Schlage Gains New Google Home Capabilities

CARMEL, Ind., May 29, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — Schlage, maker of stylish and innovative door hardware, today announced an enhancement to its Internet of Things (IoT) portfolio: compatibility with Google Home for the critically-acclaimed Schlage Sense™ Smart Deadbolt. This integration demonstrates Schlage’s commitment to offering homeowners the best user experience possible alongside more than 95 years of experience in the safety and security industry.

Schlage’s Google Assistant compatibility was announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in January, and now homeowners can access their Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt using Google Assistant. This functionality can be activated by saying, “OK Google, lock my door” or “OK Google, is my door locked?” The convenience of Google Assistant will also extend to Android™ phones or the Google Assistant app on Apple® devices.

Using the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt with Google Assistant-enabled devices will require the Schlage Sense™ Wi-Fi Adapter (sold separately). The Wi-Fi Adapter allows iOS and Android smartphone users to gain remote access to their lock through the Schlage Sense app with no monthly fee required.

“Schlage has been at the forefront of IoT security solutions since launching the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt in 2014,” said Rob Martens, futurist at Allegion, the maker of Schlage® locks. “This new integration and functionality is a testament to our ongoing commitment to raise the bar for innovation, convenience and security and to support consumers’ choice of IoT platform.”

The multi-function Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt contains several convenient features that unlock the true power of a smart home by enabling homeowners to never worry about losing, hiding, carrying or forgetting keys, including:

  • Create and delete up to 30 unique access codes so trusted friends and family can enter using their codes at the lock’s touchscreen;
  • Schedule access codes so guests can only enter when you allow;
  • Pair with the Schlage Sense Wi-Fi Adapter to check on the lock’s status from anywhere, so you never have to wonder if the front door was left unlocked;
  • View past activity to see which codes have been used and when;
  • Update settings and check battery life; and
  • Graded Best in Residential Security, Durability and Finish from the Builders Hardware Manufactures Association (BHMA).
