EDITORS RATING:

Your life just got easier. With Kevo’s Touch-to-Open technology you can simply leave your smartphone in your pocket or purse upon entering; no more fumbling for your keys. Just touch the lock to open for the ultimate convenience. No smartphone? No problem. Enjoy the same touch to open convenience with the included fob. You can send an electronic key (eKey) to family, friends, or visitors who have a compatible Smartphone so they can use their phone as a key too. Receive notifications of lock activity and manage the lock and eKeys with the Kevo mobile app. In addition to the convenience, Kevo is incredibly secure. You can add, delete or disable eKeys from the mobile app or utilize the Lost Phone Reset should the unthinkable happen. This single cylinder deadbolt can be locked or unlocked by a key on the outside, or the turn button on the inside. The Venetian Bronze finish is hand-rubbed to reveal unique bronze highlights and provides a rich and warm complement to the product’s style.

Kevo now works with Alexa voice commands (requires Kevo Plus hub, sold separately). You can lock/unlock (PIN required) and check lock status.
