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.
