CARMEL, Ind.--Schlage, a brand of Allegion plc that has created the most technologically advanced lock products to help consumers secure their homes for more than 95 years, today announced new features and an enhanced user experience available for Schlage products running on the Wink app.


Homeowners monitoring the Schlage Connect lock or Schlage Keypad Lock from the Wink app will notice a more integrated user experience as well as enhanced onscreen pairing instructions and user walkthrough. Updated app features include:

* Battery life percentage indication when the battery level reaches 20 percent
* Ability to add or remove user codes and set notification reminders to delete user codes at specific dates or times

Additionally, homeowners with Schlage Connect locks will be able to customize alarm settings through Wink. Owners of Schlage Keypad locks will now be able to lock and unlock their doors remotely and monitor current statuses.

"Integrating Schlage products with Wink gives us the ability to offer consumers exceptional convenience in monitoring and controlling their homes, along with the strength, security and style they expect from Schlage," said Steve Down, Allegion residential leader. "As homeowners' lifestyles are constantly evolving, Schlage also continuously evolves - resulting in the creation of quality products that fit consumers' current needs, allowing them to feel confident and secure in their homes."

Wink connects hundreds of products from trusted brands - including Schlage - in a single, easy-to-use app. Through the app, homeowners can control their connected home products individually or as a group, through intuitive in-app experiences.

"We're very excited about these new Schlage features as they demonstrate how connected home technology can redefine how people interact with and experience the devices they use every day," said Brett Worthington, VP and General Manager, Wink. "That's the beauty of Wink - we're able to continue providing new and improved functionalities alongside our trusted partners - like Schlage - so that your connected products evolve with you over time."

The Schlage Connect lock puts homeowners in control by allowing them to be continuously connected to their front door from anywhere in the world via leading Z-Wave compatible home automation systems, such as Wink. With built-in alarm technology, a Grade 1 highest residential security rating and keyless entry, the Schlage Connect lock has been opening up new possibilities for the home since launching in 2013. Additionally, the brand's top-selling Schlage Keypad locks provide the convenience of keyless access and are highly customizable to fit homeowners' security and style needs.
