Kwikset Halo: The uncomplicated wi-fi smart locks @ CES 2022

Kwikset Halo Smart LocksKeeping your home secure is important to anyone, whether you own or rent. But, traditional locks require you to carry keys and are only usable when you are in front of them. The ability to check the status of your door, or even let in a family member who has forgotten their key is a big advantage. That is what the Kwikset Halo smart locks are all about.

What are Halo locks?
Halo locks are Wi-Fi-enabled smart locks that can be controlled with your smartphone using the Kwikset app. Kwikset Halo is the latest in smart lock technology, and it offers ultimate security and convenience. With Kwikset Halo, you can manage your locks from anywhere there is an internet connection. Lock and unlock, manage user codes, view lock activity, receive lock notifications, and much more!

The company offers several different products within the Kwikset Halo brand, each with its own set of features.

Halo Touch
The Halo Touch integrates biometrics into the lock, allowing you to lock and unlock the door with just your fingerprint. It can hold up to 100 fingerprints for 50 users, which is a huge collection of users. While a standard home might not have that many people coming and going, a larger rental property might, with cleaning staff, owners, maintenance workers, etc.

All of the user management is done from the app, making it easy to add and remove new people, or even rescan fingers. And because Kwikset is a lock company first, you know that the security is still going to be top-notch. You can get one right now for $249.
