Yale Assure smart locks get an enticing upgrade

Sep 1, 2021

This upgrade to Z-Wave 700-series wireless modules is a big deal, but your smart home hub must have the same tech to reap all the benefits. Picked by Techconnect's Editors Yale Home is now offering a Z-Wave 700-series module for its Yale Assure Lock line of smart entry locks. The upgrade will deliver a host of benefits, including longer range and—perhaps more importantly—significantly longer battery life for the lock it’s installed in. Mentioned in this article Yale estimates the new module will deliver 20-percent longer battery life and a 46-percent improvement in connectivity range. The new chip also includes the newer Z-Wave S2 security framework, which strengthens Z-Wave networks against hackers. Because the Assure line’s connectivity comes in the form of swappable modules, any Assure lock can be converted from one wireless technology to another. For example, if the lock you purchased was outfitted with a Zigbee radio, you’ll be able remove that module and replace it with this new Z-Wave one. There's a significant catch, however: To realize the increased range and improved battery life, the smart home hub that your upgraded Assure lock connects to must also be outfitted with a Z-Wave 700-series chip. You’ll still be able to connect the lock to the older hub, and you’ll still benefit from the S2 security framework (provided the hub’s manufacturer has provided an over-the-air update, which shouldn’t be a problem since S2 came to market in 2017), but the range and battery-life improvements depend on having Z-Wave 700-series chips at both ends of the connection. Initially, the Z-Wave 700 module will be available only when bundled with a new Yale Assure lock, but the company plans to also offer it as a stand-alone upgrade to existing Assure locks, as it does now with the previous-generation Z-Wave chip. Those sell for $49 at Yale’s website , and a Yale spokesperson said consumers can expect the new module to be priced similarly.
