I've posted a very similar review on the order page for the Touchscreen locks, but with only four stars for the reasons explained below.
At this point, I have experience with three sub-generations of these products, and the Push-Button versions on this order page are my favorite even though they are a little behind the most up-to-date features. Anyway, these "B1L" or "YRD110" series have real push-buttons instead of a touchscreen. Thankfully these are still available and have all of the important functionality of the newer ones. They do lack voice-guided menus, but not a big problem: I keep a short-hand instruction summary in my phone notes app in case I ever need to re-program the lock. More robotic-style tones vs. the lovely chimes of the newer models, but again perfectly functional.
So why are these my preferred style? From a daily-use point of view, the push-button interface is faster and pleasantly tactile, so you hardly need to look at the unit; your fingers will fly over the buttons naturally and there is no extra "activation" gesture required to wake up the lock. If you are holding bags of groceries, you can do it fast without really looking, lightly touching the key-caps to feel the pattern. The buttons do light up, are weather-sealed and are constructed to resist wear as the numbers are displayed behind a clear key-cap.
The next-generation Touchscreen versions e.g. "YRD240" Z-Wave and "YRD446" Z-Wave+Bluetooth, as well various other options, are available on the Touchscreen order page - and I have a similar review there also. Those have a more trendy capacitive touch-panel, voice-guided menu programming, and nicer-sounding tones. An interchangeable wireless module (supplied with the wireless versions) plugs in to the battery compartment; you could convert the lock to Zigbee, Bluetooth or Z-Wave+Bluetooth or (possibly) some future upgrade, by swapping modules. Note that the "NR" or No-Radio version can be purchased cheaper if you have no Smart-Home hub today, and then you can buy a wireless radio module later. I believe these newer units also have improved Z-Wave range, though I've had no issue with the range of the older B1L.
The touchscreen works well, but I find it's a little slower and less-convenient than the push-button interface. First, you need to "wake-up" the lock by (briefly) holding the front or back of your fingers against the panel, at which point it chimes and lights up. Next enter the code, but here you will typically need to look at the panel so as to land your fingertips on the displayed numerals, ending with the star key to complete the sequence. Not bad, but really a little bit of a nuisance compared to the push-button method described above.
There is also the Bluetooth touchscreen option, available with or without Z-Wave. The Bluetooth feature seems cool at first, but I would say it's probably unnecessary if you have a Z-Wave Smart-Home network. Associated with the Bluetooth operation is the ability to gesture with your phone instead of typing in the code sequence, though you still need to tap the lower-left corner of the panel to actually open the lock. This admittedly solves some of the look-and-type issues mentioned above, but you have to get your phone out which is otherwise unnecessary with these locks. There is a phone app that lets you give out temporary key-codes to visitors etc., but you can do similar things remotely with amy pf the Z-Wave locks, or set up temporary or one-time codes at the lock itself with any of the models, even the "NR" versions. I would say that the Bluetooth features are good if you don't yet have a hub, but may not get much use if you do, unless the phone-twist unlocking really appeals to you.
I won't go into a review of the installation, other than warning potential buyers that, as with any of these motorized locks, you need to have a door with a smoothly-operating deadbolt before you change over to a motorized lock. The bolt is slightly tapered to help alignment, but the motor is not strong enough to overcome doors that have to be pushed, pulled or jiggled to free up the deadbolt.
Bottom line for me is that I wish Yale (Assa Abloy is the parent company) would continue to bring the newer features like voice-menus and improved radio modules to the Push-Button line. Maybe their marketers have decided the buttons are yesterday's news, but I'd say they just work better. This point is the main reason for me to award five stars to the Push-Button units but only four to the Touchscreen models, despite the other upgrades. Otherwise I'm very happy to have any of these locks and stop messing with keys.
I have it consistently automated to unlock the front door when we arrive via the life360 app on each of the family members phones. It also automatically locks if left unlocked for too long or when "night" and "home" verbal Alexa commands are given.
Zwave Smart Things Installation Tips:
1. Make sure deadbolt hole is deep enough for entire bolt to extend all the way out when locked. (Otherwise it can randomly bind causing disassembly to free it up)
2. Install the older "SmartThings Classic" app if you are having trouble pairing via zwave. (Both apps can be installed at the same time working in sync)
3. If you are still having issues, then remove deadbolt from app and re-add it with the Classic app after making sure the following settings are set in the new Smart things app (icon has multiple circles)
- Menu > Devices > SmartThings Hub
1. Secure Mode > On
2. Device Firmware Updates > Do Not Allow
- Appears to be solidly built.
- Nice looking unit inside and out. Kind of disappears in to my dark door, which is perfect.
- Packaging is excellent, all parts bagged separately, good, readable instructions.
