UPDATE: CES 2015: Let's Lock the Door and Throw Away the Key

A year later, the reviews are in.

From a 1/6/2015 Consumer Reports review: Both electronic Schlage locks we tested—the $130 Schlage BE365 V CAM 619 and the similar Schlage Camelot Touchscreen Deadbolt with Alarm BE469NX CAM 619, $200—were impressive or even exceptional against all our efforts in our kick-in test. That brought both locks to the top of the Ratings in those categories.

And most consumers are satified.

CES Day Two: Big Data Powers the Internet of Things.  (DMA, 1/7/2015)
The Internet of Things (or “The Internet of Me”) continued to dominate the conversation at CES and blaze as one of the hottest topics. Schlage, for example, announced a touch pad smart lock that users Siri voice commands to allow homeowners to unlock and lock their doors at will.

"Live."  Perhaps the song reached #7 on Cashbox, but "Let's Lock the Door" just missed the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100.  It spent 2 weeks at #11 in February 1965.
