Kwikset SmartCode Giveaway
This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to commentor #17: Amy Brewer!
When I pack to leave our house, there is a continuous list of about 735 things scrolling through my mind that I need to remember to bring with us. Snacks, sippy cups, diapers (did my husband ever replace the last one?), wipes, wallet, phone, keys… and, unfortunately, there are often days when something is forgotten.
When I don’t have my phone? Well, I just don’t make any calls. But when I don’t have the keys and I’ve walked out and shut the door? Not good. Very, very not good.
What’s almost just as bad is when I do actually have the keys but I can’t seem to dig them out when I really need them. When we’ve just gotten home from a day playing outside and my kids are hot and tired and everyone just wants to get inside for water and a rest… the last thing I want to be doing is rummaging to the bottom of the diaper bag to get us inside the front door.
Fortunately, both of these situations never have to happen again due to Kwikset’s electronic touchpad deadbolt, aptly named SmartCode.
Completely eliminating the hassles from forgetting or finding your keys, SmartCode provides not only safety for your home but a convenience that will leave you marveling at it every time.
When the boxes arrived, I have to admit that I was a little more than slightly apprehensive about us installing the SmartCode ourselves. However, the instructions were detailed and easy to follow and I am proud to say that with only a screwdriver and 4 AA batteries we were able to accomplish the entire task (and in actually not all that long of time).
The benefits of having this customized, stylish, high-tech lock from Kwikset were immediate. From a visual standpoint, it is small and sleek and just looks good. With your choice of three different finishes (Lifetime Brass, Satin Nickel or Venetian Bronze) as well as three possibilities for the accompanying knob (Arlington Handleset, Juno Knob or Tustin Lever), this will go well with any type of home and décor.
Selecting and entering a code was easily done and I love having the option of adding in unique access codes that can simply be changed or deleted later. Instead of having to go out and make a spare key or hide one in the yard for house guests or repairmen, we can just give them a code for the duration that it is needed and then quickly remove it afterward to ensure the house is still safe and extra keys aren’t floating around anywhere. The convenience and added security are great!
However, the largest benefit is, of course, that the SmartCode system is keyless (although a key can be used if needed as a backup). The electronic touchpad is brightly lit so it can easily be seen day or night and the motorized deadbolt can be used with a touch of a single button. No more stuffing a key in my shoe when I go for a walk, shifting groceries around when we come home, switching my daughter to the other hip as I pat all my pockets or being locked out altogether, the SmartCode from Kwikset is safety, security and convenience all rolled into one great look!
