Review: Kwikset’s new iPhone-compatible ‘Kevo’ keyless deadbolt lock
Home automation is getting more and more affordable, as well as flexible. Where a lot of systems tie you into using their infrastructure, we’re seeing a lot of wifi enabled devices which make setup and installation a snap. The Kevo uses Bluetooth LE in an effort to balance the ease of use with security, and seems to do a good job–at $219.
The home automation sector’s move to the mainstream has introduced consumers to innovative new products from startups and industry stalwarts alike, one being the Kevo lock from Kwikset, a Bluetooth-enabled, touch-activated smart lock that lets owners use their iPhone as a door key.
