Schlage Launches the Connected Touchscreen Lock Designed for Security Integrators and Monitored Security Dealers

Schlage®, America’s most trusted lock brand for over 90 years, has combined best-in-class security with state-of-the-art design to launch the new Connected Touchscreen. Available to security dealers, integrators and custom builders at a competitive price point, the Connected Touchscreen offers homeowners the convenience of keyless entry with the safety advantage of a fingerprint-resistant screen. The new lock comes with the ability to hold up to 30 codes, and through Z-Wave integration, allows users the capability to manage their home’s security from anywhere in world from an Internet-connected device.

A brand of Allegion plc (NYSE:ALLE), Schlage built the Connected Touchscreen with a variety of features that will provide homeowners with the peace of mind that their home, family and possessions are safe, secure and protected. The lock offers a high level of strength and delivers the American National Standards Institution (ANSI) Grade 2 security, as established by the Builders Hardware Manufacturers Association (BHMA). The open-platform lock is compatible with leading home automation and monitored security systems. In addition, the Connected Touchscreen includes an anti-pick shield that protects against lock tampering, features auto-throw capabilities and a cylindrical deadbolt.

Since launching its line of keyless electronic locks, Schlage has become the go-to security provider for dealers, integrators and custom builders because its products, the strongest in the market today, offer unparalleled peace of mind and are easy to install and retrofit. The Connected Touchscreen builds on this foundation, designed for quick installation with a snap and stay feature that only requires a screwdriver to mount. The lock’s patent-pending drive train is designed to withstand the challenges of weather stripping, seasonal changes in the door and frame, and less-than-perfect door prep, resulting in fewer call backs.

“At Schlage, we pride ourselves in building strong relationships with custom homebuilders, home security integrators, distributors, dealers and platform providers,” said Steve Down, Allegion Residential Leader. “We continue to work with these partners to drive innovation around home security. With the Schlage Connected Touchscreen we designed a product built for smart accessibility with Z-Wave integration. This delivers the technology, security, reliability, strength and design to meet a homeowner’s unique needs.”

The Connected Touchscreen is available in two distinctive styles in a variety of finishes that complement each home’s unique style. Available in Bright Brass, Satin Nickel, Bright Chrome and Aged Bronze finishes, the Camelot style boasts a traditional design. The Century style, offered in Satin Nickel, Bright Chrome, Satin Chrome and Aged Bronze finishes, appeals to homeowners in contemporary, modern residences. It also includes a resistive touchscreen with wear-resistant printed numbers. This touchscreen can be used when wearing gloves or in rainy conditions. As with all of Schlage’s electronic products, the Connected Touchscreen is backed by a three-year manufacturer’s limited warranty.

Schlage’s collection of electronic locks and deadbolts are the most technologically advanced on the market today, offering keyless control so homeowners never have to worry about losing, hiding, carrying or forgetting their keys again. Schlage products were recently recognized among Electronic House 2013 Products of the Year, Professional Builders 101 Best New Products, Green Builder Media's Hot 50 Products for 2012 and was named a 2013 Silver Edison Award Winner, honoring the best in innovation and excellence in the development of new products and services.

The Schlage® Connected Touchscreen will be available to security dealers, integrators and installers in spring of 2014.
