Toronto, ON (June 12, 2023) – Schlage, a leading provider of home security and access solutions for over a century, has officially launched its highly anticipated Schlage Encode Plus™ Smart WiFi Deadbolt in the Canadian market, available for purchase exclusively at The Home Depot. Expanding upon the Schlage Encode platform, Schlage’s newest smart lock innovation offers consumers unparalleled flexibility for even greater convenience and security. The Schlage Encode Plus lock is among the first to support Apple’s latest enhancement to the HomeKit experience with home keys capability, while still offering consumers the robust Schlage experience they’ve come to expect. With home keys in Apple Wallet, consumers can simply tap to unlock the Schlage Encode Plus deadbolt using their iPhone and Apple Watch for easy and secure access to their home.

The Schlage Encode Plus Smart WiFi Deadbolt is the newest device in Schlage’s connected portfolio and one of the first smart lock solutions in the North American market to support Apple’s home keys for iPhone and Apple Watch.

Additionally, the lock is also fully supported by the Schlage Home app.
