Schlage helps secure your home remotely


Come October, you will be able to monitor your home with your cell phone. No kidding. And that’s because a company called Schlage is all set to launch its latest line of doorknobs and deadbolts that can be operated over the Internet and even checked via mobile.

The locks, which use SSL protection and 128 bit encryption, can be operated directly through buttons on the doorknob with a single access code - which means you don’t have to carry your key around anymore. No worries about losing your precious key, and none about distributing duplicates for family/friends either. And the good news doesn’t end there – every time a person enters the house, you are notified through text and email alerts, which means you can monitor every entrant to the house remotely. Now assume that you want to prevent a certain person who knows the access code from entering the house. All you need to do is to change the 4-digit code online and you are done.

The Schlage starter kit (with one lock and the necessary setup hardware), due to hit stores by late October, costs $299 with a monthly subscription fee of $13. And you will have to shell out an additional $199 for every extra lock that you purchase. Pretty hefty on the wallet, but nonetheless a sensible investment if you need tight security for your home.
