Yale Showcases Deadbolt and New Lever Locks Designed For Digital Home Integration


LAS VEGAS, NV, March 28, 2012 - Following the successful debut of the Yale Real Living™ deadbolt in 2011, Yale has announced the addition of the Yale Real Living lever lock, expanding its line of locks specifically designed to integrate seamlessly into the digital home.

The lever versions of these locks provide consumers and security dealers with another attractive design option in the Yale Real Living portfolio of home control and security solutions. Like the deadbolt locks, the lever locks are available in both durable acrylic touchscreen or simple, elegant, tamper-resistant keypad. Unlike other intelligent locks available on the market, the Yale Real Living locks, which support both Z-Wave® and ZigBee®, were designed for interior security applications such as a home office or storage closet.

"Other so-called 'intelligent locks' are simply reworked versions of their company's existing product," said Jason Williams, General Manager of Yale Residential. "Our locks were designed from the ground up specifically to interface with today's home control systems. As a result, they will provide more seamless operation and a wider degree of functionality than our competitors' offerings."

Regardless of the security system employed, users will have access to a high degree of functionality, including the ability to lock and unlock doors from web-enabled devices or create customized entry scenes for family members, neighbors and guests. Yale locks have a modular design allowing them to integrate seamlessly into a wide range of security and home control systems, including Alarm.com's emPower™, 2Gig, Honeywell, Control4, and the Vera Z-Wave® home control system by Mi Casa Verde, among others.

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 select user interfaces. The new intelligent locks offer an elegant, next-generation home control solution for entryways and protected interior doors to make everyday living easier and safer.

The locks will be available from a number of sources, including:
