Yale Assure Bluetooth Smart Lock Review

Yale has a unique sales pitch for the Yale Assure Smart Lock, “A Lock Without A Key”. May not sound like much, but the slogan appears to be effective, because the lock is a competitive force in the Smart Home market. The lock features a Bluetooth radio and companion app, without a mechanical keyhole.

The great thing about the design of this lock is it eliminates the potential break-in, utilizing a bump key or lock pick. However, the keyless lock without a keyhole eliminates an additional emergency access option, in the event that the onboard batteries fail. With the Assure Smart Lock, you will be left with only two access options, the companion app and touchpad.
