  • Overview

    The Yale Assure Lock SL lets you lock and unlock from your iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, or by just asking Siri—thanks to the HomeKit-enabled iM1 network module. Manage pin codes to share with people you trust, see current lock status, lock/unlock, and customize automations and scenes all from your Apple Home app and Yale Secure app. Manage the lock from anywhere when you have an Apple TV, iPad, or HomePod set up as a home hub.

    For those times when you don't have your iPhone handy, you can simply type in your 4- to 8-digit pin code on the touchscreen keypad to unlock and tap to lock the door behind you. This sleek deadbolt is tamper-proof because it has no key hole to pick and no keys to lose. Don't worry about getting locked out due to dead batteries, the lock and app will alert you when batteries are low and the lock can be temporarily charged using a 9V battery from outside in case of emergencies.

      Hands down the best HomeKit Deadbolt you can buy

      I have tried all the HomeKit locks. Literally. Kwikset, Schlage, August, etc. All of them went back to the store for one reason or another. The Yale is the firs I have tried all the HomeKit locks. Literally. Kwikset, Schlage, August, etc. All of them went back to the store for one reason or another. The Yale is the first one I have absolutely zero complaints with. I have had 3 of these up and running on my HomeKit network for almost a year and they are rock solid. I was becoming worried that no one would ever make a half-decent HomeKit lock, and I am so happy that Yale came through for us! Pros: - Touchscreen is super easy to use and the voice instructions make setting it up very easy. - No physical key! Some might think this is a downside, but I like not having to worry about having my lock bump-picked. - With no physical key, what if the batteries die? Well they thought of that too. Just keep a 9V battery nearby and it will power up the lock from the outside, just enough for you to enter your code. Brilliant. - The battery life has been amazing. I have changed the batteries once after about 9 months of daily use. - The mechanical throw assembly is very nicely designed. It slides clean in and out and doesn't make a loud noise. - Assembly is very simple and they are some really fun 3D illustrations in their app that makes it a breeze. - Guest codes for visitors. Can be easily revoked from the app. - Codes can be varying lengths. This is a huge plus for me. Cons: - One time the lock disappeared from HomeKit and I had to reset it to restore functionality. It turns out I had hit a firmware bug and they pushed out an update. Hasn't happened since. This type of thing used to happen constantly with all the other locks I tried.
