Kwikset Z-Wave and ZigBee Locks
Kwikset did not have its own booth at CES 2013 but you could find its Z-Wave- and ZigBee-enabled door locks throughout the show: Lowe’s (Iris), ADT, Home Automation Inc., and all over the Z-Wave and ZigBee Pavilions (pictured).
Note: Kwikset is owned by Stanley Black & Decker. Black & Decker also makes automated door locks with some of the most elegant finishes in the business. B&D Also owns Baldwin, another maker of smart locks, as well as Weiser Lock, one of the first electronic, remote controllable door locks on the market, some 20 years ago.
