    Schlage - door locks

    The ability to easily update your locks, knobs and levers can actually simplify your life.

     

    READ MORE

    There are several areas in life where it pays to be flexible: projects at work, flight schedules, potty training. Adapting to change reduces a lot of everyday headaches. The same goes for door hardware, where the ability to easily update your locks, knobs and levers can actually simplify your life.

    Style switch

    Design trends change and so does your taste in style. When what you think is gorgeous one moment falls flat when you redesign a room later, you want a quick and simple way to update your look. Schlage Custom Door Hardware is easy to install in minutes with just a screwdriver and it fits on all standard doors, so there’s no need to drill new holes or take on a major DIY project just to refresh the look. And with styles ranging from traditional to contemporary, classic glass knobs to modern levers, and a variety of finishes, you’ll be able to capture the perfect style for any room.

     

    Not sure what that perfect style is yet? Try our Style Selector to find your new look.

    Life moments

    Insurance companies call it a change of life event – you get married, you have a baby, something major happens that alters your needs. In the world of home décor, a man cave becomes a nursery or a home office transitions to a bedroom when an elderly parent moves in. When this happens, you might need to update the privacy function of your door – more on that in a minute. You should also consider what kind of knobs or levers you need. If someone now in the home has arthritis, would a lever be easier to use than a knob that requires gripping and turning? Or maybe a knob in a style that goes better with baby’s new room than a man’s retreat is in order.

     

    Don’t forget that your can also easily update exterior door hardware as your life changes. If your teen now has after-school activities and a busy social calendar, consider a Schlage smart lock like the Schlage Sense™ Smart Deadbolt, Schlage Connect™ Smart Deadbolt or the new Schlage Encode™ Smart WiFi Deadbolt. They offer convenience and peace of mind thanks to features like the ability to lock or unlock your door from anywhere. Assign access codes to individuals so there’s no more hiding, or losing, spare keys. You can also monitor who is coming and going from your home, so you’ll know if someone got in before curfew.

    Function

    Remember the privacy function we talked about? If you’re updating a space from a hobby room to a bedroom, for example, you probably want to be able to lock the door. Schlage Custom Door Hardware offers combined interior functionality, meaning it’s easy to switch from a door with the ability to lock for more privacy to one that doesn’t lock. Simply insert the privacy pin and rotate to change the function. There’s no need to replace the entire lock, so whether you want your guests to be able to enjoy some privacy in their bedroom or you don’t want your kids to be able to lock themselves in their own room, we have you covered.

You don’t have to worry about them losing or forgetting their keys and you can monitor them coming and going on your phone.

    Patio Door

    Are you at work on a busy Monday morning and find yourself wondering if you locked the door to the patio after Sunday’s barbecue with the neighbors? Talk about needing peace of mind. With select smart locks, you can check the status of your door locks using your phone. Confirm who last unlocked the door and lock it again for good measure, all from anywhere you happen to be: the office, the gym, the grocery store, wherever.

    Schlage Connect - Ring Alarm
    If you’re looking to make your home more secure affordably and conveniently, we have good news for you. Schlage, together with the home security innovators at Ring, is giving you the ability to monitor your home 24/7 from just about anywhere using your smartphone. Say hello to a new wave of DIY smart home security.

    Convenience on your doorstep

    Schlage and Ring are leading the way with cross-compatible technologies that work together seamlessly to address home security challenges. The Ring Alarm Base Station operates on a Z-Wave mesh network. That means that the Z-Wave-certified Schlage Connect™ Smart Deadbolt and the Ring Alarm work on a single, integrated network, simplifying the process of making smart homes more secure and convenient.

     

    How can synching Ring Alarm with your Z-Wave enabled, Schlage Connect™ Smart Deadbolt add convenience and security to your life? After pairing the devices, you can lock and unlock your door from anywhere, add or remove access codes, and get alerts when a code is entered, all from one spot – the Ring App. You can also check your lock’s battery level via the Ring App.

