How To Install Kevo Smart Lock



One thing many consumers find when they begin to buy, install and link up connected devices in their smart home, is that the process can be difficult. It's not as turnkey as everyone hopes the process may be. However, we have found a connected device that's not just easy to setup and install—but includes interactive, simple instructions.

Kwikset, a manufacturer of smart locks, has some of the most effective instructions on setting-up their gadgets, and they're all housed right in the app. To demonstrate how intuitive its instructions are installing their smart lock, we assembled a step-by-step slide show, using Kwikset's Kevo 2nd Generation, which GearBrain believes is one of the best smart locks on the market. Clicking on each slide in order, will show you how easy it is to follow Kwikset's instructions for installing the smart lock, streamlining the process for consumers.

Smart locks are a nice addition to any home today. They can help you keep track of who is coming and going in your home—while also serving as a first stepping stone for building your smart home. Many consumers need some hand-holding on how connected devices, like smart locks, work and connect to other connected devices. GearBrain believes those manufacturers that take the time to make the setup and installation easier for consumers, are going to win more market share—and future buyers. Kwikset has done a nice job with simplifying its instructions for its smart locks, and GearBrain hopes other manufacturers of connected devices will follow this path, as more consumers begin to build their own smart homes.
