It installs in a door with existing deadbolt in under 10 minutes.
The hardware has a durable, quality feel. The material has some heft to it. The clearances are tight.
I like that the deadbolt it’s self is slightly tapered. This really helps if your door is slightly miss-aligned, which most doors are to some degree.
I did make a few adjustments to my existing door hardware to improve aligment. Not because I had to, but because little things bug me. If you need to move existing hardware and you have holes to fill so you can move a screw over a few millimeters, simply take a few toothpicks, or a kabob stick, dip it in a quality wood glue, and drive it in the old screw hole (use enough sticks to tightly fill the hole). After the glue is set, cut off the protruding stick. You can use a box knife, or a chisel, in some cases you can even snap it off by hand. Now with a clean slate, you are free to reposition hardware and put screws in a more ideal location. Again this is not necessary with this hardware, if your existing deadbolt locks freely. But I thought I would throw in the pro tip, if you obsess about details, as I do.
Now for what I did not like:
The instructions are somewhat incomplete.
They leave out important details like:
Which Yale app works with this lock. There are three.
Answer Yale Secure
How many phones can sync to the lock it’s self?
Answer 1, sort of.
You can sync 1 iPhone directly to the lock. Subsequent attempts to sync additional phones will fail.
BUT,,,,, you can use more iPhones and iPods, and watches, and iPads. You get the idea.
You use the synced, “main iPhone”, and you set up Apple home. You then invite the other devices to join your home. After the additional i devices accept, they can see the Yale lock and load it as an option.
After you have the Yale Assure iM1 lock assigned in Apple Home, they can either ask Siri to unlock or lock the door. You can also open Apple Home and press the lock to either lock or unlock the door.
You have a third option to lock the door, simply place your palm over the touch screen.
Pro tip, you can, at times, wake the lock with one finger. Just press the bottom left corner of the touch screen. This is the area where the check mark would be displayed. I have had success waking the touch pad, and locking the door with one finger, using this technique.
The app can be laggy, and at times it says it’s updating, making you wait to unlock your door. This causes a little concern for me, that there may be times you can not unlock your door via the app. With this lock lacking any physical key option, this could pose a problem. I would not add this lock to every door if my home st this time. I would want to leave a fail safe door that I could access, if my smart stuff,dumbed out on me.
I would put this lock on my primary door. It’s beautiful. It has fantastic hardware, with a lifetime warranty, and I trust that eventually they will get the software stuff worked out.
Yale recently acquired August locks. Hopefully they will go to one app that works with all their hardware. Hopefully that app will offer the user choices in how they would like to unlock their door. Some may prefer proximity unlock. Others may be affraid that their phone inside their home may accidentally unlock the door. Some may want to use the wave the phone unlock method offered to Yale Assure app users. This will not work with the Yale Secure enabled locks, even though they may be called Yale Assure iM1.
You currently have two choices to unlock the door. Asking Siri is the easiest. But it does require your iPhone to be unlocked and turned on.
Much of what I have described in this review is not available by reading the directions included with this lock. I found it through trial and error, and a few calls to Yale customer service. They can be hard to reach. Use only the phone number included in your lock set. Don’t bother with the numbers on their site.
If you lose the master code provided with the lock, it is printed on the orange iM1 chip that you plug in above the batteries. So if you lose the original code, All is not lost.
You will need that code to set up your new primary code. You will need it to set up the lock in Apple Home as well.
I’m not an IT guy, so I may not have described the easiest way to set this lock up. But these are the tricks I used to get mine working.
If the app were as beautifully made as the hardware, this would be a 6 Star item. As it stands, the beauty of the hardware is enough to earn it 4 *, because the app could earn it 1*. I’m confident the acquisition of August locks will improve that.
It has the same features as the larger Assure series just in a smaller package.
This HomeKit enabled version is great for any Apple user. I have an iPhone and 4th generation Apple TV and it works well with Siri.
The lock is pretty straight forward to install in any deadbolt 2-1/8" bored hole.
The app needs a little more refinement and tweaking. I am giving the lock 5 stars because it works great as a stand-alone lock.
It also works good with Siri. I just find that the app is not polished and is sometimes very confusing to operate.
I am rating the lock at 5 stars. Since the app applies to the a whole bunch of Yale locks I will treat it separately. I would only give it 2 or 3. I hope Yale will continue to invest in the evolution and development of the app as it is critical for their future success in this market. With other innovative locks like August, Kwikset and Schlage they do have heavy competition. I do like the Yale aesthetics and quality. They are just a little behind on the app.
5 stars for a great quality electronic lock.
The oil rubbed bronze color is nicely done, and is hefty in weight with the right amount, which is always good to have in a lock, you don't want cheap plasticky materials.
I was able to remove my old latch and install this lock easily in less than half an hour. It's quite straightforward and I did not face any gotchas. Most people I forsee will be either removing an old lock and putting this one in, or putting it in a pre-drilled/holed new door, both of which should be easy. One minor matter, one screw was missing that goes into the latch plate on the door side, no big deal, I just re-used my old lock's screw, but something to take note of in quality control, it will prevent unnecessary phone calls to Yale and shipping charges for them :)
While installing, you plug in the supplied iM1 module, which magically makes your lock be able to do Homekit. This lock is not a bluetooth lock, it's a Homekit lock. What this means is, you add this lock as you would any Homekit accessory via the supplied simple instructions to your Apple Home, and then you are able to remotely access it, control it, lock, unlock, update settings, both via it's own Yale app as well as the Apple Home app, as well as if you have Homekit hub like Apple TV, you can program it to do intelligent things like: if door unlocked, turn on hue lights in living room.
The front of the lock is a simple touch pad, with three fingers back of palm, you enable it on, and then with the supplied keypad on it, you touch and unlock, or update settings, access various menu items. Sky is the limit to program this lock. You can do things like:
- Hey siri, unlock my front door
- Make guest key codes with just limited privileges (can unlock lock but not access settings as an example)
- Control remotely the lock from anywhere if you have an Apple homekit hub like Apple TV, or from within your home wifi connected devices like iphone, ipod
- no keys to carry and risk losing on the neighborhood stroll
- home alarm goes on, police comes in to check, can provide a guest key to home alarm company to give to police, same for emergency service providers like fire, gas etc
- See battery status on the Yale app, and if battery is out, use a 9V battery to jump start it and use it from outside, and hence not get locked out after that long vacation
The app is very robust and apart from battery status, you can control settings like:
-- Autorelock : after you open and come in, and close door auto close after sometime
-- indicator lights inside to show status of door
-- language settings
-- privacy mode, so if you touch a button inside, the door cannot be opened from outside at all, its like a hotel's do not disturb :)
-- wrong code entry limit
-- and more
You can also do all this and more from the touchpad of the lock, but its more cumbersome, but for some stuff like creating user pin codes, and advanced settings, you will have to go through there. There is a detailed guide supplied on how to do stuff, and trouble shooting.
It would be nice if the app is made more functional feature supporting and as well as each setting has a help text to let you know what it is.
