Keyless Entry

With the Defiant Smart Wi-Fi Deadbolt, you don’t have to carry keys around with you.

Instead, you can use a backlit keypad to enter your home, making it easy and convenient to access your home.

Forget your code? No worries! There’s the good old-fashioned key in case the battery goes out.  

Remote Access

The Defiant Smart Wi-Fi Deadbolt can be easily integrated with smart home platforms like Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. This means that you can use your voice to control the keyless entry lock and monitor its status.

Control the deadbolt locally via Bluetooth or unlock and lock your door from anywhere using the Hubspace app on your smartphone.

This feature allows you to monitor your home remotely and grant access to visitors or service providers even when you’re not at home.

Custom Codes

The Defiant Smart Wi-Fi Deadbolt allows for one master code and 10 customized access codes for family members, friends, and service providers. 

There’s also a vacation mode, where you can set temporary access codes that expire after a specific period. 

You can view event logs and access history on the app, allowing you to monitor the comings and goings of visitors and family members.


The Defiant Smart Wi-Fi Deadbolt offers a great balance of features and value.

When it comes to price, it’s relatively affordable compared to its keyless entry competitors. It is priced lower than the Schlage Encode Smart Wi-Fi Deadbolt and Kwikset Halo Smart Lock, and only slightly more expensive than the August Smart Lock.

While it may not have some of the advanced features of its more expensive competitors, it still offers a solid set of features at an affordable price point.

Easy Installation

The Defiant Smart Wi-Fi Deadbolt is installed just like a traditional deadbolt. 

Because it’s powered by AA batteries, there’s no hardwiring required for this keyless entry. All you need to install is it is a Phillips screwdriver to drive in the screws on the lock through pre-drilled existing cutouts.  

To Sum It Up

With its compatibility with popular smart home platforms like Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, and customizable access codes, the Defiant Smart Wi-Fi Deadbolt adds an extra layer of convenience and security to your home.

Plus, the remote access feature allows you to monitor and control your home security from anywhere. While the installation process may require a little bit of DIY know-how, overall the Defiant Smart Wi-Fi Deadbolt offers a good value for its price.
