Wyze Lock Review

Wyze Lock Review

Wyze is noted for its low-cost security cameras and sensors for the home. The Wyze Lock is a smart lock that replaces your existing deadbolt. It connects to your home Wi-Fi network via a plug-in gateway, which is simple to set up. It’s the best lock for the money, albeit it lacks some of the capabilities of the Ultraloq U-Bolt Pro.

Design and Features:

Your door’s current keyed cylinder, deadbolt, and latch assembly are used by the Wyze Lock. It includes an interior escutcheon, a plug-in gateway module, four AA batteries, a mounting plate, and tailpiece adapters, as well as a mounting plate and tailpiece adapters. It has Bluetooth and Zigbee radios built-in, but no Wi-Fi radio. A two-prong socket for a normal wall outlet is located on the base of the gateway. It currently lacks compatibility for Alexa and Google voice commands, as well as IFTTT applets that would allow it to interface with other smart devices. It will, however, operate with the Wyze Keypad, which will be released later this year.

Installation and Performance:

From start to finish, the Wyze Lock takes less than fifteen minutes to install. From prior evaluations, I already had the Wyze mobile app and an account. The app immediately recognized the gateway and asked me to select my home Wi-Fi SSID. The gateway was linked in about 10 seconds, and I gave it a name. I followed the directions to close the door and manually lock the deadbolt after installing the Wyze Lock. It acted quickly when I used the mobile app to lock and unlock it, and it stuck to my automatic lock schedule to a tee. When the door was left open, the lock sounded an alarm, but it wasn’t very loud, even with the volume turned up high.

Locks and Unlocks your door automatically:

The automatic lock and unlock functions on the Wyze Lock can operate the deadbolt for you. Overall, auto-lock and -unlock are convenient, but they can be finicky in practice. This lock does not have a keypad because it merely changes the rear of your deadbolt.

Uses AA batteries:

Both the Wyze Lock and the Wyze keypad are powered by standard AA batteries. You won’t have to look in the battery aisle’s specialty section to find something that works. Some door locks require 9V batteries, which are less likely to be in your drawer.


  • Affordable minimalist design.
  • Easy to set up and use, and it makes the most of your existing hardware. 
  • Options for auto-lock and auto-unlock.


  • Other Wyze or third-party smart devices are not supported. 
  • Voice control and IFTTT support are not currently available.


The Wyze Lock is the greatest smart lock. It’s visually appealing and simple to set up, and it worked brilliantly in our tests. The firm has squandered a chance to allow users to build a Wyze-only DIY security solution that works seamlessly. If you’re ready to spend a little extra, the U-tec Ultraloq U-Bolt Pro will give you a lot more bang for your buck.
