BERLIN, Conn., July 25, 2017 – Yale Locks & Hardware brings a new slim, contemporary design aesthetic to its Assure Lock® family of deadbolts with the launch today of the new Yale Assure Lock SL electronic deadbolt, the slimmest smart lock currently available. The new lock is a touchscreen, key free design that can be purchased as a standalone keypad lock or with a Yale Network Module for integration into home automation or alarm systems, including Samsung SmartThings, Wink, and Iris, among many others. What’s more, the standalone version can be upgraded with a Yale Network Module after purchase. The Assure Lock SL has a smaller footprint and slimmer profile than other electronic locks, and features a black touchscreen set in a sleek and slender metal bezel. It’s available in three finishes – satin nickel, oil rubbed bronze and polished brass. The deadbolt’s clean, modern look doesn’t sacrifice quality or functionality. It features weather-tight construction, a bright capacitive touchscreen that wakes with a touch, and the keyless design enhances security since there’s no cylinder to pick or bump. When used as a standalone deadbolt, the Assure Lock SL is unlocked by entering a PIN code using the touchscreen. It can hold up to 25 codes, or 250 with a network module, that can be changed or deleted at any time. The proprietary modular design of the Assure Lock SL makes it easy to enroll the lock in a smart home system with the addition of a Z-Wave®, ZigBee® or HomeKit® (coming soon) network module, available on Yale2You.com. Z-Wave or ZigBee versions of the Assure Lock SL are compatible with Amazon Alexa when used in conjunction with a Samsung SmartThings Hub and app or Wink Hub and app (Z-Wave only).
