Bring Hands-Free Entrances to Your Renters with Yale Home Smart home technologies such as smart thermostats, locks and lightbulbs already introduce value and convenience to renters in multi-family units – and even more so during COVID-19 by providing a more contactless living experience. Let’s explore the Yale Assure Lock Keypad with Z-Wave, which integrates with ADT’s Multi-family security platform to secure front doors of both individual units and shared complex spaces. The Yale Assure Lock, when paired with Yale’s Navis Paddle, creates an entirely hands-free access experience that is perfect for apartment front doors and highly-trafficked entrances. The Assure Lock and Navis Paddle bundle can be installed directly on units as well as anywhere where renters may encounter shared entrances, such as in lobbies or mail rooms, or shared facilities such as the laundry room or gym. Renters can use their ADT mobile app to unlock the door as they approach, then use a hip or elbow to push or pull open the Navis Paddle and enter without ever touching a key or shared doorknob surface. Hands-free opening also helps renters navigate these spaces when their hands are full, such as when they’re carrying groceries or after they’ve picked up their packages. When leaving their apartment or complex, renters can enable Auto Relock with the ADT app so exits are also hands-free. Bundles such as the Yale Assure Lock Keypad Z-Wave + Navis Paddle help residents keep their own homes safe, minimize contact amongst themselves, and ensure the building’s overall safety and security. The safety and convenience of an integrated smart lock and push/pull handle will not only add great benefit now, but also endure past COVID-19.
