Life is filled with unexpected twists and turns. A day at work could lead to a visit to mom or a surprise trip to the aquarium. These spontaneous moments often create the best memories.

New smart home innovations are meant to make it easier for you to enjoy life’s surprises without worrying about your home. But with new, unfamiliar technologies, they can create even more chaos and frustration.

A smart home starts at the front door, and Kwikset® is introducing a variety of smart locks that will give anyone what they need to amp up their smart home security. Whether you are looking for a sleek lock to work with your smart home system or simply control your existing lock to your smartphone, or anything in between, there is a smart lock made for your lifestyle.

To create a whole smart home that you can control from anywhere in the world:

Look for a smart lock that works with smart home systems and allow for remote access with a smartphone. Consider what your other smart home products work with before choosing a lock. Kwikset Premis™ is a DIY smart lock that works with Apple® HomeKit™ so you can control it remotely from your iPhone® and other iOS devices when it is paired with an Apple TV® or send user codes to guests. You can also make your lock work with other Apple HomeKit-enabled products so when you lock your door, the lights automatically turn off and the thermostat lowers. Check out this post to learn more about Premis.

To unlock your door with a touch and control from your phone:

Kwikset Kevo™ 2nd Gen is the only smart lock that has Touch-to-Open™ technology, so you don’t need a key or user code. Walk up to the door, touch the lock, and it opens.
