Premis Touchscreen Smart Lock
Works with Apple HomeKit
Kwikset’s first lock on Apple HomeKit, Premis makes your smartphone your key and controls your lock with voice commands. The free Premis app displays user history and lets you share access by sending user codes via email or text from your iOS device, including anytime access, one time within 24hrs., and limited by date/time. Through the Home App (already included on your iOS device) you can create “scenes” or automate other HomeKit devices collectively based on an event.

Customer Questions & Answers
- Q Can you replace the deadbolt with one that needs a key on both sides of the door instead of just ... answer nowAnswered by the admin
No, they do not have a double-sided version of this lock. If you need a double sided version the M210 mechanical lock is the best option as there are no electronic double-sided deadbolt.
- Answered by the admin
No, only if you wish to use it remotely from another location or outside of the Bluetooth range. If so you will need to use the Apple TV Hub.
- Q Does this lock have the capability to lock on its own after leaving your home automatically ? answer nowAnswered by the admin
Yes, it has an auto lock feature that you can turn on or off through a switch on the back.
- Q I'm thinking of installing this on a vacation rental unit - the door is exposed to the elements -... answer nowAnswered by the adminYes, the outside of the lock is designed for exposure to the elements.
- Q How would you access your house if you lost power or internet service, and didn't have your key?? answer nowAnswered by the adminWith the Premis lock even if you lose the internet the lock will still retain the last codes programmed into it. So as long as you have a code in the lock you can enter without a key or internet service.
- Answered by the admin No, this lock is not designed for that type of mounting. All glass doors require special locks such as the Adams Rite RT1050, or CL4000GD by Codelocks, or if you have an aluminum frame storefront type glass doors you'll need a Trilogy DL1200, DL1300, or E-Plex 3000. Make sure to select all of the accessories you will need when add this to your shopping cart.
- Answered by the admin While the cell phone is used to remote lock and unlock the door when paired with Apple TV, and for unlocking within Bluetooth range, it is not the only means of access. You can program a code into the lock so you can lock and unlock your door without the phone.
