Weiser’s tips for securing your home this holiday season

TORONTO, Ont. — It’s that time of the year when Canadians begin to book train tickets and flights or plan a road trip for a holiday escape.

But as the cities begin to clear out, many places across Canada will become virtual ghost towns, presenting burglars with the perfect opportunity for residential break-ins.

“In Canada, a break-in happens every 90 seconds,” says Steve Kolobaric of Weiser, one of Canada’s most trusted lockset manufacturers. “It is especially important to know how to protect ourselves and our valuables during times when our homes are most vulnerable.”

Whether you’re headed to Grandma’s house for a cozy Christmas surrounded by family, or booking a fabulous vacation somewhere sunny to ring in the new year, Weiser is offering up tips for home protection and things to keep in mind before heading out the door for an extended period over the holidays:

  1. Be wary of social media. As fun as it might be to brag about that family vacation and your escape of Canada’s harsh and bitter winter, “checking-in” and posting other statuses about your current whereabouts is like advertising that your home is sitting empty and at risk for thieves and break-ins. Wait until you’ve safely returned home to upload all of your great selfies and family snaps.

  2. Lock your doors. Might seem like an obvious tip – but it would surprise most homeowners to find out that nearly half of all burglaries occur simply by walking through an unlocked front door! It’s important that all doors – front, back and side doors – have a reliable lockset with a working deadbolt lock. All exterior doors should have deadbolts with at least a one-inch throw bolt.

  3. Have a trusted neighbour check in from time to time. Whether it is to clear out your mailbox or shovel your driveway, it’s great to have someone checking in on your property, especially if you plan on being gone for a longer period; however, do not under any circumstances try the “hide-a-key” approach, in order to give them access. Most criminals know about the best hiding spots: under the mat, mailbox, top of door frame, etc. It’s better and far more secure to install a secure lock that enables you to provide access to specific people:

    • A keyless entry system like the Weiser Premis is compatible with your iPhone; if you forgot to lock your door or want to grant a trusted person access to your home to feed your pets, water your plants or retreive your mail, simply ask Siri to lock or unlock the door.

    • SmartCode locks allow you to provide a personalized code to friends, fmaily or neighbours that will grant them temporary access to your home.

    • Weiser SmartKey locks use a patented side-bar locking technology that has proven tougher to crack than a traditional pin-and-tumbler lock design and it has a unique feature that allows you to re-key your lock yourself without removing it from the door or having to use a locksmith.

  4. Hide your valuables. If you have a safe, great! But if not, ensure you’re keeping things like laptops, expensive cameras, stereos and other equipment away from all windows. Tuck them away in closets, drawers and other safe spots away from visible locations that can be seen from the outside.

  5. Set an electronic timer for lights. This is a great way to keep up regular lighting patterns as opposed to just having one porch or living room light on at all times – a dead giveaway. You can also do this for some radio and television sets to simulate normal use and noise.

“Make sure that the only person breaking and entering into your home this season is Santa Claus,” adds Kolobaric. “With these easy, common sense tips you can rest easy knowing your house is safe and secure this holiday season.”

SmartLocks provide peace of mind that your home is safe and secure

TORONTO, Ont. — Summer is here, and with it comes good times with family and friends.

It is a time of year when vacations are most common — escapes to the cottage, camping excursions, road trips. But while you are out making new memories, you want the peace of mind that your home and valubales are safe and secure. With the latest innovations in door locks, you can.

“Today’s SmartLocks are integrated into your digital world,” says Steve Kolobaric, Marketing Manager for Weiser Locks. “No longer do you need to leave a key with a enighbour or hide it under the Welcome mat where mosqt anyone can pick it up and start going through your home. You can not only control access to your home from wherever you are, you can also monitor the comings and goings, all from your smartphone or tablet.”

When we are gone for an extended period, it is not uncommon to ask a neighbour, friend or family member to check in your home, collect the mail, water the plants, maybe even feed the fish or take care of another pet. But innovative new SmartLocks allow you to enlist some help in keeping an eye your home without compromising the long-term security of your home.

  • Weiser Smart Key — Uniquely designed to allow you to quickly and easily re-key your deadbolt without the need of a locksmith, the Smart Key is ideal for allowing people temporary access to your home. And with a patented side-bar locking technology that has proven tougher to crack than a traditional pin-and-tumbler lock design, it keeps your home safe.

  • Weiser Kevo — Kevo Bluetooth-enabled SmartLocks provide users with the industry’s only Touch-to-Open experience. With Kevo, your phone becomes your key, allowing users to lock or unlock the door with the touch of a finger to the smart lock when an authorized device is within Bluetooth range. This patented technology adds a level of convenience unmatched by other smart locks by eliminating the need to fumble for keys.

