The sleek, low-profile touchscreen is the centerpiece of several new residential door locks being introduced to Canada this year.
Eliminating the keyway has allowed Weiser to create a visually striking, cutting-edge touchscreen deadbolt that elevates the design and security of residential door locks by merging a sleek and modern exterior, a small all-metal interior, and advanced mechanical and electronic security features. The removal of the keyway also takes away the threat of “lock-picking” and “lock bumping.”
In the unlikely event the four AA batteries run out of power, backup power can be supplied via a 9V battery.
The keyway-less touchscreen will be launching with the new Z-Wave 500 Series chip, which comes with a number of enhancements including increased wireless range and robustwireless encryption. All of the newly designed Weiser Home Connect productsbeing released in Canada will feature the new Z-Wave 500 Series chip.
Capitalizing on the success of the SmartCode 10, Weiser’s first touchscreen lock, the newZ-Wave-based keyway-less touchscreen features a very responsive, capacitivetouchscreen for keyless entry. The screen senses contact quickly for fast code entry, and will auto-detect a correct code and quickly unlock.
The cool white LED display delivers crisp, high-definition LED illumination, and a dedicated lock button provides the user with convenient and fast one-touch locking.
In addition to the keyway-less touchscreen, Weiser will be releasing more products this year that utilize advanced technology, including:
- Z-Wave Smart Lock Conversion Kit, which will convert mechanical deadbolts – even non-Weiser brands – into connected smart locks.
- New 5-Button Deadbolt, featuring a new modern design, dedicated 1-touch locking, and an all-metal,class leading interior.
- Contemporary SmartCode 10 and SmartCode 10 Touchscreen, modern, contemporary versions of the popular traditional-style deadbolts.
All five products will be available by the end of 2016. Pricing has not yet been determined for these products.
