NAHB International Builders’ Show, LAS VEGAS – At the International Builders Show, Hampton Products International is introducing the patent-pending Brink’s Home Security Array™ digital deadbolt, a technologically advanced, cloud and app-enabled digital door lock that can be installed without adding separate hubs or accessories, making it one of the most consumer-friendly Smart Home lock products available. By including a highly efficient, proprietary power system, Array allows consumers to use their existing Wi-Fi routers to connect the deadbolt to the cloud, providing a “security simplified” solution for homeowners looking to upgrade from traditional deadbolts. Array digital deadbolts will be previewed during IBS at Hampton’s booth #S1324.
Brink’s Home Security Array delivers a number of new, best-of-breed approaches for connected users, beginning with real-world accessibility. To allow for turn-key operation, Hampton chose proven Wi-Fi wireless technology. Analysts predict Wi-Fi adoption in U.S. households with broadband will exceed 80 percent by 2018. To power the Wi-Fi connection, Array uses an innovative power management system that combines a proprietary battery PLUS an onboard photovoltaic panel that captures light energy from a variety of sources to sustain the lock’s functions. This unique advanced power management circuitry regulates the battery’s intake and output to provide multi-year useful battery life.
“When we began development of Array over two years ago, we started with the premise that a connected deadbolt shouldn’t be complex or inconvenient for homeowners to use. Our goal was to provide a highly secure, digital deadbolt homeowners could rely on without needing to purchase additional equipment or connect through a gateway hub. We selected Wi-Fi because of its ubiquity, and worked with development partners to build a power management solution into the Array deadbolts that won’t require frequent battery replacements or home rewiring,” said Jim Hartung, executive vice president, Hampton Products.
Array allows the owner or authorized users to enter the home three ways: via smartphone, discretely hidden touch pad, or a traditional metal key. Using cloud connectivity and point-to-point connections between the cloud, Array™ mobile app, and Array™ deadbolt, consumers can open their doors with a smartphone instead of using keys; provide access remotely to guests; check to confirm whether the door is closed and locked; and use the app to view door lock usage or manage user access.
The Array smartphone app will allow the user to operate the deadbolt with both iOS and Android devices. Array digital deadbolts will employ a highly secure cloud architecture and two-factor authentication to ensure users maintain full control over access to their home. All data transmitted between the deadbolt, app and cloud will be protected by state-of-the-art encryption protocols. Array digital deadbolts will also be compatible with Apple HomeKit, Works with Nest products, and various Smart Home platforms.
Array digital deadbolts feature durable construction, meet or exceed American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Grade 2 standards – the highest performance rating for residential door hardware – and are pick-resistant, bump-resistant and drill-resistant. Easy to install, Array™ deadbolts will be available in several finishes to match almost any décor, including satin nickel, Tuscan bronze and polished brass.
The Brink’s Home Security Array Digital Deadbolt will be available in late 2016. To sign up for product notifications and additional information please visit MyBrinksHome.com.

Brinks Home Security Push Pull Rotate door locks, the first door locks to open three ways. Introduced to construction professionals at the International Builders Show in 2014, Push Pull Rotate earned “Best in Show” and “Best of Indoor Living” awards from NAHB show organizers. It was selected as the Parade of Products People's Choice Award Winner at the 2014 PCBC show in San Francisco, and earned a Handy Innovation Award for top innovation of the year, from Handy Magazine and the Handyman Club of America.
Designed to improve the way people open doors, Push Pull Rotate locksets can be opened traditionally by turning or rotating them, and in two completely new ways: Simply pushing or pulling on the knob or lever releases the latch.
Push Pull Rotate door locks make opening doors easier whether your hands are full or free. A tug with a single finger, or a quick bump with an elbow or hip, can open interior or exterior doors more easily, and without setting down groceries, children, or mobile phones. Although Push Pull Rotate locks are easier to use, they still stay closed and locked when the user wants them to be, exactly as a “traditional” lock does. Also, Push Pull Rotate levers are ADA-compliant.
There are many styles and finishes to choose from to match any décor. In all, more than 100 combinations of keyed entry lock sets and handlesets for front doors, privacy locks for bedrooms and bathrooms, passage locks for laundry rooms, pantries, kid’s rooms and closets, and inactive knobs and levers for closets and French doors are available. Brinks Home Security Push Pull Rotate offers a complete line that will please anyone.
In addition to a wide range of architectural styling, the products meet rigorous ANSI Grade 2 testing standards. Featuring durable, all-metal construction, Push Pull Rotate products are built on a cylindrical chassis normally used in commercial applications so they are exceptionally durable and come with a lifetime warranty. They are easily installed with a Phillips screwdriver. The keyed products are pick-resistant, bump-resistant, drill-resistant, and the deadbolts are also equipped with an anti-pry shield and steel anti-drill plate to provide the highest level of security that consumers expect from Brink’s Home Security.
