About the Yale Real Living Assure Lock Touchscreen Deadbolt (YRD226) with Z-Wave®
A convenient security solution
A convenient security solution
When my dogwalker lost his key to my house, I had to remember to leave mine in the lockbox for him until I could get to the hardware store to make another one. It took longer than I care to admit. With this electronic smart lock, I'd never have to worry about lost keys ever again.
Yale's Real Living Assure Lock is available in oil rubbed bronze (shown), satin nickel, or bright brass.
Just like the standalone version — this lock's capacitive touchscreen adds a coded entry option to your home. But this version also includes Yale's Z-Wave Network Module, which allows it to work with your existing Z-Wave hub — like SmartThings or Wink — to give you app control of your lock. Some hubs also allow the lock to work with your Amazon Alexa device for voice control.
All you need to replace your existing lock is a screwdriver — everything else to get you going is included in the box. With the included Z-Wave network module, the lock can store up to 250 unique entry codes chosen by you. These codes are between 4 and 8 digits, and they can be created or removed at any time.
The lock also comes with two keys if some members of the household prefer to kick it old school.

More details on the Yale Real Living Assure Lock Touchscreen Deadbolt (YRD226) with Z-Wave®
Overview: The Yale Real Living Assure Lock Touchscreen Deadbolt (YRD226) with Z-Wave Plus is a smart lock that replaces your existing deadbolt door lock. The lock offers keyless entry through the use of the touchscreen keypad, or keyed entry, if desired. With the included Yale Smart Module, you can lock, unlock, and monitor the door lock from anywhere through Yale's Z-Wave Plus Network, including Samsung SmartThings hub. Some hubs on the network even allow you to activate the lock with your voice using Amazon's Alexa. You can store up to 250 unique entry codes, between 4 and 8 digits, to gain entry to your door. Without the Smart Module installed, there are only 25 possible entry codes. The Yale Assure smart lock is powered by 4 "AA" alkaline batteries (included). It is available in Satin Nickel, Polished Brass, and Oil Rubbed Bronze finishes.
Door Compatibility: You can install the Yale Assure Lock on doors with a thickness of 1-3/4" to 2-1/4". A special order thin door gasket kit must be used for doors 1-3/8" thick. The door should have a backset distance of 2-3/8" or 2-3/4" (from the edge of the door to the center of the bore hole), with a face bore hole of 2-1/8" and an edge bore hole of 1".
Installation Overview: Once you have removed the existing door hardware, you should use the included template to be sure your door is compatible (with the proper door thickness, backset placement, and bore hole size). The new latch and strike plate are installed in the bore holes. There are two components of the door lock -- the external escutcheon with the touchscreen, and the internal escutcheon with the thumbturn. The external unit is mounted to the door and attached to the inside mounting plate on the other side with the long through screws. The two units plug together via the 10-pin cable attached to the touchscreen keypad unit. The internal escutcheon mounts to the mounting plate via three short screws. Once the hardware is installed and tested mechanically, you can insert the Yale Smart Module and the 4 "AA" batteries into the slot in the battery compartment. Programming the Smart Lock involves setting the Master PIN and as many User PINs as you need.
Other Programming Features: In addition to setting the Master PIN and User PINs, you can program these other convenient features:
- Automatic Re-lock: You can program the Smart Lock to automatically re-lock after a preset amount of time: 30 seconds (default), 60 seconds, 2 minutes, or 3 minutes. You can also disable the feature, as well.
- Inside Indicator Light: The indoor escutcheon has an LED indicator to show you at a glance if the door is locked or unlocked. The default setting is "disengaged."
- One Touch Locking: When the latch is retracted, you can press any key on the touchscreen to immediately lock the door. The default setting is "engaged."
- Privacy Button Setting: Privacy Mode disables all PIN codes and puts the lock into a "do not disturb" mode. By default, this feature is disabled, and you must press the privacy button (on the indoor escutcheon) for more than 4 seconds to enable it.
- Audio Mode: When a PIN is entered correctly, the Smart Lock will sound a confirmation tone. If you wish to defeat the tones, you can disable the feature through programming.
- All Code Lockout: This mode restricts access to all users except with the Master PIN code. When one of the other PIN codes is entered, the touchscreen flashes 8 times, and beeps 3 times.
- Network Settings: You can allow the Smart Lock to connect with a network controller. You can program the lock to join or exit the network through the programming menu.
Warranty: The Yale Real Living Assure Lock is covered by a Limited Lifetime warranty for the finish and mechanical operation of the lock. The electronics are covered for one year. These warranties apply to the original owner only.
