Schlage today announced that its HomeKit-compatible Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt will be available for purchase beginning in November, with pre-orders that are kicking off today. Priced at $229, the Schlage Sense was previewed earlier this year at CES and is the first door lock that works with Apple's HomeKit home automation service.

With HomeKit integration, the Schlage Sense will allow homeowners to control their door lock with Siri voice commands, and it has the built-in end-to-end encryption that Apple requires of all HomeKit-compatible products.

The Schlage Sense is able to manage as many as 30 access codes through its accompanying app, which will let users create and delete codes at will, check the lock status, and view in-and-out activity. Unlocking the deadbolt can be done via the iPhone app, through Siri, or through a built-in touchscreen, and installing it can be done without professional help.

"We are thrilled to announce the release of the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt into retail. This launch has been highly anticipated, as we continue to reimagine and develop innovative keyless solutions that integrate smart-home technology," said Steve Down, Allegion residential leader. "As a leader in technology and innovation, the Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt is the newest offering in our suite of electronic products designed to offer consumers the strength, style and convenience that they expect from our brand, and now that also includes support for Apple HomeKit technology."

Schlage is selling the Sense Smart Deadbolt in two of its iconic styles, Camelot and Century, and it will be available in several finishes including Matte Black, Satin Nickel, and Aged Bronze, to match a range of home styles.

The Schlage Sense Smart Deadbolt can be pre-ordered from Amazon.com, HomeDepot.com, and Build.com for $229. It will ship out in November.

Update: Schlage announced at CES 2016 that a Schlage Sense app for Apple Watch and support for Android devices will launch in 2016.

Ugly and bulky. And how would someone in a wheelchair reach the keypad without a phone? They should've just combined the keypad with the door handle to keep it simple.
Umm, the same way they'd use the key...?

No you don't--Just type in your code on the keypad. No need to take the key out of your pocket either. It's far better than using a key, trust me on this.

You can also give out temporary codes to friends and family for when they're watching your house that you can delete later. No need for multiple key copies.
You can get that without a "smart" Homekit lock though, my parents have had it for years and it cost far less than this.

Yeah, keying in a code is easier but if my lock is talking to my phone I want it to be able to do more than just act as a keypad. It should be easily able to tell when I'm near via Bluetooth and unlock the door as I approach.
