One of the best ways to get security and advanced features in a Schlage smart lock is by pairing it with a compatible home automation system. The Z-wave Plus enabled Schlage Connect™ Smart Deadbolt works with most Z-Wave smart home hubs, including Samsung SmartThings, allowing you to control the lock from anywhere and freeing you from the hassles of lost keys, getting locked out and hiding a spare where anyone can find it.

 

Here are 10 tasks made easier when you pair your Schlage Connect smart lock with Z-Wave Plus with a Samsung SmartThings hub

1. Remote accessibility

Gone are the days of worrying whether you left the door unlocked when you left home. Simply check the status of your lock through the SmartThings app. If the deadbolt is unlocked, lock it via the app, no matter where you are, without the need to turn around and go home.

2. Smart home routines

SmartThings allows you to create routines that are triggered by a single action. A goodnight routine, for example, locks the doors, closes the garage and turns off all electronics with a single command. Setting up automation with other smart devices is fast and easy since you can do everything straight from your smartphone.

3. Create unique access codes

Use the SmartThings app instead of the lock’s touchscreen to quickly create a code for a family member or trusted friend and disable it when it is no longer needed. You can also receive alerts from SmartThings when your Schlage Connect deadbolt is unlocked with one of the access codes, so you always know who is coming and going.

4. Easily share access codes with visitors via SMS

Once you’ve assigned a new access code to a visitor in the SmartThings app, you can conveniently share that code via SMS. No need for you to leave the app and no need for temporary users to download anything new to gain access.

5. Rename or delete an access code

Can’t find your programming guide or instructions? That’s not a problem because SmartThings allows you to edit and delete access codes all through the app instead of the touchscreen.

6. One convenient place to check the status of all your locks

If you have more than one smart lock installed – at home, a vacation house or an AirBnB property – SmartThings allows you to conveniently check the status of each lock in a single app.

7. Lock all smart locks in one click

Did you leave all your doors unlocked? (You know how forgetful kids can be.) You don’t have to command each Schlage Connect deadbolt to lock one at a time. SmartThings allows you to lock them all with a single tap.

8. Track access codes for multiple locks in one place

Keeping track of all active access codes , whether you have one lock or several, is simple. Easily view which family members and friends have access to which locks all in the app.

9. Receive updates on lock activity

SmartThings offers more peace of mind with your Schlage Connect lock by letting you know precisely when your lock was manually locked or unlocked, if it was unlocked using a code, and when a code was updated or deleted.

10. Pair your smart lock with Amazon Alexa

Add even more convenience to your home automation set-up by pairing an Alexa-enabled device with Samsung SmartThings. Easily check the status of your deadbolt or command it to lock or unlock by asking Alexa.

Once you’ve installed your Schlage Connect Smart Deadbolt on your door, pairing with the SmartThings hub is quick and easy. Get full instructions on how to connect here. If you have any questions along the way, reach out to us on Facebook or Twitter.
