Kwikset Captures Electronic House Award
Kwikset has been awarded a prestigious Electronic House 2015 Products of the Year award for its SmartCode 916 Touchscreen Deadbolt. The Products of the Year awards recognize the best technologies, products and services for the Electronic House.
Award submissions were reviewed by a judging panel of several respected industry leaders along with the editors of Electronic House and CE Pro. Considerations for winning the award included creativity, innovation, functionality, and aesthetic and lifestyle benefits.
Winning in the category of Access Control, the SmartCode 916 Touchscreen Electronic Deadbolt provides all the features of Kwikset's highly-popular SmartCode 914 deadbolt lock - including keyless entry - combined with the added convenience and enhanced aesthetics of a capacitive touchscreen. Users can activate the SmartCode 916 Touchscreen with the touch of a hand. The touchscreen is very responsive, sensing every touch immediately for ultra-fast code entry. Also, a dedicated lock button allows for convenient, fast one-touch locking.
Another important and unique feature of the SmartCode 916 is SecureScreen. This feature can help mask “smudge” attacks, in which usercodes can potentially be jeopardized by detecting frequently used numbers from the oily residues on the touchscreen surface.
