Enter your home hands-free Imagine, on a busy day, when your hands are tied with children and groceries, and you’re rooting around in the bottom of your bag for the keys to your main door – wouldn’t it make your life easier if you approached your door step and the door just opened for you? At CES 2020, Las Vegas, Yale introduced Linus®, a brand new motorised Smart Lock that offers consumers high level of security, added functionalities, and best-in-class design. Already recognised for an award, a day after public announcement, Linus® picked up the ‘Ambient Top Pick’ prize at CES 2020. Powered by advanced software and the user-friendly Yale Access app, when combined with the Yale Connect Wi-Fi Bridge, the Linus® Smart Lock offers the ability to lock and unlock your door, grant keyless access and keep track of who comes and goes with a 24/7 access history, all from your phone, from anywhere in the world. It’s Door Sense™ Technology lets you know when the door has been opened or closed. And thanks to the app’s geolocation feature, your door can be opened automatically as you approach the doorstep! Yale has strived to meet the growing demand for highly aesthetic smart home security solutions when creating Linus®. To achieve this, the home security expert partnered up with Yves Behar, a Swiss designer, co-founder and Chief Creative Officer at August, Yale’s sister company and founder of Fuse project, an award-winning industrial design and brand development firm. Having developed product identities for clients such as Apple, Hewlett-Packard, and Silicon Graphics, Yves has given Linus® a sleek and practical design, inspired by the very people that will be using the smart lock in their everyday lives. Designed with a stunning brushed metal finish, and in the choice of silver or black, the smart lock delivers unmatched features and ease of use, while still fitting stylish and modern homes. Yale introduces Smart Cabinet Lock at CES 2020 Yale announced yet another smart solution to help keep consumers’ valuables safe and lock-style smart, at the CES 2020 - the Smart Cabinet Lock, which is a two-piece set designed to fit inside cabinets or drawers to secure belongings. If you’re worried about kids fidgeting with your important documents at home, this lock is ideal to keep them out of their reach, and also to monitor an elderly loved one's medicine cabinet. The lock is compatible with the Yale Access mobile app and the Yale Connect Wi-Fi Bridge, which let you monitor your device remotely and share access with friends and family. Moreover, you receive alerts via the app whenever the lock storage opens, and have access to see if the door or drawer hasn’t been closed properly. The lock is also compatible with the Yale Keypad, which allows access via an entry code. The lock mounts with 3M adhesive or screws, and features a green release button that glows in the dark to alert you in case a child accidentally climbs into a locking space. The importance of cabinet locks cannot be undermined, after all they are important to keep your valuables, and prized possessions safe and secure. Yale’s range of smart locks help keep your favorite things safe, while giving you peace of mind and making everyday life easier.
