Crestron has announced the release of Crestron Connected Yale Real Living residential wirelessly-controlled door locks. Yale, a maker of 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.
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.
