Lock operating distance

I have a Kwikset 912 on my garage door. Operating remotely only works 1 in 10 times - I suspect It’s because signal has to go maybe 15 yards and through a wall. But, battery status, setting pin codes, logging etc works fine… How come? What do you do? Would any other devices be useful in repeating the (encrypted) signal?



45ft is too far for the lock to operate successfully, Kwikset locks have a range of 25ft line of sight anything out of that range is going to require beaming repeaters, I would recommend two repeaters, 1 near the zwave controller and the other next to the lock.

I’d also recommend useful devices like light switches or outlets to repeat the signal versus paying for a pure repeater.

For the money, get dome utility.
