Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt adds Alexa support

Press Releases

Schlage has been adding smarts to their locks for the last few years. Adding smarts onto their tradition of quality locks has given new life and functionality to the standard deadbolt. After announcing Android support for the Schlage Sense back in August, today the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt will be adding support for Amazon’s Alexa digital assistant.

The new Alexa integration will allow users to add the Schlage Sense skill to their Echo hardware, and check the status of their door as well as lock or unlock the deadbolt with their voice. Users can also create multi-step routines that let other smart devices interact with one another. For example, a “good night” routine might turn off the lights, lock the deadbolt, and adjust the thermostat, or any other compatible skills and hardware combinations.

Alexa support should be rolling out now, so if you’ve already got a Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt of your own, be sure to check for that update.

Schlage Announces Amazon Alexa Integration for its Schlage Sense™ Smart Deadbolt

One of the Most Versatile Smart Locks on the Market is Now Compatible with Amazon Alexa, Apple HomeKit and Android

Carmel, Ind. (Oct. 31, 2017) – Schlage®, a brand of Allegion that has been creating stylish, innovative door hardware for more than 95 years, continues to bolster its portfolio of stylish and high-tech smart lock solutions by integrating the Schlage Sense™ Smart Deadbolt with Amazon Alexa. The Schlage Sense skill adds layers of functionality to the Schlage Sense smart lock. In addition to Apple HomeKit™ and Android™ smartphone compatibility, consumers can now utilize Alexa-enabled devices, such as the Amazon Echo or Echo Plus, to verbally lock or check the status of their front door.

The Schlage Sense skill allows users to lock and check the status of their door via Alexa-enabled devices and the Alexa app. The Alexa app also allows users to leverage multi-step routines that prompt Alexa-enabled devices to interact with one another. For example, a user can create a “good night” routine, which will trigger the front door to lock and the lights to turn off. If a visitor is arriving, customers can creates a “hello” routine that will turn on the lights, adjust the thermostat, and relock the door. These routines can be activated by speaking to Alexa or through the Alexa app.

The Schlage Sense Wi-Fi Adapter acts as the connecting link between the lock and Alexa, eliminating the need to purchase a central hub. This seamless connection makes the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt an ideal option for consumers who are not quite ready for a full-scale smart home, but would like to experience the convenience and benefits these solutions offer. Consumers who seek a robust smart home solution can opt for the Schlage Connect™ Touchscreen Deadbolt, which integrates with Amazon Alexa through Wink or Samsung SmartThings. The Wi-Fi Adapter, a small wall plug-in that must be placed within 40 feet of the smart lock, provides added functionality, such as allowing consumers to access their locks from anywhere in the world, directly through the Schlage Sense app.

“For nearly a century, Schlage has strived to provide consumers with the strongest, most secure locks on the market,” said Rob Martens, Futurist and Vice President of Strategy and Partnerships for Allegion, maker of Schlage locks. “In recent years, we have upped the ante, committing ourselves to creating innovative, convenient and accessible smart locks. We are proud of this new integration, as it makes the Schlage Sense one of the most versatile smart locks on the market, perfect for consumers who keep safety, security and style top of mind.”

The Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt is easy to set up and use thanks to the dedicated, free app, which is available to Android™ phone users through the Google Play store and Apple users through the App Store. With no connection to an existing home automation system or monthly subscription charge, the free app allows you to:

  • Create and delete up to 30 unique access codes so trusted friends and family can enter using their code at the lock’s touchscreen
  • Schedule access codes so guests can only enter when you want them to
  • Use the Wi-Fi Adapter to lock and unlock from anywhere, check on the lock’s status and receive push notifications when the lock is used
