The Weiser® brand of Spectrum Brands, Inc. – Hardware & Home Improvement Division will reveal its latest Bluetooth smart lock, Aura™, at CES 2019. Aura from Weiser provides an affordable entry point for those looking to upgrade to a smart lock with simple programming capabilities through a smartphone. Weiser will display the keypad Bluetooth-enabled smart lock at its CES booth (#42137, CES Tech West | Sands Expo, Smart Home Marketplace) for media representatives interested in learning more.

With Aura, Weiser offers homeowners an affordable smart lock that can be programmed and managed from the Weiser mobile app on compatible smartphones while the homeowner is within Bluetooth range of the lock. Homeowners can schedule guest access, generate and manage up to 250 user codes, and share lock management with others from the convenience of their smartphone. Aura can be locked and unlocked using the keypad, a traditional key or through the mobile app when within Bluetooth range of the lock.

Top Reasons to Choose Aura:
● Easy-to-use Weiser app makes managing Aura straightforward and uncomplicated within Bluetooth range of the lock
● Simple installation for those just entering the smart lock and smart home space
● Advanced security features totally unique to Weiser deadbolts

Homeowners will feel secure knowing Aura features the Weiser patented SmartKey Security™, protecting against common and forced entry break-in methods like lock picking, lock bumping and torque attacks. SmartKey Security also allows homeowners to reset their security by re-keying their locks quickly and easily; rendering lost, loaned or unreturned keys useless.

“Aura is a straightforward smart lock solution for customers who have not yet embraced the idea of a smart home,” says Steve Kolobaric, Marketing Manager, Weiser, Spectrum Brands Inc. – Hardware & Home Improvement Division. “With both user code and traditional key access, as well as easy programming and simple management capabilities without platform complexities, Aura will appeal to people looking to add style and convenience to their lives at an affordable price.”

Homeowners will be able to purchase Aura in 2019 at select retailers for the suggested retail price of $199. The smart lock will be available in two finishes: Satin Nickel and Iron Black.

CES attendees can view the Aura at the Weiser CES booth (#42137, CES Tech West | Sands Expo, Smart Home Marketplace) now through Jan. 11, 2019. Get social with Weiser on Facebook and Follow Weiser on Twitter @WeiserLock.
