CARMEL, Ind., Sept. 24, 2015 -- 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, is now offering its newest innovation, the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt, for pre-order at Amazon.com, HomeDepot.com and Build.com.

The Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt will retail for $229.00.
Introduced at the 2015 International CES tradeshow, the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt is one of the strongest, most intelligent Bluetooth-enabled locks on the market, with the highest industry rating for security and durability and includes Schlage's patented and patent pending technologies. Designed to work with Apple HomeKit, the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt allows users to control their door lock as part of their smart home. Apple HomeKit technology provides advanced security, with end-to-end encryption and authentication between the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt and an iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. With an Apple TV in the home, remote capabilities are possible. Additionally, HomeKit lets consumers talk to unlock their Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt using Siri voice control.
"We are thrilled to announce the release of the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt into retail. This launch has been highly anticipated, as we continue to reimagine and develop innovative keyless solutions that integrate smart-home technology," said Steve Down, Allegion residential leader. "As a leader in technology and innovation, the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt is the newest offering in our suite of electronic products designed to offer consumers the strength, style and convenience that they expect from our brand, and now that also includes support for Apple HomeKit technology."
The Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt has the ability to manage and schedule up to 30 access codes through a dedicated, easy-to-use app. The Schlage Sense app allows individuals to create and delete codes, check on lock status and view activity, as well as update settings and check battery life without requiring a connection to an existing home automation system or a monthly subscription charge. The lock also gives homeowners the choice and flexibility of entering their home using the lock's illuminated touchscreen or with their iPhone or even Apple Watch.
Staying true to Schlage's dedication to creating quality products that complement consumers' personal tastes, the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt is available in two styles, Camelot and Century, and in a variety of finishes, including Matte Black, Satin Nickel and Aged Bronze, to fit each home's unique design aesthetic.
