The short answer is that it depends on what you are looking for and need from your locks. If you are looking for easy re-keying, Kwikset outperforms Schlange. Kwikset provides SmartKey® technology for the simplest re-keying in seconds, so you do not need to switch locks and have new keys made each time, while Schlange's process is far more complex and requires taking the lock apart.
Both brands have excellent mobile apps for select smart locks and have smart locks that provide smart home functionality from Alexa, Google Assistant, AppleHomeKit, Z-Wave, and other technologies. Both brands also benefit from providing a wide range of lock varieties and provide key & keyless entry even with smart locks.

To re-key a pin and tumbler deadbolt, a pin and tumbler knob, all you need is a Kwikset Re-keying kit, a Kwikset key, and a pin and tumbler lock.
