Lock it Down

These new smart locks will bring your clients' projects into the 21st century

Making a Change

If customers aren’t interested in buying an all-new lock, Kevo Convert could be the answer. From Kwikset, the Kevo Convert transforms any deadbolt (from any brand, according to the company) into a smart lock without removing it. Users can lock and unlock the door with their smartphones, provided they’re within Bluetooth range. Homeowners can also give guests access to the home via electronic keys from the Kevo app.

An Apple a Day

Yale’s Assure deadbolt locks are smart locks with key-free core modules. The locks come equipped with Bluetooth and users can add on a Z-Wave or Zigbee module. The modules allow homeowners to switch or upgrade without purchasing a new lock. Yale expects that Assure locks will be compatible with Apple Homekit by the end of March.

Lock for Beginners

Brinks’ new Array smart lock is an easy introduction to the category. Array uses a WiFi router to connect the lock and a homeowner’s iOS, Android, and Amazon Alexa-enabled devices. Through the corresponding smartphone app, users can operate the solar-powered lock remotely and share an access code with visitors. Finishes include satin nickel, Tuscan bronze, and chrome.
