Coded entry

The Yale Real Living Touchscreen Deadbolt features an attractive capacitive touchscreen. Tap it with the back of your hand to wake it up, then punch in your code to enter. The lock can store up to 25 unique codes, each between four and eight digits long.

Key entry, too

The Yale has a classic pin-and-tumbler lock, too, so you'll still be able to use a key to get in when the battery dies.

Larger than your average lock

The interior of the Yale takes up a good deal of space on the inside of your door, as it needs to house the lock's circuitry, network adapter, and the four AA batteries that keep it powered.

A connected lock

The Yale Real Living deadbolt comes with either a Z-Wave adapter or a Zigbee adapter, both of which will allow you to integrate it into an existing home automation setup.

Designed for your decor

Worth the price?

With an MSRP of $275, the Yale Real Living deadbolt doesn't come cheap. You can get it a little cheaper on Amazon, or by downgrading to a model that doesn't include a network adapter and/or touch screen.
