Schlage LiNK Introduces Support for Android Phone App

Schlage announced today that Android phone owners can now download the app for the Schlage LiNK home-management system via the Android Market. This app makes it possible for owners of Android phones to take advantage of the Schlage LiNK solution and control Z-Wave enabled locks, lights, thermostats and other devices, such as Schlage cameras, from their Android phone, in addition to any Internet-enabled computer. The addition of the Android platform – the fastest growing mobile phone platform in the United States – allows subscribers to access Schlage LiNK through the three largest mobile platforms, including Apple’s iPhone and Research in Motion’s BlackBerry.

“Having Android in the mix means owners of the three most popular phones will be able to receive text messages when the kids get home from school, monitor live camera feeds on their phones and even reduce heating bills by adjusting their home temperature from almost anywhere,” says Dwight Gibson, vice president and general manager, Connected Home Solutions for Residential Solutions.
