Schlage's Nexia Home Intelligence system is less than the sum of its parts

Schlage was an early player in the electronic home-control market. Back in 2010, the company offered DIY kits that included an entry lock with an electronic keypad. More recently, it has rebooted its efforts and given the product a new name: Nexia Home Intelligence. With Schlage now shipping its second generation of electronic entry locks, I decided to take a fresh look at its home-control system.
If you're interested in home control, Nexia is a good choice--but Iris is better. If you want to avoid the monthly fees that both of those services charge, consider a system from Mi Casa Verde. I'll have a review of one of that company's controllers in the near future.
