NEW HAVEN, CONN, May 22, 2015 – Yale Locks & Hardware today announced that its key free digital deadbolts received a 2015 IoT Evolution Product of the Year Award, a program that honors the best in Internet of Things technology. The award, presented by the editors of IoT Evolution magazine, went to the Yale Real Living™ Key Free Push Button B1L and Key Free Touchscreen T1L Deadbolts, the only locks among the 33 winners.
The Yale Real Living B1L and T1L deadbolts are Z-Wave® key free deadbolts that integrate easily into a Z-Wave home security or home automation system thanks to the locks’ one-button Z-Wave enrollment. Smart home functionality varies from system to system, but possibilities include lock and unlock doors from a smartphone, tablet or PC from virtually anywhere in the world; schedule users or create customized entry scenes for family members, neighbors and service providers; and even automatically receive an alert when a child has arrived home from school.
“Yale is honored to have been recognized by IoT Evolution magazine for our innovative key free locks that make it easier than ever for consumers to enjoy the enhanced security and convenience of door locks that integrate into a smart home system,” said Jason Williams, General Manager, Yale Residential.
The winners of the 2015 IoT Evolution Product of the Year Awards will be published in the second quarter edition of IoT Evolution magazine.
