“At TownSteel, we are looking forward to our new Interconnected Partnership with Latch. Like Latch, our mission is to never stop thinking of innovative ways to elevate the industry with the most advanced security lock solutions coming to front doors around the world,” said Kevin Hamilton, President of TownSteel. “We are thrilled to be able to expand our product portfolio to offer new LatchOS-enabled locks, delivering an exceptional connected experience for our customers.”
Through this partnership, TownSteel and Latch will be able to introduce a revolutionary product on a national scale.

Combining this with the power of LatchOS, users are able to control door access using their smartphone or Apple Watch, with a door code, or using physical credentials like a keycard for unparalleled flexibility. This combination of unique hardware and software pairs together and creates a revolutionary lock that defies industry standards.
