Editor's Notes

June 03, 2019:

The typical user upgrading to an electronic deadbolt may be interested in all the bells and whistles and functionality this new technology has to offer, but even a technophobe can benefit from a simpler option.

Although there are some concerns about the long-term durability of the remotes that come with the Lock State LS and the Morning Industry RF, we decided to include them because they're a great choice for users who may struggle to see the keypads, and/or don't want to deal with smart technology. Plus the remotes are easily replaceable.

The Yale Assure YRD226 features the a fore-mentioned bells and whistles along with the brand reputation of a company that knows how to make a good deadbolt. Among it's more advanced features this lock will sense your smart phone approaching and unlock for true hands-free convenience.
