Kwikset Obsidian
Kwikset’s Obsidian is one of the slimmest and most striking locks on the market today. Even at less than an inch thick on the exterior, the Obsidian still offers numerous quality of life security features. It has a convenient one-touch locking button as well as an optional 30-second auto-locking feature for those times where you might forget to lock up. Multiple unsuccessful code entry attempts will disable the lock for 60 seconds and an anti-tampering alarm will sound when an intruder attempts to break into the lock itself. Equipped with a 30 user code capacity, all your family and friends can have their own unique 4 to 8 digit code. Codes can be set to work only during certain times of the day, perfect for babysitters, dog walkers, maintenance workers and more. Notifications can be set to alert you when codes are being used, and the audit trail keeps a record of lock access. The lock will alert you when batteries are running low, but if it does lose power a 9V battery can be used as a backup on the bottom of the lock.

Requires Home Connect or Z-Wave controller for wireless features

One of the few downsides to touchscreens are fingerprints, and using the same code day after day will reveal which numbers have been pressed. Kwikset’s answer to this is their patented SecureScreen technology. It will randomly generate two numbers you must press before entering your access code. This ensures more numbers are pressed, thus making it difficult for intruders to guess your code.

Customer Questions & Answers

  1. A

    This specific Kwikset lock does not appear on the combability list found here

    The Kwikset 910, 912, 914, and 916 models are compatible though. 

  2. A

    This model does not offer a manual key override but does feature a 9V battery emergency power tap to power the device long enough to gain entry in an instance where the batteries are completely drained. 

  3. Q What are the dimensions of this lock? answer now
    Asked by Susan on January 12, 2021 2:10 PM

    The outside unit is 2 25/32" (length) x 13/16" (width) x 3 7/32" (height).

    The interior portion is a bit larger at  2 11/16" (length) x 2 3/32" (width) x  5 3/4" (height).

  4. A

    Unfortunately, this model does not offer a feature where the lock will unlock based on your device location. The lock can be unlocked through the associated app for your Z-Wave controller. The proximity unlock feature is typically found in Bluetooth enabled locks such as the Ultraloq U-Bolt Pro.

  5. Q Can I lock my house remotely from my phone? answer now
    Asked by Janice on August 9, 2020 7:40 PM

    When connected to a Z-Wave controller, you will certainly have the ability to lock and unlock the door from your smartphone!

  6. A

    This lock does not have native scheduling features. However, if paired with a smart hub such as Vera, you are able to create scheduled scenes to lock and unlock the door automatically. 

  8. Q Can this go on an outside gate? answer now
    Asked by Paul Rigelhof on May 18, 2020 7:48 AM

    This model is not recommended for gate applications as the interior unit is not weatherproof. 

  9. Q Can you disable auto lock? Is there one that can do that? answer now
    Asked by Bonnie on November 8, 2018 2:17 PM

    Yes, you can turn the auto lock on or off through specific sequences at the keypad, but you must have administrator access to do so.
