Kevo for Android
Kevo supports iPhone 4S and later models. It also works with iPad mini, iPad Air, iPad2 and later.
With the release of Android Lollipop, Kevo supports devices with Android Lollipop compatibility that fully support Bluetooth Smart, including HTC One M9, Nexus 6, Samsung Galaxy S5 / S6, and Samsung Galaxy Note 4 / Note 4 Edge. If your device is not listed as currently compatible, join our Alpha group and we will tell you when your device becomes supported.
The release of Android Lollipop has equipped many new Android devices with the new operating system including full support for Bluetooth Smart, both central and peripheral roles. As of November 7th, Kwikset Kevo powered by UniKey affords Touch-to-Open® functionality through an app for Android Lollipop users with Bluetooth Smart and Peripheral role support.
Only devices operating Android Lollipop with full Bluetooth support will be able to access Kevo for Android.
To find out why Kevo requires Bluetooth Smart Peripheral role find out here.
Kwikset and UniKey chose Bluetooth Smart over NFC to be able to provide Kevo users with a hands free, touch-to-open experience, where the smart phone stays in a pocket or purse.
Android Lollipop is rolling out to different devices through different carriers. We are monitoring announcements from carriers but at this time only the Nexus 6, the Nexus 9, and the Samsung Galaxy S5 devices will be compatible with Android Lollipop with full Bluetooth Smart and therefore compatible with the Kevo Android app.
Go right ahead and join our Alpha group. We will notify you when the Kevo App for your registered Android device becomes available.
