Sep 23, 2013
Crestron cloud-based control system connectivity enables direct communication and control of Yale Real Living wireless door locks
Crestron today announced the release of Crestron Connected Yale Real Living residential wirelessly-controlled door locks. The residential intelligent door locks join the growing list of third party Crestron Connected devices. Yale, an industry leader in residential and business locks, now integrates its Yale Real Living product with Crestron control systems to provide direct communication, control, management and monitoring of door locks. This enables homeowners to lock/unlock doors remotely from a Crestron touch screen or a mobile device, set schedules, and personalize access to the home.
The Crestron Connected initiative embeds Crestron control intelligence into a wide selection of third-party source equipment and display devices such as projectors, displays, and audio/video receivers to operate seamlessly with Crestron control technologies. Crestron brings together world-class technology, including audio/video, lighting, HVAC, scheduling software, security and many other product categories.
Using Crestron infiNET EX wireless protocol, the new Yale Real Living wirelessly-controlled door locks can receive commands and even communicate with the other devices through the Crestron control system, with very little programming required. Doors can be locked/unlocked from anywhere in the house, using a Crestron touch screen or remotely using the Crestron app for mobile devices. When the door is locked/unlocked, the Crestron system can simultaneously turn lights on/off, adjust shades and temperature, and set the alarm. The locks are illuminated for convenient night time entry and can be used on all standard doors.
Homeowners can also give access to individuals every day or create a schedule to allow guests to enter the home on certain days. Each family member and guest receives a unique pin, so the homeowner can monitor system activity (up to 250 users). Adding/deleting individual users is a simple task. The system can also monitor door position, battery status, and alarm status. A Crestron Connected device is recognized natively by the Crestron processor and allows for full control capabilities out-of-the-box, without any special drivers or modules.
"Crestron has an outstanding reputation in the control and automation industry," said Jason Williams, General Manager of Yale Residential. "By integrating the Yale Real Living locks with Crestron products, we provide homeowners with the best of both worlds: a secure, convenient, and aesthetically pleasing lock, combined with a level of control that turns the home into a smart home."
"We're excited to announce the availability of the Crestron Connected Yale locks," said Steve Samson, Crestron Director of Business Development. "The Integration of Yale wirelessly-controlled door locks into a Crestron control system provides increased convenience to homeowners, enabling them to remotely grant access to visitors, track who enters the home and when. Crestron and Yale are taking home security into the future."
The Crestron Connected Yale Real Living door locks will be available in two styles and several finishes: elegant acrylic touch screen or durable push button. The Crestron Connected locks will be available through the Crestron authorized dealer channel. To learn more visit the product page.
