How will Nexia work for you
It is easy to overlook things in our busy day-to-day lives, but it is comforting to have a back-up plan.
Busy Family - don't worry about your child losing or forgetting their key. With a Nexia enabled lock from Schlage, each member of the family can have their own 4-digit code that will be easy to remember. If relatives are visiting, program a temporary code for their stay.
Watch what is happening while away - are the kids playing in the backyard, or has the dog escaped again? Has the package that you ordered earlier in the week been delivered safely on the porch? Monitor your home from your phone, tablet, or computer with a Nexia compatible camera.
Stay relaxed on vacation - are you leaving on vacation and can't remember if the front door is locked or the thermostat is turned down? Simply log in to the Nexia portal to check the status of the lock or adjust the thermostat setting.
Light up your home - no one likes to come home to a dark house. Nexia allows you to turn lights on/off remotely so your house is well lit when you arrive.
