Schlage, the company famous for dead bolts and locks, has a new lock that integrates with home automation systems that use Z-Wave. The lock is very cool and can be unlocked like a normal device with a key or it can be opened with a keypad.

The Schlage LiNK deadbolts offer keyless entry into your home with a 4-digit access code that can be entered, activated, deleted, or disabled on the locks 11-digit push button keypad. The coolest aspect of the lock is that you can access a special website that allows you to unlock the deadbolt from any web enabled phone or device.

The LiNK deadbolt can also be configured to send an email or text message to the homeowner when specific user codes are entered into the lock. The feature can be used to notify parents when a child gets home or leaves as well as notify when a repairman shows up and uses a special one-time code to gain access to the home. The online app uses SSL and AEC 128 bit encryption to protect the codes. The lock is available now and a starter kit is priced at $299. The biggest rub is that Schlage expects users who want to be able to open the lock via the online portal to pay a $12.99 monthly fee.