     

    Ring Alarm, with its Z-Wave ecosystem and cloud-based app, is currently compatible with a range of in-home devices taking home security customization to another level. Including the Schlage Connect, you can also pair your Ring Alarm Base Station with compatible carbon dioxide and smoke detectors, flood and freeze censors, and motion and contact censors. If you’re looking for the added convenience of voice activation, Ring also works with Amazon Alexa. Now you can simply ask Alexa if your door is locked, or ask her to lock or unlock it for you.

     

    Simply secure

    The possibilities of a secure smart home are growing rapidly, but don’t let this intimidate you. Adding these security capabilities to your home is simple, especially with Schlage’s easy installation. Schlage smart locks are designed to fit standard doors without the need to drill additional holes and can be installed with just a screwdriver. Because they’re battery operated, there’s also no need for wiring or to call an electrician.

     

    Setup is just as convenient with quick and easy system synchronization between the Schlage Connect smart deadbolt and your Ring Alarm. Simply follow the instructions in the Ring App to pair your devices.

    Bring it home

    Do you already have a Z-Wave-compatible Schlage Connect smart lock and want to add it to a new Ring Alarm? Do you already have a Ring Alarm system and are interested in adding a smart lock to improve the security of your home? Maybe you’re starting your DIY project from scratch and are looking to add both? Visit our product pages to learn more about the Schlage Connect™ Smart Deadbolt and find a retailer near you.

    While Schlage Connect Z-Wave and Z-Wave Plus are popular choices to pair with Ring Alarm, any of our Z-Wave-connected products will work with the home security system. This includes Schlage keypad levers, which also make a great option for the entryway from your garage to your house, extending your Ring of Security even further.

    Smart locks - Weatherproof - Schlage

    Are smart locks waterproof? What happens when the power goes out? Here’s what you need to know.

     

    READ MORE

    Smart locks - Weatherproof - Schlage

    Some of us love winter weather, and others are already counting down the days until spring. When the temperatures drop, and the snow and ice hit your door, you want your lock to be ready, even if you aren’t.

     

    When it comes to holding up to the weather, Schlage Connect™ Smart Deadbolt and Schlage Sense™ Smart Deadbolt, as well as Schlage Touch™ Keyless Touchscreen Deadbolt and Schlage Keypad Deadbolt, are designed to exceed, and have been validated to function, beyond industry certification requirements.

     

    We do not recommend our smart locks be used on outdoor gates or on doors in which the lock’s interior housing is completely exposed to the elements. However, we consistently work to bring you quality products so that you know you’re getting the convenient features and peace of mind, no matter what elements your house faces.

    Tried and tested

    Your electronic lock’s exterior components, which are often exposed to the harshest elements, are tested against:

     

    • Extreme temperatures, including icing or freezing conditions (as low as approximately -22 degrees Fahrenheit depending on the lock) and high heat (up to 150 degrees Fahrenheit)
    • High humidity and condensing humidity
    • Rain
    • Coastal environment conditions

    Peace of mind

    Additional features provide an extra layer of confidence for when the worst weather strikes.

     

    • Battery operated: All of Schlage’s keyless locks run on battery power, so if the power goes out, you’re still protected. You won’t be locked out and those who shouldn’t have access to your home won’t gain it just because ice pulled down a power line.
    • Back-lit numbers: Whether the power goes down or the sun has just set early, you’ll never be left fumbling in the dark to unlock your door.
    • Glove-friendly: No need to remove your mittens. Touchscreens and keypads work even if they’re wet from rain and when you’re wearing gloves.

    Protection beyond the weather

    Of course, not all elements are a result of Mother Nature. We know security depends on your lock working in all kinds of conditions. That’s why we also test our smart locks in construction-based environments, such as pressure washing, fluid spills and dust.

     

    Schlage smart locks are backed by a three-year electronics warranty and a limited lifetime mechanical and finish warranty. With our successful testing, you can be as confident as we are in your security and style year-round, rain or shine, snow or heat.