- I am far from a handyman and was able to install this myself with no bad words in less than half an hour. (I replaced an existing Weslock deadbolt that was the identical size, so no door modifications were needed.)
Things to be aware of:
- The instructions for installation were excellent UNTIL you get to the end and it's time to set the Master PIN code. The steps shown are WRONG. (As of 7/19/19) After many tries, I went to the support website and found a very good installation video. Once I got to the part about setting the Master PIN, it was different. And it too was WRONG. I called the 800 number included in the packaging and got a very helpful (and easily understood) tech rep that confirmed they were aware of a problem and walked me through the CORRECT steps. At the end of my call, she emailed me the steps so I have them for future reference. (THIS INFO WILL SAVE YOU TIME AND FRUSTRATION.)
- The coding process is not quite as clean as I'd like. There's a lot of "Push the Gear key, then that number, then the Gear key, then another number, then the Gear key again and you can finally enter the entry code. It's not hard, but it sure isn't intuitive and I would think 95% of users are going to need to have instructions when they go back to set up a new entry code for a new user. Not a big deal in my situation since I'm setting it up for family, but it would cause me to pause if I were using it for an Airbnb unit.
- Another detail that will be an issue for some is that when you set up a code, you give it a "position". (1, 2, 3, etc.) So, if you have 10 codes set and you want to set up the 11th, you'll need to know that the first 10 "positions" are taken and designate "position" 11 for the new code. If you try to use a "position" that is already assigned, it will beep and not let you do it. (But not indicate why.) If you max out the codes or want to update one, you'll need to keep a list and delete the code in the previous "position" in order to replace it or enter a new one. Kinda clunky, obv.
- One other little detail. In the instructions related to the coding, the icon representing the "Gear" (or Settings) key is EASILY mistaken for the zero key. My first 8-9 failed attempts to set up a Master PIN was related to mis-reading the icon.
- I have not yet set this up with my Echo units. If there are any more significant quirks, I'll update. Other than that, assume it worked.

This is the Z-Wave version - but I would have been happy with it even without Z-Wave. It's just a seamless addition to the home. With bank cards in the phone, passive entry into the car and keypad at the door I have truly enjoyed a feeling of not being tethered to all my accessories that I didn't expect.
As this IS the Z-Wave version I have connected it to my SmartThings Hub. By default it will NOT provide you with user control and other fancy features out of the box, it will provide basic lock, unlock and tamper information. With a quick tour of the forums, you can find a device handler better suited for the Yale lock and you can get additional features making this quite the awesome addition. (Including such things as running automated processes based on which user unlocks the door)
The response time to the home automation hub is almost immediate when the door is unlocked/locked from the inside or outside of the door. This has been entertaining when my 2 year old has gotten excited about locking/unlocking the door. :)
If I had to come up with something I didn't like about it, it would be the amount of space taken up on the inside of the door. This would less intrusive if the battery cover wasn't flat black (instead of being made of the same material as the lock). If tiny dainty dead bolts on the inside of your doors is a problem, that would be the ONLY thing I can think of that people wouldn't appreciate. To be fair MOST electronic locks take up a lions share of space on the inside of the door anyways.
I can't say how good the batteries will be - but they have done between 500-1000 unlock/lock cycles (thanks to the kids) and the battery still reads 100%. I am using name brand Alkaline batteries and am curious to see how winter affects battery life (even though the batteries are on the warm side of the door).
My other lock struggled to latch fully into the deadbolt but this lock has a tapered deadbolt and goes in very smoothly.
It comes with a nice rubber gasket on the inside and the outside to make a nice seal around the door.
Very happy with this purchase.
However, once you have the master passcode setup, I was able to hook it up into my SmartThings hub within seconds. The integration is smooth, and I was able to have the lock automated within a minute using the SmartThings app. Now my door opens when any family member gets within the geofence, locks when no one is home or right before bed time.
If you are a micro-manager, and like to fiddle with the settings, give individual users unique codes, grant/revoke daily, etc, there are certainly better alternatives out there with more intuitive user interface. If your goal is to have a dependable zwave lock for home automation, set it and forget it style, I highly recommend this lock!
Note: once this thing is hooked up to the SmartThings hub, there are git repos out there that aims to solve this problem if you are comfortable with running some code, search for smartthings lock manager.
Yale support is inexistant (sorry guys). Had a problem with the latch and I had to write them for about 6 months to obtain a replacement part.
The second one was a refurbished with "Large cosmetic imperfection(s)" ! But the price was excellent (60% rebate) and with Prime, not a real problem. I'm still trying to find the imperfections... Like new and works A++
If you have the money, purchase a Z-wave Plus unit (more expensive) instead. But those units are nice for the price, and fully functional. Worth the purchase.
