How many times have you come home at the end of a long day laden with bags and shopping, and then fumbled with your keys to open the front door? A new technology is set to change this daily hassle by automatically unlocking your door as you approach – almost as if you have your own personal and very efficient but invisible doorman.
The new Smart Locks Range powered by the Yale Access App uses your phone’s sophisticated GPS and geofencing capabilities to shift between Home and Away modes without you having to communicate or log your location. The Smart Lock is intelligent enough to recognise you when you’re within five metres of your home and employs the Auto-Unlock function to unlock the front door. The Smart Lock will automatically switch into Away mode when you’re more than 200 metres away from the property. Essentially, your phone is now your door key.
By setting the Smart Lock to Auto-Lock immediately, 30 seconds or 30 minutes after you leave, you’ll never again have to worry about whether you forgot to lock the front door behind you. When paired with a Yale Connect Bridge, you’ll be able to lock and unlock your door remotely and check the lock status with Yale’s DoorSense technology, regardless of your location.
Apart from delivering convenience and simplicity, this ground-breaking technology radically enhances home security. You no longer have to get multiple keys cut (or spare keys hidden in the garden) for various family members and anyone else requiring access to your home; the Smart Lock’s ‘virtual keys’ allow you to grant temporary or long-term access to anyone by following the simple steps on the intuitive Yale Access App. In a country where high-density urban living is fast becoming the norm, this level of security is often essential for peace of mind.
In the event your phone runs out of power or you don’t have it on you, Yale Smart Lock has a range of options that will allow you alternative access including the wireless Yale Smart Keypad and convenient Yale Contactless key tags.
Yale’s Smart Lock is an innovation that applies the on-trend smart technology to make things easier for you in your busy life. With Yale Connect Bridge added, it conveniently works with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and Samsung SmartThings, allowing you to use voice activation in locking, unlocking or checking the lock status of your door for a completely streamlined experience.
Featuring a sleek design, the Smart Lock is fast being recognised as a must-have entrance lock for any new build or renovation.
