LAKE FOREST, CA – Kwikset® brand of Spectrum Brands, Inc. – Hardware & Home Improvement Division, the leader in residential security, will showcase their Home Connect 620, the company’s newest Z-Wave connected smart lock, at the CEDIA Expo 2022, September 29-October 1. Kwikset will be located in Booth 8025.
The Home Connect 620, which offers a 10-button keypad with one-touch locking, is Kwikset’s first smart lock in the “Home Connect” line. It is the also the company’s first lock featuring the latest Z-Wave 700 chip technology, which includes the convenience of Z-Wave SmartStart and the security of the S2 framework.
The incorporation of the new Z-Wave™ 700 Series provides a number of significant enhancements, including wireless security features that reduce the vulnerability of the network during enrollment. In addition, devices using the Z-Wave 700 Series will consume 64% less power for wireless communication, and the technology allows for resting when the device is not being used. Plus, the three optional layers of security that the 500 Series chip offered are now mandatory and enhanced in the Z-Wave 700 Series. Furthermore, the 700-Series is expected to allow for communication that is 250% further than the Z-Wave Plus 500-Series, a major increase in wireless range.
With Z-Wave SmartStart, users can enroll devices by scanning a QR code even before beginning installation, providing an easier and faster way to gain instant interoperability and control of the Home Connect 620. The S2 framework provides an additional layer of AES 128-bit encryption of wireless signals for increased device security.
Featuring a sleek, all-metal design, choice of traditional or contemporary styling, the Home Connect 620 connected smart lock is designed to integrate with a variety of smart home systems and serves as an ideal “entry-level” smart lock. The Home Connect 620 delivers convenience and peace of mind to homeowners with complete remote locking/unlocking via smartphones and tablets, as well as total home control.
The Home Connect 620 can hold up to 250 user access codes and receive notifications from anywhere there is an internet connection through a home automation system. Homeowners can quickly send personalized access codes to family and guests.
