DIVISION OF SPECTRUM BRANDS, DEBUTS HOLLYWOOD HILLS BY ERINN V.; STUNNING NEW COLLECTION DEVELOPED IN COLLABORATION WITH CELEBRITY DESIGNER ERINN VALENCICH
New Hollywood Hills Evolved and Baldwin Enhanced smart lock offerings on Display at CES
LAS VEGAS—Jan. 8, 2018— Baldwin® Hardware, a leading brand of the Hardware & Home Improvement (HHI) division of Spectrum Brands, Inc. (NYSE:SPB), today officially launched its newest collection, Hollywood Hills by Erinn V., developed in collaboration with Celebrity Designer Erinn Valencich. CES visitors will be the first to experience the stunning new collection in its smart lock trim, which will be on display in booth #41018. Called Hollywood Hills Evolved, customers will delight in this gorgeous smart lock that stuns on the front door and integrates seamlessly into the smart home.
“Hollywood Hills by Erinn V. strikes the perfect balance between chic, traditional elegance and clean modernism,” said PJ Rosch, senior brand manager for Baldwin Hardware. “Our team worked tirelessly with Erinn to create a striking collection that easily makes a statement without being overly fussy,”
Working in concert with Baldwin’s industrial design team, Valencich developed a collection that is uniquely Baldwin, with unmatched quality and craftsmanship and also undeniably “Erinn V” with a California-cool vibe. Valencich loves clean, industrial lines and drew inspiration for Hollywood Hills from the linear, stacked geometry found in nautical pieces.
With a tall 24-inch back plate, Hollywood Hills creates immediate interest as a statement piece. The collection has a clean, contemporary look that works well in both traditional and modern applications. It boasts two tubular handlesets; two mortise entrance sets, three knobs, three rosettes, one deadbolt and a variety of cabinet and appliance pulls, and one new cabinet knob. It is available in 18 finishes. Erinn’s personal favorites are polished chrome (260) and vintage brass (033).
“CES provides the perfect backdrop to showcase the Evolved version of Hollywood Hills,” added Rosch. “It represents the best of electronic solutions, and we believe Hollywood Hills Evolved is just that: A gorgeous electronic lock that is as beautiful as it is smart.”

Baldwin Enhanced for Reserve
Baldwin also unveiled Enhanced, another new collection of smart locks blending timeless Baldwin craftsmanship with advanced technology. It will be offered through the Baldwin Reserve portfolio. With Kevo technology, Baldwin Enhanced allows users to control who enters and leaves the home through a simple smartphone app.
Customers with an existing Baldwin Reserve handleset can easily upgrade to the Enhanced version through an easy-to-install conversion kit, which replaces the internal components and instantly gains access to the home through a smartphone. The exterior door remains unchanged and traditional keys continue to work as needed. Similar to Evolved, Baldwin Enhanced connects through advanced bridge technology allowing users to easily lock and unlock doors from anywhere in the world. It will be available in 15 styles and eight finishes in May.
