Silicon Labs and Allegion, a security solutions provider, have collaborated to further expand Internet of Things (IoT) capabilities to security products for both smart homes and commercial buildings. Allegion’s security solutions increasingly use Silicon Labs’ Wireless Gecko IoT portfolio, which supports Zigbee, Bluetooth and Z-Wave connectivity.

Allegion recently worked with Silicon Labs in developing the Zigbee-certified Schlage Connect Smart Deadbolt, a smart lock solution for consumers who are using a Zigbee home automation system. When paired with Key by Amazon and an Amazon Cloud Cam, a homeowner can give remote access to trusted visitors and family, as well as opt in to in-home delivery. The solution offers the conveniences of remote access management, in-home delivery, and compatibility with hands-free voice assistants or select monitored security panel partners.

“Connectivity has become an expected convenience that enhances the user experience across many products and solutions,” said Mark Lynn, Vice President of Engineering in Allegion’s Americas region, in a statement. “At Allegion, we’re driving innovation in a traditional industry—one where we’ve been known to create strong mechanical offerings and have built trust that we deliver on ever-evolving customer needs. Working with Silicon Labs allows us to integrate proven, flexible wireless connectivity in locks and other security devices that meets our complex compliance, certification and market demands.”
