We have covered the Schlage LiNK here at CrackBerry before back when CES was under way - in case you need a refresher on what it does the video above gives many examples of the great uses for it. But it doesn't stop there... be sure to check out all the uses at the Schlage LiNK product tour site. This is one tool which I would absolutely LOVE to have in my house, not just for the safety aspects but the convenience aspects as well.

Now, with Schlage hitting the mobile world bigtime with their security offerings they also want to give back a little and are having an awesome contest where you can win not only a brand new BlackBerry Storm, but also a Schlage LiNK system for your home. Freaking sweet! A new security system for your house and a new BlackBerry Storm?? Ya really cannot go wrong there!

I saw this product on their site. Looked really cool, but also very pricey for what it does. Maybe useful if and when I have kids.

timsmish

Well this sucks Canadians cant enter the contest....I was so hoping for a chance to win :-(

vinndy

I'd rather have the new KidSat - a GPS enabled chip implanted under the skin of my child.

Then I'll ALWAYS know where my kid is!

Interesting about the Schlage LiNK. I was baffled when I first glanced at the name of the article because I always knew Schlage as a security hardware manufacturer. Turns out I was correct in this case. Great idea...a bit surprising now that I think about it that someone hadn't thought of it before.

Freaking sweet! <--that says it all!!

This looks cool. If I win, it would be awesome. Otherwise it looks cool.

That clip is racist. Why does it have to be the white people without security?

CoolBB

i'd consider it as well after a few kids lol.

AnastasiasTribe

My kids would love it even more...haha/

That is one of those things tons of people are kicking themselves for, and saying "why didn't I think of that"?
That is tremendous!

WOW!!!!!!!!!! WHAT A AWSOME WAY TO CELEBRATE YOUR BIRTHDAY CRACKBERRY.. BEST BLACKBERRY SITE IN THE WORLD... THANKS FOR EVERYTHING

CGSCOT

hee hee cheesetastic ;) whats kids that young doing home alone anyway + couldn't the kids just type the code in, open the door & then just shut it & go off somewhere, just because you get a text saying the door has been opened doesn't mean they are at home. Can see some merits behind it (if someone is trying to break in) but also some flaws, also its a bit Orwellian in some aspects.

I am a fairly new bb user and love bb's to death they are the best phones out there for the true techy! About a year and half ago I got robbed after losing my job and lost my laptop and ps3 were stolen. I have had things replaced and still live in the same house but still have the feeling of insecurity. I can leave this house due to the lovely economy and have a baby on the way april 29th and yes it will get a baby berry! Security would be great and a bb storm but mainly security so if u can choose me, good luck to all!

Chef_Hutch

This is so innovative! Wow! I can really use this!

rawbiznes

Since your phone has access to unlock doors, does this mean whoever has your phone can unlock your doors.

TSullivan

Rawbiznes--Actually there is a 4 digit pin you have to put in to be able to get the screen to open your door. So if you lose your phone someone would have to know your pin number.

metalmancpa

Pretty cool product - would love to win it.

Since I live in the war zone this would be an awsome prize to win.

Daisy Dee

Thanks

entreprise

is any body else having trouble w/the link to the contest site??

kasperapd

I just tried the link and it worked for me. Just point your browser to: myschlagelink.com

NolesBL

Ok ill try the storm again. I hope the corners have improved.

Glorishan

Considering my house was just busted into (only got away with my Garmin c550), security is a must!

hdangle

This looks like the best thing since sliced bread!

Dave25

Wow! Awesome giveaway. It'll be nice to protect my home with their system.

Happy birthday CB!

cafe_civet

It's one of those ideas that makes so much sense that you wonder why no one else is doing it.

ToeTaggerH

anyway, this thing looks cool!

mina3050

the product sounds awesome....

NS Newfie

This is a wonderful product. I would have such peace of mine with this as I live on a very busy street and my front door is on the sidewalk. Would be awesome to win!

Sylverlady

And thanks for another NICE contest!

DS needs a new phone, he's been looking mine
over :) Winning this one would be awesome!

We could use the security system for our doors.
We'd know when our grown kids are coming or
going.

Thanks Kevin!

peterodd4161

nice security addition to my phone

me_of_course

This thing is awesome! I don't have kids but I do have pets and I worry about them if something happens to the house, they can't call for help. This system is great when alone, out for the evening and on vacation! I'm definitely looking into this.

Smurfy71

This is a sweet system, and would love to win one. Looks like those of us in Canada can't enter. :-( That sucks!

brodmeister

I LOVE CRACKBERRY!!!!!
:)

freshgeardude

CB ftw! love these contests

BBSchase373

Very sweet. Piiiiiick ME

mohebenterprises

I'm a custom builder and this would be real nice to put on my model home. Happy birthday CrackBerry!

Ti-Mike

if two peolpe enter at the same time do they have to login one after the other......like, close the door and let access code hold #2 outside, because if 2 walk thru the door with one code.......well where is the control......if you have 2 kids, one would like to stay out longer, Kid one enters both codes......

If you need to control your kids, let them call you from the land line at home........but what about some trust.....

HofstraJet

From reading the reviews on the product, the product does not physically lock or unlock the door - it simply allows a person to MANUALLY lock or unlock the door. If you forgot to lock the door, you can't send a message to lock it for you. Also, there is a $13 monthly subscription required to use the device. No web interface to log onto the device from your home network - it is a dumb box that only communicates with Schlage's web server. Caveat emptor.

xrowen

Great idea...and to win a free lock...Well even better!!

mrumsey

This sounds very cool! I want one!

markstone64

As a volunteer fireman, I could use this lock for not only its ease, but speed of use. I am also a Blackberry addict, and anytime another use for my Blackberry is found, I gotta have it. Thanks Crackberry for the great website and content you deliver.

alfiend

What a great idea! Can think of great uses for this.

kevenahus

The Schlage lock system is great! You have to love the technology! I want one!
