    Back-to-school is an exciting time, but it can be overwhelming, too. Do the kids have all their supplies? Who’s in charge of transporting them to and from practice? Will they be able to get in the house after being dropped off after school? We can’t help much with algebra homework (maybe our engineers can), but we can take some of the stress out of the schoolyear. Just lock onto the keyless convenience and peace of mind of the Schlage Encode™ Smart WiFi Deadbolt.

    Convenience for the kids. Peace of mind for you.

    Everyone is busy this time of year, so why not take a few things off your plate? Start with home security. Control who can and can’t gain access to your house with a Schlage smart lock. With the industry’s best ratings in Security, Durability and Finish, the Schlage Encode Smart WiFi Deadbolt helps keep intruders out and you and your family safe. And with keyless entry – you can create and manage up to 100 unique access codes – your kids won’t have a spare key to lose or forget.

     

    Keyless convenience isn’t just for the kids, though. Create a code for childcare you arrange to stay with the kids after school or for trusted carpool parents dropping them off.

     

    The Schlage Encode Smart WiFi Deadbolt offers remote access from anywhere. As long as it’s connected to the internet, you can use a compatible app on your smartphone to check if you remembered to lock up before you left home and see an activity log of when codes are used so you know when your kids got home at the end of the day. If someone does lose a key or forgets their code, you can grant access from your phone for one-time use or create a new code for them, all from your office, the grocery store or while sitting in traffic.

     

    If you’re thinking, “That sounds great, but I never know how to make these smart products work in my home,” never fear. The Schlage Encode deadbolt has built-in WiFi. That means there are no additional hubs or accessories necessary to gain remote access. It connects directly to your home WiFi network just as your laptop does. And because security is our business, we use the same encryption technology used in online shopping to protect your personal data.

     

    Start school with a smart combination

    When integrating with other smart home products is important to you – who doesn’t love additional features? – try the Schlage Encode Smart WiFi Deadbolt with Ring™ Video Doorbell 2. You can still check the status of your lock via the Schlage® Home app, but with the Ring app, you can also see live streaming video of activity on your porch, speak with guests through your phone and unlock the door for trusted visitors.

     

    The Key by Amazon app is also an exciting part of this bundle. As an Amazon Prime user, when you combine your Schlage Encode lock with Key by Amazon, you could opt in to in-home delivery and have packages left inside your front door. If you’re not in one of the select cities that offers in-home delivery or choose not to grant access, you can still use the Ring Doorbell to see when packages are delivered thanks to the camera.

     

    You can easily add both the Schlage Encode Smart WiFi Deadbolt and Ring Video Doorbell to your home before back-to-school or at any time of year. Installation for the deadbolt requires just a screwdriver and a few minutes’ time. Plus, both devices are battery operated, so there’s no wiring and no electrician necessary.

     

    Make the grade this back-to-school season with the Schlage Encode Smart WiFi Deadbolt and Ring Video Doorbell, the simple and smart solution for securing your home and family. Learn more about this smart lock at Schlage.com or explore other options with our Get Help Deciding Tool.

    As smart locks offer more and improved features, they’re becoming increasingly popular options for securing homes of all kinds. And unlike mechanical locks where you might need to carry a different set of keys for every door, managing a smart lock doesn’t get more difficult just because you have more than one. How is this possible? With the Schlage Home app.

    Why would I have multiple smart locks?

    Schlage smart locks are intelligent solutions for all types of entryways. If you already own one smart lock, you know about the keyless convenience and peace of mind it provides. But whether you’re looking to add more smart security or are just now considering taking the plunge into electronic locks, imagine the combination of possibilities.

     

    • Multiple locks on the same home, like both the front and back doors, or the front door and garage entry

    • Your parents’ house, perfect for when you’re caring for older family members aging in place

    • A rental property, whether it’s nearby or in another state

    • A private entrance for house-sharing guests at your own home

    What can the Schlage Home app control?

    The Schlage Home app works with the Schlage Encode™ Smart WiFi Deadbolt and the Schlage Sense™ Smart Deadbolt. Whether you have one of each, two Schlage Encode locks or a pair of Schlage Sense locks in different locations, you can use a single Schlage Home app to set up and control them all.