    To find out if a Schlage smart lock will work well for your home and climate, reach out to us on Facebook or contact our customer support team for help.

    Quality Door Locks - Schlage Custom

    When shopping for new home good items, it pays to understand when it’s worth saving and when it’s worth the splurge.

     

    READ MORE

    When shopping for new home good items, it pays to understand when it’s worth saving and when it’s worth the splurge. Take coffeemakers for example. If we use them every day, it might be worth paying a little extra for a model that not only is going to last but also will save you time and money in the long run. If your coffeemaker turns out to be sub-par, you’ll ultimately end up spending more on a replacement or by heading to the coffee shop. So much for savings.

     

    What does this have to do with door hardware?

     

    You won’t want to give up coffee cold turkey because your at-home maker isn’t up to snuff, nor will you stop wanting to lock your doors for the same reason. Do your research and think about the following factors when considering the move up to the next tier of locks and door hardware. They might make you re-think defaulting to the lowest price.

    Quality door locks - Eller Lever - Schlage Custom

    Durability

    You’re going to use your locks every day, and it’s important that they work every time. With Schlage, you can be assured that not only will your locks and door hardware last for years to come - reducing the need for frequent replacements - but they’ll also help protect your home throughout their lifespan.

     

    Nearly all of Schlage’s mechanical hardware and electronic deadbolts, levers and knobs are rated best in security, durability and finish by BHMA. Testing shows that our hardware is resistant to the toughest environmental and weather conditions, and levers hold up under heavy weight, so you know you’re covered when a child hangs on them. Premium metal construction also provides a quality you can actually feel.

     

    Our smart locks also feature the same type of encryption used in online purchases and built-in alarm technology to consistently protect what’s most important to you.

     

    Similar products: Toilet plungers and car tires. You probably won’t find out that they aren’t working until it’s already a problem. And you definitely don’t want that.

    Quality door locks - BHMA grading - Schlage

    Style

    You’re going to look at your door hardware every day. Front-door locks and hardware are some of the first things guests will see, so you might want something visually appealing that also matches the style of your home. Schlage Custom™ Door Hardware features architecturally-inspired designs that reflect your unique taste. With our collection of styles and finishes, the possibilities offer a whole new dimension of personal style to your home.

     

    Smart locks like Schlage Sense™ Smart Deadbolt and Schlage Connect™ Smart Deadbolt come in a variety of styles and finishes as well, making it easier than ever to coordinate your hardware from your front door to the back porch and everywhere in between.

     

    Similar products: A good blazer and hair dye. Just like quality door hardware, these are simple ways to elevate your style by changing what people see first and most.

    Simplicity

    Installing your door hardware and locks, not to mention using them on a regular basis, should be easy. Most of our door hardware requires just a screwdriver for installation, and with our patented Snap & Stay technology, there’s no need to juggle components and tools at the same time.

     

    Schlage smart locks are also battery-operated, eliminating the need for hardwiring or calling an electrician during installation.

     

    Using your lock should be easy, too. Storing multiple access codes, locking and unlocking your door remotely from anywhere, and monitoring access through an app are just some of the hallmarks of Schlage simplicity. If ease is a high priority for you, this might be one reason to increase your investment.

     

    Similar product: Home delivery. How often have you paid a little extra for the pizza or groceries to be brought directly to your front door, just for the ease and convenience?

    Support

    When you have a question about your locks or door hardware, you shouldn’t have to go on a wild goose chase for answers. We put solutions at your fingertips with online support ranging from frequently asked questions to installation and user guides, templates and more.

     

    Similar product: Food service. When wait staff is attentive, friendly and knowledgeable, you know you’ll get the dining experience you deserve.

     

    “You get what you pay for” is cliché for a reason. Confidence in getting what you want from your locks and door hardware might be worth the investment to you, particularly when it comes to the safety, simplicity and style of Schlage. For continued help and support in your door lock buying journey, be sure to reach out to us on Twitter or Facebook for help.

