Yale Home Introduces Line of Smart Storage Products Security and convenience will extend beyond doors to include storage solutions BERLIN, CT, January 8, 2020 – Yale Home today announced a brand new smart storage product line, which will expand its smart home portfolio to go beyond smart locks for front and interior doors. The new line will include a variety of products, including the Yale Smart Delivery Box, Yale Smart Cabinet Lock and Yale Smart Safe. As with all Yale offerings, this line of smart security products will deliver top-tier security features and convenient access capabilities that will enable customers to protect the things that matter most, both inside and outside the home. All three products will be compatible with a new Yale Access mobile app and Yale Connect Wi-Fi Bridge. This will enable Yale customers to remotely access and manage their smart storage products – lock and unlock, share access with trusted family or friends, view 24/7 access history, receive notifications whenever the lock is opened, and check the lock’s battery life – directly from their phones, from wherever they are. The product line can also be upgraded with a Yale Keypad, allowing users to control the lock with a simple entry code during those phone-free moments. “We’re in the business of protecting our customers’ homes and their most important belongings through trusted hardware and smart accessibility,” said Jason Wiliams, President of Yale’s Smart Residential Group. “We’re committed to extending the peace of mind and convenience we’ve been able to provide through our smart locks to our new smart storage products, protecting everything from package deliveries to jewelry, important documents, medicine and alcohol.” Smart Delivery Box The Smart Delivery Box, designed in partnership with Kingsley Park, a Step2 Company brand, allows customers to receive packages and perishables deliveries (e.g. food, wine, cosmetics, medicine) securely and conveniently. With recent surveys showing at least 36% of American households have experienced package theft, the Delivery Box provides a long-requested “porch piracy” solution that is less invasive than home entry, but more effective than a surveillance camera. The secure box can be placed on front porches, in front of garages, or anywhere where customers receive packages, and weighted down with sand or tethered to the porch so it cannot be stolen. The Delivery Box works with the Yale Access app so users can lock and unlock it remotely, get notifications when a delivery is made, see access history and share access with others. It will be available in Manor Gray. Smart Cabinet Lock The Smart Cabinet Lock goes inside cabinets or drawers to secure valuable belongings, or items that should be kept out of reach from children (e.g. cleaning supplies, medicines, liquor). With the Yale Access app, customers can get notified whenever the lock opens or closes. The lock body can be mounted on the cabinet’s interior base or roof using either the included 3M adhesive or screws for a more permanent installation. Smart Safe The Smart Safe can be placed anywhere or mounted to the floor or wall for more permanence. When connected to the Yale Connect Wi-Fi Bridge, customers can use the Yale Access app to lock, unlock or grant access remotely. Customers always have the option to easily lock and unlock it through the safe keypad with a customizable entry code. The safe comes with a removable shelf, 4 AA batteries and a physical key. If the batteries run out, users can temporarily charge the lock by holding up a 9V battery, enter their code and replace the batteries inside. Should users not have a phone or forget their code, they’re able to use the included key as a back-up entry method.
