New Locks Go High Tech
It's a familiar scenario. A family hits the road, headed to their vacation destination only to arrive and wonder: Did we lock the front door as we were leaving?
No need to worry, thanks to two well-known lock companies that recently introduced innovative, high-tech door locks that allow homeowners to control access to their homes remotely.
In September, Kwikset launched its remote access control solution, called SmartCode with Home Connect Technology. These keyless entry electronic locks, developed to work with home automation and security systems, can communicate wirelessly with other devices in the home. The locks allow you to check door lock status as well as control the lock using either a Web-enabled device or a home automation system. Now, if you forget to lock your door, and you're already at work, you can just do it yourself with the click of a mouse.
Schlage also offers a remote door lock system called Schlage LiNK. Using wireless technology, homeowners can remotely lock or unlock doors equipped with Schlage's wireless keypad locks, as well as monitor entry. Remote access can be obtained from a computer or Web-enabled mobile phone. The system can even be set up to notify parents when their children arrive home from school, by e-mail or text message.
