Kwikset introduces its Kevo smart lock
Ever heard of the company Kwikset before? They happen to be a leading brand when it comes to hardware and home improvement, and this time around, they have something interesting for the masses to check out in terms of home security. After all, every man has his castle, and in order to make sure that his modern day abode remains safe and sound from any intrusions (as much as it is possible anyways), here is the Kevo smart lock from Kwikset. The Kevo smart lock happens to be a highly anticipated Bluetooth-enabled deadbolt that will transform your iPhone into your house key. I know that there will be some level of consternation among you, since losing your phone would also mean that you would have lost your house key. Let us read on how the Kevo smart lock would work right after the jump.
Touted to be convenient and versatile, the Kevo smart lock would enable owners to have the ability to unlock the door with their smartphone, accompanied by a simple touch. Not only that, you are also able to send electronic keys (eKeys) to family, friends and service people; in addition to receiving notifications whenever there is someone who enters or exits their door.
The moment an eKey is sent, recipients will just need to download the mobile app if you have not yet installed it. Once that is done, just keep the iPhone in your handbag or pocket, and the door can be unlocked with but a simple touch. There will be many different levels of permission, and Kevo Owners and Administrators have authorization to send, delete and disable eKeys within a matter of seconds. Once eKeys have been distributed, you also have the choice of receiving notifications whenever a user locks or unlocks the door, paving the way for convenient home security management. Do you think this is better than a traditional set of keys?
