Yale Provides a Smart Lock Solution for Amazon Key
Yale Locks & Hardware has teamed up with Amazon on a new service exclusively for Prime members that is meant to improve the convenience of receiving deliveries. Amazon Key enables in-home delivery and secure home access for guests and service appointments.
To get started with Amazon Key, Prime members need to first purchase and install the Amazon Key In-Home Kit, which consists of a choice of compatible smart locks, including the Yale Assure Lock Touchscreen (YRD226-AZ) and the Amazon Cloud Cam, an intelligent indoor security camera. Using the Amazon Key app, members can also grant secure access for in-home Amazon deliveries, receive notifications when deliveries are made, watch the delivery happening live or review a video of the delivery after it is complete.
“We’re thrilled to be a part of this new innovation from Amazon,” said Jason Williams, president, ASSA ABLOY U.S. Residential Group, which includes Yale Residential. “Yale’s years of expertise in security and smart lock technology and the new Amazon Key service will give Prime members peace of mind and provide a new level of convenience.”
The Yale Assure Lock Touchscreen, a keyed electronic deadbolt, provides multiple options for locking and unlocking. In addition to operating via the Amazon Key app, the deadbolt can be unlocked by entering a PIN code via the backlit touchscreen keypad or with one of the included physical keys.
The Yale Assure Lock features a durable capacitive touchscreen with backlit numbers that won’t fade with use; a weather-resistant gasket that seals out moisture to protect both the lock and the door; a quiet motor with tapered deadbolt that accommodates for misaligned doors; easy set up with voice-guided instructions in three languages; and a lifetime limited warranty on finish and mechanical components; one-year on electronics.
The Amazon Key In-Home Kit is available for pre-order and begins shipping on November 8, 2017.