    Schlage Connect - Wink

    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.

     

    READ MORE

    Smart lock - Wink - Schlage Connect
    Powered by Z-Wave® technology, the Schlage Connect™ Smart Deadbolt is a versatile smart lock that works with most smart home and alarm systems, including Wink. 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. Here are eight features you can expect when you pair your Schlage Connect lock with a Wink smart home hub.

    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.

    To make this all work, you’ll just need a Wink Hub or Wink Hub 2, Wi-Fi connection and an iOS or Android smartphone device. Visit wink.com to learn how to pair your smart lock with the Wink smart home hub and be sure to reach out to use on Facebook or Twitter with any questions.

    Personalization and flexibility. These two concepts are turning up time and again in design blogs and articles as people look to elevate the style of their homes. The bold look of our latest ¾ handlesets allow homeowners to create the perfect first impression for their home with exterior locks that set the standard for safety, simplicity and style.

     

    Some color trends (the rose gold thing) are on the way out while others (brown is back) are on the way in. Bright, expressive colors are also popular, with Ultra Violet, of all things, taking center stage as Pantone’s Color of The Year. Styles, colors and character are changing from room to room as people express their own personal style and strive to “embrace natural character and authentic textures in their home” according to Leigh Spicher, design director for a leading home builder.

     

    Schlage Custom™ Door Hardware and the newly introduced ¾ handleset provide a unique opportunity, offering a breadth of products that perfectly suit today’s focus on flexibility, style and functionality.

    Stylish Entry - 3/4 Handlesets - Schlage Custom

    The name says it all

    One system. Endless possibilities. Whether replacing outdated or broken locks, remodeling a single room or simply adding new, decorative details, Schlage Custom Door Hardware makes personalizing a single room–or an entire home–as simple as can be.

     

    A screwdriver and an allen wrench are all it takes to customize the style, finish and even functionality of any door lock. It’s that easy. A wide range of designer-inspired knobs, levers, complementary trims and long-lasting and lustrous finishes help make for the ultimate first impression when Schlage Custom handlesets greet visitors at the front door. And brand new ¾ handleset designs, launching this month, add even more possibilities. The distinctive ¾ trim from the grip to the deadbolt creates a stylish, architectural look that is unmistakable and will literally give your entrance door a makeover.

    Flexibility in function

    Design flexibility is just the beginning. Inside the home, Schlage Custom Door Hardware works for a hall or closet door as easily as it does on a locking bedroom or bathroom door. If a homeowner wants to add the ability to lock the door, they simply insert the included locking pin. Without any additional tools, and in just a moment, they can add or remove the locking pin to suit the needs of any room at any moment.

    Well suited for style, performance and value

    “Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.” This has never been more true than with Schlage Custom Door Hardware.

     

    Regardless of function, regardless of style preferences, the sky is the limit whether a homeowner is looking for a coordinated look throughout their home or wants to mix and match styles on different doors. They can even mix and match styles and finishes on both sides of the same door depending upon what they’ve chosen for a specific room’s décor – from traditional to transitional to contemporary and beyond.

     

    The innovative core of Schlage Custom allows for a range of options, allowing for a quick, convenient style update without having to remove the whole lock. And Schlage’s premium design won’t break the bank, delivering a custom designer look that installs in minutes. And at an affordable price.

    According to Ted Roberts, the Style and Design Chief at Schlage’s parent-company Allegion, “Today’s home styles call for flexibility, simplicity, premium style and value. It’s no surprise that these have been principles upon which Schlage was founded almost 100 years ago and that we continue to deliver upon, today.”

     

    Schlage Custom Door Hardware was designed with both form and function in mind. Explore the possibilities at Schlage.com and purchase online at amazon.com and build.com and coming soon to homedepot.com and lowes.com. Enjoy the safety, simplicity and style of Schlage.
