BERLIN, Conn., September 26, 2017 – Yale Locks & Hardware today announced the launch of a new line of interconnected electronic locksets for multi-family applications that provides property owners a cost-effective, scalable wireless access management solution and residents a new level of convenience.
The new interconnected locks combine an electronic deadbolt with an integrated lever to offer single motion egress for residential safety and security. The interconnected locks are available on two platforms – the Yale Real Living Assure® platform, which offers the convenience of wireless operation using Z-Wave or ZigBee technology, or with data-on-card technology which is compatible with Yale Accentra™ cloud-based lock management software.
The Assure locks are available in Z-Wave or ZigBee configurations for seamless integration into over 50 alarm and home automation platforms, and are available in three styles -- push button or touchscreen keypads with cylinder override, or a key-free touchscreen that eliminates rekeying costs and the hassle of keeping track of keys. The option of Bluetooth control uses digital keys accessed through the Yale Assure app. The data-on-card version is a touchscreen keypad with key override and is compatible with Yale Accentra cloud-based lock management software that enables easy access management from any location or device. Cards and/or fobs are used for access, and one-time PIN codes can be issued in the event of a lockout, eliminating the need for after-hours service calls. Both product lines make it easy and affordable for property owners to transition from cumbersome conventional locks and keys to a scalable access management system that simplifies operations while enhancing security and convenience for residents.
Both the Yale Assure and data-on-card electronic locksets are ANSI/BHMA Grade 2 certified and the data-on-card version is also 90 minute UL certified. Each can be installed in minutes using only a screwdriver. From the inside, both the latchbolt and the deadbolt are retracted simultaneously in a single motion for a quick and easy exit.
“Our new interconnected products are ideal for multi-family properties, assisted living facilities and other multi-resident properties looking to upgrade to the convenience and security of an access management system, but without the steep upfront costs typically associated with these systems,” said Jason Williams, President, ASSA ABLOY U.S. Residential Group, which includes Yale Residential. “With no wiring to run, costs are minimized, while the key-free option eliminates a source of aggravation for both property owners and residents.”
For maximum flexibility and convenience the locks are available with spacing between the deadbolt and lockset of 4 or 5-1/2 inches center-to-center, and the backset is field adjustable to 2-3/8 or 2-3/4 inches. This flexibility makes the locks ideal for any project, whether new construction or retrofit. Handing is also field adjustable, and the locks are available with a fixed core and Small Format Interchangeable Core (SFIC) cylinders.
The Assure locks are available in three finishes – bright brass, satin nickel plated and oil rubbed bronze – and 12 lever designs, while the Yale Accentra version offers an additional finish – dark oxidized satin bronze.
