Kwikset updates line of smart connected locks


The contemporary SmartCode 914 and SmartCode 916 smart locks feature an updated, modern design, while continuing to utilise Kwikset’s Home Connect technology. As a result, they integrate with home security and automation systems to deliver convenience and peace of mind to homeowners with complete remote locking/unlocking via smartphones and tablets.

Both SmartCode 914 and SmartCode 916 with Home Connect technology incorporate the new Z-Wave 500 Series chip. The new chip provides a number of enhancements, including extended wireless range and wireless security features that reduce the vulnerability of the network during enrolment, as well as increased battery life. The SmartCode 916 features Kwikset’s unique SecureScreen, which helps mask “smudge” attacks in which users’ codes can be potentially jeopardised by detecting frequently used numbers from the oily residues on the touchscreen surface.
