First ever deadbolt with wifi connectivity

Dublin, Eire

Schlage, one of Allegion's leading brands, is introducing the first-ever wifi enabled deadbolt to work with Key by Amazon and Ring devices – the Schlage Encode Smart Wifi Deadbolt.

Featuring built-in wifii 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. It was recently on display at the Consumer Electronics show in Las Vegas and is now available for presale.

“Even with all the advancements in the category, we recognised there was still a gap in simple, secure, high-performance and cost-effective all-in-one solutions,” said Lee Odess, vice president, solutions providers business at Allegion, maker of Schlage locks. “Thus, Schlage Encode was designed to be the most versatile smart lock to date to provide homeowners with one trusted device – no gateway or hub needed – that could operate across home ecosystems and platforms and deliver the performance consumers expect from a category leader.”

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 an 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 directly 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.

“For the past year, we’ve been thrilled to see how customers have benefited from Key by Amazon. We started with the idea of having a package delivered inside your home and quickly learned that our customers found peace of mind and true delight from locking and unlocking their door for their families and the control that Key gave them of their most important place. We are now evolving Key to open up new possibilities,” said Rohit Shrivastava, GM of Key by Amazon. “The Schlage Encode lock is an innovative, easy-to-use option for any customer who wants to experience the magic of a keyless life. It makes managing access for renters, letting the dog walker in while you’re at work, sending a grocery delivery to your elderly parent’s house, and so much more incredibly simple – all you need is wifi and the Key app.”
