Schlage, creator of the strongest security products available to the home builders market, is bridging the gap between security and design to be the preferred choice for door locks, handlesets and levers among design and construction professionals.
The hardware manufacturer will showcase its innovative products at this year’s International Builders’ Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nev., February 4–6, 2014. A brand of Allegion (NYSE:ALLE), Schlage will feature its suite of locks and decorative products, which complement the aesthetic and style of every home, at Booth #C3532.
Innovative Locks – Electronic and Mechanical
With a variety of best-in-class mechanical and electronic locks, Schlage gives residential builders the confidence in knowing that they have done everything they can to offer quality, reliable security to today’s discerning home buyers. The brand has redefined what it means to be protected with the Schlage® Touchscreen Deadbolt, its strongest lock to date. Offering the highest-grade residential security available, as certified by the Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association (BHMA), the Touchscreen Deadbolt is the only Z-Wave® compatible lock to feature a built-in alarm system, producing warning alerts to homeowners prior to their home being breached. This multi-function lock comes fully loaded with security features, offering homeowners and property managers keyless control, customizable, secure access codes and the potential to access their residence from anywhere.
When used in conjunction with a home automation or monitored security systems, such as Z-Wave compatible systems, that include 2Gig by Linear, Alarm.com, Nexia™ Home Intelligence, ELAN, Leviton, Lowes’ Iris, Mios, Staples Connect and Vera, the Touchscreen Deadbolt affords homeowners the ability to secure and manage their home security while they are anywhere in the world, from an Internet-connected smartphone, tablet or computer. Depending on the platform, users can unlock doors remotely, manage distinctive key codes and settings or receive text alerts if a lock is activated or an alarm is triggered.
“Over the past year, the notion of owning a connected home has quickly turned from dream to reality,” said Steve Down, Allegion’s Vice President and General Manager of Residential Security. “The Schlage® Touchscreen Deadbolt offers the highest security rating in the market, and a host of built-in alarm features, which makes the product an essential development in home building. When supplemented by a suite of home automation control functions through Z-Wave technology, it’s easy to see why the lock is today’s top choice for builders.”
Schlage’s new Safe and Easy Exit keyed entry locks, allow consumers to safely and conveniently leave their homes without unlocking their door. The Safe and Easy Exit security products also automatically unlock, allowing convenient re-entry that is coupled with the highest residential security for a knob or lever product.
Stylist Design, At Any Price
Beyond electronic products, Schlage offers a variety of high-quality decorative door hardware, perfect for new builds, renovations and retrofits of any size and style. Schlage’s Decorative Collections offer more than 1,000 customized design and finish options that reflect a home’s individual style.
