Schlage Expands Footprint in the Smart Home Space with Amazon Alexa Integration

PR Newswire — February 28, 2017

CARMEL, Ind., Feb. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Schlage®, a brand of Allegion® that
has been creating stylish, innovative door hardware for more than 95 years,
today announced it will provide voice activation accessibility to its Schlage
Connect(TM) Touchscreen Deadbolt via Amazon Alexa. This added level of
functionality enables consumers to utilize Alexa-enabled devices, such as Amazon
Echo, to lock or check the status of their door via a Wink or Samsung
SmartThings hub from the convenience of a living room, bedroom or kitchen.

This latest addition in the brand’s smart home portfolio of products not only
builds upon its legacy of producing strong, secure and smart locks, but also
offers consumers the peace of mind and convenience, knowing their homes are
always locked and protected. This legacy and commitment remains true with
Alexa-enabled devices, therefore consumers must directly unlock a home or add
and delete user codes, rather than relying on third-party components at this
time.

“Smart home technology is all about incrementalism, whether it’s consumer
adoption or brands integrating with mega-technology platforms,” said Rob
Martens, futurist and vice president of strategy and partnerships at Allegion.
“Schlage is committed to providing the ultimate security and convenience, and we
are proud to now integrate with Alexa to provide consumers with added
convenience through Alexa-enabled devices.”

The multi-function Schlage Connect(TM) Touchscreen Deadbolt contains several
convenient features that unlock the true power of a smart home by enabling
homeowners to never have to worry about losing, hiding, carrying or forgetting
keys, including:

— One-touch locking functionality
— Fingerprint-resistant touchscreen that ensures access code numbers won’t
wear and become detectable after repeated use
— A slim exterior that prevents interference with storm doors
— An anti-pick shield that protects the lock against tampering
— Ability to hold up to 30 unique codes that can be tailored to specific
days and times for the week, allowing users to track movement in and out
of the home
— Offers customizable security with three unique alarm modes engineered to
sense vibrations at the door and immediately alerts consumers with an
audible alarm
— Graded Best in Security, Durability and Finish, receiving a AAA – the
highest residential grading awarded on the market by the Builders
Hardware Manufactures Association (BHMA)
These new integrations come as an addition to the Schlage Connect(TM)
Touchscreen Deadbolt’s existing compatibility with Z-Wave®, which allows
homeowners to manage their home from anywhere using an internet-connected
smartphone, tablet or computer. Schlage’s Connect is compatible with the most
trusted smart home platforms, making it one of the most versatile smart locks on
the market. These integrations allow Connect to interact with a variety of
connected products and empower a wide array of consumers to add the lock to
their smart home mix.

The Schlage Connect(TM) Touchscreen Deadbolt is now available on Amazon.com. For
