Technology has come a long way and nowadays there’s an app for everything, and by everything we mean literally…everything. Even the lock on your front door has a corresponding smartphone app for it. This Kwikset Kevo, for example, works off a smartphone app and is the perfect keyless lock for your home.All you need is a Bluetooth Ready smartphone (iPhone 4S/5 currently, but an Android app is on the way) or the key fob that comes with the lock. To operate and unlock the door, just touch it with your smartphone or the key fob. That’s it.
The lock is powered by four AA batteries, will last for a year before it needs battery replacement and will notify you when it’s running out of power. You need to set-up your phone by downloading the free app which gives control over the lock. You can also send eKeys to your friends or family via the app as long as they also have a compatible smartphone with the app installed.
Kwikset Kevo comes in 3 different colors and will be released on October 31st. You can pre-order it for $219 via Amazon.
