Schlage deadbolts did not initially offer a motorized deadbolt, which is sort of important for home automation. I have the non-zwave non-motorized schlage deadbolts on my entry doors to the house and they are well designed. Prior to them, I had the non zwave but motorized kwickset and they failed to operate after 8 months but since under warrantee were replaced free of charge by the mfr. So now that I am getting a vera and doing the home automation gig, I am looking at replacing the entry deadbolts. My inclination is to go with schlage since they woked well for me in the past and kwikset failed on me. But I've read several posts here where people have trouble pairing schlage with vera and other posts where yale batteries deplete quickly (tho this appears to be mitigated by a variable change in the script).
For me, I also like the 10 buttons on schage and yale vs the 5 buttons on kwikset. I think schlage also used to be limited to 4 digit pins while kwicket pins could be 6 or 8 perhaps. I think the schlage now will allow pin length > 4 digits. I like the idea the previous poster mentioned where you have the press the * button after the pin before the lock unlocks.
