I have been on the lookout for any reasonable answer to automating the security of my back sliding door. Until recently, I was about to pull the plug on a Mimolite and Mag lock, and suck it up. I wasn’t thrilled about having to cut/drill into a several thousand dollar door.
However, it looks like a product is out there that is testing the market. PadioLok is coming out with a touchpad sliding door lock, and in September, won a Z-Wave alliance competition. I inquired about what their future HA plans might be and received a response from a gentleman named Bruce asking:
Sorry, I can’t give dates wrt Z-wave. No promises it will be Z-wave either. There are may options. It is one we are evaluating and looks very promising.
We need to also judge the size of the Z-wave/wireless market.
It would be helpful if you could share why you want want Z-wave/wireless capatility.
How would you want to use it?
At any rate, for anyone else that is interested, it might be worth our while to submit a Contact Us link and help them size the market
