Schlage LiNK Brings Locks Online

Schlage LiNK

We reported on the Schlage LiNK Z-Wave powered door locks back in May last year.  They’re now available to buy in the USA and a new iPhone app is available to control your deadbolts across the Ether.

Unfortunately it looks like the $300 kit is not the only cost though, as you’ll be required to take out a monthly subscription if you want to be able to access your lock over the Net through the Schlage website…

“The Schlage LiNK solution gives homeowners the ability to remotely manage access to their homes via most web-enabled computers or cell phones for a low monthly fee*. With this service, homeowners can also receive text or email alerts when someone enters the home. Monitor entry and receive electronic notifications. Schlage LiNK sends emails and text messages so you know who’s home, and it allows you to confirm the status of your system from anywhere. As long as you have a cell phone or computer, Schlage LiNK lets you stay in touch and in control.

Schlage LiNK allows you to unlock your door remotely from your cell phone or computer, assign and manage a personal code for each user, and give every family member a code they can remember.

Everything you need to get started is included in this kit: 1 Schlage LiNK Keypad Deadbolt, 1 Bridge Device, and 1 Light Module.

*A minimal monthly subscription fee is required. Even if you choose not to subscribe, Schlage LiNK will still function as a keypad lock or keypad deadbolt.”
