With the bridge, the unit works well right now. Here is what I learned. Initially I had an issue blinking up the bridge.
It's easier to blink up the bridge in a darker room environment. The bridge sits in my office, about 15 ft away from the lock. The router is also in the office, which is about 5 ft away from the bridge. All works pretty well so far.
Feature request. Would be nice to give away a guest key for a specific day(s), and time. I have cleaners that come every Friday at say 12 pm. Would be nice to provide them access only on Friday's from 12 - 5pm, or every other Friday.
