The Yale YRD246 Assure Lock with iM1 HomeKit Module is a smart lock that works with Apple HomeKit. A user can control the lock from anywhere using voice commands sent through Siri. This requires the use of a HomeKit Hub, such as an Apple TV or iPad. The device replaces a standard door lock.

The features for the YRD246 make it one of the most versatile and reliable locks available on the market today. It meets Grade 2 Deadbolt Operational and Security Standards, which helps to ensure the lock will provide trustworthy protection for the home or business. A user can enter codes into the lock's touchscreen keypad to lock or unlock the device. By pairing it with HomeKit, up to 250 codes (between four and eight digits) can be used with the lock. The device is paired with HomeKit using the Yale Secure App.

Integrating the lock with HomeKit is essential for getting the most out of the device. By using their iOS device, the user can control the lock from anywhere with Siri voice commands. The user can also receive device notifications, create customized lock settings and check the current lock status at any time. This makes the lock great for owners of the Honeywell Lyirc Controller, which is one of the best HomeKit-compatible systems available on the market today. Other features for the YRD246 include a weather-protection gasket, one-touch locking functionality, backlit numbers, a privacy button and a tamper-resistant battery cover.

The Yale YRD246 is a smart lock that works with Apple HomeKit. Yale is known for their high-quality lock products, and the YRD246 is no exception. It is a visually pleasing lock that offers the security and protection you need. And being able to integrate it with Apple HomeKit is a big plus for iOS users. Overall, we really like Yale YRD246, and we give it a 5 Star rating.

There are many things to appreciate about the Yale YRD246. The biggest benefit is its compatibility with HomeKit. By setting up a HomeKit Hub, you will be able to control your Yale YRD246 from anywhere in the world using Siri voice commands. And if you get the Honeywell Lyric Alarm System, you will be able to integrate that with your HomeKit network as well. The touchscreen keypad of the YRD246 is certainly sleek, and it fits almost any modern decor. You can store up to 250 codes inside the keypad, which makes it great for offices. The lock is Grade 2, meaning it will keep any compatible door nice and secure. And the lock is loaded with nice features like a weather-protection gasket, one-touch locking, backlit numbers, a privacy button, and a tamper-resistant battery cover.

There are some downsides to the Yale YRD246. Like any door lock, it will need to be installed. This may be a difficult task for DIYers who are not used to working with tools. But really, the installation process isn't that bad. Since this is not a Z-Wave lock, it cannot be paired with most security systems. It also will not work with Total Connect 2.0 or Alarm.com. If you are looking for a lock to pair with a security system being used as an automation hub, then you will probably want to look for a Z-Wave model instead. This lock is mostly for users who are building around the HomeKit network. But if that is your intention, then the Yale YRD246 will make for a great addition to your HomeKit network. With that in mind, we give the Yale YRD246 a 5 Star rating.

Good: HomeKit, Touchscreen, Sleek Design, 250 Codes, Grade 2 Security, Lots of Features
