latest electronic
lock from Kwikset
designed with
modern style and
security in mind.
The product offers
homeowners an
extremely slim,
modern, key-free
electronic lock that can be controlled

the first Kwikset electronic deadbolt
to forgo traditional keys in favor of a
low-profile design.

exterior touchscreen that quickly illu

minates upon touch for faster code
entry. The illuminated screen reveals
a white LED display designed for both
day and night lighting.
The exterior touchscreen features
SecureScreen technology, helping
prevent against unwanted entry com

monly associated with other touch-
screen products. Users are prompted
to touch two random numbers before
entering their access code to encour
-
age fingerprints across the screen.
In case the batteries run out,
Obsidian features a 9V terminal at the
bottom of the deadbolt exterior that
acts as a backup power source to dis

Otto Digital Lock
Otto was created by a team of con-
sumer hardware and home product
engineers from Microsoft, Apple and
GoPro who share 175 patents between

prietary robots mimicking a moody
teenager trying to repeatedly slam the
device more than 100,000 times at 60G
of force (two or three times more than
an average door slam) and 250,000+
cycles of locking and unlocking to test
for strength and durability.
The fleet of robots combined for
several hundred years of cumulative
durability and lifecycle testing.
To ensure seamless install, a mem

ber of Ottos concierge service will
come to a customer’s home to help set
up the device.

DOOR COMPONENTS
Quanex Top-Drain Sill
The Quanex Top-Drain Sill
eliminates errant water with two
layers of protection.
First, a primary seal stops
more than 99 percent of water before
a secondary channeling system drains
any water that may have passed.
Where most door sills incorporate
a high dam at the systems exterior,
the Top-Drain Sill’s internally incor
-
porated seal creates two elements of
protection.
With the Top-Drain Sill, Quanex
offers door manufacturers an effective
means of heightening performance
without fundamentally altering door
design. The company says no adjust
-
ments are necessary, as the Top-Drain
Sill is easily incorporated into the rail
assembly.
The Top-Drain Sill was designed by
the engineers at Quanex’s Homeshield
Engineered Components division.
