What are smart locks, and why do you need them?

Smart locks are devices with built-in Wi-Fi or Bluetooth that allow you to lock and unlock doors without a traditional key. Instead, you can use your smartphone, or in some cases, your voice, to access your door.

The cool thing about smart locks is that they add another layer of security to your home. Many smart locks come with features like auto-lock settings and entry codes to enhance your house's security experience. Smart locks even allow remote access, so you can let a guest in while you're out by unlocking the door remotely.

As the brand that first invented the lock 181 years ago, Yale continues to innovate with smart locks and safes to keep you and your family safe <3

Almost two centuries ago, Yale became the first company to introduce the lock that has kept us and our families safe all these years. Now, Yale is taking it one step further with Smart Locks!

Feeling safe and secure in your own home is priceless, which is why Yale wants to give you protection for your home, and peace for your mind when it comes to home security. From smart locks that are fingerprint-activated to RFID Card digital door locks, Yale provides you with awesome options to safe-proof your house. 

What's cool is that you can access all your smart home devices using the Yale Access mobile app that comes with an encrypted cloud for maximum security
