At CES 2015, we’ve seen a number of companies exploring the emerging field of Smart Locks. The new Schlage Sense is a smart lock from Schlage: a company with a reputation for security.

Installation is simple: bolt the lock onto the door and insert four AA batteries. Once it’s installed, you’ll be able to access your home either with your key, a four-digit PIN, or your smartphone’s Bluetooth connection. The lock looks similar to most locks with its sturdy rectangular design. On the new lock’s front panel, it features a touchscreen keypad for coded entry. However, the Bluetooth controlled deadbolt is the primary new feature.

The Schlage Sense allows users to customize up to 30 entry codes and control when guests may enter. The processor keeps track of which codes are entered and when. This gives the homeowner knowledge of who has entered their house. Thanks to application integration and support for HomeKit, simple voice commands through Siri can lock and unlock the door.

The lock is not expected to hit the market until summer of 2015 and will be priced between $200 and $300.
