GE Security Offers CareGard With A KeySafe Package

Homeowners feel safe knowing their doors are locked but emergency personnel can still get to them during an emergency

Arden Hills, Minnesota - July 8, 2004 - GE Security, Residential Solutions now offers the CareGard® Home Emergency Call System with a KeySafe Package. GE KeySafe is perfect for PERS homeowners who need to keep their doors locked most of the time.


GE KeySafe is easily installed on the outside of the home and contains a spare key. In an emergency, a monitoring center operator can give emergency personnel the combination to open the KeySafe and retrieve the spare key. Homeowners feel secure knowing their doors are locked, and at ease knowing that emergency personnel can still get to them during an emergency. GE KeySafe can also be used so that family members or friends can readily get a house key when necessary.

"KeySafe is the ideal companion to any personal emergency response system, and many of our dealers (security and medical) already include it with their service," said Kate Fitzgerald GE Security Product Marketing Manager, Home Assurance. "We now offer end -users and dealers a substantial value by packaging both GE Security products together in one kit. With this combination, CareGard offers greater peace of mind to end -users."

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
