The Yale Assure SL has a sleek design and a bunch of different options for smart home integrations. If you want something that looks great on your door and lets you kiss your keys goodbye, then this lock is a good choice. Just expect to pay more for accessories.
Features: The Yale Assure SL has a touchscreen-only design that lets you get rid of your door keys. It also includes standard smart lock features, like guest access codes.
Pricing: The base price for the Yale Assure SL is reasonable, but you’ll need to buy a few accessories that will jack up the price. If you want any smart home features at all, you’ll need to buy an additional module.
Home automation: The Yale Assure SL has a few different module options for smart home integrations, including Z-Wave Plug, Zigbee, and HomeKit. You can only choose one, so we recommend going with the August Connect module. You get better smart home support with that one than you do with the others.
Installation: The Yale Assure SL replaces your entire deadbolt mechanism, so installation can seem a bit tricky. But you should be able to get the lock up and running in around 30 minutes.
