Kwikset has become a leader in the smart lock space, but for some their rounded Kevo lock design was too traditional. That’s why Kwikset has come out with the Kevo Contemporary.
Like with the original Kevo, the Kevo Contemporary offers a DIY smart lock solution with a neat touch-to-open feature. But instead of a traditional rounded look, the Kevo Contemporary thinks it’s hip to be square.
Of course all of the features you’ve come to expect from Kevo have carried through to the Kevo Contemporary, that includes being able to use your phone as a key, the ability to track who is coming and going with notifications, as well as plenty of smart home integrations ranging from integration with Nest, to Ring, Alexa, Apple Watch, Android Wear and IFTTT.
Kwikset has also announced the Obsidian, which also uses a similarly square design but drops traditional keys altogether in exchange for a capacitive numeric based touchscreen.
The Kevo Contemporary lock retails for $229. Obsidian retails for $148 at Amazon.
