Schlage Connect vs. Sense — What’s Different?

Schlage Sense

Voice Control – In terms of voice control it’s quite straightforward, you can only use Alexa’s voice commands with Schlage Connect, whereas Sense is only compatible with HomeKit, therefore you’ll use Siri as your voice assistant.

Technology – When it comes to the technology used, Schlage Sense integrates with Bluetooth, whereas the Connect model is compatible with Z-Wave, which could potentially offer more flexible compatibility with other Z-Wave products in the future.

Remote Control – While both of these smart locks come with remote control capabilities, there are however a few differences.

The Schlage Sense locks include two ways of remote control, by pairing it with an Apple TV, or any other Homekit device, or by pairing it with a Schlage Sense Wi-Fi Adapter.

And the Schlage Connect utilizes Z-wave technology, which requires you to have a hub such as Wink or SmartThings.
