Kwikset unlocks the future with the Kevo Plus Intelligent Lock

CES 2015 Kwikset Kevo Plus 2

With the Kwikset smart lock  Kevo you will never have to worry about being left out in the cold.

As a child I had the unfortunate experience of losing my house key numerous times and having to wait outside for one of my parent’s to arrive home from work. Thank goodness that technology has evolved. The Kwikset Kevo is a high tech Bluetooth enabled lock that allows you to set up encrypted electronic keys or eKeys on your Smart Phone to lock and unlock your door.

Given that we never go anywhere without our Smart Phones, the integration of the eKey into the phone is a fantastic concept that eliminates the issue of where your key is and (in my case) losing it.

You can set up temporary eKeys for guests or even schedule access times (planned future enhancement) which is very convenient to control access to your house. A great concept for maid service or even house sitters when you are on vacation.

There are different types of eKeys:

  • Owner eKey & Admin eKey – full access to the lock, history, notifications, send, edit, delete eKeys
  • Anytime eKey – lock or unlock the lock

In the case of a child or yourself if by chance your phone battery dies, you can always use the Kevo fob or a standard key to unlock your door.

The Kevo Plus (available this spring), will upgrade the functionality to the Kevo with remote Locking and Unlocking functionality.
