The Kwikset Kevo System Requires No Key to Enable Your Entry

The concept of the Kwikset Kevo might sound somewhere between fascinating and frightening, but the focus really should remain on the former. This invention is a smartphone-synced deadbolt that releases without any need for a key.

The system relies on an iPhone app that you can download for your model 4s or iPhone 5. Set up the wireless link between the illuminating door lock and your handset, and use it to gain access into every external door of your home, as well as the shed, your beach house and your cottage. The moment that that mobile phone comes in close proximity to one of these entrances, a connection is made without contact and an effortless touch of your fingertip will turn the lock.

With the Kwikset Kevo Key system, you can even send virtual keys to neighbors and dock walkers.
