Best Locks for C4


Recommended Posts

I am looking to put zigbee locks in a new rental. The home owners wants locks that they can change codes remotely through C4. What are the pros and cons of the different locks using zigbee? I have installed schlage and yale before without problems. How is kwikset? Thank you for your help!

I use Kwisket, no real complaints.  My two cents, get ones that have native drivers versus cloud/3rd party drivers.  I also like Kwikset for the "smart key" feature as it is easy to get all locks using the same key without a locksmith.  I think Baldwin may have that feature too but not on the line that is C4 compatible.

Does C4 have its own zigbee card? It is my understanding that a zigbee device should be able to connect to C4 without needing a special "C4 zigbee card".

If I get a Kwikset or Baldwin C4-compatible lock, which app do I use to manage the lock? Such as provisioning new users, changing codes, etc? Is this in the C4 app or the native manufacturer app? Can I still use the manufacturer app to lock & unlock or only via C4 app?

Kwikset vs Baldwin? People seem to recommend Kwikset, but wife like Baldwin. Any actual downsides to the latter?

If you didn't get the right zigbee cards and need them.  Typically, member @DanlTman has them.
