Yale Locks & Hardware has introduced its first lock specifically designed to integrate into the digital home.
These new deadbolt and lever locks are the first products in the Yale Real Living portfolio of residential access control and home security solutions. Available with either a capacitive touchscreen or pushbutton keypad, Yale's new platform of intelligent locks were shown operating with within a Control4 demo at CEDIA EXPO this past September.
Via a Control4 2.0 user interface system the user can create personalized events or scenes triggered by the push of a button from anywhere in the home or remotely via the internet. The new locks support both Z-Wave and ZigBee, allowing them to integrate seamlessly into a wide range of home control and security systems.
Features of the new locks include voice-assisted programming in English, Spanish, and French; personalized access-control scenes for up to 250 users; and access to all user programmable settings via the Control4 user interface.
