A 2013 Electronic House Product of the Year award winner, Allegion’s Touchscreen Deadbolt by Schlage provides the security and technology that today’s technologically-savvy, upscale consumers expect. As the resident touches the screen, the numbers illuminate with a soft blue light, making the lock easy to use at night. With every tap of a number, a reassuring green checkmark icon flashes with each button press, confirming that the input has registered; if you choose, an accompanying beep can be heard. Intruders can’t “read” the screen to get the code because the touchscreen is fingerprint-resistant; ensuring that access code numbers won’t wear and become detectable even after repeated use.
A touchscreen lock offers keyless control using simple access codes. Residents will never have to worry about losing, hiding, carrying or forgetting their keys again. The Touchscreen Deadbolt automatically locks and unlocks when they enter their own four-digit user codes. A warning beep will alert them when the deadbolt isn’t fully extended into the door jamb and how the door will relock any time its left open.
This lock holds up to 30 unique access codes and is designed to support temporary codes for their convenience. They could provide different codes to each child, set of parents or very good friends. When connected to a home-automation system, residents can tailor lock codes to specific days and times of the week to provide access only when scheduled. For instance, the cleaning service could have its own code, which lets them in during the times they choose. For a senior citizen, they could provide the food delivery service with their own code that works only during the time periods that they choose.
Not only that, a built-in alarm technology will let your residents hear instantly when someone goes in or out the door, tampers with the door lock or tries to break into the home through the door. There's also an "Activity" mode, in which the lock will beep twice when the door is opened or closed. Residents can set the motion-sensing alarm to one of these settings. The level of sensitivity can be adjusted for all modes or the resident can choose to turn them off altogether.
The Touchscreen Deadbolt delivers an American National Standards Institute (ANSI) grade 1 security rating, the highest residential rating awarded on the market, as certified by the Builder Hardware Manufacturers Association (BHMA).
