Future unlocked

Yale has launched the Conexis L1 Smart Door Lock, which allows users to configure, control and unlock their door all from their smartphone via the new Bluetooth low energy app.

The new lock is suitable for PVCU and composite doors with a thickness of 44mm-70mm. It has been designed to provide a high level of security, and is PAS24 accredited.

The lock is compatible with most 92mm centred multipoint locks on the market and is easy to fit, only requiring a single screwdriver and tape measure. It also features a secure push and turn thumbturn.

Paul Atkinson, sales and commercial director for Yale Door and Window Solutions, said: “The market demand for smart security solutions is increasing rapidly and, as a result, we’re continually working hard to develop products that meet consumer requirements, while maintaining the high level of security Yale is known and trusted for.

“Like all our products, the Conexis L1 Smart Door Lock has undergone rigorous testing and is protected with our two-year product guarantee. This product gives our trade partners an easy entry point into the smart home market, enabling them to capitalise on the new revenue stream.”

Homeowners can use the new lock create and send mobile keys to family and friends, and keep track of who comes and goes simply using a smartphone. Users can also twist their phone 90º to unlock the front door, as well as having the choice of key tag, key card or phone tag, depending on preference.

When linked with a Yale wireless module, users can connect the Conexis L1 to other Yale smart products, including the Yale Smart Home Alarm and Smart CCTV range, which can then be controlled with the free Yale app for a complete smart home experience.
