Yale Announces 1st Quarter Launch For New Nest x Yale Lock

Pre-orders in February for the newly named smart deadbolt that integrates with Nest Secure and provides access from anywhere, anytime.

ORLANDO, January 8, 2018 – Yale Locks & Hardware today announced the launch of its lock designed and built in collaboration with Nest, the Nest x Yale Lock, the first Works with Nest product that is controlled using the Nest app. 

The new Nest x Yale Lock is a key free touchscreen deadbolt that provides homeowners with extraordinary control and convenience. Lock and unlock doors from anywhere, create passcodes to manage access for family members and guests, and revoke access at any time – all from the Nest app. Homeowners can create passcodes and schedules for guests, set the Nest x Yale Lock to automatically lock when they are away from home, and see a history of who has entered, and when. 

“Yale and Nest collaborated closely to develop a lock that brings a new level of security, convenience, and insight to the front door,” said Jason Williams, president, ASSA ABLOY U.S. Residential Group, which includes Yale Residential. “With this product we are bringing to market a lock that takes full advantage of Nest’s leading ecosystem and extends its capabilities with useful product integrations.” 

The lock’s keyless design means that homeowners never need to worry about keys getting lost, copied or stolen, or loaning keys to neighbors or others who need temporary access. The deadbolt is easily unlocked by entering a passcode and it can hold up to 250 codes that can be changed at any time. Passcode access can be restricted to certain days and times, ideal for scheduling cleaning services, dog walkers, or anybody who requires limited access. 

When integrated with Nest Secure, the Nest x Yale Lock can disarm Nest’s alarm system. And homeowners with both a Nest Hello video doorbell and a Nest x Yale lock can see who’s at the door and then remotely unlock it to let them in. 

The Nest x Yale lock features a sleek, contemporary and low profile design, with a clean, simple and intuitive user interface. It replaces an existing deadbolt, so installation is easy, requiring just a screwdriver in most cases. Set up is made simple by the use of easy-to-follow voice prompts.

The lock’s hardware and software security are state-of-the-art. Reinforced hardware on the outside protects the lock from physical assault, and the lack of a keyhole means that there’s no cylinder to pick or bump. Remote access is secured using multiple layers of bank-level encryption technology in combination with Nest’s Weave technology. 

Should power fail, Wi-Fi go down, or phones become unavailable or dead, Nest x Yale Lock can be opened using the touchscreen. And Nest’s Weave technology allows the Nest x Yale Lock to communicate with other Nest products even if the Internet connection is lost. Lock owners receive low battery alerts as power decreases, but should the lock batteries drain, the deadbolt can be powered by simply touching a nine-volt battery to the terminals at the bottom of the lock. 

The Nest x Yale lock will be available for pre-order in February with delivery in March.
