Kwikset, the leader in residential security, announces that its line of SmartCode™ deadbolt locks is now compatible with Legrand’s Intuity home automation platform, part of the On-Q line. SmartCode locks with Home Connect™ technology are the industry’s leading wireless access control lock solution for the smart home.
Home Automation Security Solutions
Legrand’s Intuity System brings together a wide array of stand-alone home technologies and devices into a unified ecosystem that provides simple home control of lighting, security, temperature, multi-room audio, and more. The Intuity System gives homebuilders and installers a cost-effective, modular and repeatable solution for controlling security, entertainment and comfort within the home. Market-leading, Z-Wave powered components compatible with Intuity include SmartCode locks from Kwikset, HVAC thermostats from Honeywell® and Trane®, and home security systems from Honeywell® and GE/Interlogix®.
Kwikset’s line of innovative SmartCode home automation security solutions includes its highly popular SmartCode™ 914 Touchpad Electronic Deadbolt, with its best-in-class reduced interior size. It also includes the SmartCode™ 916 Touchscreen Electronic Deadbolt, which provides all the features of SmartCode – including keyless entry – combined with the added convenience and enhanced aesthetics of a capacitive touchscreen, and the Secure Screen™ feature that helps guard against “smudge” attacks.
“The beauty of Intuity’s design is its ability to provide value for the builder through its comprehensive, easy-to-use and easy-to install digital platform,” said Fritz Werder, VP & General Manager for Legrand’s On-Q and NuVo lines. “Kwikset’s SmartCode line, with its unique features and functionality, enhances the usefulness, convenience and security of the Intuity system.”
Easy Communication With Wireless Products
“Our innovative SmartCode deadbolt locks are a natural fit for Legrand’s home automation solution,” said Keith Brandon, Vice President of Residential Access Solutions for Kwikset. “More homeowners are making connectivity a priority in their homes, and homebuilders are looking to differentiate their inventory from the competition with advanced technology like our SmartCode line.”
Kwikset’s SmartCode deadbolts and levers with Home Connect™ technology integrate with home security and automation systems, allowing the locks to communicate with other wireless products in the home such as security systems and home entertainment systems.
Other features of Kwikset’s SmartCode locks with Home Connect technology include: Kwikset’s patented SmartKey® Re-key Technology, that allows homeowners to re-key their locks in seconds without having to remove the lock from the door; BumpGuard™ technology that protects homeowners from lock bumping; the ease of one-touch locking; and the ability to integrate with the widest variety of wireless security and home automation platforms in the industry.
Legrand’s Intuity System simplifies installation and scalability with modular components that are housed inside a structured wiring enclosure as part of the home’s wiring infrastructure. Intuity’s brain is its HA7000 Automation Controller, which in addition to providing basic Internet connectivity also directly supports Legrand subsystems, such as digital audio, intercom, and IP security cameras. All these subsystem modules mount inside the enclosure and plug directly in the Central Control Module.
