Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth Door Lock - Venetian Bronze

Kwikset Kevo Bluetooth Door Lock – Venetian Bronze

  • Compatible with iOS devices (iPhone 4S, 5, 5S, 5C) only
  • Open and enter your home by simply tapping the deadbolt
  • No smartphone, no problem. KEVO also works with a key fob
  • Deadbolt intelligently knows if you’re inside or outside your home
  • Send eKeys to friends, family, and more via the app
  • See and control who enters your home and at what times

Locking and unlocking doors has never been easier with this Touch-To-Open Bluetooth Deadbolt! Pair your smartphone or included key fob and simply tap the deadbolt to lock or unlock your door! Home security for family and friends is always high on any homeowners list of priorities. Traditional key entry methods are good, but troublesome when you need to enter or leave quickly, or are carrying a lot of items as you fumble with your key ring. Here is when Kwikset’s 925 KEVO Deadbolt 11P (Venetian Bronze) comes in to provide comfort and security with its simple, bump-proof, design ideal for left or right-handed doors. Unlike normal locks, Kevo is a smart deadbolt that uses a touch-to-open convenience entry method when a Bluetooth connected smartphone (iOS iPhone 4S, 5 , 5S, 5C only) or key fob (smart keys) are within range of the deadbolt. Keep your phone in your pocket or purse. No more fumbling for your keys. Just touch the lock to open.

Entering and leaving your home is easier since you can unlock the door by tapping the deadbolt. The deadbolt still operates like a standard mechanical lock, so keyed entry is possible if a connected smart key is not detected. After tapping the deadbolt, a blue LED ring light spins around the deadbolt indicating it’s searching for a certified smart key. If a certified smart key is detected, the light turns green and unlocks (yellow when locking), but turns red if a smart key is not detected. However, if a smart key is out-of-range, a magenta light will appear, prompting you to move closer. Of course, these lights can tell anyone, friendly or not, about the occupancy of the home, but Kwikset has programmed the lights to only appear if the deadbolt is certain you are outside. If the deadbolt has the slightest inclination you’re inside, it’ll only show the blue light and then nothing so your privacy and security is protected.

Remotizer Wireless Electronic Deadbolt Adapter with Keyfob Remote

  • Adds remote control option to door deadbolt
  • Universally compatible with single cylinder deadbolts
  • Does not require any door alterations
  • 40 foot signal range
  • Paintable exterior
  • National Inventors Convention first prize

Lock and unlock your front door the same way you would your car with a Wireless Electronic Deadbolt Adapter with Keyfob Remote! At the push of a button, you can easily unlock and lock your front door without even touching it while an audible beep will confirm that your door has locked behind you. In as little as five minutes the Remotizer can be installed in place of your existing single cylinder deadbolt turn knob by unscrewing the existing cover and replacing it with the Remotizer base. That’s it. No door alterations or extensive wiring are needed and it comes in a small form factor at 4-3/8″ high and 3-5/16″ wide to prevent it from being an eyesore. The Remotizer has a wireless range of up to 40 feet with its keyfob remote making it extremely convenient; for example unlock the door as you park so you don’t need to fumble with keys while you carry groceries. With the Remotizer installed your keys will still work but because they aren’t needed they can now serve as back-up or spare keys for use in an emergency. The Remotizer comes with one remote keyfob for use in locking and unlocking the door. When locking the door the Remotizer unit will beep to notify you that it has locked. The exterior of the unit can be painted if desired and is powered by four AA batteries (sold separately) which with normal use should last for roughly one year before needing to be replaced. Additional keyfob remotes for the Retmotizer are available and sold separately if you want to provide family members or friends with a remote. Read More
