Schlage will preview new capabilities for its Schlage LiNK home-management system at the Consumer Electronics Show 2010 in Las Vegas that allow Schlage wireless keypad locks to be integrated with residential security systems offering central monitoring.
The Schlage LiNK System (see also our review) includes a wireless lock or deadbolt and is built around Z-Wave® technology, enabling homeowners to lock and unlock doors, monitor live camera feeds, and control temperature, lighting and other Z-Wave-enabled devices from any computer and most Web-enabled mobile phones, including Apple’s iPhone and RIM’s BlackBerry smartphones.
Schlage will demonstrate how its wireless keypad locks can be integrated into a comprehensive home-security solution that works with a variety of security control panels, all through the Alarm.com platform. Consumers seeking a security system that works with Schlage’s wireless locks will be able to use the Alarm.com platform, which integrates professional security monitoring services provided by third party central stations with Alarm.com’s easy-to-use Web and mobile security and monitoring tools. The demonstrations will also highlight integration with other Z-Wave-enabled devices, including lighting and the Trane Remote Energy Management Thermostat. Network cameras and a remote control that can be used to "enroll" Z-Wave devices into the system will also be shown.
Interactive home security and monitoring systems that incorporate Schlage wireless locks will be available later this year through Alarm.com’s nationwide network of licensed security dealers.
The Schlage LiNK System can support up to 232 Z-Wave devices, all of which would be covered under one $12.99 per month subscription fee. The Starter Kit ($299) provides everything needed to set up a wireless Z-Wave network at home, including one Schlage wireless deadbolt or lever lock, the Schlage Bridge, which connects to the home’s existing router and enables wireless control of the system, and a Z-Wave light module. Deadbolts and locks are available in satin nickel, aged bronze and bright brass finishes.
