How It Works Schlage LiNK System Components It works like this: Through your computer or cell phone, the bridge receives a signal from your home's wireless network. The bridge sends another wireless signal to the deadbolt. The deadbolt is activated. Computer and Wireless Phone Interface A user-friendly interface is at the heart of the Schlage LiNK system and makes it easy to take advantage of all that Schlage LiNK has to offer. Simply log on to your computer or Internet-enabled phone and you're in control. With just a few simple clicks, you can grant entry to your home, see who's come home, and even add and delete user codes. System Requirements FAQs Do I need a wireless network in my home? No, but you will need a high speed Internet connection (cable modem, dsl, etc.) and an open port on your router to plug in the bridge. What kind of cell phone do I need to have? Nearly any modern cell phone can receive text alerts from Schlage LiNK. But to take full advantage of the system's features, you'll need a data enabled phone platform like Android, BlackBerry, or iPhone. To verify your phone is compatible with the Schlage LiNK System, please check with your carrier. Do I have to pay to download the software to my phone? It depends. Some service providers charge a fee, while others don't. To know for sure, you'll need to check with your carrier. What is the range of the Schlage LiNK bridge? The Schlage LiNK bridge can relay signals up to 100 feet--even through walls. Without walls in the way, it can broadcast even farther. The included light module can increase the range of the system by functioning as a repeater. Does the system require a monthly subscription fee? A minimal monthly subscription fee is required. Even if you choose not to subscribe, Schlage LiNK will still function as a keypad deadbolt. Is it secure? Like all Schlage products, Schlage LiNK is very secure. The online portal features security measures similar to those used in online banking systems. The locks are tested beyond ANSI Grade 2 standards for residential use. Can you really lock and unlock the door remotely? Yes, for the Schlage wireless lever lock, you can remotely lock or unlock the door by clicking on the activate button next to your lock on the Schlage LiNK web interface or cell phone interface. For the Schlage wireless deadbolt however, you can remotely activate the lock which makes it possible for the door to be unlocked by someone turning the outside thumbturn. Since door frames arent always aligned and a deadbolt can require more leverage to engage or disengage, the deadbolt requires manual operation. How is the deadbolt installed? The Schlage wireless deadbolt installs in the same user-friendly manner as standard Schlage door deadbolts. The deadbolts are designed to fit standard door preparations and do not require wiring. How long is the battery life? How will I know when to replace it? The Schlage wireless deadbolt uses standard batteries and is designed to use very little power to operate. The included batteries should last up to 2-3 years. There is a battery life indicator on the deadbolt itself, as well as on the Schlage LiNK web interface. You can also program the Schlage LiNK interface to send email or text alerts when the battery is low. Z-Wave. The brains behind the brilliance. Z-Wave is a next-generation wireless "ecosystem" that lets all your home electronics talk to each other, and to you, via remote control. It uses simple, reliable, low-power radio waves that easily travel through walls, floors, and cabinets. Z-Wave functionality can be added to almost any electronic device in your house, even devices that you wouldn't ordinarily think of as "intelligent," such as appliances, window shades, thermostats, and home lighting. The Schlage LiNK solution lets you control these devices in ways that give you complete command, even when you're not at home yourself. You can control your Z-Wave household remotely from a computer and the Internet from anywhere in the world...even through your cell phone.
