Kwikset Unveils New Keyway Touchscreen at ISC West 2016

Kwikset will unveil the company’s first keyway-less touchscreen deadbolt at ISC West 2016 in Las Vegas, April 6-8.

The sleek, low profile touchscreen is the centerpiece of five new residential door locks being introduced at the show.

Eliminating the keyway has allowed Kwikset to create what the company calls “a visually striking, cutting-edge touchscreen deadbolt” that merges a sleek and modern exterior, a small all-metal interior, and advanced mechanical and electronic security features.  The removal of the keyway also takes away the threat of “lock-picking” and “lock bumping.” In the unlikely event the four AA batteries run out of power, backup power can be supplied via a 9V battery.

The keyway-less touchscreen will be launching with the new Z-Wave 500 Series chip, which comes with a number of enhancements including increased wireless range and robust wireless encryption.  In fact, all five Kwikset products being introduced at ISC West will feature the new Z-Wave 500 Series chip.
