New Lock Technology from Schlage, supporting Z-WAVE

May 19, 2008 at 8:58 pm 3 comments

Schlage lock sets are coming out with models that support the Z-WAVE system. What is the Z-WAVE system you ask? It is a home network system built upon a standard put forward by Zensys. Here is an excerpt from the Z-WAVE Alliance website: (http://www.z-wavealliance.org/)

Home control has been the subject of science fiction and futuristic magazine articles for years. But the reality has been rather disappointing. What home control systems have been available until now are either too expensive, too difficult to install and use and too limited in their scope.
The Z-Wave Alliance has changed all of that. It is a consortium of leading independent manufacturers who have agreed to build wireless home control products based on the Zensys’ Z-Wave open standard.
Having this standard means every product that bears the Z-Wave mark will work with all other Z-Wave
Whether you’re a consumer, home builder, remodeling contractor, or retailer, the Z-Wave Alliance has something to offer. Catch the Z-Wave today.
Products, with no special programming, regardless of who originally manufacturers the item. As a result, total home control has been made simple, accessible and affordable to consumers everywhere. Not three years from now. Not next year — today.

This technology has been around in some way since Q4 of 2005, but the number of products has been growing in a substantial manner lately with these Schlage locks as the latest additions.

The coolest thing about these locks is the ability to control them from any web enabled device, even your cell phone! The full story is here at:
