Kwikset’s Patented SmartKey Security Is Making Its Way To The Automotive Industry
Kwikset, a major provider of locks and locksets, joined the Smart Home industry between late 2012 and early 2013. The company released its first Smart lock onto the market on June 19, 2013, followed by the Kwikset Kevo 2nd Generation on August 30, 2016. Kwikset’s Smart locks are very unique in that they are embedded with a patented SmartKey Security feature that protects against forced, undetectable entries. This feature not only enhances the lock’s functionality, but also gives homeowners peace of mind in knowing that their home is secure, while they are in or away.
Horizon Global Corporation has decided to join forces with Kwikset to expand the SmartKey Security to the automotive Industry. Horizon Global Corporation, a leading provider of trailering and towing equipment, will be incorporating the SmartKey into various automotive accessories, including ball mounts, hitches, cargo management products, and fifth wheels. These products have a high street value, which is why thieves are always trying to get their hands on them.
The SmartKey is capable of averting pick locking and lock bumping entry techniques. The first SmartKey embedded automotive accessory will be on display at the 2016 SEMA Show, which is underway at the Las Vegas Convention center. To learn more about these products you can visit the Horizon Global Corporation official website.
