The Smart Lock You’ve Been Looking For, From The Brand That’s Been Trusted Since 1840

January 22, 2019

Yale Locks, the lock brand that’s been trusted worldwide since 1840, has joined forces with sister company, August Home, to launch a new line of Assure Locks - Connected by August. With these smart locks users are able to control, monitor and share access from anywhere through the August mobile app. The new line of keypad smart locks is the first product collaboration between the two ASSA ABLOY brands — it combines Yale’s secure lock hardware with August’s app and cloud-based software to create the most full-featured smart locks.

Assure Locks - Connected by August will enable Yale customers to replace their existing deadbolt or lever / knob (using the new Assure Lever launching this Spring 2019) and keys with a smart keypad lock. Users can unlock with the method of their choosing: using the August mobile app, Auto Unlock via Bluetooth, by asking their favorite voice assistant (Google Assistant, Alexa or Siri) and, as with all Yale Real Living locks, the option to unlock with an entry code on the lock keypad is always available. With select Assure models, there is also the option of using a physical key.

The August Connect WiFi Bridge is included in the Connected by August Kit, which allows for remote access. The new smart locks are compatible with Amazon Alexa, Apple’s Siri and the Google Assistant, so users will be able to integrate them with the voice assistant of their choice. They also work with leading security systems, such as SimpliSafe, as well as hosting platforms, such as Airbnb and HomeAway.

“When August became part of the ASSA ABLOY family, it made perfect sense for the two companies to combine one another’s expertise to build new and exciting products for our customers,” said Jason Williams, President of Yale’s Residential Group. “We’ve brought together our respective teams of engineers and designers to create products that seamlessly integrate our most trusted hardware with our smartest software.”

Current Yale Assure Lock owners can also upgrade their locks with the new Connected by August Kit, which includes the Connected by August Module, August Connect Wi-Fi Bridge and DoorSense™. Assure Lock users with the Connected by August Kit can enjoy advanced smart lock features, including Auto Unlock upon arrival and Auto Lock upon close via August's DoorSense™ technology. The new smart locks can be managed through the August mobile app, where users are able to lock and unlock, share access with others, and know who comes or goes from anywhere.

The Assure Lock Connected by August line includes three deadbolt models — the Assure Lock SL, a sleek, 100% key-free lock with an edge-to-edge touchscreen keypad at $299 MSRP, the Assure Lock Touchscreen featuring a keypad as well as traditional key access at $279 MSRP and finally, the Assure Lock Keypad featuring acrylic push buttons at $259 MSRP. For doors with no deadbolt, there are the two new Assure Levers, announced at CES 2019, that will be launching this Spring 2019. The Connected by August Kit can be purchased separately to upgrade existing Assure Locks for $129 MSRP. For more information, visit
