At GearBrain, we have tested many of Yale Home’s smart locks and smart storage devices, like the Yale Smart Delivery Box and Yale Cabinet Lock. Today, the company announced it is expanding its smart storage product line by adding the first smart safe lock, Yale Smart Safe. This new lock comes in two versions, Yale Smart Safe and Yale Smart Safe with Wi-Fi. Both of these locks are a perfect extension to the company’s existing line of smart locks and they will help users protect valuable items including jewelry, important documents, collectibles, and more. This smart lock will also be controlled by the Yale Access app which will make it easy for users who have more than one Yale smart lock.

"We're delighted to launch the Smart Safe and bring Yale’s trusted smart home security and convenience to your most treasured belongings,” said Jason Williams, President of U.S. Smart Residential at ASSA ABLOY. “By building on our Smart Storage line of products, we are continuing to deliver on our commitment to protect what matters most in and around your home.”

The Smart Safe works out of the box with Bluetooth, allowing customers to control and monitor the safe from their phone within range. Apple HomeKit technology is also built-in, ideal for Apple Home customers with the appropriate Apple Home hub, such as a HomePod, HomePod Mini, or Apple TV. The Smart Safe with Wi-Fi comes with a Yale Connect Wi-Fi Bridge in the box, letting customers unlock the safe from anywhere using the Yale Access app. Additionally, the Wi-Fi-enabled safe can be controlled with popular voice assistants including Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri. Customers can ask their voice assistant to check the status of the safe and unlock it for hands-free control. Both models let customers share and manage access to the safe with trusted friends and family, convenient for when the primary user is away.

Built with security top of mind, the Smart Safe is made of steel and provides a robust set of security features including an anti-pry laser-cut door, two anti-saw bolts, and alarms that will sound with tampering or multiple incorrect attempts to enter the code. Additional security features include two-layer encryption, two-factor authentication, and a feature to disable the safe to keep it secure if the user loses their phone. For even more security, users can set up Verified Access to require biometric verification when unlocking the safe with the Yale Access app.
