Kwikset has introduced its 2nd Generation SmartCode deadbolt lock with Home Connect technology.
This new version of the SmartCode deadbolt brings a range of enhanced design features, and new certifications and capabilities, to Kwikset’s innovative home automation security solution.
Kwikset’s 2nd Generation SmartCode deadbolt lock features a new design, offering a new exterior style and reduced interior size for enhanced aesthetics inside and outside the home. With a completely redesigned quiet-drive locking system, the Kwikset 2nd Generation SmartCode deadbolt blends technology and performance in a smartly designed package that complements the aesthetics of any home.
Said Keith Brandon, director of residential access solutions for Kwikset, "By continuously listening to our consumers’ residential style preferences, we are able to deliver market-leading electronic locks that provide all of the industry-leading access control, security and convenience features, while delivering the aesthetics that today’s homeowners demand. Specifically, the smaller footprint of the new SmartCode deadbolt is a direct result of customer feedback through a variety of sources, including direct communications and focus groups."
Kwikset’s SmartCode deadbolts and levers with Home Connect technology integrate with home security and automation systems, allowing the locks to communicate with other wireless products in the home such as security systems and home entertainment systems. Home Connect technology delivers convenience and peace of mind to homeowners with complete remote locking and unlocking via smartphones and tablets. When paired with most home automation systems, homeowners can receive text messages when their doors are locked or unlocked, making Home Connect perfect for working parents who want to keep track of their kids or traveling professionals who want to monitor their home security from afar.
Other features of Kwikset’s SmartCode locks with Home Connect technology include: Kwikset’s patented SmartKey re-key technology, that allows homeowners to re-key their locks in seconds without having to remove the lock from the door; BumpGuard technology that protects homeowners from lock bumping; the ease of one-touch programming; the ability to integrate with a wide variety of wireless security and home automation platforms in the industry; and 20 different styles and finishes.
Kwikset’s 2nd Generation SmartCode deadbolt locks with Home Connect technology will be available beginning in Q3 2013.
