I am looking for a recommendation on a Keyless Z-Wave lock that has a Mode in which I cam make it always Unlocked. I will be renting my own home out as a vacation rental. I have five bedrooms and there is one bedroom in the house that I will use for storage unless there are above 10 guests.

I currently have a Yale Real Living Key Free Touchscreen Deadbolt with Z-Wave on the front and back door. I most likely would prefer to purchase a lock from a different manufacturer as the guest will be given a code for the Yale front and back door locks, so using a different brand will help them to understand that they do not have access to this room.

I have a SmartThings Hub and I'm using a SmartApp from rboyapps called the "Lock Multi User Management with Unlock Notifications, Advanced Scheduling and Automatic Lock/Unlock" app. It allows me to remotely create guest codes which is necessary since many times I will be on vacation when I need to assign new codes to guests. I would like the new lock to also be compatible with the rboyapps app since it seems to work very well if anyone also uses rboyapps for their locks. I believe rboyapps does works with all the popular brands if you have a recommendation but do not use rboyapps.

I really don't see the need for a different brand if the code is different. Anyhow, I really like Schlage Z-wave locks.

Hi Thomas,

You should be able to set your Yale lock to always off using the following settings (configure on touch panel or through Z-Wave):

Step 1: Disable auto-relock (z-wave parameter #2, value 0x00)
This prevents the lock from re-locking automatically once it has been opened.

Step 2: Disable one-touch locking (z-wave parameter #11, value 0x00)
This prevents accidental deployment of the latch if a user activates the touch panel

Hope it works out for you. More smart home tips on our website https://www.wirefree.com.au.

Hi, greetings from China. I think our fingerprint door lock can meet your needs. You can keep the lock always unlocked under 'unlocking mode' . There are 4 access modes though: Fingerprint,password,MF card,back-up key. You can also use 'Double Authentication Mode' to unlock the door by both password and fingerprint scanning input. Our product has got APP too. But at the moment, it's not yet been activated. Because most of our customer worry about the hacking problem for the lock with WIFI connection and mobile APPs function.
You can visit our website for more information.
