More capabilities coming to Kevo Bluetooth lock

Techstination feature for Wednesday, May 21, 2014

More capabilities are coming to the Kevo Bluetooth lock.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.      Kevo is the name of a cool deadbolt lock from Kwikset that uses low energy Bluetooth technology to let you open it up via a mobile device…or with the touch of your finger.   You’ll need to have your iOS device with you or a dongle that come with the lock.   It was developed by Unikey, where founder and president Phil Dumas says the latest update makes Kevo even more useful…

“We’re launching a new software version for your door lock that’s going to increase the speed but also give you some new features like limited time keys, which a lot of people have been asking for.  So if you have a service worker, you can send them a key for Mondays and Wednesdays between two and three p.m. only.  Or if you have a friend that gets to your place before you, you can send them a one time key.”

For now, those you send keys to have to be using iPhones…but Android compatibility is in the works.    You can find us at  I’m Fred Fishkin.
