Ring doorbell and Weiser Kevo lock team up
By Renée Francoeur
November 12, 2015 – The Weiser Kevo smart lock, powered by UniKey technology, and the Ring video doorbell now work together, enabling homeowners to secure and control their entire entryway from their smartphones.
This integration is the latest in a series of integrations Ring is announcing as part of its new Ring Plus program, which enables customers to connect several of their smart home devices to Ring.
When guests push the Ring Video Doorbell or the doorbell’s motion sensors detect movement, homeowners use the Ring mobile app (iOS, Android and Windows 10) to verify and interact with guests. Then, the homeowner can lock or unlock their Kevo smart lock from their mobile device through the Ring app. Homeowners who have upgraded to Kevo Plus can remotely lock or unlock their Kevo smart lock after verifying the guest from anywhere in the world, provided there is an Internet connection.
Users with Ring and Kevo can access the integration through the Ring iOS app version 2.7 available for free download in the App Store. The integration will be available to Android and Windows 10 users by the end of 2015.
Kevo will be available for purchase on Ring.com in mid-November.
