Z-Wave Web-Enabled Door Locks

Z-Wave Door Locks

CE Pro have news on a new range of z-wave door locks from Schlage.  Having a door lock that can be controlled and monitored from a computer or cell phone sounds like some sort of home automation perfection but that’s exactly what you can do with these puppies via a Z-Wave to Ethernet gateway…

“The new products will have two-way Z-Wave RF technology built in. The battery-operated locks communicate with a Z-Wave gateway that connects to any broadband router.

The gateway serves up Web pages that allow users to remotely access the locks. From there, anything is possible: lock or unlock the doors; see who came and went…and when; schedule notification of comers and goers; create and disable passcodes. Up to 256 devices can be accessed through a single Z-Wave gateway.

In the past, remote-controllable door locks have had some problems in the residential market because door bolts don’t always tend to align correctly – you have to lift or push or otherwise manipulate the door to get the bolt to latch or unlatch.

But Schlage offers the electronic locks (the original and forthcoming Z-Wave versions) for traditional knobs and levers as well as dead bolts.”
