Yale has announced the release of a new 'Assure Lock 2 Touch', its first fingerprint smart lock; as well as, 'Assure Lock 2 Plus', its first smart lock with Apple Home Key support. Home Key support makes it easy to unlock your door with the tap of an iPhone or Apple Watch.

"We take pride in Yale's legacy of offering high-quality security products that our customers have trusted for more than 183 years – and these new smart locks are no exception," said Garrett Lovejoy, Vice President of Product, Yale and August U.S. "With these additions to our best-selling Assure Lock 2 collection, we are delivering products that simplify access for the everyday household – whether through our new fingerprint-powered smart lock or our first-ever device that supports Apple home keys. With more ways to access and protect your home, you can come and go with peace of mind."

Assure Lock 2 Touch
Providing even more ways to go keyless, Assure Lock 2 Touch is Yale's first-ever smart lock with a built-in fingerprint reader, with the ability to register up to 20 different fingerprints. Users simply place their finger on the Yale logo to lock and unlock the door, adding to the many other ways to access the home — from using the touchscreen, the Yale Access app, asking a voice assistant, leveraging Auto-Lock and Auto-Unlock, or sticking with a traditional key as a backup (with keyed models). With more ways to lock and unlock than ever before, users can keep their homes secure on their terms.

Another first for the brand, Assure Lock 2 Plus supports Apple home keys, allowing users to simply tap to unlock the door using a compatible iPhone or Apple Watch for easy and secure access to their home. All other users that share the Apple Home app will have a home key added to their Wallet as well. Home keys can still be used on iPhone for hours after it needs to be charged with power reserve, and on Apple Watch with Low Power Mode.
