Eagan, Minn. — National CE and custom integration distributor Capitol has locked in a distribution agreement with Schlage.
Under the pact, Capitol will carry Schlage’s keyless line of Connect electronic deadbolts, which boast rugged construction and advanced engineering.
Utilizing the Z-Wave wireless platform and an intuitive app, the locks can be controlled by end users via computer or mobile device, and can enhance the connected-home arsenals of CE dealers and custom installers.
“Schlage is truly a rare company in that it not only evolved to meet current needs but it has become a market leader by combining the best of traditional and groundbreaking technologies,” said Capitol president and CFO Curt Hayes. “There aren’t many companies with their breadth of experience that do such an exemplary job of catering to both builders and custom installation pros.”
Added Schlage connected home sales director Mike Knudson, “Capitol knows this market as well as any distributor in the business, and their level of custom support and education rivals our own. To me, it’s a perfect fit.”
