The Yale deadbolts have been nothing but trouble, and I would like to return them. Specific issues include:
- “Back Door” key failed after 2 days and no longer works; the key simply spins without extending or retracting the bolt. The inside and electronic locks work fine.
- Frequently report “Failure” in Z-Wave status, regardless of distance for IQ Panel
- “Lock” and “Unlock” sometimes fail on both deadbolts
- Locks do not appear to synchronize their locked/unlocked state with the IQ Panel.
The latter three of these issues may all be Z-Wave signal quality issues, but the Back Door deadbolt (which fails more often) is only 10 feet from the IQ Panel, in the same room. The Front Door deadbolt is only 20-25 feet away, with only a single wall (with an open doorway) in between them.
Do you have a list of supported alternative hardware for the IQ Panel? I found a release saying there are a few Kwikset (912, 914 series) and Schlage (BE468) that are supported, and I’m interested in getting one of these instead.
