Schlage to Introduce Schlage Encode at CES 2019



Schlage, a brand of Allegion that has been creating stylish, innovative door hardware for more than 95 years, will announce its newest smart lock, Schlage Encode Smart WiFi Deadbolt at CES 2019. Featuring built-in WiFi connectivity, Schlage Encode is the brand’s next generation smart lock to enable secure remote access from anywhere, without the need for a hub.

Schlage Encode will initially be integrated to work with the Key app to provide homeowners with a convenient solution for access management that can be used without a camera or hub.

Schlage Encode is the newest connected device to enhance the brand’s portfolio of innovative smart locks. The deadbolt is easy to install, with a quick connection to in-home WiFi, to make it even more convenient for homeowners to have secure, remote access control.

The built-in technology eliminates the need for an additional hub – all you need is WiFi and the Key app to install and start using the lock. Customers can choose to add Amazon Cloud Cam to their Key Smart Lock Kit to monitor entries and deliveries but it is not required for the Schlage Encode to work.

Additionally, Ring customers will soon be able to lock and unlock their Schlage Encode direct from the live feed of their Ring doorbell or camera in the Ring app. Users can also enable the Key skill within their Alexa app to enjoy voice control of their lock.

Furthermore, Schlage will have an immense presence at CES this year, as the brand is also announcing the Schlage Connect Smart Deadbolt with Z-Wave integration with the Ring Alarm system. Ring Alarm customers can link the Schlage Connect Smart Deadbolt with Z-Wave to their Ring Alarm Base Station to add control to their Ring of Security.

This enables the lock and unlock features directly through the Ring App, and homeowners can also connect their Ring Alarm to Alexa-enabled devices for even more commands like “Alexa, lock the front door.”

The Schlage Encode WiFi Deadbolt is available for presale and will retail for $250 MSRP. In addition to the Key booth (#42320), the Schlage Encode will be on display at other partner booths at CES. Integration with the Ring App will additionally be available in the first quarter of 2019. The Schlage Connect Smart Deadbolt with Z-Wave is available for sale nationwide for $199 MSRP.


Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt Now Works With Google Assistant



Schlage, a brand of Allegion that has been creating stylish, innovative door hardware for more than 95 years, today announces at CES Unveiled that its Schalge Sense Smart Deadbolt will work with Google Assistant in early Q1.

With the Google Home, users will be able to lock the door or check if the door is locked by saying, “OK Google, lock my door” or “Google, is my door locked?” Beyond Google Home, you can also ask your Google Assistant on your iOS or Android smartphone.

Using the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt with the Google Assistant will require the Schlage Sense Wi-Fi Adapter. With the Schlage Sense Wi-Fi Adapter, iOS and Android smartphone users gain remote access to their lock through the Schlage Sense app, no monthly fee required.

The multifunction Schalge Sense Smart Deadbolt contains several convenient features that unlock the true power of a smart home by enabling homeowners to never worry about losing, hiding, carrying, or forgetting keys, including:

  • Create and delete up to 30 unique access codes so trusted friends and family can enter using their code at the lock’s touchscreen
  • Schedule and create codes so guests can only enter when you want them to
  • Use past activity to see which codes have been used and when
  • Update settings and check battery life Graded Best in Security, Durability and Finish, receiving a AAA – the highest residential grading awarded on the market by the Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association (BHMA)

The new integration will come as an addition to the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt’s existing compatibility with Amazon Alexa. Alternatively, users may choose to set up the Schlage Sense deadbolt with Apple HomeKit and use Siri to command the deadbolt on their iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch. These integrations allow the Schlage Sense lock to interact with a variety of connected products and empower a wide array of consumers to add the lock to their smart phone.

Schlage Announces Smart Locks and Deadbolts at CES



Schlage logoAs someone who’s got the world’s most stubborn front door deadbolt lock, I’m really intrigued by the idea of smart lock technology. Just opening the door with a simple swipe of my iPhone seems a whole lot easier than struggling with my current squirrelly deadbolt. That’s why when I saw the news that venerable lock maker Scalage brought new smart locks and deadbolts to CES, I had to check it out.

Later this year, Schlage will add new features to its existing Schlage Sense line of products, including an app for Apple Watch, as well as the ability to support Android devices and additional connected home products and ecosystems.

The Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt is one of the strongest, Bluetooth-enabled locks on the market, with the highest industry rating for security and durability. Compatible with Apple HomeKit, the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt allows users to control their door locks as part of their connected homes. Thru HomeKit, iOS device owners will be able to control their Schlage Sense devices using Siri.

For homeowners using Z-Wave technology, Schlage will also feature its Schlage Connect Touchscreen Deadbolt. Since its launch in 2013, the Schlage Connect deadbolt has allowed homeowners to be constantly connected to their front doors from anywhere in the world via leading Z-Wave compatible home automation systems.

The Schlage Smart Deadbolt has a suggested retail price of $229.00 and is currently available at retailers like Home Depot, Lowe’s and the Apple Store.
