About the DEN SmartStrike
The DEN SmartStrike is a disruptive access control solution and the first, invisible, wireless smart door strike that installs easily and discreetly into the door frame. Featuring an inconspicuous design, users get all the benefits of a smart door lock without compromising the aesthetic design of the door. With the DEN SmartStrike, users can maintain their existing door hardware including the handle. Once installed, users can still use their traditional key to unlock their door or via the companion app (available for both iOS and Android), to easily, safely, and securely access their homes and businesses. Through the app, users can also create digital keys for family members, friends, and temporary guests.
DEN Smart Home will be exhibiting at CEDIA Expo 2023 (Booth #829). To book an appointment at CEDIA Expo, inquire about North America sales or distribution opportunities, or learn more about the disruptive access control solution, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
