SimpliSafe's Ultra-Thin Smart Lock Will Launch in September

BOSTON, Aug. 21, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SimpliSafe®, maker of award-winning home security systems, today announced the release of the SimpliSafe Smart Lock, designed to secure your entire home with a single touch.

At 0.9 inches, the SimpliSafe Smart Lock is the thinnest on the market,1 adding a powerful layer of protection to a home's most vulnerable entry point, the front door. It joins SimpliSafe’s comprehensive array of fully integrated home protection technologies and services.

The majority of break-ins happen through unlocked entry points. The SimpliSafe Smart Lock ensures your doors are always locked — even if you forget. Set up the SimpliLock™ customizable auto-timer so that your door locks every sixty seconds. Or lock it from anywhere in the world — and arm your system at the same time — with the SimpliSafe app.2 The SimpliSafe Smart Lock can also be locked or unlocked using the included PIN Pad, with the SimpliSafe Keypad or Key Fob, or with your original key.  

"Many smart locks are large and bulky — they stick out from the door, physically and visually," says Dirk Ahlgrim, Head of Design at SimpliSafe. "We designed the SimpliSafe Smart Lock to be slim and modern, as well as easy and fast to install."

The SimpliSafe Smart Lock works closely with the complete SimpliSafe system to protect your home inside and out. If someone is approaching your home, the SimpliSafe Video Doorbell Pro and SimpliSafe Security Camera alert your phone. You can engage the entire system by saying “Alexa, arm SimpliSafe”— or using your Google Assistant or SimpliSafe app2 — arming every sensor-guarded door and window, activating motion and glassbreak sensors, and locking your doors.

"Imagine being able to lock down your home from anywhere," said Chad Laurans, SimpliSafe's founder and CEO. "With the SimpliSafe Smart Lock and SimpliLock™ automatic lock timer, you’ll always know your home is safe. You'll never have to sit through a meeting worrying about whether you left the front door unlocked. You'll never have to stay home for a contractor again, or panic when your child leaves her backpack at school with the house key inside.”
