Alfred locks are the apex of where beautiful design meets ultimate functionality, convenience and safety.  

The DB1 Series is our latest deadbolt which continues this focus but brings a slightly different style and approach, without sacrificing any of the key features and sleek finished product.

Our entry-level smart home touchscreen motorized deadbolt lock brings the Alfred design aesthetic to a more streamlined lock, allowing you to select the options you need. Featuring a touchscreen with no moving parts or buttons for a smooth, clean surface. 

Alfred is connected

All DB1 models include Bluetooth connectivity for One-Touch access, allowing you to simply touch the unit when your phone is nearby to open the lock. Featuring Z-wave and/or key override, depending on the model. 

  • Bluetooth operation standard on all DB1 locks
  • Assign up to 20 unique PIN codes
  • Status indicator lights
  • DB1 featuring keypad touchscreen, unique PIN codes and Bluetooth operation.
  • DB1-A featuring key override
  • DB1-B featuring key override and Z-wave (North American Freq. Only)
  • DB1-C featuring Z-wave (North American Freq. Only)

Now with Alfred, and the mobile app, you can be ready for anyone: guests, tenants, family members, tradespeople - even at a moment’s notice. 


He’s always standing by. 

See Demo Videos Below 


Send, receive and manage secure digital bluetooth keys and eliminate the need for Pin or Key operation all together if you like. Or opt for the DB1 with Zwave Plus built in to allow connectivity to most third party smart hubs/apps (Smart things/Wink/etc.).  

Add the Alfred Connect Wifi Bridge to allow all the amazing Alfred Home app features, but remotely from virtually anywhere in the world (an internet connection is all that is required... cell, wifi, etc.). Alfred Connect also Works with Alexa for direct voice control (Google Assistant coming soon)! 

 Alfred Locks are temperature resistant and waterproof  (-20F to +120F / -30C to +50C). Protecting your home in any condition mother natural throws at it. 

 Alfred easily fits almost any standard door. Take a look at the video for full instructions.

Who is Alfred?  

For over 30 years our team has been manufacturing commercial and industrial grade door hardware globally and watched the "connected" or "smart" lock develop and grow into a major segment of the lock industry. We were constantly reminded, however, that it seemed no one was addressing one of the major concerns of consumers (and would-be consumers); and that was design approach and aesthetic. 

Over the past few years the technologies have really come to even level across most locks, and they function well and in very similar ways, however there seemed to be two types emerging stylistically: ones that looked like old traditional locks with a keypad strapped on, and ones that looked like a technology company was learning how to build a door lock. Despite all of the attempts, in our opinion, visually these products were either polarizing or very bland and boring. We aimed to remedy that with Alfred.  

All Alfred products are and will continue to be heavily design focused, so that people can get excited about more that just neat features. It should be a beautiful design feature of your door, while also not foregoing on all the smart tech you may want to enjoy. 

Starting in January 2018, we took our notes and our partners and finalized all of the details, manufacturing and testing. January 2019 we officially launched the Alfred DB2 at CES and showcased some of our future product plans. The show was incredible success and the team has been blisteringly busy ever since. The DB1 is the next step and we are excited to share it with the world.
