So I purchased the Eufy Smartlock Touch with WiFi during the presale offered and the installation went pretty smoothly with a couple of individual problems that I’ll go over.
1.) I didn’t measure the spacer. Turns out I didn’t need it in there as it made the keypad side tweak just a bit. When measuring it looked like it needed it. If yours doesn’t fit exact or to your liking simply remove the spacer.
2.) Had to bore out the deadbolt hole a little wider. Not sure if the door I have isn’t standard deadbolt size but it needed to be I think 7/8".
Once all of that was finished the installation went quick I’d say ten minutes or less.
To all the negative reviews I’ve seen being published about the fingerprint being the selling point and it failing miserably…
No idea why everyone is publishing that. I have only been using the product for a week but have YET to have a fingerprint error or problem when using the correct print. I have tried to access it with my other hand and other fingers and errors will occur so it’s not a false positive every time I’ve accessed. But really unsure on why so many publications are scoring it low for this reason.
Setting up the WiFi bridge/extender was easy as well. Note: you will get a connection error when you test it if your phone has a VPN turned on… oops.
Unboxing: 10/10. Each box is organized and numbered so you know exactly what step comes next. I always forget to go through the installation video in the app first. I used the manual because I’m old school and it worked out just fine.
Installation: 10/10 easy installation for most people (my situation called for a couple of weird unique obstacles). If you lock in your two long bolts to secure both sides to each other and it doesn’t fit right, try removing the spacer. Super easy test and you’ll be happy both sides are perfectly flush.
Programming and usage: 10/10. Extremely simple setup that walks you through each step. No bugs or errors thus far in week 1. Code works 10/10 attempts. Fingerprint 10/10 attempts. Phone access: 10/10 attempts. One small thing, you need to be pretty close to your door if you don’t have the WiFi bridge or WiFi version for you to be able to open the lock with your phone.
Look/Aesthetics: 10/10. This thing is clean. It makes my ghetto garage door look like it’s housing something top secret. I’m really happy it’s rated IP65 because rain sometimes gets under the overhang on that side of our house.
Overall: 10/10. Easy to setup, looks great, works great. Will update in a month/few months/year.
If you have any questions feel free to reply! Would love to answer any that I can and make your installation as easy as it was for me!
Aplogies for the pictures. The forum won’t let me post the picture of the mounting plate or deadbolt side install…
