One item in home security that doesn’t seem to be available are Patio door locks with key pads, auto lock and unlock or connectivity to a system. The closest option I found is this; [link removed]. But they never got backing and it’s not enough to just have a key pad. Now keep in mind this doesn’t exist. No one makes a patio door lock with a key pad that reuses the latch lock mechanism. Since Wyze is getting into the home security world with doors locks, I think the patio door lock would set Wyze apart from all others and complete the security of a typical home. Let me know if you have any questions. I’m happy to clarify.

@suv1, don’t forget to vote for your own #wishlist topic.
Would be a nice addition to the lock format. There are dumb keypad versions available in addition to the example above. The dumb versions range from $100 to $300 from what I see on Amazon. Would be nice to see a smart version at a good price range.
I need to take it back off and paint the spacer plate now to white to match the door. I used the existing internal components from the original slider Lock and just put the metal rod inside the Wyze lock turning part. Worked like a charm… Now if I could just get the Wyze lock to with with Google home Assistant, then that would have made this perfect
Do you have a step by step on how you did that?
Cool idea, does the auto lock work? I’m asking because the calibration only shows the process for regular doors, at an angle, instead of sliding doors.
You definitely inspired me to try this as well! Would love to see any updated pictures if you have them!
