Yale Announces Product Line for Professional Installers
The Yale Pro SL is a key-free smart lock with built-in Z-Wave Plus technology that integrates with popular smart home and alarm systems.
BERLIN, Conn. — Yale announces the launch of the Yale Pro SL, a Pro Series product line designed for professional installers.
The Pro SL is a key-free smart lock with built-in Z-Wave Plus (500 Series) technology that offers seamless integration with popular Z-Wave Plus smart home and alarm systems, such as ADT, Resideo by Honeywell, Alarm.com, Qolsys, AT&T, Ring Alarm and more, according to the company.
“The Yale Pro SL was developed as a direct response to feedback from our professional customers,” says Andrew DaSilva, product manager at Yale Residential. “By merging the sleek form of our highly popular Yale Assure Lock SL with the professional functionality of the T1L product, the Yale Pro SL delivers a highly aesthetic slim design, small bore hole support, and upgraded functionality of Z-Wave Plus built-in — the most commonly used wireless protocol in the pro-installed security market place. We’re excited to release more products specifically designed for our professional audience moving forward.”
The Yale Pro SL’s keypad wakes by touching the Yale logo, and locks with another touch of the logo. To unlock, homeowners enter their custom entry code or provide trusted guests and visitors with unique codes, and then rescind access by deleting the code.
If the lock is integrated into a smart home or alarm system, users are also able to remotely lock/unlock and manage access from their smart home or alarm system’s mobile app.
Yale says in addition to providing access, high-level security is built into the smart lock. Unlike standard deadbolts, there is no cylinder to pick, and the keypad design eliminates the need to worry about physical keys being lost or stolen.
A 9V battery back-up charger located below the keypad ensures homeowners do not get locked out due to dead batteries. Installation takes a few minutes with a screwdriver, and Pros can easily integrate it with compatible smart home devices and alarm systems through a one-touch Z-Wave enrollment process, according to the company.
The Yale Pro SL comes in three finishes designed to match popular door hardware: bronze, brass and satin nickel. It is available for purchase now at security wholesale centers, including ADI, Anixter and other regional wholesalers.
