Kwikset Partners With Amazon To Enhance Functionality Of Its SmartCode Smart Locks
Kwikset, a leading provider of Smart Locks, recently partnered with Amazon to provide customers, who invested in a SmartCode 910, 912, 914, or 916 Smart Lock, with voice automation capabilities. This integration will allow Kwikset customers to control the above locks with voice commands. However, this features only works for SmartThings and Wink home automation platforms.
“The integration between Kwikset and Amazon Alexa devices offers homeowners even more convenience by simplifying the way they interact with their locks. Homeowners can now say, ‘Alexa, lock my door’ instead of having to open an app,” said Ashton Good, Kwikset Senior Product Manager, Spectrum Brands Inc. – Hardware and Home Improvement Division. “We’re excited for Kwikset to work in cooperation with SmartThings, Wink and Amazon to greatly improve and simplify the homeowner’s smart home experience, whether they are at home or away from home.”
Voice control is increasing in demand as Smart Home gadgets continue to rise. This is mainly due to the fact that consumers want to simplify their life and there is no better way to do it than with the SmartThings open platform and Kwikset and Amazon Alexa integrations.
The Kwikset SmartCode 912 Smart Lock is designed for an indoor application, since it is not weatherproof or weather resistant. The deadbolt is available in varying finishes, including satin nickel, Venetian bronze and polished brass. With these options, you will find a style that will envelop into your home, without the need to replace any of the existing door hardware.
The Kwikset SmartCode 914 Smart Lock features keyless access, a quiet-drive locking system, traditional exterior style and sleek metal interior. The lock is available in varying finishes, including satin nickel, Venetian bronze and polished brass.
Kwikset SmartCode 916 Smart Lock has a backlit touchscreen that works flawlessly. The patent-pending SecureScreen Technology aids in preventing “smudge” attacks, by throwing out two random digits that need to be pressed, prior to entering the master or visitor unique PIN code. The lock is designed for an outdoor application, as it is weatherproof and water resistant.
With the SmartThings or Wink hub, users will be able to share access with others and access their home with a simple touch. All SmartCode Smart Locks are backed by a lifetime finish and mechanical warranty, along with a 1-year electronics warranty.
