Smart devices make certain tasks a whole lot simpler. Smart locks help us keep our homes secure while providing the convenience of keyless entry. They are much more difficult to tamper with than traditional locks, which have keys that can easily be duplicated and locks that can be picked. You also won’t have to dig through your bag and pockets for a key. As part of its Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, Amazon is offering $52 worth of savings on the Nest X Yale Lock, which is available for only $219 instead of $270. (Amazon also has Black Friday deals on Google Nest cameras.)
When it comes to home security, Nest and Yale are both prominent names, and they’ve come together to give you a keyless deadbolt that can be unlocked with your smartphone or a unique pass code. When you’re expecting visitors or the occasional delivery man, you’ll be able to let them in even when you aren’t home.
As far as installation goes, you might not find the need to call for your local handyman, but our review notes that it could entail a lot of patience depending on your level of expertise.There’s no need to worry about wiring since it’s powered by four AA batteries.
Like most products from Nest, it flaunts a streamlined design and a look consistent with newer devices from Yale. A touchscreen keypad replaces the traditional lock-and-key system. Pressing the “Yale” logo illuminates the number pad, and “one-touch locking”can be enabled.
The Next X Yale lock comes with the Nest Connect module that allows it to connect to Wi-Fi. It’s also compatible with any device that has Google Assistant. With the integration of voice commands, you’ll instantly be able to save yourself a trip to the door. You can also count on the Nest secure alarm system to alert you in the event of a potential intrusion. Smart Locks no doubt make for a good first level of defense, and Amazon’s sale let’s you have just that, along with some peace of mind, for just $219.