    How do I keep my smart locks organized?

    Using the Schlage Home app, you assign a unique name to each lock during setup. For example, you might choose “Home Front Door,” or “Guest Entrance” if you have a dedicated entryway specifically for home-share guests. It might be “Mom’s Front Door” if you have access to your parents’ home or “Beach House” for your vacation rental.

     

    Whatever names you choose, we recommend keeping them as easy-to-remember as possible, particularly if you’re managing multiple locks. You don’t want a confusing name to cause you to accidentally change a setting on the wrong deadbolt.

    How do I create or change my smart locks’ names?

    You will be asked to choose and enter the name of your lock during the deadbolt’s setup process with the Schlage Home app. To change it later, choose the lock you would like to update from your Schlage Home app’s main screen. Go to Settings, found by tapping the gear icon in the lower left corner. From the list, select Name, then type in the new identifying title for your deadbolt and select Done.

     

    There’s so much more you can do with your Schlage Home app, regardless of whether you have one, two or even three locks. Lock or unlock your door from anywhere, create and manage multiple access codes, customize push notifications for when an access code is used or when a disturbance is detected at the door, and change auto-lock timing or other settings. All of this is done simply and conveniently from the palm of your hand.

    How do I access my smart locks from anywhere?

    Because the Schlage Encode lock features built-in WiFi, you can access your lock from anywhere using the Schlage Home app with no need to purchase an additional accessory.

     

    In order to communicate with the Schlage Sense lock, you’ll need either the Schlage Sense WiFi Adapter or, for Apple HomeKit users, an Apple TV/iPad. Use these tips to choose the accessory that’s right for you and control your Schlage Sense deadbolt remotely and conveniently.

    Schlage’s reputation for innovation continues with the introduction of our first smart lock that connects directly to your home’s WiFi network. The Schlage Encode™ Smart WiFi Deadbolt is the ideal smart lock for homes that want a secure and stylish option that is also simple to use.
    Quite: Peace of mind from anywhere
    By eliminating the need for external adapters or costly subscriptions, the Schlage Encode WiFi Deadbolt offers the features that matter most to homeowners, including smartphone control through the Schlage Home app or Key by Amazon app, advanced encrypted security, up to 100 unique access codes and a variety of designs and finishes to complement your décor.

    Convenience at your doorstep

    The Schlage Home app supports the Schlage Encode WiFi Deadbolt, meaning that even if you choose to use the Key by Amazon app, you still will receive free firmware updates to your lock. That means you won’t have to replace the deadbolt to take advantage of the newest features. You can also lock or unlock your door, manage and schedule access codes, and customize notifications – all the features you expect from a Schlage smart home solution.

     

    The Schlage Encode WiFi Deadbolt also works with leading smart home technologies, including Key by Amazon. When paired with the Amazon Cloud Cam (Key edition), Prime members in select cities and surrounding areas can opt-in to in-home delivery. Amazon delivers your package right inside your doorway, and Amazon locks up on the way out. And for extra peace of mind, the smart home solution offers visual verifications so you can watch video clips of who enters and exits your home through the Key by Amazon app.

     

    According to Devin Love, Schlage’s Director of Technology Alliances, “It is really important to our customers that they know what works with what. System compatibility, getting the right products that work in concert with other and system security – these are all factors in our development and design of smart-lock technologies like the Schlage Encode Smart WiFi Deadbolt.”

    Works with Alexa, Google and your family

    When connected to a compatible device, users can control the Schlage Encode Smart WiFi Deadbolt ¬with their voices. Convenience and peace of mind from anywhere are just a voice command away.

     

    Ask Alexa to lock or unlock your door with Key by Amazon when you enable the Alexa skill. You can also check the status of your lock, so there’s no wondering whether you locked up when you left the house. Google Assistant users can also check the status of their Schlage Encode Smart WiFi Deadbolt, as well as say, “Hey Google, lock my door,” when it’s paired with the Schlage Home app.

     

    “Just say the word,” says Devin Love. “Voice has become such a powerful and convenient way to interact with one’s smart home that we’ve incorporated that functionality with all of our top smart lock products. It’s all about making the smart home smarter.”
