It might seem strange to put a smart lock on your back-to-school shopping list, but when you see how it can make the first day back and beyond easier, you’ll wonder why you didn’t get one sooner.
No. 2 pencils, glue, notebooks, smart lock. It might seem strange to put a smart lock on your back-to-school shopping list, but when you see how it can make the first day back and beyond easier, you’ll wonder why you didn’t get one sooner. Here’s how you can make the grade with a Schlage Connect™ Smart Deadbolt and Ring Alarm.
Keyless convenience at their fingertips
With the Schlage Connect Smart Deadbolt, and our other electronic locks, you enjoy new levels of keyless convenience without sacrificing security. That’s because you have the power to create and manage up to 30 unique access codes for trusted family and friends, including your kids, carpool moms and more.
Don’t want to risk your kids losing a spare? This is your solution. They simply unlock the door at the touchscreen with their access code. And when you use a compatible app with the Schlage Connect lock, you can receive notifications when they use that code, so you always know when they get home from school. They never get locked out, and you don’t have to worry about who found the lost key or leave work early to let them in.
Ring in the school year
The Schlage Connect Smart Deadbolt works with a variety of other devices in your home to added convenience and peace of mind. And because we have Schlage Connect locks that work with Zigbee and Z-Wave networks, there’s a secure solution for nearly any home.
One of the newest integrations lets you pair the Z-Wave-certified Schlage Connect Smart Deadbolt with Ring Alarm. You can lock and unlock your door from anywhere, manage access codes and get those alerts we mentioned when a code is entered, all from the Ring App. The app also lets you check your lock’s battery level.
Because the Schlage Connect lock and Ring Alarm work on a Z-Wave ecosystem, they can become part of a greater strategy to improve the security and safety of your home. The Ring Alarm Base Station is compatible with select carbon monoxide and smoke detectors, flood and freeze censors, and motion and contact censors. Don’t forget about voice control, either. Ring also works with Amazon Alexa, so you can simply ask Alexa if your door is locked and tell her to lock or unlock it for you.
Easy installation. Simple setup.
You don’t have to be a genius to upgrade your smart home. All you need to install your Schlage smart lock is a few minutes and a screwdriver. The lock is battery-operated, so there’s no wiring and no need to call a handyman. And synchronizing it with your Ring Alarm is simple as well. Just follow the instructions in the Ring App as it walks you through pairing your devices.