  • Weiser Premis — Premis is a touchscreen deadbolt that works with Apple HomeKit to provide homeowners an easy, secure way to control their home security from an iPhone®, iPad® or iPod Touch®. With Premis, homeowners can unlock and lock the door using Siri®, while also taking advantage of best-in-class, patented security features unique to Weiser smart locks, including SecureScreen™ and the latest version of Weiser SmartKey® security.

Keep your cottage safe and secure when you can’t be there

TORONTO, Ont. — The snow is long gone, the NHL playoffs are winding down and the bugs are back with a vengeance.

In Canada, that can only mean one thing: It’s time to get the cottage open.

The cottage is a place of tranquillity and escape. Barbecues on the deck. Splashing in the lake. Swapping stories around the campfire. Valuable time with family and friends. Even more valuable time away from the Rat Race.

“But, sadly, few of us have the opportunity to spend every day of the summer in our own personal oasis,” says Steve Kolobaric, Weiser Marketing Manager for Spectrum Brands Inc. “The cottage is an extension of our homes, and we want to be sure we keep it safe and secure when we can’t be there — or when we are renting it out to others.”

Weiser offers the following tips to keep your cottage safe in your absence:

  • Get to know your neighbours. It may sound obvious, but there are few better deterrents to wrongdoing than live eyes. Having a neighbour you know and trust can keep an eye on things while you are away. And you can return the favour when your neighbour has to return to reality.

  • Take your valuables with you. The cottage should not be the place to stash your expensive jewelry or stock with state-of-the-art home theatre equipment. Sure, maybe you have a TV for those rainy days, but reduce the incentive to break in by keeping the valuable items away.

  • Secure the windows. Invest in good window locks and use a window bar (even the shaft of an old hockey stick cut to length) to wedge windows closed and ensure they can’t be shimmied open.

  • Secure your cottage for renters. Not only is a cottage a great place for family fun, it can also be a source of income. But how comfortable are you handing over the keys to your summer home to a bunch of strangers? The Weiser SmartKey is not only one of the most secure deadbolts on the market — using a patented side-bar locking technology that has proven tougher to crack than a traditional pin-and-tumbler lock design — but it also allows you to temporarily re-key your lock without needing the services of a locksmith. Now you can re-key your lock to work with a key you leave with the renters, and then switch it back after their time in your place is done.

  • Monitor the cottage remotely. If by chance you have wifi at the cottage, the Weiser Premis integrates with Apple HomeKit to allow you to control access to your cottage from your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch no matter where you are. Use Siri to remotely lock or unlock your door or monitor who comes and goes with specialized codes assigned to each user or visitor to your cottage.

New handlesets can give your entrance a whole new look

TORONTO, Ont. — Spring is the season of renewal.

Trees bud, flowers bloom and the grass comes back to life. Temperatures rise (the snow melts!) and the days are longer. In this spirit, it is also a good time to give your home a refresh. A spring cleaning from top to bottom is a good place to start, but a few small moves outside can enhance the curb appeal of your home.

“First impressions are vital, and the first time most people will encounter your home is at the front door,” says Steve Kolobaric, Marketing Manager of Weiser for Spectrum Brands Inc. “It may seem like a small thing, but simply updating your lockset and door handle can have a transformative effect on the main entrance to your house — and it has the added benefit of improving your security as well.”

Depending on your needs and style, there are several choices available to homeowners seeking a new look:

  • Welcome home. There is no need to sacrifice style for security. Add a bit of elegance to your front door with the Weiser Hawthorne handleset, which is also a Smartkey lock. Smartkey technology allows you to temporarily re-key your lock in seconds if you need to grant access to a neighbour, friend or releativer when you are away. You can safely leave them a key knowing that when you return, you can put your lock back to its original setting so the spare key will no longer work.

  • A simple touch. Fumbling with your keys is a thing of the past. Even with your hands full, the Weiser Kevo will open with a simple touch of your finger. Paired with your mobile device over Bluetooth, complete control of your home’s security is quite literally at the tip of your fingers. Its low-profile design fits with any décor, with a blue light that illuminates then the lock is activated, and turns green when it opens.

  • Safe and secure from anywhere. The future is here. Sleek and modern in design, the Weiser Premis is a touchscreen lock that sends a message — your home looks good, and is protected by the technology of tomorrow. Compatible with Apple HomeKit, the Premis puts access to your home in the palm of your hand with your iPhone, no matter where you may be. Use Siri or touch commands on your phone to lock or unlock your door, track who comes and goes and give access to people who need to get it in — all remotely.

