What Customers Are Saying
While the Aegis Smart Door Lock is still relatively new, we know that reviews make a difference when you are considering new products to purchase. Here are a few reviews from actual customers.
“Literally the easiest thing I have ever installed it was harder to get the backplate off the deadbolt. Installed per instructions, locks closed smoothly. Paired with BT and WiFi lock works as advertised.”

“Aegis is not only cool but also super affordable.”
“I have both Aegis and Sentry. The locks seem to work well minus a few features which they are working on. The installation is easy. The only issue you may run into is if your deadbolt doesn’t move smoothly (it catches and takes a little force to close or you have to pull or push the door), you will have to fix that first. There are videos online on how to fix this which usually involve filing down the strike plate or repositioning it. Takes about 1-2 hours if you’ve never done it before. If you’re familiar with the process, it would take around 30 minutes or so…. I think at this point for me, the issues may be software related. I’ve been emailing back and forth with support, who are excellent, and they said they are looking into the issues and will be pushing a firmware update. The only reason I haven’t disconnected these is the great support. They seem receptive to feedback on how to improve the products. It’s in the early stage so you can’t expect it to be perfect now. But I think in the future, it will be one of the best lock and doorbell on the market.”

“OMG! Sooooo, totally easy to install. I have to admit I was a bit hesitant to install this on my own given my past experiences with door locks but this was by far the easiest install I have ever done. Thanks to the wonderful print instructions, I would say it took me max 30 minutes to install. It could have been faster than that but the old screws were a bit hard to unfasten. The Bluetooth was easy to pair and so was the gateway! Excellent product. I’m ready for more. Thanks Bosma!”

Because the Aegis uses bluetooth technology and a mobile app to operate over your home’s WiFi, we’ve included bank-grade AES128 encryption to prevent hacks and attacks.
