  • PDF

Yale announces the iM1 Network Module-- the means for customers to add Apple Homekit support to Assure Lock products-- is finally available, following months of delay.

Yale HomeKitThe iM1 is an add-on module for a pair of Yale products, the Assure Lock SL (YRD256) and the Assure Lock Key Free Touchscreen (YRD246). It pairs with the Yale Secure companion app to allow customers check battery status, manage up to 25 PIN codes, see current lock status, customise lock settings, name a lock or add a new lock.

HomeKit capability also provides Siri voice commands (such as "Hey Siri, lock my front door"), and allows the addition of a Yale smart lock to a home automaton scene. However use requires a 4th gen Apple TV or iPad with iOS 10.3 or later acting as a home hub.

The iM1 module is available on either a standalone basis or packaged with the two compatible smart locks.
