When it comes to keyless entry door locks, the technology has come a long way. Gone are the days when keys or punch pads are your only option to get in the door.

Nowadays there is a new generation of smart locks that can be opened with an iPhone app, via a digital keypad and even locked and unlocked remotely.

No more getting keys cut for family members, or driving to work, only to wonder if you remembered to lock the door or not.


5 Reasons the Yale Assure SL Digital Door Lock with Apple HomeKit is the best Smart Door Lock of 2018

1. You no longer have to worry about carrying around keys

Get the freedom of locking and unlocking your home with your iPhone or by simply using the lock’s touchscreen keypad so you’ll never have to carry around keys again.

2. Unlock remotely or share digital pin code keys with guests, friends and family

Is your sister waiting outside the house while you are at the supermarket? Have friends getting in on a midday flight while you are at work? No problem, you can either remotely open the door from your iPhone or create a digital pin code key that they can use via the lock’s digital keypad and let themselves in.

3. View lock status and customise lock settings and pin codes

Can't remember who you have issued keys to? The cleaner? The dog walker? You can see the issued keys on your mobile, and easily delete any that are no longer required.

4. Program up to 25 unique pin codes

Imagine how much getting 25 keys cut at Mr Minute would cost you.

5. Integrate seamlessly with your smart home

With Apple HomeKit the Assure SL connects to your home hub via an iPad, Apple TV or HomePod and helps to create a complete smart home solution – meaning it can sync with other HomeKit accessories. Therefore it is totally conceivable to have the lights turn on when the door opens.
