Amazon offers the Schlage Z-Wave Connect Camelot Touchscreen Deadbolt with Built-In Alarm in Bright Brass for $124.59 shipped. Normally closer to $180, and still fetching as much at Home Depot, this is a new all-time low at Amazon and the best available. Smart locks are great as you can easily get into your home without the use of a key, or make sure the house is locked even after you leave. Rated 4/5 stars from over 2,800 shoppers.
