In recent years, Yale has managed to gradually specialize in home automation, while building on its initial expertise: home security. The American company now offers a very complete range of smart security products, easy to implement at the heart of the home. Everything is accompanied by a mobile application, Yale Homewhich helps with the simplified management of the home automation ecosystem.

So, in the long term, Yale’s goal seems clear: create an offer accessible to allwhether it concerns the prices of its numerous equipment or their use.

In early April, Yale announced the launch of a completely new model for its flagship product: the Linus L2 connected lock. Already very popular in its initial version, it is therefore being updated, offering even more performance and security at the heart of the smart home.

To date, the supply of connected locks still remains quite limited. Yale is obviously a key player, but it is not the only one to enjoy great success. The direct competitor to its Linus L2 is the Nuki Smart Lock Pro (4th generation), sold at a price of 289 euros.

The new Linus L2 connected lock is available since April 8, 2024 for 229 euros.

In addition to marketing its lock, Yale launched the “Security Made Easy” campaign to raise consumer awareness of connected home security, while taking an educational approach.
