Yale Locks & Hardware has announced the launch of its lock designed and built in collaboration with Nest, the Nest x Yale Lock, a Works with Nest product that is controlled using the Nest app.

The Nest x Yale Lock is a key free touchscreen deadbolt that provides building owners with 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. Building owners 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.

The keyless design of the lock means that building owners don’t need to worry about keys getting lost, copied or stolen, or loaning keys to neighbors or others who need temporary access. The deadbolt is 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 building owners 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 low profile design, with an intuitive user interface. It replaces an existing deadbolt, so installation requires just a screwdriver in most cases. Set up is made simple by the use of voice prompts.

The hardware and software security of the lock 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 Weave technology from Nest.

Should power fail, Wi-Fi go down, or phones become unavailable or dead, Nest x Yale Lock can be opened using the touchscreen. And the 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 touching a nine-volt battery to the terminals at the bottom of the lock.
