Everglade Windows has added the lock to its range to help installers meet consumer demand for integrated smart technology throughout the home.
“Homeowners are increasingly adding smart technology to their homes, with the likes of smart speakers, integrated apps and other gadgets. Ultion Smart is the next step for smart home technology,” Bhavik Dabasia, Technical Director at Everglade Windows, says.
The Ultion Smart lock can be used in three ways: voice activation, Bluetooth and a key.
The lock can be linked to Amazon Alexa, Apple Homekit and the Danalock app, where homeowners can lock and unlock the door and check their door’s locked status.
The app also allows handsfree operation, with auto-unlock activating when homeowners approach the front door and the auto-lock activating when they’re safely inside.
There’s also the handy Twist Assist feature which does the job of a key. Simply nudging the dial on the handle will cause the 12 volt meter to turn, with no thumb-turning or lever lifting required.
“We were really impressed with all of these features,” continues Bhavik. “But what makes Ultion Smart more appealing is that security and style is still covered. The lock has Ultion 3-star Sold Security and the curved finish of Sweet door furniture for a complete handle solution.
“To help installers meet the demand from homeowners looking to make their home smarter, we’ve launched Ultion Smart on a variety of doors from Everglade Windows.”
