"Why risk having literally anyone with a little time and a lock pick kit from getting into your house" applies just as well to Schlage Connect or Sense deadbolts. You say "buying a safer lock is a no-brainer," so I ask you what a "safer" lock is? Do you mean more likely to keep out the kind of threats you face at your specific address? Because then the safety isn't intrinsic in the lock, it's in your setup. I assume you conflated "stronger" with "safer," but the two are not equivalent. No lock is safer than the easiest means of entry into your home. Your complete home security setup may be relatively safer than another, but just upgrading your lock is like building a Maginot Line. Fortifying one means of entry without concern for how easy it is to bypass is false security.
My current lock is a Schlage deadbolt (bought from Apigy for the original Lockitron, since I wanted the tapered lock), just as you mention, and opening it with a set of lockpicks takes as long as that kevo video took. But anybody who wants in could just break a window. So by my estimation, the money spent upgrading my lock is better spent on a little property insurance. Every front door lock provides the same security at my place - the level of security provided by a window pane. Which is to say, it stops casual cruisers, but if anybody (no matter what my deadbolt is) decided to target me, they'd steal my stuff, and I'll be glad I have insurance.
I don't want to buy the kevo, either way, because I don't like that it advertises itself as a smart lock. I like the anonymity of a normal deadbolt cylinder. To me, that's more of a security liability than the ease of defeating the lock itself.
Also, cheers on your fine decorum.
