Well-known producer of door locks Schlage is planning to add more intelligent in its products. It’s going to add Z-Wave-based looks line to provide consumers connect them to existing home automation systems or just manage them remotely via Internet.
The new product will be based on Schlage’s line of keypad locks and will have two-way Z-Wave RF technology built in. The battery-operated locks communicate with a Z-Wave gateway that connects to any broadband router. Since Z-Wave is a standards-based protocol, other Z-Wave-compatible controllers could operate the locks as well.
Remember that LinuxMCE has basic Z-Wave interface. So, you can try the new Schlage’s Z-Wave door lock when it’ll be released.
