According to a recent announcement, Schlage and Amazon are set to collaborate on services and products to elevate the Smart Home owner’s experience. To kick off the partnership, the Schlage Connect Smart Deadbolt, Zigbee certified, reportedly is the newest smart lock partner for the Amazon Key service, giving customers even more choice to provide secure, convenient access for friends, family, and providers.

“With over 95 years of experience, we’ve committed ourselves to helping consumers achieve a secure, smart home experience through our door hardware, intellectual devices and integrations,” said Lee Odess, VP, solution providers business, Allegion, maker of Schlage locks. “Collaborating with Amazon will inspire customers to consider the possibilities of convenience when managing their home systems, while giving them more control, security and peace-of-mind.”

Schlage’s integration of Zigbee protocol into the Schlage Connect Smart Deadbolt will allow customers to lock their door while away from home via the Amazon Key app when paired to the Amazon Cloud Cam. Customers will receive real-time notifications, live streams, and recorded clips to control and monitor guest access and optional in-home delivery without having to be there. The Schlage Connect Smart Deadbolt can also be managed through the Amazon Alexa app when synched to Amazon Echo Plus or Echo Show.
