Kwikset Kevo lock

Over the last 10 years, we’ve seen more and more technology integrated into homes.

Kwikset has a new lock that offers a lot of promise to make our lives easier and more secure.

The Kwikset Kevo lock works with the iPhone 4s and 5 so all you have to do is touch the lock to open your door. If you don’t have an iPhone 4s or 5, you can use a keychain fob and the key will still work.

Kwikset Kevo beam key

The Kwikset Kevo also allows you to beam a eKey so other people with the app can also open the door. This feature is perfect for when out of town guests are staying with you. They are great for the cleaning lady and the babysitter.

Kwikset Kevo features

While the locks are expensive at $219 each, this just might be one of those high tech home features that makes your life a lot easier.

Kwikset Kevo color finishes

They even have 3 colors so your lock will match the rest of your door hardware.

I live in a condo now, and I have to pull out my keys to open the common doors at the gate, garage and stairwell before getting to the front door of my townhouse. So using one of these new Kwikset Kevo’s wouldn’t save me from having to pull out keys. But if I still lived in my old house, I would definitely be ordering one of the locks.

What do you think? Are you ready to bring some technology into your home?
