Make it smart

Introducing our new Linus® Smart Lock.

Coming soon.

The Linus® Smart Lock

The Linus® Smart Lock is a secure door lock that allows you to lock and unlock your door – no matter where you are. Access keyless entry, see who’s coming and when, grant virtual guest keys, and check whether the door is open or closed. Enjoy peace of mind, protected by the latest Yale Smart Lock with 180 years of security expertise built in.

Full control from the palm of your hand

Turn your smartphone or Apple Watch into your key. The intuitive Yale Access app for your Android or iOS device lets you manage the access of your home remotely.* You can share access with the people you trust, view activity, and receive notifications.

*Yale Connect Wi-Fi Bridge required.

Installing is a breeze

The Linus® Smart Lock is easy to install over the existing cylinder on the inside of your front door, so you can keep and use your original keys. Your front door will look just the same as before from the outside – without revealing any smart features.

Auto-lock and unlock as you come and go

For peace of mind, the auto-lock feature can automatically lock your door when you leave for the day, either immediately after closing or after a set amount of time via the Yale Access app. When you return home and walk up to your door, Auto-unlock will then unlock it again thanks to geo-fencing, so you don't need to fumble around with keys.


Award-winning design

Grant entry from wherever you are with the Yale Access app

Remote access means you can let in family, friends and trusted visitors like the cleaner or the delivery driver – from anywhere – when Linus® is paired with Yale Connect Wi-Fi Bridge. If someone forgets to lock when they leave, you can take care of it with the tap of a finger.

Expecting guests? Send a virtual key

You can send virtual guest keys to friends, family or people you trust from the Yale Access app. Our Smart Lock can be integrated with top hosting platforms like Airbnb, so guests can come and go as they wish – and you don’t need to worry about lost keys.

Know the ins and outs of your home

The 24/7 activity feed will help you check who is coming and when – even when you're not there. You’ll know when guests have arrived, what time your children got home, and whether your package has been delivered.

Make it smart – together

We partner with leading smart home systems including Apple HomeKit, the Google Assistant, Alexa and others to help simplify and secure your life. Pair your Linus® Smart Lock with your preferred voice assistant to lock, unlock, and check its status.
