The smart lock is now available to purchase and is compatible with the new smart home protocol.
A smart lock is a great first step into the world of smart home technology. And one of the most notable names in the industry has just unveiled a new flagship slot with a host of connectivity options.
We tell you more about the Yale Assure Lock 2.
Smaller and ready for business
The new product line-up was announced via a press release. All Assure Lock 2 models are 30 percent smaller than the original and work with more doors of different thicknesses and bore sizes, making them easier to install.
All models feature built-in smart home connectivity.
The Assure Lock works with Bluetooth and Apple HomeKit technology. You just need to have an Apple smart home hub installed. Learn how to set up your Apple TV or HomePod as a smart home hub.
You can choose from a keyless or keyless version of the lock. Each of these can be purchased in a touchscreen or keyboard version. Or keyboard version is $159.99 while the touchscreen option is $20 more.
To better suit your home, three different finishes are also available.
Assure Lock 2 with Wi-Fi offers more features and works with Apple HomeKit, Google Home, Amazon Alexa and more.
One of the best options with the new locks is easy expansion modules. If Assure Lock 2 users want to upgrade to Wi-Fi, they can simply purchase a $79.99 add-on module.
And when the Matter standard officially arrives later in 2022, users will be able to purchase a module for the same price to upgrade to the new smart home protocol.
Why the matter module is important
If you haven’t heard, Matter has the potential to reverse the closed-wall approach of the current smart home market.
Instead of having to choose a smart home system like Amazon Alexa or Apple HomeKit, Matter makes that unnecessary. Be sure to see Matter in action.
