Yale is cementing its place as the go-to smart lock for security systems, with the launch of a new line specifically designed for professionally installed security systems.

Available now and compatible with ADT, Resideo by Honeywell, Alarm.com, Qolsys, AT&T, and Ring Alarm, the Yale Pro SL smart lock line will now be top of the option list for pretty much any pro-install smart home security system you might choose. The only big name not here is Comcast Xfinity (although Yale's Zigbee locks work with Xfinity).

A Z-Wave Plus powered lock, the Pro SL is essentially the popular Assure keypad lock, a keyless touchscreen smart lock, tweaked to fit the pro-install security market. And it's just Yale's first step in this direction – the company says it has more products coming.

The lock works by touching the Yale logo and entering a pin, and locks with a touch of the logo, making for simple entry and exit. Remote control works when paired with a compatible smart home security system, and is controlled by that system's app - powered by Z-Wave Plus (500 series tech.)

High-level security is built into this smart lock, which unlike a standard deadbolt, has no cylinder to pick. While it's battery powered, the lock features Yale's handy trick for charging a dead lock when you're on the wrong side - a 9V battery back-up charger located below the keypad, which can temporarily power the lock.

As smart home and home security systems continue on their path to becoming one system, Yale - owned by Assa Abloy, which also owns August, a smart lock and video doorbell company - is definitely one to watch in this space.
