Schlage Connect Review – Schlage Smart Lock Camelot Touchscreen Deadbolt Review
Many homeowners are installing keyless door locks on their home entrance doors, because they offer so much convenience and security for everyone. Unlike the traditional lock and key, you will only need to enter a special code into the device, in order to gain access to your home.
The Schlage Connect Camelot is a high tech door lock that is designed to offer easy access into any home or business. The touch key pad offers a keyless security entry, so you will never have to worry about losing your keys again. Of course, the Schlage also has a key-hole entry option, so you can utilize the backup key that is included in the package deal, just in case you forget the code. The key-hole has anti-pick shield, which prevents burglars from being able to pick the lock and gain access to your home.
The Schlage is available in an array of finishes including satin nickel, bright brass, bright chrome, matte black, satin chrome, and aged bronze, so you will find a finish that matches your other door hardware. The motorized bolt will automatically lock/unlock the door instantly after the code is entered successfully.
The Schlage Connect not only offers touchscreen entry, but it also offers extra security features. The built-in alarm will audibly alert you, when someone tries to gain access into your home. This alarm technology is very sensitive and will pick up door movements very easily.
The Z-Wave and Wink Hub capability offers you more control over your entire home automation system. You will be able to remotely lock/unlock the door from your source device. Just go to the Schlage website or app store and download the Schlage Connect app. This software will allow you to control all access to your home and you can also setup different codes for family members, friends, dog walker, or housekeeper. You can also adjust the codes to only operate on specific days of the week, by utilizing the app.
You will receive an alert message on your source device, before the battery is getting ready to die. This will allot you enough time to make replace the 4 AA batteries. If you utilize the Z-Wave platform the batteries will drain much quicker, but if you prefer not to utilize it, the batteries will last for other 8,000 hours, even when used daily.
