Been looking for a half decent price on this lock, normally £200 most places, but with the code it's taking it down to £179.10 which is a nice saving

Thanks OP

My two cents, having done lots of research to upgrading to smart locks, is that apart from the Yale Conexis there is no other option atm in the UK.

Alternative are the Yale keypads or from another company, but they should be used as secondary locks.

IMO it is better to wait another 6 months to 12 months to see what new smart locks are launched in the UK. There's alot of good options in the US, and inevitably some will make it over or there will be a homegrown copycat.

Yale has a smart lock called Keyfree connected with physical keys, which is now disappeared from their website. It's far too expensive consider the limited functionality it provides and how difficult the software is to use.

There are plenty international competitors including major brands likes Samsung, which come with biometric/fingerprint scanner, password, fob and software/remote authentication, at a much reasonable price. It's just they don't fit on UPVC doors, which is a shame.

Thanks for the deal op.I have to say that this smart lock really should …Thanks for the deal op.I have to say that this smart lock really should have physical key access as a backup. A mix of both a basic door lock and a smart lock. What if the door lock fails? A backup would be sensible.I'm all for a smart home but don't think i would use a smart lock just yet. My smartthings can sometimes go down (sensors mainly so not serious). Reliability on smart home products aren't 100% (for me anyway).I know this Yale lock doesn't have Echo or Google Home support. But if you're looking to buy a smartlock that has support for either then make sure you can't activate the lock outside by using your voice. For example, don't have the echo or home sitting beside an open window.Sorry for rambling on but thought I'd throw in some info.


I agree on the basis of things going down and also there should be some physical way of getting in too. Regarding the Echo support it's there now (with additional stuff) but is working, unsure of Google Home though

Quite like the look of this, but not sure if it would look out of place for my front door:

Should I buy a GSM or not? Is £200 a decent price?



Well I suppose you could hide it and then buy the remote to activate/deactivate it. You would still need to have a power supply and telephone line connected to the box though but you would probably be better off just mounting it on the wall or in a cupboard. As for this or the GSM version I'd definitely chose the GSM and use a GiffGaff sim in it.

Just curious - do these DIY type alarms actually deter burglars?



​My tired eyes read "does it detect burgers"

​As per comment further up you can get a key fob remote (£16 on Amazon) and you can also get an additional wireless keypad if you prefer. So with these yes you could stash the panel under the sofa. There's a tamper switch on it though so you'd just need to keep the backplate attached to it.

bought this just after Xmas easy to install fast delivery

got to wonder why when i posted this exact same deal it got pulled by an administrator saying they didn't have enough feedback on trust pilot but here's the exact same deal

Been wondering about something like this or an ip camera that can send notifications and remote viewing etc...

Yale has a range that connects to your router (possibly only via an ethernet cable) and will email, text and send push notifications (I'm not sure whether the push notifications work on Android - they don't for their IP cameras), they are more expensive than the ones that connect to a land line. This is the basic one... yale.co.uk/en/…10/

Looks a good alarm.
Cheers

I see Yale has now added hub and app connectivity to their alarm systems using the same pirs and bell boxes as on this deal. I wonder if the hub can be added to an already existing tele system...
