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.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

President Obama recently announced the launch of a new national awareness campaign to "encourage more Americans to move beyond passwords – adding an extra layer of security like a fingerprint or codes sent to your cellphone." The shift from single passwords to multi-factor authentication couldn’t be timelier or more strategic. This session will focus on why passwords alone are no longer effective, and why the time to act is now. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Chris Webber, security strateg...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
