Schlage is a door lock manufacturer founded by Walter Schlage in 1920. Since its first appearance, Schlage has somehow attached the words “competent” and “secure” to its name. Each and every single one of its locks assures you a comfortable grasp at security. Over time, Schlage has given us a lot of quality deadbolts with different innovations but the same up-to-standard quality.
The more recent electronic deadbolts have a lot of people stunned, putting an end to the reign of terror of tradition keys. In this review, I’ve combined a list of the top five lot of Schlage deadbolt locks for the year 2017 to help you narrow down your options when picking a deadbolt, because trust me when I say there are quite a lot of Schlage locks.

However, before we proceed, there are some organizations we have to be familiar with. Rather, there is one organization in particular:
The American National Standards Institute is a private non-profit organization that oversees the development of voluntary consensus standards for products, services, processes and personnel in the United States. In other words, ANSI rates products, services and the likes for us and gives us feedback which allows us to know how capable these rated things are. The ANSI grading for deadbolts was developed by the Builder’s Hardware Manufacturers.
ANSI rates deadbolts on a scale of 1-3.
- Basically, anything rated 1 can withstand 1 million opening and closing cycles and 10 strikes of 75 pounds of force. Making these locks secure for keeping gold, silver, children, anything!
- A grade 2 lock can withstand 8000,000 opening and closing cycles and 5 strikes of the 75 pounds of force.
- A grade 3 lock can also withstand 800,000 cycles of opening and closing and 2 strikes of 75 pounds of force.
I think that is pretty clear. We can move on to the:
TOP 5 SCHLAGE ELECTRONIC DEADBOLTS 2017
Schlage BE375 Touch Camelot Keyless Deadbolt
ANSI RATING: Grade 2
AVAILABLE COLOURS: Aged bronze, matte black, antique brass, bright brass, bright chrome, satin chrome, satin nickel.
This Schlage device is a touch screen bump proof deadbolt. And I have to say I am very impressed with its features. This device:
- Works with screen doors
- Is bump-proof
- Has a vacation mode to disable all user codes.
- Warns user of low batteries in advance
This device doesn’t make use of Wi-Fi, so you don’t need a phone to control it. It allows 19 unique 4 digit user codes. While it doesn’t lock automatically behind you, it is still an excellent pick. It measures 1.5*3*5.4 inches and weighs 6 pounds. It doesn’t come with an option of a traditional key, so its just codes or nothing else. It is also 100% bump proof. Installing it is as easy as ever with instructions and manuals and a helpline to contact if you’re having issues.
Schlage Camelot With Accent Lever FE695CAM619
ANSI RATING: Grade 2
This super sensitive lock can be operated in the rain and through gloves. As is expected, it stores up to 19 four digit user codes. It measures 3″ x 5.4″ x 5.2 and comes in Satin Nickel. The accent lever is like a normal door lever. This makes it feel more homey. It is also 100% bump-proof and 100% pick-proof. This lock has two modes; temporary and unlock modes.
- Enter a User Code into the keypad.
- Rotate the lever to open the door. Door will automatically re-lock.
Set to Unlocked
- Rotate the inside thumb-turn to the vertical position.
- Rotate the thumb-turn back to the horizontal position to re-lock.
Also, no user code is required to open the door when the lock is set to unlocked.
Installation is not a big deal either, in a few minutes, you’re done! Manuals as well as videos to aid installation are also made available. This lock is not controlled by a smartphone. It’s a strictly-code thing. So its not too “techy”. Lastly it has a 3 year warranty so lock charges shouldn’t surface in every annual budget. A round of applause to Schlage for this!
