REDWOOD CITY, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Level Home Inc., the company redefining the smart home, today announced Level Lock+, the next generation of its world-class smart lock product line. Only available at Apple, Level Lock+ seamlessly integrates Apple’s Home Key technology, allowing homeowners to securely lock and unlock their homes by simply tapping their iPhone or Apple Watch on Level Lock+, once their Home Key has been added to Apple Wallet. Apple Home Keys take full advantage of the privacy and security features built into iPhone and Apple Watch, allowing Level Lock+ to provide world-class security alongside everyday convenience and beautiful design.
Now with Apple Home Keys, users can conveniently and securely enter their homes and experience iPhone Home Key functions such as power reserve. With power backup, if a user’s iPhone needs charging, they can still use Home Key access for up to five hours.
“Our habits are more digitally intertwined than ever before. Consumer behavior has evolved to rely on technological improvements to make secure access more convenient,” says John Martin, co-founder and CEO of Level Home. “Level Lock+ couldn’t have come at a more perfect time – this is something iPhone or Apple Watch users can use, and we’re seeing people ready to integrate smart locks into their daily routine.”
Intuitive design and technology give Level Lock+ a modern look, consistent with Level’s renowned invisible design, along with industry-leading NFC capabilities. Hidden within the lock itself, Level Lock+’s sleek design is in direct contrast to smart locks on the market. The gearbox locks and unlocks smoothly in the toughest external conditions and is powered by a CR2 battery cleverly hidden in the bolt. Level Lock+ is BHMA AAA certified – the industry’s highest standard for safety and durability – and users can expect the same easy installation as previous generations, requiring just a screwdriver.
“Apple Home Keys technology makes your iPhone or Apple Watch your key,” says Ken Goto, co-founder and CTO of Level Home. “With Level Lock+, it was important to us to advance the technology and security inside our smart locks with the latest and greatest solutions available, without any sacrifices in terms of size or design.”
Beyond the Apple Home app, users can get a number of features within the Level app, including full in-app control of the lock, shared access with guests, automatic locking and unlocking, and the ability to enter with a touch of a finger, cards, or the optional accessory Level Keypad.
Level Lock+ is sold exclusively at all Apple stores in the US and at www.apple.com for $329 in both Satin Nickel (in stores and online) and Matte Black (online only) finishes.
