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.
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.
