Features Of The Lock

- Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity
The lock is operated using wireless connections that allow control of the lock from remote locations. The Bluetooth connectivity comes in handy with close proximity connections to different units including alarm systems and motion detectors. Bluetooth connectivity also comes in handy for remote door opening and closing using the control app while within the Bluetooth range.
The in-built Wi-Fi system on the other hand comes in handy with more long distance connections. It is utilized by the locks to allow monitoring of lock activity from greater distances away from the house. It also comes in handy for relaying of messages and notifications to the user.
- Weather resistant frame
The Schlage NDE Wireless Lock is made from water resistant and dust proof material which pretty much makes it resistant to damage as a result of exposure to the elements. This unique feature allows safe installation of the lock outdoors without having to worry about the lock malfunctioning or succumbing to wear and tear from contact with things like water or direct sun rays.
- Door position sensor
The sensor is located on the deadbolt strike plate section. This is designed to facilitate automatic locking of the door after it has been successfully open. That way, you don’t have to worry about having to spend time locking a door that you just spent time opening.
- Compatible with most key and lock systems
This is made possible by the standard ND prep feature present on the Schlage NDE wireless lock. This allows fast and easy installation of the lock onto existing deadbolt systems.

The use of batteries to operate the lock also comes as an advantage during installation as you do not have to worry much about getting the lock connected to the building’s power grid.
- Free exit lever
This feature allows keyless access through a locked door from the inner side of the room or the building. This makes using it a whole lot more convenient as you do not have to fumble with keys on both the way in and out.
