New unreliabilities in Kwikset z-wave locks

I purchased a Zigbee Kwikset 914 model and will be installing it soon on another door. Hopefully it works and if so, I will just change out the Zwave card for a Zigbee card on the other one.

FWIW I stay away from anything Z-wave. I have tried many permutations of setups and I came to a conclusion that the protocol is just inherently unreliable. Donโ€™t get me wrong, I had it working probably 95% of the time, but thatโ€™s just not good enough. My Zigbee and Lutron stuff has never failed, not once. Problem is Z-wave seems to have better variety.
