  3. One less key to have with me.

    Barbara (verified owner)

    I love the smart key aspect of this. I had bought the other brand for my son and he can’t change the keys to match his other locks. Installation was pretty easy. The programing instructions were not as clear as they could be but i got through it. I have not programmed the auto lock yet. Im not sure i need that feature. I’ll probably be buying another one for my husbands shop. I’m a 68 year old woman and if i can install it you can too! 😂

  4. Excellent all around!

    cslago (verified owner)

    Works with Vivint. Best price I could find. Shipped fast. Received in mint condition. Product worked flawlessly. Can’t complain. Just wish the website was better. It needs a lot of work, but trust me, from someone paranoid who researches the crap out of everything and everyone, you won’t be disappointed.

  5. Know what you are buying

    Keith (verified owner)

    This product works great. It was easy to install. We have Kwikset locks in our new home. I have my lock connected through my Wink Hub 2 and can lock and unlock the door and see its status. SmartKey allows your existing Kwikset key to be used with the new lock. I’d buy the lock again, but if this lock had the capability to see which codes locked and unlocked the door, that would be nice. Would be even greater if codes could be set remotely.

Customer Questions & Answers

  1. A

    Unfortunately it does not appear that the Kwikset 916 can change the volume of the keypad.

  2. A

    The Kwikset SmartCode 916 uses 4 AA batteries in a battery pack installed on the interior portion of the unit. You can open the battery pack to replace the batteries. If you need a new battery pack you would need to purchase one by contacting [email protected]

  3. Q How do I change the passcode? answer now
    Asked by Manny on October 1, 2021 8:35 AM

    Follow the below to enroll a new access code on the Smartcode 916:
    1.) Make sure the door is Open. Press the Program button once.

    2.) On the keypad, press the checkmark once. Enter a new user code between 4 and 8 digits. Up to 30 codes can be enrolled at once.
    3.) Press the Lock button once.
    4.) A checkmark symbol with one beep indicates that the code has been successfully enrolled. Three beeps mean that the code may already be enrolled or that the lock has reached its 30 code capacity.

    2.) On the keypad, press the checkmark once. Then press the lock symbol once.

    5.) Re-enter the existing user code to be deleted.

  4. Q How can you identify a pre-installed Kwikset smart code lock? answer now
    Asked by Latanya on January 6, 2021 10:04 PM

    This lock will typically have a label on the backplate of the unit that has the serial number and the model listed. Otherwise, the best method would be to take a picture of the front and back of the lock so that we can identify it this way.

  5. A

    If the lock is paired to a smart hub or service that supports mobile access, such as Vera, then you can certainly control the lock from any location!

  6. Q Is the 916 compatible with Alexa and the Alexa App? answer now
    Asked by Denise on June 12, 2020 3:07 PM

    Yes, this model is compatible with Alexa when paired with a smart home hub such as Vera. 

  7. Q Is this lock compatible with Kevo? answer now
    Asked by Brian on February 20, 2020 5:55 PM

    The Kwikset Kevo is a separate lock model and offers a different feature set compared to the SmartCode 916 model. The two units do not connect with each other. 

  8. Q Will the 916 model work with Ring doorbell system? answer now
    Asked by JR on February 12, 2020 11:10 AM

    Yes, this lock is compatible with the Ring Alarm system!

  9. A

    The 916 is a Z-Wave enabled unit and is meant to pair with your existing smart hub such as Vera, Samsung SmartThings, or Wink. Without a smart hub, you will not have an active connection to the lock for remote control.  

  10. A

    Standalone, this lock does not have the ability to keep a log of who entered the door at a certain time. If this unit is paired to a smart hub such as Vera or SmartThings, these hubs usually have an audit capability that will be able to display this information.
