Kwikset's Smart Locks Join Connects With Control4 Program
After receiving an outpouring of consumer demand, Kwikset has officially announced Control4 compatibility across its two most popular connected locks. The Obsidian Electronic Touchscreen Deadbolt with Home Connect and the contemporary version of the SmartCode 916 Touchscreen Electronic Deadbolt are now recognized as partners in the Connects With Control4 program.
Both locks provide a high level of security, and are now available in new colors, Iron Black and Satin Nickel, providing smart home professionals with additional design choices.
The sleek Obsidian smart lock features a “keyway-less” design, and fast one-touch locking. Eliminating the keyway prevents various break-in threats like “lock picking” and “lock bumping.” Kwikset also recognized the potential of “smudge” attacks from a touchscreen, and implemented its SecureScreen technology into the Obsidian. SecureScreen prevents oily residue from piling up on commonly used numbers to prevent intruders from guessing the code.
