It's been a while since I looked into the Schlage locks, but the last time I checked they still required a person to be present (with their clutch-style system).
BE469 is fully motorized and can be remotely actuated. I think this new deadbolt hit the market around January of this year or so.
Note to anyone considering this unit ... there was a problem including with third-party z-wave controllers (ie. anything other than the Schlage Nexia controller) that is apparently resolved with a new firmware upgrade. The new firmware is just released, but there are probably several locks in the retail/wholesale chain with the older firmware. To upgrade, you either need to ship the lock back to Schlage or upgrade via Nexia bridge.
It is, in all other respects, a great unit IMO.
