The Keyless Home Kwikset Powerbolt is Futuristic, Fun

Lake Forest, CA – September 2004 - Kwikset® invites homeowners to step into ultra-modern home security with the new Keyless Home Access System – the Powerbolt® 1000.

The Kwikset Powerbolt 1000 touchpad electronic deadbolt puts keyless home access at your fingertips. The touchpad is easy for everyone in the family to use and is great for kids. A keyless home also means push-button locking from inside and outside.

“Losing house keys is a thing of the past,” says Jimmy Pendley, Kwikset Vice President of Product Marketing and Field Sales. “A keyless entry system means the homeowner doesn’t carry a house key and is never locked out of their home. The Kwikset Powerbolt simplifies and improves the home security routine."

The Kwikset Powerbolt 1000 is easy to program. It has about five hundred-thousand security code combinations and can operate with four-to-eight digit security codes. Homeowners can easily program a secondary security code that allows guests or service people temporary entry.

“Virtually any home can be converted to keyless entry by installing the Kwikset Powerbolt 1000. Replacing existing door hardware with the Powerbolt is a do-it-yourself job any homeowner can accomplish,” Pendley added.

The Kwikset Powerbolt 1000 sounds an alarm after three consecutive incorrect security code attempts, and has a low battery indicator light. The Kwikset Powerbolt 1000 electronic system retains security codes during power loss and AA battery replacement.

The Kwikset Powerbolt® is available nationwide at hardware stores and home centers in a variety of fashionable finishes including Satin Nickel and Polished Brass.

There’s hardly a door that Kwikset can’t make more attractive or more secure. For more than fifty years Kwikset has meant security and peace of mind for millions of families. No wonder more people trust their doors, inside and out, to the beauty and strength of Kwikset. America’s #1 Selling Lockset
