Kwikset has announced that it will unveil its Kevo Home Connect™ Bridge at ISC West, April 15-17 in Las Vegas.  This all-new bridge device accessory seamlessly integrates the leading Bluetooth-enabled Kevo smart lock with home automation and security systems. The Kevo Home Connect Bridge translates a ZigBee or Z-Wave radio communication to Bluetooth low energy (BLE).  With this new Bridge device, the Kevo lock can be integrated into a range of smart home scenarios such as lighting scenes, thermostat settings, security camera settings, and more.  What's more, the functionality of the Kevo smart lock and mobile app has been expanded to include remote locking and unlocking. Kwikset Kevo is a Bluetooth-enabled smart lock that turns a smartphone into an electronic key (eKey).  With Kevo, users can lock or unlock a door with the touch of a finger, without removing the smartphone from their pocket or purse. And now, with the Kevo Home Connect Bridge, Kevo can provide the added functionality of remote locking and integration with home automation and security systems. The Kevo Home Connect Bridge features a compact design with an LED status indicator, pairing buttons with easy system enrollment, and a 2-prong power supply that plugs into any standard outlet. “This device is an ideal solution for homeowners who want the features and functionality of our innovative Bluetooth-enabled smart lock to be incorporated into their home automation scenarios,” says Keith Brandon, Director of Residential Access Solutions for Kwikset. “It brings even more flexibility and convenience to our award-winning Kevo solution.  What's more, Kevo, working in conjunction with a high-quality home security system, creates a stronger overall security scheme for the homeowner." www.kwikset.com
