Since there’s no physical key, what do you do if the motor in the Wyze Lock Bolt fails, or if there’s some other mechanical malfunction? Is there any option other than smashing it off your door with a hammer?
I know it’s unlikely, but I’m also old enough to know anything can break.
Electric motors rarely fail. But you can ask that question about anything…what if my refrigerator fails after I just filled it with food? What if my car fails and I’m miles from help? But in your case you could enter the house through the back door. Or use the Wyze lock version that still lets you use a key outside. Oh and, both replace your existing deadlock.
I agree, it’s not perfect for every situation, but it’s fine when you have an alternative entrance. As far as how you would lock the door in the unlikely event the lock motor fails: you’re removing an existing deadbolt in order to install this-- just put all the parts and at least one key in a box or bag in the closet, and it can be swapped back in a matter of minutes if you’re slightly handy or know anyone slightly handy.
