SUGARCREEK, Ohio, December 13, 2017 – ProVia offers the Nexia smart home system for controlling Schlage® hardware used on the company’s entry doors. Nexia allows for the keyless locks to be remotely monitored, locked or included in home automations from anywhere with its smartphone app or web portal. This leading smart home system, powered by secure Z-Wave and Wi-Fi technology, provides unique benefits for homeowners and dealers.

Smartphone Control is Growing in Popularity
Simplifying life with technology is becoming increasingly popular with homeowners, especially with millennials and those who like to manage their lifestyle via smartphone. Nexia makes the smart home mainstream. No longer does a connected home mean installing an expensive system or one with a lengthy contract and long-term commitment. Nexia is an affordable, wireless option, and creates opportunities for dealers to reach the mainstream market.

A Simple System
Getting started with Nexia begins with a Starter Kit that includes the Bridge – the brains of the system – and a light module to control any plug-in device. A monthly subscription fee gives users control over their smart home system, remote access from the app or web to their smart devices, 7 day-a-week technical support and space for video storage. ProVia’s dealers have installers who will take care of setup onsite while the door is being installed.

Peace of Mind
Nexia users enjoy an added peace of mind, knowing that no matter where they may be, they can monitor their door, give access to family and friends (or a pet walker), and be alerted when someone unlocks their home. Nexia users can expand their systems, choosing from hundreds of devices from other top manufacturers, including Amazon, General Electric, First Alert, Rachio, GoControl, Fibaro, Trane, and American Standard Heating and Air Conditioning, to create a truly smart home that adjusts to busy lives.
