Ring partners with Yale and AugustYale at CES 2019
"We're excited to partner with Yale and August to offer this integration to our customers so they can build a home security system that's right for their needs."
By integrating all Yale Real Living Locks (equipped with a Yale Z-Wave Plus Smart Module) and August Smart Lock Pro locks with Ring Alarm, customers will be able to disarm their Ring Alarm security system by unlocking their lock. Alternatively, customers will have the ability to have their Ring Alarm system armed by locking their Yale (and soon, August) lock."
"With so many varying products within the smart home, it's absolutely critical that they speak to one another to provide consumers with a simplified and cohesive experience," said Jason Williams, President of Yale's Residential Group. "Through this integration with Ring, Yale and August customers will be able to benefit from a fully connected access system where our smart locks will be in sync with the other products keeping their home safe and secure.
Connecting Yale Real Living Locks with Z-Wave and August Smart Lock Pro locks to Ring Alarm will enable customers to manage, monitor, and control access to their homes through one central, secure mobile app. The process of locking and unlocking your door, monitoring who's at your door and disarming your security system has never been easier to manage. The Ring app will also allow users to check the lock's battery and view recent activity. Whether you're a working parent who wants to make sure your kids get home safely after school, a young professional who needs to let the dog walker in, or a vacation rental manager in charge of multiple properties and guests, Yale and August's collaborations with Ring Alarm will greatly simplify your life where the front door is concerned. Yale and August will continue to expand their integrations with Ring to offer more comprehensive access control in the future.
"We're excited to partner with Yale and August to offer this integration to our customers so they can build a home security system that's right for their needs," said Jamie Siminoff, Founder and Chief Inventor of Ring. "We only consider integrations that will enhance the customer's overall home security, and the integration with Yale Z-Wave and August provides just that.
