Yale Real Living NFC Deadbolt Satin Nickel_angle rightLAS VEGAS, January 5, 2015 – Yale Locks & Hardware offers homeowners a new level of convenience and security with the introduction today of the first NFC residential door lock designed for the U.S. market, operated with the tap of a smartphone app.

The new Yale Real Living™ NFC Deadbolt replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for NFC-equipped Android mobile devices. NFC, or near-field communications, is a short-range wireless technology that allows devices to share data.

The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code, which makes the new deadbolt the only key free digital lock that provides two electronic options for unlocking.

For enhanced security, the lock and app are powered by award-winning Seos® technology, a multi-platform ecosystem for issuing, delivering and revoking digital keys across a broad range of smart devices. Seos was developed by Yale parent company ASSA ABLOY and is currently used in hotels, universities, hospitals, and all types of office and commercial buildings.

“Our NFC lock and Digital Keys app deliver a new level of security, convenience and versatility to homeowners, and most importantly, keeps it simple – all that’s needed is the lock and a phone to manage access to your home,” said Jason Williams, General Manager, Yale Residential. “And Seos reassures homeowners that their homes are secured by robust, proven technology.”

The Yale Real Living Digital Keys app displays a patent-pending digital key ring that’s swiped to easily scan keys. Set colors and upload photos to match keys and locks with people and lock locations. Share or revoke keys any time, manage when each user can access the lock, and receive notifications when a key is accepted or used. For convenience, the same digital key can be used to access multiple locks on one or more properties, and there’s no limit on the number of digital key users.

For those instances when the phone isn’t handy, the deadbolt can be unlocked by entering an entry code into the keypad. It can hold up to 12 codes. The touchscreen, the same capacitive touchscreen in use for years on millions of Yale digital locks, wakes with a touch, and is weather-tight and virtually indestructible. And as a true key free lock, there’s no cylinder to pick or bump.

Should the lock batteries drain, the lock can be powered by simply touching a nine-volt battery to the terminals at the bottom of the lock.

The new Yale Real Living NFC Deadbolt will be available in February at a suggested retail price of $224.99. The Yale Digital Keys app comes with five free digital keys. Additional digital keys can be purchased for $1.99 each on Google Play.

Yale Real Living Key Free Push Button Deadbolt B1L_groupATLANTA, September 29, 2014 – Underscoring its position as a leading innovator in residential locks, Yale Locks & Hardware is at ASIS 2014 demonstrating its next generation of Z-Wave® key free cylinderless deadbolts that feature a sleek new look, easier installation, one button Z-Wave enrollment, and superior value.

The new Yale Real Living™ Key Free Push Button B1L and Key Free Touchscreen T1L Deadbolts follow Yale’s introduction last year of the industry’s first cylinderless deadbolts, which offer integrators simplified installation and homeowners superior security. For integrators, installation is a much smoother process without a cylinder since no keying is required. For homeowners, eliminating the keyway provides a more secure product by making the lock pick and bump proof.

“Since we introduced our first key free products we’ve seen strong consumer demand for these locks,” said Jason Williams, General Manager, Yale Residential. “Consumers recognize the enhanced security that comes with the absence of a cylinder, and because of that strong acceptance we’ve expanded our line with these new, sleeker cylinderless models priced to appeal to an even broader market.”

To enhance curb appeal, the new deadbolts offer a clean, modern appearance, with a sleek new design that is the smallest residential keypad for a Z-Wave lock. The push button version comes with a black push button keypad that illuminates when touched and is both easy to use and attractive. The touchscreen model features a durable black acrylic capacitive touchscreen that wakes with a touch. Universal code entry and settings symbols are featured for ease-of-use.

Integrating the new locks into a Z-Wave home security or home automation system is quicker and simpler than ever. The new Yale B1L and T1L locks can be enrolled prior to connecting the lock’s single wire by simply bringing the interior half of the lock to within pairing distance of the control panel and pressing the new one-touch enrollment button.

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.

Like all Yale Real Living locks, the new B1L and T1L offer enhanced security by requiring the user to confirm the entered code before the lock opens. Compared to locks that open the instant the correct code is entered, this additional step provides extra protection against code guessers and makes more code combinations available.

The Key Free B1L and T1L boast the quality cues of Yale’s current lock line, including fully gasketed installation, ANSI/ BHMA grade 2 certification, motorized tapered deadbolts, and intuitive phone layout keypads. For additional homeowner peace of mind, ample warning is provided before the locks’ batteries lose power, and if connected to a home control system the system may generate “low battery” email or text alerts. Should the batteries drain, terminals on the bottom exterior of the lock accept a nine-volt battery, which provides enough power to enter the code and gain access.

The Z-Wave key free deadbolts integrate into a wide range of security and home control systems, including Alarm.com’s emPower™, which supports 2GIG, Interlogix and Qolsys systems; Honeywell’s Total Connect; DSC; Revolv and the Vera Z-Wave home control system by Mi Casa Verde, among others. The locks are available from leading industry wholesalers and online retailers. Both the B1L and T1L Yale Real Living digital door locks are available now.

homesafe-yale-logo copyNEW HAVEN, CT, September 2, 2014 – As children head back to school, Yale Locks & Hardware has partnered with home security pioneer Protect America on a campaign designed to help parents safeguard children who are home alone after school. The HomeSafe campaign provides parents with information and recommendations for keeping their “latchkey” children safe.

The HomeSafe initiative includes a downloadable brochure with a checklist and emergency contact form to be filled out by parents and placed on the refrigerator or other easily seen location. There’s also a HomeSafe Fact Sheet that highlights the importance of safety at home and provides tips for children who spend time home alone.

Among the HomeSafe recommendations is for parents and children to create an emergency plan that includes who to call in an emergency and where to go during a crisis. Parents are also advised to discuss possibly dangerous situations, such as a stranger coming to the door, and to discuss what around the house is strictly off limits. These would include gas stoves, knives, matches, swimming pools and medication.

“We’ll always worry about our children, but a frank and open discussion about rules and a clear plan of action will help put parents’ minds at ease and make children feel more comfortable when they’re home alone,” said Yale Residential General Manager Jason Williams.

“It would be a perfect world if we could always keep an eye on our children,” said Protect America President and Chief Operating Officer Scott Fleming. “Obviously, parents can’t be everywhere, so having a simple plan is truly invaluable. With that in mind, we hope the HomeSafe campaign will provide families with the information they need to have those important discussions.”

Eliminating the cylinder also provides a clean appearance, and to enhance curb appeal the new keyless locks feature a sleek new design that is the smallest residential keypad for a Z-Wave lock.
