“By continuously listening to our consumers’ residential style preferences, we are able to deliver market-leading electronic locks that provide all of the industry leading access control, security and convenience features, while delivering the aesthetics that today’s homeowners demand,” states Keith Brandon, director of residential access solutions for Kwikset. Brandon was quoted by CE Pro after winning the Manufacturers’ Excellence Award at CEDIA a few months back.

914 Series Features

The wireless 914 Series Z-Wave Deadbolt supports up to 30 different user access codes, allowing family, friends, and temporary guests to enter their own codes and benefit from personalized Z-Wave settings (if connected to a Z-Wave network). Codes are easily created and deleted, so you can give temporary access to housesitters, maintenance workers, etc. New to the 914 Series is the MasterCode option, which allows you to give one user complete control over the system and prevent other users from adding or deleting codes.

The deadbolt operates on a one-touch motorized locking mechanism to enable remote locking and unlocking. Use a Z-Wave controller or a smartphone app to lock/unlock your door from anywhere.

A backup keyway allows you to lock/unlock the door manually with a turnkey, the same way you would use a key with a traditional deadbolt. To protect against lock bumping (type of lock picking), the 914 Series deadbolt features BumpGuard, a patented side locking bar that replaces the traditional pin and tumbler locking mechanism.

Additionally, the 914 deadbolt’s new tapered design offers enhanced compatibility with misaligned doors. Even if your door is a little off kilter, you will be able to lock the deadbolt without having to pull and push the door repeatedly to shut it.
