato, 2gig, Honeywell, Lowe’s Iris and ELK.

The Schlage Camelot not only has a beautiful design and offers enhanced security but is also very convenient to use as a functional deadbolt lock. It will need no wiring and can be installed with a number of regular door specifications. You do not have to use any keys or worry about carrying them, forgetting somewhere or losing them thanks to the convenient innovative and fingerprint resistant touch display that is contoured with a bumpy matte finish. Fingerprint resistance means it is protected against smudges or fingerprints and the numbers will be undetectable to those that are trying to get in, which means they simply can’t figure out your user code.

With the Auto-Lock function, if you leave the door unlocked for half a minute it will lock itself automatically (also after you get into the house) and you can certainly choose to disable this feature. When you enter your user pin into the touchscreen the motorized bolt will unlock and lock automatically, so you can just leave your key in your pocket. The Camelot includes an integrated alarm that will go off in case an intruder tries to break into your house. It comes with a regular knob which means you can continue using the lock when the unit runs out of battery. You can also choose to set it to the Vacation Mode and one can only get in with a key with all the user codes disabled. We do not recommend the Nexia Bridge if you will only be using for lock automation and other than that the Camelot is a great deadbolt lock overall. And you may certainly have a look at the other options through the links on the page and may want to keep an eye out for the other new models on the market.
