With the introduction of a new Iron Black finish to its smart lock collection, Kwikset is heightening its focus on lock design and aesthetics. The contemporary versions of Kwikset’s SmartCode 914 Deadbolt Lock and SmartCode 916 Touchscreen Electronic Deadbolt will be the first connected locks to feature the new Iron Black finish.
With this new finish, in addition to the existing Polished Chrome, Satin Nickel, and Venetian Bronze finishes, Kwikset is continuing to meet customer demand for a broader range of aesthetic options.
The contemporary SmartCode 914 and SmartCode 916 smart locks feature an updated, modern design, while continuing to utilize Kwikset’s Home Connect technology. As a result, they integrate with home security and automation systems to deliver convenience and peace of mind to homeowners with complete remote locking/unlocking via smartphones and tablets.
Both SmartCode 914 and SmartCode 916 with Home Connect technology incorporate the new Z-Wave 500 Series chip. The new chip provides a number of enhancements, including extended wireless range and wireless security features that reduce the vulnerability of the network during enrollment, as well as increased battery life.
The SmartCode 916 features Kwikset’s SecureScreen, which helps mask “smudge” attacks in which users codes can be potentially jeopardized by detecting frequently used numbers from the oily residues on the touchscreen surface.
MSRP for the SmartCode 914 is $199; MSRP for the SmartCode 916 is $219.
