Kwikset’s first keyway-less, low-profile touchscreen deadbolt is the centerpiece of five new residential door locks being introduced by the company. Eliminating the keyway has allowed Kwikset to elevate the design and security of residential door locks by merging a sleek and modern exterior, a small all-metal interior, and advanced mechanical and electronic security features. The removal of the keyway also takes away the threat of lock picking and lock bumping. If the four AA batteries run out of power, backup power can be supplied via a 9V battery. The keyway-less touchscreen will have the new Z-Wave 500 Series chip, which comes with a number of enhancements including increased wireless range and robust wireless encryption. All five Kwikset products being introduced feature the new Z-Wave 500 Series chip.
