The Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt is a product we’ve been following for a while here at Techaeris, especially since our original review. The smart deadbolt for the smart home has slowly been getting better with Android and iOS support, as well as Alexa integration. Schlage has announced at CES Unveiled that their Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt is getting Google Assistant integration in early Q1 of this year.
“As the Internet of Things continues to innovate rapidly, brands must follow suit,”said Rob Martens, Futurist at Allegion, maker of Schlage Locks. “As IoT platforms emerge, Schlage continues toleadand support consumers’ choice.”
In order to utilize Google Assistant (or Alexa for that matter), users will need to pick up the Schlage Sense Wi-Fi Adapter. The adapter allows both Android and iOS users to remotely access and further utilize their Smart Deadbolt through the free app. With the additional Google Assistant support, the Smart Deadbolt is now compatible with the three big digital assistants which also include Amazon’s Alexa and Apple’s Siri and Homekit integration.
The multi-function Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt contains several convenient features that unlock the true power of a smart home by enabling homeowners to never worry about losing, hiding, carrying or forgetting keys, including:
- 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 check on the lock’s status from anywhere, so you never have to wonder if the front door was left unlocked
- View past activity to see which codes have been used and when
- Update settings and check battery life
- Graded Best in Security, Durability, and Finish, receiving a triple-A — the highest residential grading awarded on the market by the Builders Hardware Manufactures Association (BHMA)
