About Kwikset

Kwikset is a leading manufacturer of smart locks and other security products. Founded in 1946, the company is based in Lake Forest, California and has over 70 years of experience in the industry. Kwikset's mission is to provide innovative security solutions that protect people and their homes.

Kwikset was founded by Karl Rhinehart, a locksmith and engineer who was determined to create a better, more secure lock. Rhinehart was inspired to create Kwikset after witnessing the many break-ins and burglaries that were taking place in his community. He believed that with the right technology, it was possible to create a lock that was both secure and convenient to use.

Kwikset began as a small, family-owned business, but quickly grew in popularity thanks to the high quality of its products. The company was one of the first to introduce the concept of interchangeable cores, which allowed users to easily change the lock on their doors without having to replace the entire lock. This innovation made Kwikset a leader in the industry and helped the company to become known for its durability and reliability.

In the decades that followed, Kwikset continued to innovate and expand its product line. The company introduced a number of new technologies, including keyless entry systems and smart locks that could be controlled using a smartphone or other smart device. Kwikset's smart locks are particularly popular among consumers who want to be able to control their locks remotely and receive notifications when someone enters or exits their home.

Today, Kwikset is a leading manufacturer of smart locks and other security products. The company's products are sold in more than 60 countries around the world and are used by millions of people to protect their homes and businesses. Kwikset is dedicated to providing innovative security solutions that help people to feel safe and secure in their homes.
