Yale Z-Wave Door Locks Integration Release Notes

Preface

For information on Z-Wave and ClareHome, see Installing Z-Wave with ClareHome Tech Bulletin (DOC ID 1162).

Notes

  • When installing Z-Wave devices, ensure that there is nothing inhibiting their signal. Z-Wave relies on radio signals. Metal or thick walls may limit their signal strength.
  • We recommend having 2 or more repeating Z-Wave devices that support beaming.

Introduction

Yale Z-Wave door locks integrate with ClareHome via the Z-Wave network. Installers only need to pair (add) the unit into the ClareHome. The locks provide real time lock status indications.

By integrating a Yale door lock into the ClareHome control system, your customers can control the door lock from their Android or iOS devices.

Installing and programming Yale door locks

Only qualified installation technicians should install Yale door locks. Follow the installation and programming instructions that came with your Yale equipment. We recommend that you pair the lock with the ClareHome Z-Wave controller before installing it in the door.

Notes

  • You must be within 6 feet of the controller for the lock to pair.
  • The door lock is configurable using the ClareHome app, the Clare Controls Install Assist app, and Fusion.
