The Linus Smart Lock
Make your door even smarter with the Yale Linus Smart Lock, designed to secure and simplify your life. Losing your keys is a thing of the past. Unlike a traditional lock, with the Linus Smart Lock you have access to keyless entry, see who’s coming and going in the form of real-time notifications, grant virtual keys and check whether your door is open or closed. Tailored to suit your needs, pair your smart lock with the Yale Smart Keypad to provide easy code entry to your home and one touch when you leave. For extra peace of mind, Doorsense™ lets you know whether your door is securely closed. If anything unexpected were to happen, like the door being left ajar, you will be the first to know. To perform remote functionalities, a Yale Connect Wi-Fi Bridge is needed. All of this is made possible via the Yale Access App (iOS / Android). Once connected to the App, you can secure, monitor and manage access to your home through your smartphone, from anywhere in the world*.
Get full control from the palm of your hand. All you need is your smartphone and with one tap, lock or unlock the door with ease. Send users virtual keys so that friends and family members can gain access to your home, even when you are not around. If someone forgets to lock when they leave, you can take care of it with the tap of a finger. Once they’ve gained access, you can manage who can enter your property by disabling or deleting users through the Yale Access App. For added convenience, the auto-lock feature on this smart door lock will automatically lock your door when you leave for the day, either immediately after closing or after a set amount of time via the Yale Access App.
Add a Yale Connect Wi-Fi Bridge and you can make your Smart Lock even smarter. Thanks to the handy geo-fencing*feature, when you return home and walk up to the door, auto-unlock will automatically unlock the door for you, saving you from having to fumble around for your keys*. Intelligently connected, the Linus Smart Lock works with Apple HomeKit, leading voice assistants Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa, and Philips Hue lighting, combining lights and voice to create the ultimate security deterrent–“Alexa, is my front door locked?”This smart door lock can be integrated with top hosting platforms like Airbnb, so guests can come and go as they wish –and you don’t need to worry about lost keys.
The Yale Access App is protected by 2-factor authentication, meaning that users will be required to verify their identity with either an email or phone number. The Linus Smart Lock uses Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technology encryption, along with AES 128 bit and TLS encryptions. If you ever lose your phone, you can disable your Yale Access App and all virtual keys at any time.
*A Yale Connect Wi-Fi Bridge is required to access these smart features. Product sold separately.
Forget about long-term contracts
When you purchase the LinusSmart Lock, you aren’t tied into any monthly rolling or monitoring fees. This means you have the freedom to set up virtual keys and check the history of your digital door lock, without any additional costs.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is a virtual key?
You can send virtual keys so that friends and family members can gain access to your home, even if you are not around. Once you have granted access to a user, you can manage who can enter your property by disabling or deleting users through the Yale Access App. Virtual keys can be scheduled or made permanent for ultimate control of your home.
How do I know if the Linus Smart Lock is the right lock for my door?
Not every door is compatible with the Linus Smart Lock. The Yale Linus Adjustable Cylinder may be required if your existing cylinder is not compatible.
Is the Linus Smart Lock easy to install?
Easy to install over the existing cylinder on the inside of your front door, the Linus Smart Lock means you can keep and use your original keys. Your front door will look just the same as before from the outside – without revealing any smart features.
What happens if the batteries run flat?
The Yale Access App will notify you in advance if the batteries are running low (when the batteries are at 25%), giving you an opportunity to replace them before they run out of charge. Should the battery completely fun flat, the lock can still be opened using the key and thumb override.
What happens if my internet goes down?
Should your internet connectivity go down, you can still operate your Linus Smart Lock via the App, providing you are standing in front of the door. This is because the smart door lock uses Bluetooth to communicate with your mobile device, so does not solely rely on Wi-Fi connectivity. Alternatively, you can use the key and thumb override to gain access to the property.
The Yale Connect Wi-Fi Bridge is required to access the smart features of this product – wireless entry, real-time notifications, status updates, Philips Hue lighting and compatibility with leading voice assistants.
How do I access my smart door lock remotely?
The Yale Access App will seamlessly connect over the best method available, choosing between Bluetooth and Wi-Fi automatically – providing you have a Yale Connect Wi-Fi Bridge (sold separately). The icon in the upper right of the Yale Access App lock screen indicates how you are currently connected to your lock.
How does Auto-Unlock work?
Auto-Unlock is one of the most popular and unique features for smart lock users. Having your door automatically unlock without having to reach for your phone or your keys as you approach your door is a magical experience. Like any simple and smart technology, there is a lot happening behind the scenes to make Auto-Unlock work just right.
Please note, this feature is only available to lock owners and not guests.
Auto-Unlock relies on a few different technologies in your phone, not only the Yale Access App but also your Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS. These must be enabled in order for Auto-Unlock to work. All of these are regulated by your operating system talking to the Yale Access App. The Yale Access App has two states that determine how Auto-Unlock functions: Home and Away. When you’re at home, your Yale Access App will enter Home Mode and Auto-Unlock will not activate, it’s waiting for you to leave. When the Yale Access App sees you have left your neighbourhood or travelled more than 200 meters from your home, Auto-Unlock will go into Away Mode, until your return home again.
