Security and convenient access from anywhere
The aftermath of yesterday's muddy soccer game has left your carpets looking like a parade passed through, and you're hosting a dinner party tonight. Your trusted carpet-cleaning expert has given you a four-hour window, but you can't be away from work for that long to let him in. What do you do?
With remote-lock technology from Schlage, you can relax. Schlage LiNK technology lets you control your door locks from wherever you are. Simply have your contractor let you know when he arrives and deactivate the lock instantly to grant him access. Or easily program the system with a specialized code you can provide that will open your door only during the window he has specified. You can even verify at a glance that the door is locked again when he leaves. Your problem's solved — without interrupting your day.
Schlage Remote Lock Solution
Schlage LiNK is a user-installable remote-lock solution that's accessible from any Web-enabled computer and most Internet-enabled cell phones. The Schlage LiNK system uses advanced Z-Wave wireless technology to create a reliable, secure, highly expandable in-home network that connects compatible products and provides a convenient, centralized system of control.
How does it work?
The Schlage LiNK keypad lock replaces your existing entryway lock and broadcasts a Z-Wave signal to your network. The Schlage LiNK light module controls home lighting, and the Schlage LiNK bridge connects your Z-Wave network to the Internet via your existing home connection (a router is required).
The Schlage LiNK Web portal ties it all together. Using the Web portal and software you download to your PC or smartphone, you can instantly monitor and control all installed Schlage LiNK-compatible devices (as many as 232 devices via a single bridge) from wherever you are.
Using the Schlage LiNK interface, you can program your lock with up to 19 individual 4-digit codes, personalized for each person who requires access to your home. It can also provide text or email alerts to let you know immediately when your locks have been activated, and by whom.
Note: The lever version of the Schlage LiNK entry lock allows you to control it remotely; the deadbolt version must be physically turned after the lock has been remotely activated.What do I need to get started?

How can the system be expanded?
Additional Schlage LiNK locks, indoor and outdoor lighting modules, and network cameras can be easily added to the system. You can also add other Z-Wave devices that meet Schlage's security standards, such as Trane's energy-management thermostat and GE/Jasco lighting controls. Each additional device that's connected to your Z-Wave network adds to its power and range, so it's easy to build a network throughout your home.

Somewhat complex Installation
No wiring or electrical installation is required, but the Schlage LiNK entry lock must be installed in place of your existing door lock. This will require a Phillips-head screwdriver and will take approximately 30 minutes.
