All models are programmed using the Yale Access app and work out of the box with Bluetooth and Apple HomeKit technology. Wi-Fi Smart Modules are also available in-box with the locks or sold separately, and no longer require a Wi-Fi Connect Bridge, enabling even simpler set up. Additionally, Z-Wave Smart Modules will be available later this year to serve Z-Wave customers.
Like previous Yale smart locks, Assure Lock 2 can be managed in multiple ways. Users can lock and unlock using the keypad, and can provide unlimited unique entry codes to guests, service providers or other visitors. They can use the Yale Access app on a smartphone or Apple Watch,.
Finally, customers can use Auto-Unlock, a Bluetooth-powered feature which unlocks the door upon approach and eliminates the scramble of finding keys; and Auto-Lock with DoorSense®, Yale’s technology that signals if the door is open or closed, so the door will lock once closed.
