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."
