Schlage FE695 Touch Camelot lock with flair lever review

Design

Sleek without sacrificing strength, and it will work even when placed between a door and screen door. Fingerprint-resistant touchscreen protects against fingerprints and smudges and ensures wear patters remain undetectable. No more keys to lose, hide, carry or forget. Plus, since there is no keyhole of any kind, Schlage Touch™ is 100% pick and bump-proof. ANSI Grade 2 which indicates strong performance across a range of residential applications.

Build

Finish: The Schlage FE695-CAM Leverset comes in Brass (605), Antique Brass (609), Satin Nickel (619), Satin Chrome (626), and Aged Bronze (716) finish.

Handles

The handles come uninstalled on the posts, so depending on the orientation, left hand or right hand door the handles are mirror images of each other so a inside handle on the left hand door would by a outside handle on a right hand door. Once you know what position you need you slide on that handle. There is a release pin if you install the wrong handle by mistake. The instructions are as the photo shows, the point of the curve points down.

Keypad

The FE695 Touch™ Keypad Leverset is just the thing if you’re a homeowner with an active lifestyle, or a busy parent with kids who are always coming and going. Schlage Touch™ lets you do more with less hassle and can simplify your life. Go for a run without stashing a house key in your sock. Let the housekeeper in when you’re not a home. With Schlage Touch™, no key means there’s nothing to lose, nothing to fiddle with and, for would-be intruders, no cylinder to pick. Do all this without ever having to worry about being locked out. Schlage Touch™ is not just one less thing to carry; its’s a new kind of freedom, backed by the strength and expertise of Schlage – a leader in security for over 90 years.

Battery level

Schlage Touch gives you plenty of advance notice with a dedicated, illuminated low battery icon, as well as a slight nuisance delay that will trigger your attention and let you know it’s time to change the battery. Even if the battery should die for some reason, Schlage Touch features connectors that let you “jumpstart” it with a 9V battery which ensures you’ll always be able to access your home.

Schlage FE695 Installation

This thing was a piece of cake to install, all it really requires is a couple Phillips screwdrivers and a little time. Yes the programming & default codes are printed on a label on the back of one of the pieces, but fear not, there is also the same sticker on the front of the manual, so you don’t have to write anything down beforehand.
