With easy installation and programming right at your fingertips, this smart lock provides utility out of the box but when paired with a compatible smart home hub, you can unlock even more convenient and advanced security features.
1. Remote access
Lock or unlock your door no matter where you are in the world. Because the Schlage Connect is powered by Z-wave, you need to pair it with a smart home hub, like Wink, to extend communication with your home’s wi-fi. This allows you to communicate with your lock via the Wink app when you are remote.
2. Receive alerts
Get instant notifications whenever the door is unlocked. Whether it’s peace of mind knowing your kids arrived home on time or keeping tabs on your housekeeper, alerts keep you in-the-know on who’s coming and going from your home throughout the day.
3. Control built-in alarm
Enable or disable the Schlage Connect’s built-in alarm when activity is detected at the door . Instead of changing your alarm settings through the lock itself, Wink makes it even easier to have full control of all the features Schlage Connect has to offer.
4. Easy programming
Add, delete and name user codes from the Wink app. Instead of manually keeping track of all the codes you’ve activated for your lock, Wink makes it simple to get a glimpse of all programmed access codes and allows you to deactivate or change them as needed.
5. Set reminders
Wink can also give you a reminder to remove codes when they are no longer needed . You will still need to go through the steps to delete the access code through the app but reminders give you peace of mind that you won’t forget a code that is no longer needed after a certain period of time making it even easier to manage and maintain multiple codes.
6. Connect your smart lock with other products
Smart homes are most convenient when all your products are working together. If you have other devices connected to your Wink hub, you can set up a Robot so that one action triggers a series of others – like unlocking your front door after 6pm turns the light in your entryway on. Just note that for optimal security, you cannot use the Robot to unlock your deadbolt. Follow the Wink blog to stay up-to-date with added features and get inspired for new smart home routines.
7. Create shortcuts
Both iOS and Android users can enable Wink widgets on their phone to access smart home scenes through the notification center (iPhone) or home screen (Android). This makes it easy to trigger an automation series you use often, like a Goodnight shortcut to power down all your smart devices and lock your doors.
8. Pair your Schlage Connect with Amazon Alexa
Command your Schlage Connect to lock or unlock or check the status of your lock when you pair your Schlage Connect with Amazon Alexa via Wink. Get all the details on what Schlage Connect and Amazon Alexa can do here.
