Comcast Xfinity Home Compatible With Yale Assure Lock Line
The Yale Assure Lock series features key-free or keyed locks in both touchscreen and pushbutton versions, with a choice of three finishes.
BERLIN, Conn. — Yale Locks & Hardware announces that smart locks from its Assure Lock line can now be connected to Comcast’s Xfinity Home service, a home security and home automation solution, when purchased with a Yale Zigbee Network Module.
“We’re delighted to partner with Xfinity Home and have our Assure Lock line play a critical role securing front doors across the country,” says Jason Williams, president, ASSA ABLOY U.S. Residential Group, which includes Yale Residential. “Xfinity Home customers can now connect an Assure Lock that’s right for them and control access and secure their homes from the Xfinity Home mobile app.”
The Yale Assure Lock series consists of key-free or keyed locks in both touchscreen and pushbutton versions, with a choice of three finishes. Four compatible Assure Locks with a Zigbee Network Module (available for purchase separately or with the lock) can be added to the Xfinity Home mobile app. Xfinity Home customers who already own a compatible Assure Lock can purchase the module separately and add the device onto the Xfinity platform.
When Yale’s smart lock is integrated into an Xfinity Home system, the door locks can be controlled and monitored from anywhere using the Xfinity Home mobile app (iOS or Android), according to an announcement. Users can remotely lock and unlock doors, check lock status, and create rules such as receive a notification if the door is unlocked after a certain time.
Additionally, Xfinity Home customers with the X1 voice remote can say, “Lock the front door” to lock their compatible Yale Assure Lock.
“Smart door locks can be a meaningful home security addition, especially when combined with other IoT devices like cameras,” says Patti Loyack, vice president, IP services, and home automation, for Comcast Cable. “Xfinity’s platform gives consumers the ability to manage and control all of their smart devices in one unified experience and we’re excited to give our customers even more choice by integrating the Assure Lock line from Yale.”
