The Yale YRBB-MD-CB1K-GRY Smart Delivery Box with Smart Keypad will thwart package thieves, providing peace of mind to homeowners. With the Yale Smart Delivery Box, deliveries can be held safely, locked away until you can retrieve them. Everything from parcels to food deliveries can be stashed safely in the Smart Delivery Box.
During setup, the Yale Smart Delivery Box can be weighted with sand, or a concrete block, and can also be tethered to the house, porch, or railing to prevent its removal. The Smart Deliver Box comes with the Yale Connect WIFI Bridge. The bridge is joined to the WIFI network, then connects to the lock via Bluetooth wireless. Once everything is installed, the lock can be controlled through the Yale Access App. Through the app, you can be notified when deliveries occur. You can also lock and unlock the box. The lock can even be controlled using Amazon Alexa, Siri, or Google Home Assistant.
Alarm Grid is offering the Yale Smart Delivery Box in the Kent style and Manor Gray color. This version of the product includes the optional Yale Smart Keypad. The Smart Keypad allows you to provide individual unlocking codes to delivery personnel so that they can open the box to deposit items. It also allows you to unlock the box locally, in case you don't have your phone handy to use the app. If you don't need the Yale Smart Keypad, then you should check out the Yale YRBB-MD-CB1-GRY, which is the same product, but without the Smart Keypad.
Installation of the Yale Smart Delivery Box is simple. Set the box in the intended spot. Make sure it can sit flat and level. It is recommended that you use a 50 Lb. (22kg) bag of sand to weigh down the box. This can usually be found in pool supply stores, or in places that sell landscaping materials. Leave the sand inside the bag and place it in the bottom of the Smart Delivery Box. Be sure that the sand is pressed out flat, then insert the floor tray provided with the box. Be sure the floor tray sits level. If you prefer not to use sand, you can also use a 30 Lb. (13.6kg) concrete block installed at the bottom of the box. If you choose this weighting method, be sure to center the block before placing the floor tray. This will prevent the box floor from tipping when packages are added. The tether to attach the Smart Delivery Box to the home, porch, or railing is sold separately. Refer to the installation instructions for how to obtain one.
Once the box itself has been installed, you'll install the Yale Smart Lock. This comes in two (2) parts, the lock bracket and the lock. Swing open the bracket lever, snap the Yale Smart Lock into place, then swing the bracket lever closed. Now check the lock alignment by gently closing the lid. This will allow you to verify that the lock post at the top of the Smart Delivery Box lines up correctly with the lock itself and that it slides into place smoothly. It is possible that during shipping the box may be jostled, and the lock post may move out of proper position. If this is the case, use the included T-15 Torx Bit to loosen the lock post bracket from the outside top of the lid. Reposition the post while gently closing the lid until it closes smoothly, then retighten the lock post bracket. The included Yale logo plate will then snap into place on top of the lock post bracket.
The Yale Connect WIFI Bridge should be plugged into an outlet inside the home, within 15' (4.5m) of the Yale Smart Delivery Box. Be sure to download the Yale Access App from the iOS or Google app store. Create an account, if necessary. If you happen to have an August lock and use the August App, you can use the same credentials for the Yale Access App. You'll use the app to set up the Yale Connect WIFI Bridge. The Bridge can only use 2.4 GHz WIFI, so be sure your smart device is connected to a 2.4 GHz network. Go through the steps displayed in the app to set up the WIFI Bridge. During the setup, good signal levels for both WIFI and Bluetooth will be verified.
