Residential door hardware manufacturer Kwikset expanded its portfolio of Home Connect products with the introduction of the SmartCode Lever at CES 2010. This keyless, touchpad, electronic lock is developed for interoperability with home automation and security systems, and is designed for use on external and internal entryways, such as the door from the garage to the home; the door to a home office, which may hold sensitive documents; and a storage closet that houses valuable possessions.

The company also announced that its SmartCode Deadbolt with Home Connect, which has been ZigBee certified since market introduction, has now achieved Z-Wave certification.

Homeowners using SmartCode with Home Connect, whether the deadbolt or lever product, can use a Web-enabled cell phone, the Internet, or home automation/security touch panel to check their door lock status, automatically arm and disarm their security system, and receive text notification when someone has entered.

The company says this is the only remotely accessible lock on the market that has true, one-touch locking. Homeowners can select to have their doors automatically lock after 30 seconds, without fear of being locked out. In addition, both products have the ability to speak wirelessly with other home electronics, such as lighting, the thermostat, and music/entertainment system(s).

Kwikset, as a part of Black & Decker, is a member of both ZigBee and Z-Wave Alliances, and will be using these protocols to communicate with home security and automation platforms. Kwikset is working with market leaders in the home automation and security industries such as Control4, D-Link, DSC, GE Security, iControl Networks, Intamac, AMX, Crestron, Mi Casa Verde, Leviton, Xanboo, and HAI, among others, to ensure the seamless integration of Home Connect products with the widest possible range of operating platforms.
