Yale Locks Brings High Tech to the Common Door

Posted by Alan at 11:39 AM on February 26, 2012

Yale has new home door locks that bring a high-tech flare to your house.  These aren’t your average doorsets – they have touch-screens and smartphone apps.  You can buy the locks alone from many retailers, like Amazon,  however, they are big with custom installers of home security systems. Now they have introduced NFC (near field communication) to their locks.  That means you don’t need a key or a code.  Your phone alone can unlock the door just by being close to it.  If you are worried about your phone being lost or stolen then you can set up a secondary line of security such as a pass code.  You can also revoke a mobile key via the web site if a phone gets lost.  In addition, you can assign a separate code to each person in your home and even have the lock send you a text when someone passes through the door.  Yale Locks are available on the market today, and the ones with NFC technology will be arriving soon.  Prices and availability have not yet been determined.

You can find out more at Yale. Interview by Todd Cochrane of Geek News Central for the TechPodcast Network.
