Kwikset, an American-based lock manufacturer, was founded in 1946, which says a lot about the company’s history and ability to satisfy consumers. The company joined the Smart Lock industry in 2013, with the introduction of the Kwikset Kevo 1st Generation Bluetooth Smart Lock. Since this time, Kwikset launched the second version of the Kevo and several other Smart Locks.
Millions of consumers have already traded their traditional deadbolt in for a Smart lock. However, when it comes to security, just any ole’ Smart Lock will do. Instead of putting your home at risk, you should secure your front door with either the Kwikset Obsidian or Kwikset Premis Smart Lock.
