When purchasing an Amazon Key In-Home Kit, renters and homeowners can choose from one of several smart locks, including two Kwikset smart lock solutions

LLAKE FOREST (October 25, 2017) — Kwikset®, the number one selling residential door hardware brand in the U.S. has teamed up with Amazon to offer renters and homeowners two smart lock solutions to choose from when purchasing an Amazon Key In-Home Kit.

Amazon Key is a new service from Amazon that allows Prime members in 37 cities and surrounding areas across the U.S. to receive in-home delivery and grant secure home access for guests using the Amazon Cloud Cam and a compatible smart lock.

Kwikset SmartCode 914, a touchpad smart lock, and Kwikset Convert, a smart lock conversion kit, are two options that customers can choose from when purchasing an Amazon Key In-Home Kit.

Why Choose Kwikset?

Kwikset offers two distinct smart lock solutions as part of the Amazon Key In-Home Kit, designed to meet the needs of homeowners and renters. Kwikset Convert is a smart lock conversion kit option for renters and homeowners who are unable to or don’t want to replace their door hardware but want to use the Amazon Key service, while SmartCode 914 is a touchpad smart lock that replaces an existing deadbolt.

Once installed, Prime members can use the Amazon Key app to lock or unlock their Kwikset smart lock from anywhere, check the lock status and receive lock notifications. Members can also grant home access to friends, family and others using the Amazon Key app.

Kwikset Convert

  • Award-winning, easy-to-use conversion kit that transforms Kwikset and other manufacturers’ deadbolts into smart lock
  • Replace only the interior of an existing deadbolt to transform it into a smart lock that connects to a smartphone, while keeping the original key as a backup
  • Designed for renters and style-conscious homeowners who want to enjoy the convenience of a smart lock but don’t want to fully replace their current door hardware
  • Available in Satin NickelVenetian Bronze and Polished Brass finishes

SmartCode 914

  • Durable smart lock equipped with SmartKey Security™, an advanced security feature only found in Kwikset products that protects against the most common break-in methods. SmartKey allows users to re-key their lock in seconds and match one key across all Kwikset locks
  • Available in Satin NickelVenetian Bronze and Polished Brass finishes to complement any home's décor

“Kwikset offers both smart locks and smart lock conversion kits as part of the Amazon Key In-Home Kit and we’re excited for Prime members to experience the benefits of a Kwikset smart lock solution as part of the new service,” says Keith Brandon, Kwikset Vice President of Residential Access Solutions, Spectrum Brands Inc. – Hardware and Home Improvement Division.
