The contemporary versions of Kwikset’s SmartCode 914 deadbolt lock and SmartCode 916 touchscreen electronic deadbolt will be the company’s first connected smart locks to feature the new iron black finish. These contemporary smart locks feature an updated, modern design, while continuing to utilize Kwikset’s Home Connect technology. As a result, they integrate with home security and automation systems to deliver convenience and peace-of-mind to homeowners with complete remote locking/unlocking via smartphones and tablets. Both SmartCode 914 and SmartCode 916 with Home Connect technology incorporate the new Z-Wave 500 Series chip. The new chip provides a number of enhancements, including support for over-the-air firmware updates, extended wireless range, and robust network security and encryption. The SmartCode 916 features Kwikset’s unique SecureScreen, which helps mask “smudge” attacks in which user codes can be potentially jeopardized by detecting frequently used numbers from the oily residues on the touchscreen surface.
