Keyless touchscreen control: faster, easier, more secureThe Touchscreen Deadbolt is specifically engineered to provide security and technology that complements the needs and lifestyles of today’s homeowners. There’s no need to worry about whether or not the door is locked, as the Touchscreen Deadbolt motorized bolt automatically locks and unlocks when a four-digit user code is entered. Its lock-and-leave functionality requires only one touch to instantly safeguard the home. Other features include a fingerprint-resistant touchscreen that ensures access code numbers won’t wear and become detectable after repeated use, a slim exterior escutcheon that prevents interference with storm doors, and an anti-pick shield that protects the lock against tampering. Built-in alarm lock technology Keeping families safe, the Touchscreen Deadbolt is armed with built-in alarm technology, sensing a range of activity and alerting homeowners with three different automated sounds for three different situations. For example, the Activity Alert sounds when it detects that someone is leaving or entering the house; the Tamper Alert sounds when the lock is being disturbed; and the Forced Entry Alert sounds after identifying significant pressure, such as a kick to the door, or a shove to the lock by someone trying to break in. Nexia: Control locks and more from anywhere Tapping into the latest technology, the Touchscreen Deadbolt connects with Nexia Home Intelligence, enabling homeowners to manage their home security from anywhere in the world, from their smartphones or tablets. For example, users can unlock a door from work to let a dog walker inside, manage unique key codes and settings from the airport, or receive text alerts if a lock is activated or an alarm is triggered while on vacation. With Nexia compatibility, Touchscreen Deadbolt users can also choose to control many additional home functions through their smartphones or tablets, including heating and cooling, video surveillance, lights, shades and whole-home energy usage.
