Yale launches Linus Smart Lock

Issue 1 2021 Access Control & Identity Management

Yale has launched Linus, a keyless door lock designed to secure homes. The new Linus Smart Lock allows users to lock and unlock their door no matter where they are. Powered by advanced software and the intuitive Yale Access mobile app, Linus allows for keyless entry and gives its users the ability to see who comes and when, grant virtual guest keys, and check whether the door is open or closed.

The smart lock connects with leading smart home systems, voice assistants and home share platforms for effortless door control and access management.

Designed with a stunning brushed metal finish, and in a choice of silver or black, the smart lock delivers added functionalities and ease of use, while still fitting stylish and modern homes.

For example, the auto-lock functionality can automatically lock the door when you leave for the day, either immediately after closing or after a set amount of time via the Yale Access mobile app. When you return home and walk up to your door, auto-lock will unlock it again thanks to geo-fencing, eliminating the need to fumble around with keys.

If you have any doubt whether the door is locked or not, you can check the status of the door any time via the Yale Access app. Linus also features DoorSense technology which will tell you whether the door is closed or if anything unexpected happens, like it being left ajar.


The Yale Access mobile app itself lets users access and control their smart lock remotely with a single touch of a button on their smartphone. Simply connect it to the Yale Connect Wi-Fi Bridge to share access with trusted guests, view activity, receive notifications or lock and unlock the door from anywhere in the world.

Linus offers consumers the added flexibility of a smartphone or Apple Watch, becoming a key with a simple tap to lock or unlock the door. Forgot your phone? Type a PIN code into the Yale Smart Keypad to unlock it with just one touch.

As part of the Yale Access ecosystem, Linus works with other products in the range, including the Yale Smart Safes, Smart Cabinet Locks and Smart Alarms. For more convenience, the smart alarms will automatically be disarmed when the lock is unlocked through the Yale Access system.
