Comcast Adds Three Kwikset Door Locks to the Works with Xfinity Program
Today, Comcast announced that it has expanded its partnership with the Kwikset brand of Spectrum Brands, Inc. and has integrated three additional best-in-class smart locks into its Works with Xfinity program. Now, Xfinity Home customers can choose from four Kwikset door locks with Home Connect technology to remotely control access into and out of their homes.
“For many of our customers, connected door locks can help provide peace of mind and save time during the course of their day,” said Neal Foster, vice president of product management for Xfinity Home. “With Kwikset’s connected door locks and the Xfinity platform, our customers never have to turn the car around to see if the doors are locked, leave work because a child forgot their key, or run downstairs after bedtime to check to see if the doors are locked. Additionally, customers who have a video camera will be able to monitor guests or service professionals when they lock and unlock their front, back or side doors from anywhere, which provides the convenience of granting access to a guest or service professional when they can’t be home.”
According to Parks Associates, nearly a million smart door locks will be sold in 2017 and they are forecasted to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 15.5% to 1.7 million units by 2021.
