No more digging for keys?? Yes please!
I am a big fan of my new Ford Focus with keyless entry and push start. My hands are always filled with a huge Samsung phone, my bottomless purse and tons of paperwork, all of which makes finding my keys a daunting task to say the least 😉 So this new technology for home security seems awesome for me!
The Kevo turns any Bluetooth 4.0-enabled device into a key that recognizes you are in proximity and unlocks your deadbolt at the touch of your finger. Another cool feature is you can send temporary or permanent eKeys to family, friends and neighbors.
You can buy them at many retailers… one example is Home Depot for $249.99. Here is what they say:
With Kevo, your Smartphone is now your key. No more fumbling for your keys. Keep your phone in your pocket or purse and just touch the lock to open. No Smartphone? No Problem. Enjoy the same touch to open convenience with the fob. You can send an electronic key (eKey) to family, friends, or visitors who have a compatible Smartphone so they can use their phone as a key too. Receive notifications of lock activity and manage the lock and eKeys with the Kevo Mobile App. In addition to the convenience, Kevo is incredibly secure. You can add, delete or disable eKeys from the mobile app or utilize the Lost Phone Reset should the unthinkable happen. The SmartKey® deadbolt cylinder provides peace of mind for a backup traditional key and offers superior security against lock picking and bumping.