The Weiser Obsidian offers a sleek, modern look.
It is the most low-profile smart lock on the market.

Weiser introduces Obsidian, the industry’s most low-profile smart lock

TORONTO, Ont. — Pushing the boundaries of design and technology, the Obsidian — the latest addition to Wesier’s line of smart locks — is a slim, modern and key-free lock that will keep your home secure while adding a flashy new element of style to its look.

The Obsidian, introduced at the Consumer Electronics Show 2017 in Las Vegas, is the lowest profile smart lock in the industry, with a dark, sleek touchscreen that pushes the boundaries of design in the touchpad and touchscreen lock category. Obsidian will be available for purchase in Spring 2017. With the introduction of Obsidian, Weiser offers consumers a sleek, modern smart lock that completely eliminates the need for traditional keys.

“We’ve created a truly breakthrough smart lock that excites style-conscious homeowners who previously steered away from the touchscreen category due to design,” says Steve Kolobaric, Weiser Marketing Manager for Spectrum Brands Inc. “Obsidian is the slimmest key-free smart lock available, seamlessly blending modern home décor without compromising technology and security.”

Features of the Obsidian include:

  • Low-Profile Design: Obsidian is the only key-free, low profile smart lock in the industry. Projecting less than an inch off the door, Obsidian is an aesthetically pleasing smart lock option that delivers convenience and security.

  • Convenient Touchscreen: Obsidian features a convenient responsive exterior touchscreen that quickly illuminates upon touch for faster code entry. The illuminated screen reveals a crisp white LED display designed for both day and night lighting.

  • Patented Security: Obsidian’s touchscreen exterior features SecureScreen™ technology, helping prevent against unwanted entry using patented security features. With SecureScreen, users are prompted to touch two random numbers before entering their access code as to encourage fingerprints across the screen.

  • Standalone Home Access: Obsidian will also be available as a standalone smart lock, giving homeowners key-free convenience.

Obsidian will be available for purchase in Spring 2017 for the suggested retail prices of $239.99. Read the Obsidian fact sheet for additional information.

Weiser’s Bluetooth-enabled smart lock products continue to expand

TORONTO, Ont. — Weiser’s Kevo revolutionized smart home technology with the introduction of the first Bluetooth-enabled home lock, and the roster of Kevo products continues to expand.

Introduced in 2013, the Kevo shaped the smart lock category as the industry’s first touch-to-open smart lock. Since then, the quickly expanding product line includes Kevo smart locks, a smart lock conversion kit and a remote service upgrade. In addition to product offerings, Kwikset continues to diversify Kevo’s compatibility with several smart home hubs and product integrations, including If Not This, then That (IFTTT).

The entire Kevo product range was in the showcase at the Consumer Electronics Show 2017 in Las Vegas:

Kevo™ Touch-to-Open Smart Locks

Kevo Bluetooth-enabled smart locks provide users with the industry’s only Touch-to- Open experience. With Kevo, your phone becomes your key, allowing users to lock or unlock the door with the touch of a finger to the smart lock when an authorized device is within Bluetooth range. This patented technology adds a level of convenience unmatched by other smart locks by eliminating the need to fumble for keys.

  • Who needs it: Homeowners looking for a DIY smart lock solution that’s compatible with their smartphone and offers unmatched convenience features like Touch-To-Open technology.

Kevo Convert

Kevo Convert is an easy-to-use conversion kit that transforms Weiser and other manufacturers’ deadbolts into smart locks at an affordable price. Upon purchasing Kevo Convert, quickly replace the interior of your current lock — within minutes transforming your existing deadbolt into a smart lock. Kevo Convert gives you the ability to control your existing deadbolt through the proven, simple-to-use Kevo app. Kevo Convert is available for purchase at select retailers for $199 MSRP.

  • Who needs it: Renters or style-conscious homeowners who want to enjoy the convenience of a smart lock but don’t want to fully replace their current door hardware.

Kevo Plus

Kevo Plus adds remote access capabilities and enhanced features to Kevo and Kevo Convert. Kevo Plus establishes direct, online connectivity to Kevo, allowing users to lock and unlock Kevo from their smartphones from anywhere in the world. Kevo Plus is a service upgrade for Kevo and Kevo Convert. The upgrade is available through the Kevo app or MyKevo.com for $179.99, with no monthly cost or associated fees.

  • Who needs it: Any Kevo or Kevo Convert owner who wants the added benefit of remote locking and unlocking their door. Use Kevo Plus to lock the door behind the kids when they get home from school, to let a contractor, dog walker or housecleaner in or checking lock status when the homeowner is away from home.

