Yale Real Living Joins Partners at CES 2014 To Demonstrate Innovative, Feature-Rich Intelligent Locks

LAS VEGAS, January 7, 2014 -- Underscoring its commitment to access control for today's digital home, Yale Locks & Hardware is at International CES demonstrating its advanced line of Yale Real Living™ intelligent locks, now compatible with a wider range of smart home platforms and systems than ever before.

The Yale Real Living line of residential electronic locks combines a wide range of features with a high level of flexibility, which is why every major home automation supplier includes Yale among its product offerings.

Among the home automation companies demonstrating Yale locks at CES are Echostar, HAI/Leviton, iControl, Revolv and Zonoff. In addition, Yale has its own exhibit with the Z-Wave Alliance (South Hall 1 - 20800).

The Yale Real Living line features touchscreen and push button locks that work with a wide variety of wireless home control systems. The most recent addition to the line is the Yale Real Living Key Free Touchscreen Deadbolt, which eliminates the cylinder and as a result offers homeowners superior security and dealers simplified installation. A feature-by-feature comparison shows that the product offers a high level of convenience and security when compared to other digital locks. As a consequence, home automation systems providers can offer their customers peace of mind and locks that integrate seamlessly with other devices to create a truly connected home.

"We're proud to say that Yale has been chosen by the top home automation system suppliers in the industry, and we believe that's because of the flexibility our product line provides, our extensive feature set and the support we deliver to each of our partners," said Jason Williams, General Manager of Yale Residential.

The Yale Real Living product line was built to meet the home automation market's need for technically advanced and aesthetically pleasing products that are secure, convenient and that easily integrate with each system. Yale Real Living locks enable homeowners to lock/unlock doors remotely, set schedules and personalize access to their home. With most systems, when the door is locked/unlocked, the system can simultaneously turn lights on/off, adjust shades and temperature, and set the alarm. Homeowners can also give access to individuals every day or create a schedule to allow guests to enter and exit the home on certain days. Each family member and guest receives a unique pin, so the homeowner can monitor system activity. The system can also monitor battery status and alarm status.
