Changing a front entry door with a SmartLock - any dos and don’t see?

I’ve got to dismantle all parts of the current entry door including the SmartLock - any tips from those who’ve done this?

Unless you're replacing the entire deadbolt and installing a new one, you shouldn't need to do so much dismantling! The front keyhole and all the internal mechanisms should stay in place (we supply a removable tape along with the kit to hold the front piece down). The only thing you're really doing is taking off the inside piece where the thumbturn is, and replacing that with the Smart Lock.
