A Trusted Solution for Apple’s New Home Keys Experience
Schlage expands its connected portfolio in the North American market to provide Apple consumers with a safe and secure home access solution that works with the recently released home keys feature.
LAS VEGAS (January 7, 2022) – Schlage, a leading provider of home security and access solutions for over a century, virtually announced this week the Schlage Encode Plus™ Smart WiFi Deadbolt at the 2022 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) held from January 3-7. 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.
“Throughout our 100-year history, we have remained committed to revolutionizing the user experience with convenient and secure home access our customers can trust,” said Dave Ilardi, general manager at Schlage, a brand of Allegion. “We’re excited about our collaboration with Apple that brings together two highly regarded brands with a history and reputation for delivering innovation to the connected home. The Schlage Encode Plus Smart WiFi Deadbolt provides homeowners with an even simpler and secure way to access their homes. This is just another step in our vision to create purposeful experiences that deliver simplicity and peace of mind.”
The Schlage Encode Plus Smart WiFi Deadbolt is the newest device in Schlage’s connected portfolio and the first smart lock solution in the North American market to support Apple’s home keys for iPhone and Apple Watch. With a Schlage Home Key in Apple Wallet, homeowners don’t even need to unlock their iPhone or Apple Watch to open their lock, and with Power Reserve1, even if the iPhone needs to be charged, they may still be able to tap to unlock for up to five hours after their iPhone battery runs out. Additionally, the lock is also fully supported by the Schlage Home app.
The same unique and highly rated features developed with Schlage’s original WiFi-enabled lock are available through the Schlage Home app:
