Compatible locks other than Kwikset and August

Compatible locks other than Kwikset and August

Local locksmiths have been very negative about Kwikset locks, citing cheap internals and unusual keyways.  They recommend other keypad locks, most of which run on Z-wave.

 

Are there other brands/products that work with Xfinity Security despite not being branded/approved by Xfinity?  Is the Xfinity system Zigbee?  Z-wave, Bluetooth?

 

Looking for a deadbolt of high quality that can support individual and time-controlled key codes, disarm the alarm, etc.

Re: Compatible locks other than Kwikset and August

It's just those two for now.

I have had the Kwikset for close to two years and have been very happy with it. Not sure if there are certain Kwikset locks that are better than others, but I have generally seen positive reviews... and was very happy that I could keep my existing keys (didn't have to get new keys for family members)
