Debuts Kwikset HomeKit-Compatible Premis Smart Door Lock
Premis joins Kwiksets Kevo Smart Lock at the CES for 2016 with the launch of it's first HomeKit-compatible product. Joining the Schlage Sense, the Premis is one of two smart locks available that work with Apple's HomeKit platform. This versitle platform can be used in Scenes and Trigger along with other HomeKit products. Able to respont to Siri voice commands, you now have voice control over a home or business front door lock.
"Kwikset closely listens to feedback and monitors new technologies to develop products that meet consumer needs," said Keith Brandon, Vice President of Residential Access Solutions, Kwikset. "Premis was specifically developed to work with Apple HomeKit, a simple and secure smart home technology we truly believe in and are excited to support."
Another great feature is the ability to pair HomeKit Premis with a third-generation Apple TV or later. The Premis can be used remotely to lock or unlock the door to let guests inside; and you the home or business owner can also assign up to 30 unique user codes to guests of your choice for them to use if you are on vacation, a trip, or out of town on business.
Premis also has an app that can be used to schedule guest codes for specific times, and lets users keep an eye on lock status, check battery life, and you can receive notifications when the lock is used. It's never been so easy to be away with eyes on capability.
The Premis design features an LED display and capacitive touchscreen that's used to input guest codes, plus there's a standard keyhole for manual operation. Premis runs on four AA batteries and Kwikset says installation can be done with a screwdriver and a ruler.
Keep and eye out for this fabulous new product. Kwikset's Premis will be available for purchase later in 2016. Pricing information is not yet available but let us know here at Texas Safe and Lock if you are interested in finding out more now.
