Meet the new Kevo App for iOS: the latest update to the Kwikset Kevo Smart Lock platform.
Available February 1st, the new Kevo App for iOS grants all Kevo users new functionality, an updated user experience, and improved lock response. Download the new App from the App Store today to experience everything that Kevo has to offer.
With Kevo users have always been able to instantly give, remove, and customize access to their home using eKeys. Starting February 1st Anytime eKeys, which were previously a $1.99 in-app purchase, are completely free. Any Kevo users who download the updated version of the iOS app will be able to issue Anytime eKeys to their family, friends, and neighbors at no cost.
iOS users are also receiving an update that will help Kevo to understand when a door is in motion so that it will not throw the deadbolt. This is called “Brush Detection,” and uses the accelerometer inside your Kevo 2nd Generation lock. Our hope is that this new technology helps users avoid accidental locks and unlocks.
It’s been 3 years since Kwikset launched the Kevo Smart Lock, and apart from a few minor tweaks here and there, the user interface has remained largely the same. With the new application, users will experience a familiar and more intuitive user experience. Take a look at the all new app:
Improved Lock Response
Our engineers have also been hard at work with the Unikey team to improve the response rate of our smart lock. All users should experience faster response times and increased success rates as they move to the new iOS application.