Smart Home Integrations

Weiser engineers its Kevo portfolio so its smart locks and conversion kits integrate with a wide range of smart home products, ensuring homeowners can easily configure a smarter home.

  • Android Wear: Lock or unlock Kevo directly from an untethered Android Wear device, like Moto360 smart watch, for on-the-go convenience.

  • Honeywell Total Connect Comfort Wi-Fi Thermostats: Seamlessly connect Kevo to compatible Honeywell thermostats to enable greater energy saving potential with each lock or unlock of Kevo.

  • IFTTT: Build applets on IFTTT that trigger actions with other smart home devices in the home upon locking or unlocking Kevo smart locks and smart lock conversion kits.

  • Nest Learning Thermostat: Trigger home temperature adjustments and energy savings with Nest Learning Thermostat by locking or unlocking Kevo.

  • Ring Video Doorbell: Sync Ring and Kevo to see and speak with guests at the front door via the Ring app, then unlock Kevo, all from a smartphone.

  • SkyBell HD Doorbell: Kevo is the first smart lock to directly integrate with Skybell, allowing homeowners to unlock the door for guests direct from the Skybell app.

Kevo users can no build IFTTT applets triggered by locking and unlocking their smart locks

TORONTO, Ont. — Canada’s leading manufacturer of home door locks has launched an If This Then That (IFTTT) channel for its popular Kevo™ platform, which includes first and second-generation Bluetooth-enabled Touch-to-Open smart locks.

The channel allows Kevo users interested in building a connected home the ability to integrate their smart locks with more smart home products than ever before using simple connections called Applets.

Kevo Touch-to-Open Smart Locks

Kevo is a Bluetooth-enabled smart lock that uses Bluetooth Low Energy 4.0 technology to turn your smartphone into an electronic key (eKey). Kevo locks and unlocks quickly with the touch of a finger while your smartphone remains in your purse or pocket, eliminating the need to fumble for keys.

In 2013, Weiser became the first manufacturer to introduce a Bluetooth-enabled smart lock with the launch of Kevo. Since then, Weiser has grown the Kevo platform to include a smart lock conversion kit (Kevo Convert) and a remote service solution (Kevo Plus). All Kevo products are backed with Weiser’s promise to deliver convenience and secure smart lock solutions for every home.

If This, Then That (IFTTT)

IFTTT is free web-based service that allows users to create Applets, or event-based programming triggers, to automate a number of actions or tasks between different web applications, apps and physical devices that its users own. According to the IFTTT website, the IFTTT community has grown to include more than 100,000 developers and millions of users and partners since its launch in 2010, reinforcing the growing demand from smart home enthusiasts for interoperability between their devices.

Kevo Applets on IFTTT

With the launch of the Kevo channel on IFTTT, users can automate their Kevo smart locks to trigger actions with other devices in the home. The channel features more than 10 Applets ranging from video monitoring upon locking Kevo and turning on lights when Kevo is unlocked. For a full list of Applets, visit IFTTT.com/Kevo.

Kevo is available at retailers for $249 MSRP. For a complete list of retailers or more information, please visit weiserlock.com. Get social with Weiser on Facebook and Follow Weiser on Twitter @WeiserLock.

The Weiser Community

At Weiser, part of the Spectrum Brands Hardware and Home Improvement Group (HHI), we recognize that the vitality of the communities in which our employees live and work is an important factor in our success. Our involvement in the community focuses primarily on certain aspects of Community Revitalization and Education:

  • Education - Our emphasis is on: (a) engineering (electrical, electronic, industrial, manufacturing, materials, or mechanical) programs at colleges and universities important to our recruiting and training efforts; (b) school-based math, science, and technology programs that prepare students for college education or for positions that provide technical support for engineers; (c) school-based vocational and skills training programs for construction and related trades and for home improvement.

We also support grants to established organizations in the following areas within the communities where our employees live and work:

  1. Civic - Organizations engaged in housing-related programs, municipals and statewide improvements, environmental issues;
  2. Cultural - Organizations such as science centers, museums, libraries, music organizations; and
  3. Health/Human Services and Youth - Organizations with programs that advance community health; promote job skills and values strengthen the family unit and promote social and economic well-being in the community.

Special Consideration is given to programs that support a diverse cross-section of the population.

Each of HHI's sites are encouraged to initiate its own community involvement programs and budgets for donations annually. Building relationships in our communities is extremely important to Spectrum Brands, and we are proud to dedicate our time, resources and finances to these and other worthy causes.
