[[VIDEOID:d94bf667721c1c228f10439765354473]] This door lock is awesome. I had no trouble installing it or programming it. Directions for programming are super easy to follow. I'm using it to secure my office and it works great for that. It feels like it will last a long time and fits in standard doors. I love the 3 different options for opening it (key, code, or fingerprint) and that it automatically locks when I close it so I don't have to worry about "setting" it. I would definitely consider using this on an outside door but I would have to get a different dead bolt. My deadbolts are "fancy" looking and not the standard round shape so the square shape gets in the way of the panel. Other than that I have no qualms with it. Has recognized my fingerprints every time i've tried and hasn't let me in with the wrong fingerprint. Entering a code also works great. I will have to see how long the batteries last but this really is a great buy.
*Note* I received my item for free or at a discounted rate in order to write an honest and unbiased review. If I didn't like it, I would tell you.
PS I also included a picture of the programming guide so you can see all the different programming options.

Will work with a DEADBOLT AVOVE LOCK! Very Nice, Reliable lock and good ENGLISH instructions.
By Dave DeCandis
I bought this for an exterior door that HAS a deadbolt. After seeing several people here say it didn't fit I figure I would try it, and if it didn't fit, I would use it for my garage door coming into the house. After trying it, it overlapped the deadbolt hole by about 1/2". I took it apart and flipped it around so now the keypad is on the bottom. After taking the screws off the back cover, remove the 2 screws from the top board, 2 screws from the reader, 4 from the bottom board and 1 from the upper housing, you can flip the keys and lower board around. Now, it's all on the bottom including the fingerprint reader, which I think it better for it now moisture and UV can't get on the lens, which is really the only thing that has a seam where moisture "could" possibly get in.
After that, programming went easy, especially after watching the video from Taihard on the 2 or 3rd page of reviews. ---> http://www.amazon.com/Arrival-Fingerprint-Keyless-Protection-Password/product-reviews/B013UXLJF8/ref=cm_cr_getr_d_paging_btm_3?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1&sortBy=recent&pageNumber=3
It's easily switchable from right to left handed, and can be set to auto lock or stay unlocked with little effort to toggle between the two.
If/when it fails, I promise to update this review accordingly, but so far, it's a nice solid, reliable lock.

terrible installation instructions
good concept, terrible installation manual; spent an entire day trying to get this to work and in the end still does not work even w/ the help of youtube videos; lock is always in the unlock position; tried the youtube video on how to fix it but still did not work; should not have to spend so much time on changing a lock! can't put up with such difficult installation. returned.
