Anyone got any personal experience with the Kwikset SmartKey or the Schlage SecureKey?

I've read all the lock pickers sites, the allegations of easy lock bumping and that stuff, but I'm looking for anyone that's worked with the stuff.

Yes. Thanks. I've got the various locksmith types all pitching me the pitch on their stupid POS hardware, and my experience with Schlage (lately) has been they're just another chunk of metal.....might as well go Defiant from the Orange Box.

I'm attracted to the SmartKey thing because I have to change out locks every time a tenant moves out, and it would be nice to just do a quick 3 minute change instead of going full bore hardware swap.

The locksmith thing has gotten out of control. They stick in proprietary stuff that I can't fiddle with because only they have the magic key. They want a few hundred to change out a tumbler nowadays. Can't handle that.
