Two of Kwikset's SmartCode deadbolt locks are now “Crestron Connected,” making them compatible with Crestron control systems that provide wireless home control of lighting, shades, temperature, and security.
Using embedded Creston infiNET EX wireless technology, the Kwikset SmartCode deadbolt locks with Home Connect can receive commands and even communicate with other devices through the Crestron control system. As a result, homeowners can lock and unlock doors from anywhere in the house using a Crestron touch screen or a mobile device. They can also control the lock remotely, from anywhere in the world, using the Crestron mobile app for Apple and Android devices.
The Kwikset SmartCode deadbolt locks that now integrate with the Crestron system include the SmartCode 914 Touchpad Electronic Deadbolt and the SmartCode 916 Touchscreen Electronic Deadbolt. The SmartCode 916 also offers a Secure Screen feature to guard against “smudge” attacks.
“We are thrilled to bring Kwikset’s SmartCode line, with its innovative features and functionality, to our portfolio of Crestron Connected devices,” said Steve Samson, Crestron director of business development. “With its powerful combination of convenience, security, and innovative design, the SmartCode lock can play a central role in any Crestron Connected smart home.”
Keith Brandon, divisional vice president of Residential Access Solutions for Kwikset, said, “Our innovative SmartCode deadbolt locks are a natural fit for Creston’s home automation solution. One of our principal goals in growing our SmartCode deadbolts line is to partner with the most respected companies in the home automation arena. We’re definitely accomplishing this goal with our new Crestron partnership.”
Other features of Kwikset’s SmartCode locks with Home Connect technology include Kwikset’s patented SmartKey Re-key Technology, which 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; one-touch locking; and the ability to integrate with a variety of wireless security and home automation platforms in the industry.
