Melville, New York, April 8, 2013 – HAI by Leviton announced today that Yale Real Living™ has been added as a Connectivity Partner, allowing two-way integration with Yale’s ZigBee and Z-Wave wireless door locks. A live integration will be showcased at the International Security Conference in Las Vegas, NV, April 10-12, 2013, in Booth #20126.
With the integration of Yale Real Living into an HAI by Leviton system, homeowners can monitor the status of locks and even lock or unlock doors remotely, without having to make copies of their keys. Users gain the ability to lock and unlock up to 16 doors from HAI by Leviton’s Ethernet Touchscreens, key fobs and remotely via mobile Apple and Android devices. The systems allow users to use the lock as a trigger for other scenes or events in the home, including automatically setting lighting, music and temperature based on the locked or unlocked status of the door. Homeowners can also learn who accessed the door all by code.
“Yale Real Living residential access control locks integrate seamlessly into the HAI by Leviton security and automation control systems,” said Jay McLellan, president of HAI by Leviton. “With our systems, not only can the door be unlocked remotely for a contractor or maid, but a surveillance camera could be viewed beforehand to ensure the proper person is at the doorway.”
Available in deadbolt and lever locks with either a sleek capacitive touch screen or push button key pad, the locks feature all metal construction, fully gasketed installation and an industry-exclusive capacitive touchscreen available on Zigbee locks.
The door lock integrations are compatible with all Ethernet-enabled HAI by Leviton Omni and Lumina automation controllers, including Omni Pro II, Omni IIe, Omni LTe, Lumina Pro, and Lumina, utilizing firmware version 3.14 or later. The Z-Wave integration requires a Leviton RF+3 Serial Interface Module (Leviton Part Number: VRC0P). The ZigBee integration requires usage of HAI’s Zigbee Interface Module (HAI Part Number: 81A00-3ZB), running firmware 14.08 or later.
The HAI by Leviton and Yale Real Living integration is available now. A high resolution photo of a Yale lock with an HAI by Leviton automation system can be downloaded here: http://www.homeauto.com/mediacenter/HaiPRImage.asp?image=OmniYaleCollage.jpg
