LAKE FOREST, CA (August 8, 2019) – The Kwikset® brand of Spectrum Brands, Inc. – Hardware & Home Improvement Division today announced its Bluetooth-enabled smart lock, Aura™, is now available for purchase. First unveiled at CES 2019, Aura from Kwikset provides an affordable entry point for those looking to upgrade to a smart lock with simple programming capabilities through a smartphone.

With Aura, Kwikset offers homeowners an affordable smart lock that can be programmed and managed from the Kwikset mobile app on compatible smartphones while the homeowner is within Bluetooth range of the lock. Homeowners can schedule guest access, generate and manage up to 250 user codes, and share lock management with others from the convenience of their smartphone. Aura can be locked and unlocked using the keypad, a traditional key or through the mobile app when within Bluetooth range of the lock.

Top Reasons to Choose Aura:

  • Easy-to-use Kwikset app makes managing Aura straightforward and uncomplicated within Bluetooth range of the lock
  • Simple installation for those just entering the smart lock and smart home space
  • Advanced security features totally unique to Kwikset deadbolts


Homeowners will feel secure knowing Aura features the Kwikset patented SmartKey Security™, protecting against common and forced entry break-in methods like lock picking, lock bumping and torque attacks. SmartKey Security also allows homeowners to reset their security by re-keying their locks quickly and easily; rendering lost, loaned or unreturned keys useless.
