Advanced Security and Home Management Solution Can Lock and Unlock Doors From Any Web-Enabled Device - Even Across the Country

LENOIR CITY, TN, September 14, 2012 - Yale Locks & Hardware (www.yalelocks.com), an ASSA ABLOY Group company and a world leader in door hardware for residential and commercial applications, announces that its Yale Real Living™ portfolio of access control and home security solutions is now integrated into 2GIG's Go!Control panel.

As a result of this integration, Go!Control users can now remotely lock and unlock doors over any web interface, whether through a desktop computer, laptop, cell phone or tablet - even across the country. Through the Go!Control panel (which uses Alarm.com as the backend service), users also will have access to a wide range of features offered with the Yale Real Living locks, including the ability to activate and deactivate user codes; create personalized access-control scenes; and an audit trail to track activity.

Go!Control is a sophisticated security and home management solution with built-in Z-Wave RF Protocol. Introduced in 2007, it was the first all-in-one panel capable of handling a full spectrum of security and home automation activities.

Yale Real Living is the first lock specifically designed to seamlessly integrate into the digital home. Available in both durable acrylic touchscreen or simple, elegant, tamper-resistant keypad, Yale's new deadbolt and lever locks support both Z-Wave® and ZigBee®, allowing them to integrate seamlessly into a wide range of home control and security systems, now including the 2GIG system.

"The integration of our Go!Control panel and Yale Real Living locks will help bring a greater range of security options to our customers," said 2GIG co-founder Lance Dean. "The Real Living locks are high-quality, high-end locks that will raise the functionality of the Go!Control panel to another level."

"2GIG has long been recognized as one of the most reputable players in the security market," said Jason Williams, general manager of Yale Residential. "Our integration with the Go!Control panel dovetails perfectly with Yale's strategy of aligning our Real Living line of locks with the security industry's premier companies."

Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth

The new Yale Real Living™ Assure Lock™ with Bluetooth replaces conventional keys with digital keys accessed through the Yale Digital Keys app for Android and iOS mobile devices, and through an app for the new Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch. The Yale app allows homeowners to unlock doors, send keys to others, control when others have access, get a message when someone enters, and revoke a digital key at any time. Unlocking the deadbolt couldn't be simpler, whether using the Samsung Gear S2 or a smartphone. With the new Samsung Gear S2, touch the watch app to activate the digital key, then touch the lock screen to unlock the deadbolt. With a smartphone, Yale's "Twist and Go" technology allows the user to hold the phone vertically when approaching the door, then twist it 90 degrees to unlock the deadbolt. Homeowners can also unlock the deadbolt using its capacitive touchscreen and a four- to eight-digit code.
