This product is a great choice in terms of home security as it can successfully replace the regular door lock. It's more effective than other smart locks and it comes with many security features designed to keep your home safe.
The Schlage BE469 Connect Camelot Touchscreen Deadbolt is a great alternative to regular door locks as it offers a higher level of security. It’s designed for exterior use and it can keep your home securely locked while offering you wireless communication. Although it initially came at a pretty high price, this WiFi door lock is now a lot cheaper. The reasonable price tag combined with its overall capabilities make it a desirable choice to go with for any intelligent homeowner.
This is not a Bluetooth gadget, but a smart door lock that can be controlled via a wireless technology called Z-Wave that makes home security faster, easier and more convenient. You can easily connect to your home lock using your computer, smartphone, or tablet so you can have control over the access points into your home, but this technology offers more than that. The Z-Wave technology enables you to wirelessly control everything in your home from door locks to lights and appliances. As such, you can easily open the door for someone without being at home or turn off a light you forgot about.
This device uses ANSI Grade 1, a high-quality residential security system that provides the highest level of security and reliable assistance at any access point in your house. The reliability of this system makes it one of the most popular choices in this industry. Access is granted using a 4-digit code that you set yourself using the interface keyboard. For added security, it features a built-in alarm technology that lets you know with an audible alert every time it senses the movement of the door. You can choose from three types of alert, namely Activity, Tamper, or Forced Entry, so you will always be aware of who goes in and out of your home, and of the possible security threats. The door lock also includes an anti-pick shield that protects it against lock tampering and prevents any break-in attempts.
The access codes can be programmed right from the lock or using the Z-Wave platform provider. For maximum security and convenience, it can memorize up to 30 user codes, so any family member can have their own code. This is also great for when you want to offer someone access for a limited time since you can immediately erase their code without having to change your personal entrance code. If relatives are coming over, simply program a temporary code that will allow them access during their stay. The strong motorized bolt mechanism automatically locks and unlocks the door when a user code is entered and there is also the possibility of using a key as backup. The device uses a 5-pin cylinder bolt and it comes with two keys included so you can easily get inside if the device is not working for any reason. It operates on 4 batteries and there is an indicator light that lets you know when the batteries are running out of power. What this device doesn’t offer is a remote control, but in this case, a remote would be redundant since it is so much more convenient to use your smartphone.
This unit consists of an inside escutcheon and an outside one that offer you access from both inside and outside your home. While it is not a matter of high importance, the design of the device is very appealing and it can enhance the overall design of your home. It’s available in 5 different color finishes to match any design detail of your home. You can choose from Aged Bronze, Bright Brass, Bright Chrome, Matte Black, Satin Chrome, and Satin Nickel. The durable touchscreen is available in a matte finish and it is fingerprint-resistant so you won’t have to worry about fingerprints and smudges.
