Our take on the Nest x Yale Lock with Nest Connect

I've been a fan of Nest since their fledgling days in the home automation world. In fact, I bought a first-gen Nest thermostat before I even bought my home in 2012. I'm excited to now introduce their latest smart home creation — a wireless door lock that marries the convenience of Nest software with the security of lock giant Yale's renowned hardware.

Security and convenience from industry leaders

I've been a fan of Nest since their fledgling days in the home automation world. In fact, I bought a first-gen Nest thermostat before I even bought my home in 2012. I'm excited to now introduce their latest smart home creation — a wireless door lock that marries the convenience of Nest software with the security of lock giant Yale's renowned hardware.

How does it work?

This tamper-proof, key-free deadbolt replaces the existing lock in an exterior door. It connects to your home's Wi-Fi® network through a Nest Connect (included) or a Nest Guard hub (sold separately). It comes with everything you need to do a "fresh" install, including an adjustable deadbolt to accommodate your door and frame.

The lock is powered by 4 "AA" batteries. If it loses power, you can quickly charge it with a 9-volt battery to unlock the door.

Nest x Yale Lock

The Nest x Yale Lock includes all the hardware you need for installation, including an adjustable deadbolt.

Simple, app-based control

Use the free Nest app for Apple® or Android™ to see your lock's status, enable or disable guest access, and lock and unlock your door from anywhere — as long as your lock is connected to the internet.

Here's where the system is super-handy. Say your babysitter or dog-walker is coming over, but doesn't have a house key to get in. Instead of hiding a key under the doormat (or even worse, forgetting to leave one at all), use the app to generate one-time access codes.

You can also create a scheduled window of time in which they can enter. They'll have secure access anytime you want them to, and no access when you don't.

Easy integration with your Nest home security system

The Nest x Yale Lock works in tandem with the Nest Secure alarm system to help keep your home protected. For example, when you unlock your front door, the alarm system automatically disarms itself.

Your lock can also work with the Nest thermostat's Home/Away Assist feature to automatically lock itself when everyone's away from home.

Pros: Easy to Install works with wifi


Nest x Yale Lock with Nest Connect

Crutchfield customer from Santa Clarita, CA on 10/6/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Product is easy to install. Looks and works great. Highly recommended.

Pros: Easy to use. Very convenient. Gives peace of mind when you're away from home.

Cons: Be careful with auto lock. You can accidentally shut the door with the plunger extended. There should be a sensor on the opposite side so it doesn't activate when the door is still open.

Great convenience and no more keys in my pocket!

Felix from Ft Lauderdale, FL on 10/3/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Very cool lock with convenient features. I like the fact that i do not have to carry around a house key anymore. Just type in your code or unlock from your smart phone and that's it! The install was easy and straight forward, I did not have any issues during the installation. If you have a nest thermostat, your AC automatically goes from Away to home and starts cooling your home. It knows when you get home! It is awesome. I would like the deadbolt to have a bit more thickness to it and also to have the pad automatically illuminate when you get close to it. Other than that, it is a very good product and I would recommend it.

Pros: Convenience Ease of installation Great features

Cons: Deadbolt needs to be a bit thicker Need proximity sensor to automatically illuminate the pad when you get close

Great smart home lock

David from San Antonio, TX on 8/24/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I was skeptical about having this kind of lock on my front but i got to say this lock has already been helpful in letting family in without a key as well and not having to worry about getting your keys out to get into your house. It only took 10 min to install and installation as well as set up was a breeze. My favorite feature is the notifications sent to your phone every time the door is locked or unlocked. Allows me to check in on a separate camera facing the door. So far I got to say that this has been an outstanding product and recommend to anyone looking to have a full smart home.

Pros: Different colors to match your door Bright screen Easy install

Cons: Currently not able to lock your door or check the lock with voice commands. (Voice activated personal assistant)

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Easy to install and simple to operate. Very convenient now I don't have to hand out keys to my guest, dog sitter, house cleaner. I will replace my garage door lock too once I have tested its long term reliability, maybe after 6 months.

Nest x Yale Lock with Nest Connect

Crutchfield customer from Iowa City, IA on 6/6/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

A great lock and easy to install. I would pick up a door lock install kit to cut the holes if your current isn't large enough or its a blank door. It took about 20 minutes to install and setup with my current Nest ecosystem. The only con --> your finger prints will build up on the face, so, you'll need to wipe that from time to time.



