The Total Key Management Solution
Using the Kevo mobile app, homeowners can send eKeys to family, friends or service people, anywhere, anytime. Once an eKey is sent, recipients can simply download the mobile app, if they don’t already have it installed, keep their iPhone in their purse or pocket and unlock the door with a simple touch. With several levels of permissions, Kevo Owners and Administrators have authorization to send, delete and disable eKeys within seconds. After distributing eKeys, they can choose to receive notifications when a user locks or unlocks the door, for convenient home security management. Homeowners agree, eKeys are the answer to every-day challenges in key (and home security) management:
“Using Kevo is like living in the future. My new smart lock, and therefore my home, now magically recognizes me by touch. Being able to issue and revoke virtual keys to family members or service providers is priceless. Install was a breeze, even for a guy like me who’s never replaced a deadbolt, and it only required a single screwdriver.” – David Zatz, blogger at “Zatz Not Funny”.
Kevo: Kevo is a Bluetooth-enabled deadbolt that uses Bluetooth Low Energy 4.0 technology to turn your smartphone into an electronic key (eKey). Kevo locks and unlocks quickly with the touch of a finger while your smartphone remains in your purse or pocket, eliminating the need to fumble for keys.
Kevo Mobile App: The Kevo app is available for free download from compatible smartphone app marketplaces, such as the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. The app is used for initial setup, locking & unlocking, sending, disabling and deleting eKeys; viewing history of lock activity; and setting up other configurable features and options of the smart lock.
