I currently have a Schlage Connect door lock on our front door which is working well, and I'd like to install a new lock on our back door. I'm considering the Yale Assure SL Zigbee lock because it looks good, has a touch screen, is keyless, and is newer than my Schlage lock. However, I've read many negative reviews regarding this lock failing after 1 year on Amazon which is worrying me.
Does anyone have this lock and can comment on it? Also, any recommendations for other similar touch screen locks with zigbee that works with Hubitat?
I hope I'm general audience - I have nothing but good things to say about both my Yale zigbee locks.
They work perfectly with Lock Code Manager. They work perfectly with voice control via Alexa. And no automation events have ever missed. Both physical and digital events are reported - making it possible to use Node-RED (for example) to perform distinct automations based on physical v/s digital events.
Also battery life is reported regularly (and is seemingly accurate).
Agree! I have a YRD256 - replaced the Z-Wave module with Zigbee after earlier difficulties and have not experienced any issues so far - it's been like 2 years or so. The nice thing about the Zigbee module is it's fast and I believe security is part of the protocol so pairing is not "complicated" . Also like the look of it too..