Excellent lock

Pros: key less easy install great touchscreen


Good, but needs a few improvements

Bary from Penngrove, CA on 4/24/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Only in use for a week but so far my observations are as follows; 1. Make sure you complete every step to install this into the nest system. Otherwise you will get stuck and have to do a reset and start over. Yep, happened. 2. This really is begging for two features. The first is a proximity sensor to illuminate the keypad as you approach when it's dark. Second, take a clue from the Schlage version and have the keypad require a random code be entered each time to avoid fingerprint memory problems. If one person uses the keypad an unwelcome party can quickly figure out what numbers are used. Otherwise I like the device. Time needs to pass before final judgment, but so far it's doing the job.

Pros: Style, wireless, nest integration, don't need a key any longer.

Cons: Nearly impossible to see in the dark, keypad fingerprint memory is concerning.


Hands-on research

Product Research


Overview: The Nest x Yale Lock is a Wi-Fi enabled deadbolt lock. Nest has partnered with Yale, one of the world's best lock hardware developers, to bring you this innovative smart lock. This key-free lock lets you lock and unlock your door with a digital passcode. You can give the passcode to people you trust, instead of a key. You can also lock and unlock your door from anywhere through the Nest app. The lock connects to your Wi-Fi network through the included Nest Connect Wi-Fi extender (or an installed Nest Guard hub). The Next x Yale Lock comes with an inside lock, keypad, deadbolt, strike plate, batteries, and installation hardware.

Door Compatibility: The Nest x Yale Lock can be installed on entry doors made of wood, metal, or fiberglass. The door should be 1-3/8", 1-3/4", or 2" to 2-1/4" in thickness. This will include most standard doors. The lock hole center should be either 2-3/8" or 2-3/4" from the edge of the door.

Inside Lock: The Inside Lock contains the mechanics of the lock, as well as the compartment for the four included "AA" alkaline batteries that power the lock. A thumb-turn is provided for manually locking or unlocking the deadbolt from the inside. Dimensions: Width 2.796", Height 7.03", Depth 1.557" (2.05" including thumb-turn knob).

Keypad: The Keypad is the brain of the Nest x Yale Lock. It installs on the outside of the door where your deadbolt keyhole would typically be. The keypad has ten numeric touch keys (1 through 0), the Yale logo (to wake up the lock), Back and Check buttons, and a Settings button. Warning Status and Low Battery indicators are also included. The touch keys and buttons are backlit, and are only visible when the lock is activated. To lock or unlock the Nest x Yale Lock, enter your passcode on the keypad and press the check button. Even if your Wi-Fi goes down, you can still lock and unlock the door with the keypad. Dimensions: Width 2.589", Height 4.604", Depth 0.717" (1.9" overall).

Power Requirements: The Nest x Yale Lock is powered by four "AA" alkaline batteries. Battery life is typically one year. (Rechargeable batteries are not recommended.) A 9-volt battery connection on the bottom of the keypad allows you to power the lock in case the installed batteries fail.

Nest Connect/Nest Guard: The Nest x Yale Lock will not connect to your Wi-Fi network directly. You must have a Nest Connect (included) or Nest Guard (Wi-Fi hub for Nest Secure) connected to your Wi-Fi network. The Nest x Yale Lock uses Weave, a proprietary and secure communications protocol that works with the many Nest-branded hardware. If you install more than one door lock, you may need to install another Nest Connect or Nest Guard, or install the Nest Connect halfway between your router and your lock.

Nest App: The Nest app lets you know who's coming in or going out your front door. When someone locks or unlocks the door, the Nest app can send an alert. If you have visitors that need entry to your home, you can give them a temporary passcode instead of a key, and set the times when the passcode expires. The Home/Away Assist and Auto-Lock features can be programmed to automatically lock your door when you leave. If someone tampers with the Next x Yale Lock, you'll receive a notification on the app. To give everyone in your household the ability to lock/unlock the door with the app, you should use a Family Account. The Nest app can control other Nest products at the same time, including the Next Learning Thermostat, Nest Secure alarm system, Nest Protect smoke and carbon monoxide alarm, the Nest Hello door camera, and the Nest variety of security cameras. The app is compatible with Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch) running iOS 10.0 or later. It is also compatible with select devices running Android (version varies with the device). The Nest application for laptops and desktop computers is available for Windows 7 or later, Mac OS X v10.9 or later, with the latest versions of Safari, Internet Explorer, Chrome, or Firefox.
