SimpliciKey is very pleased and excited to introduce our latest product aimed to provide convenience through technology: KeyCloud.

A web-based system that enables users to control multiple home devices with the touch of a button, SimpliciKey’s KeyCloud allows you to safely unlock/lock your home from anywhere in the world via smartphone or computer, as well as control interior lights and other KeyCloud compatible devices.

KeyCloud provides the ultimate convenience to homeowners, with no subscriptions fees, and controls SimpliciKey electronic door locks already in use in homes across America.

Building upon the SimpliciKey electronic door lock’s three easy modes of entry—keyfob, keypad, and standard key—KeyCloud provides the ability to remotely operate and manage the deadbolt, as well as compatible socket relay modules for home lights, without compromising security.

Working with Apple, Android devices and any web-browser, KeyCloud not only allows convenient and secure home access from anywhere, but also offers a host of control features:
• Assign keycodes and keyfobs to specific household members
• Check the status of each lock in the home
• Access usage history of all keycodes and keyfobs
• Set rules and parameters for each lock as well as home lights and other KeyCloud compatible devices

Simply plug in and register KeyCloud to access all control features, check the battery level of each lock and keyfob in the home and set up customizable usage alerts. KeyCloud also enables users to create scenes such as lighting schemes to turn on lights before residents arrive or set the perfect mood for a family gathering.

“KeyCloud was created after current and potential customers expressed interest in home connectivity and control,” says Jason Pizzillo, President of SimpliciKey, LLC. “We listened to our customers and are excited to bring this new level of convenience and access to homeowners.”

Simple to install and setup, KeyCloud is scheduled to be available in Q3 2013.
