Yale unlocks the home of the future - Conexis L1

Yale Conexis L1

Leading lock specialist Yale, has launched the brand new Conexis®L1 Smart Door Lock that puts homeowners fully in control of their door, allowing them to configure, control and unlock the door all from a smartphone, via a Bluetooth low energy App.

When investigating the smart home market, research revealed 62% of consumers want the ability to remotely lock and unlock their door from anywhere at anytime*. The Conexis® L1 does just that, enabling users to create and send mobile keys to family and friends, and keep track of who comes and goes simply using their smartphone. Thanks to the new Twist and Go functionality, homeowners can also twist their phone 90 degrees to unlock the front door, as well as having the choice of key tag, key card or phone tag.

As such, Yale is encouraging retailers to stock up on the future of door hardware to meet customer demand.

The lock has been specifically designed for quick and easy DIY installation, requiring only a single screwdriver and tape measure to fit. It is suitable for both PVCu and Composite doors. And don’t worry if the electricity goes down! The smart lock is powered by four AA batteries and will send a warning notification to your smartphone when the batteries begin running low. It even has a backup battery connection port on its external side, which can be used to power the lock in the event of a flat battery.

Stephen Roberts, Marketing Manager for Yale, comments: “The Conexis® L1 gives homeowners total control of who can access their home and provides the ultimate peace of mind, knowing your loved ones are home safely.

“In addition to a tamper alarm, the Conexis®L1 is PAS24 accredited, providing the superior standard of security that Yale is famous for, giving retailers and consumers confidence in the quality of the technology.”

When linked with a Yale wireless module, users can connect the Conexis® L1 to other Yale smart products, including the Yale Smart Home Alarm or Smart CCTV range, which can then be controlled via the free Yale Home app.
