Westinghouse Security Debuts With Home Automation Hub Built into Smart Door Lock

Just as interesting: the fob

Even as interesting as the door lock/hub is the SmartFob keyfob (SAL-SF500), which can be used for many purposes, not just as a door opener. I’d take a few of these as standard controllers for a Z-Wave home control system. It has a biometric and keypad reader with gesture/touch control.

Users can define what kind of swipe triggers what kind of event. It has always amazed me that standard garage door openers (for example) can be accessed by anyone with the garage remote. This device would require users to enter some kind of code or swipe their authorized fingertip.

There’s even a built-in OLED screen for configuring the device.
