I purchased some Kwikset 914 deadbolts. I bought these Z Wave models because in my research I read that it is possible to control them from a Z wave hub, including most importantly, the ability to set a schedule, so that a certain code works only at a certain time of day.

I have bought a Samsung Smartthings hub and there appears to be no such capability; all you can do is lock or unlock them -- utterly worthless with deadbolts that automatically lock themselves anyway (another reason for my purchase). Did I buy the wrong locks? The wrong smart hub?

If they donít have this capability then I feel like a fool for paying $180 each for locks that are for me functionally no different from a $59 keyless deadbolt.

I just received a message from Smartthings, that indeed, their unit does not do this, so anyone know of a Z-Wave hub that can schedule lock codes to be active only at certain times?

Do you have a link to where you read about setting a schedule for a certain code?

"Control when others have access to your home

Do you have a contractor coming by on Monday at 2 pm, or a housekeeper that comes on Thursdays between 9am-12pm? You can assign a specific code and create a schedule that only allows entry into your home during those times."

https://www.kwikset.com/Electronics/Homeowners/RemoteAccess.aspx

From this it seems I just bought the wrong controller. Smartthings says such scheduling is "on their list of customer requests." but I'm trying to find out what controller I should buy now; it's not too late to return the Smartthings.

Thanks for the link, but as you probably noticed, it looks like a work in progress. The informative links come up blank. Interesting that the website has a 2015 copyright date.

You may want to contact Kwikset.

Oh. Man! Really? I am sorry to know that you have pay USD180 for that SamS*ng door lock without the function you need. That's really a SKY HIGH price compare to our product. Our door lock has got 4 access mode available: fingerprint,password,MF card,back-up key. Your home security will be strengthened and the dual input modes provides greater security access by both password and fingerprint scanning input. Also you can let your trusted people(house cleaner,babysitter etc.) come in your home with a password at certain time. You can change/delete the password anytime you want.
