"Kwikset and technology partner, UniKey Technologies, Inc., have demonstrated continued investment in the Kevo Android platform, first with a private beta test in November 2014, then with a public beta program in December 2014," said Greg Williamson, chief marketing officer, Hardware and Home Improvement, Spectrum Brands. "These successful beta programs paired with positive customer feedback allowed Kwikset to bring a fully functional app to the consumer quickly."
