Look, we’re not going to beat around the bush here: the Kwikset Kevo (2nd Gen) Touch-to-Open Bluetooth Smart Lock is one of the best locks on the planet. It’s been our favorite for quite some time thanks to a comprehensive feature set, a great design, and best-in-class reliability. You can control it from your phone, or you can simply walk up and touch your lock to open it when you get home as long as you have your phone on you, or one of the fobs Kwikset offers. Another cool feature you might not know about: even though it comes with a new key, Kwikset’s SmartKey feature lets you rekey the lock in about 5 seconds with your old key so you don’t even need to have new copies made! It’s a terrific lock, and it’s discounted right now on Amazon for a limited time.
