Kwikset is currently pointing customers to its Amazon listing where the Contemporary model is priced at a salty $300 in a black or silver finish. However, the products aren’t shipping right away with the black quoting 1-3 weeks, and the silver 1-3 months.
Notably, the Kwikset Premis Traditional is almost half the price at $161 for the silver version. It has the same features as the Premis Contemporary aside from the aesthetic differences. A bronze model goes for $185.
If you’re set on a clean design like the latest Kwikset Premis but don’t want to spend $300, Schlage makes a simliar HomeKit lock that sells for $180.
