LAKE FOREST, Calif., July 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kwikset ® (NYSE: SPB) introduces its latest Kevo upgrade today, giving users the ability to send free and unlimited Guest electronic keys (eKeys) to recipients, and with a Scheduled eKey, set day and time constraints for regular house guests like babysitters, dog-walkers and contractors. Kevo owners can update their Kevo mobile app and lock firmware to enable these new types of eKeys.
"We're always looking for ways to improve the Kevo experience, and we hope this upgrade shows our customers that we're listening," said Keith Brandon, director, residential access solutions. "Since Kevo's been on the market, our customers have asked for free eKeys that let them give access anytime to friends or neighbors without paying for a new key. Now our unlimited Guest eKeys let them do that. We're also introducing Scheduled eKeys to give homeowners the convenience of setting date and time constraints."
Mobile App Upgrade
With new free and unlimited Guest eKeys, users can give recipients unrestricted access for a 24-hour period. Owners also have the option to delete Guest eKeys manually before the 24-hour access expires. From giving a neighbor day-long access to keep an eye on your kids, or letting in a weekend guest who beats you home from a busy day at work, the Guest eKey provides ultimate convenience and flexibility.The new Scheduled eKey enhances home access control by allowing users to set day and time constraints right from their phones. Ideal for house cleaners, dog walkers, nannies or others that need regular access at pre-determined times, like on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-3 p.m. Kevo owners can schedule these eKeys to be active prior to sending, so they don't have to remember to grant or revoke access to these users in real time.
