Set to display at ISC West next week is the newest Z-Wave-connected smart lock from residential security manufacturer Kwikset®. The Home Connect 620, Kwikset’s first smart lock in the “Home Connect” line, features a 10-button keypad with one-touch locking; and the latest Z-Wave 700 chip technology, which includes Z-Wave’s SmartStart and the security of the S2 framework. 

Designed with an all-metal design and a choice of traditional or contemporary styling, the Home Connect 620 connected smart lock was crafted to integrate with a variety of smart home systems, serving as an ideal “entry-level” smart lock. The Home Connect 620 delivers complete remote locking/unlocking via smartphones and tablets, as well as total home control. 

With the new Z-Wave™ 700 Series chip this smart lock includes extended wireless range and wireless security features that reduce the vulnerability of the network during enrollment, as well as increased battery life. 

With Z-Wave SmartStart, users can enroll devices by scanning a QR code before beginning installation. The S2 framework adds an additional layer of AES 128-bit encryption of wireless signals for increased device security.

The Home Connect 620 can hold up to 250 user access codes and receive notifications from anywhere there is an Internet connection through a home automation system.  Homeowners can quickly send personalized access codes to family and guests. The Mastercode feature protects commands and settings to prevent lock tampering and can be managed wirelessly for additional security and lock management.
