Finally a smart phone idea!!
Actually opening your doors with a smartphone is nothing new. There has been a few problems with the idea though. Some hotels have a smart phone option that you can use instead of a key or card to open the door. Now there is a deadlock available from Kwikset with the same technology you can have on your house door that has all the same advantages.
The Kevo Deadlock from Kwikset works on Bluetooth and there is an app for smartphones which allows you to unlock the door simply by touching the lock. You don’t even have to touch the phone. Just keep the phone in your pocket. You can also enable another person to have access to the lock with the app and even allow them temporary access to the door remotely.
The Kevo also has a traditional key lock that can be used to override the electronic part of the lock, so you are not totally reliant on your phone to open the door. If something ever did go wrong with the electronics in the lock, the key can still be used for access. There is also the possibility to disable the key completely and rely totatlly on the electronic lock. If the security of a pin tumbler lock is an issue then disabling the key lock may be an option worth considering.
Having an app controlled lock also gives you the ability to change the combination or access to the lock very easily. The user can easily change who has the ability to unlock the door. This can be done instantly and there is no need to wait for a locksmith to come and change the lock. This can be very convenient to a number of specific users who need this type of lock changing ability.
The Kevo also employs the Kwikset smartkey system. This lock is bump proof and highly pick resistant. It is also drill resistant, saw resistant and resists attacks from hammering. The smartkey system can also be changed by the user with a special change key. The smartkey locks can all be changed to the same key or any other kwikset smartkey key. This makes the Kevo a very high security electronic lock for a residential home.
