I couldn’t help myself.
As I have said before I take 15 minutes with it and give my first impression. Well It took me less than 15 minutes to install… My use case for the Wyze Lock Bolt is on Secondary Entry Doors. This install is on the back door of the house that goes into the garage. I already have the Wyze Lock on my primary entrance and would not replace it with this device.
Here’s what’s in the box, And yes my friends, that is a sticker with a backer border!!! But I am sad to inform you that there is no digital app badge
This device is SOLID. it just feels like it will hold up for a very long time.
The install instructions are well put together, having read through them, but the truth is I really didn’t use them having installed so many bolts and door knobs in my time. So if you are a DIYer it will be very easy. If you haven’t had many splinters or swollen thumbs from a hammer, the instructions will do you right. I will note that the dust box
is a super nice touch (I did not use it because it didn’t fit, but I will go back and make it fit when I replace the old gold knob making my fresh Wyze bolt lock look funky. I was just super excited to get this installed. For a lot of non-custom homes, it’s empty/hollow behind the strike plate and past the door frame, this will keep stuff from getting back there, so I highly encourage using it.
The hardest part in my opinion was the one cable that you had to manage to get the Interior Assemble onto the mount plate. Just use your finger and push it down the bottom left and gently press the exterior assembly up to the mount plate.
Setup was fast up to the point where you put in your finger print, but you don’t want this to be fast, take your time. Make sure your finger is clean and scan it from multiple angles (do not put your finger in the same spot every time.
Locking and Unlocking. The motor sounds solid, But its not loud, you hear it, then you hear it what I would call “Lock In” as in the Lock is saying “this thing isn’t getting twisted until I move it”.
Some single times (subject to doing 2 things at once, but I’m a good multitasker)
Unlock with Finger Print
Unlock with Keypad
Unlock with App
Lock with Keypad
Lock with App (Bluetooth is way faster than Wifi I have experienced on other locks, I mean it’s direct connect so obvious right?)
What I’ve got so far. If I find anything of note I will update. But please share your first impression and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask.
