Yale Expands Smart Lock Options for Amazon Key

Yale now offers a total of three model options for the Amazon Key Home Kit – touchscreen and pushbutton deadbolts with a key override, and a slim, key free model.

BERLIN, Conn., April 5, 2018Yale Locks & Hardware today announced an expanded selection of smart locks for the Amazon Key Home Kit, which provides homeowners with keyless entry, allows them to lock and unlock their door from anywhere, and provides Amazon Prime members in select locations the ability to receive in-home deliveries. 

Yale now offers a total of three model options for the Amazon Key Home Kit – touchscreen and pushbutton deadbolts with a key override, and a slim, key free model. New to the Amazon Key Home Kit is the Yale Assure Lock Pushbutton Deadbolt (YRD216) with key override, and the slim, key free Yale Assure Lock SL (YRD256), the slimmest electronic deadbolt on the market with an edge-to-edge touchscreen keypad. These join the Yale Assure Lock Touchscreen (YRD226-AZ), a touchscreen deadbolt with a key override, available since Amazon Key was announced in October 2017. 

Amazon Key allows homeowners to easily manage and monitor their door from anywhere using the Amazon Key App. Lock and unlock the door remotely, and check on the front door at any time via a live stream or by viewing video clips to see who entered and exited and when. The keypad offers the convenience of keyless entry and allows homeowners to easily give family and friends temporary, recurring or permanent access, or one-time access to service people. 

Amazon Key enables optional in-home delivery exclusively for Prime members. Prime members in select cities and surrounding areas can opt-in to have Amazon packages securely delivered just inside their front door. Members can watch their delivery happening live or view a video clip of it later. 

The additional Amazon Key-compatible Yale deadbolts are available now.
