Alongside the Yale Linus Smart Lock, which was revealed with the new August Wi-Fi Smart Lock, Yale also used CES to reveal a few more smart security solutions; most notably the Yale Smart Delivery Box, which wants to make porch theft a thing of the past.

It's a simple idea really, the box contains Yale's new $229 Smart Cabinet Lock (which will also go on sale separately) and is, by default, unlocked. Once a delivery driver opens the box to place something in, it automatically locks, keeping your goodies safe inside.

You can unlock the box using Bluetooth on your phone when you get home, via the app, or - if you pay $50 more for the Yale Connect Wi-Fi Bridge - you can remotely access it and unlock/lock for additional deliveries. There's also an option to get the Delivery Box with the Bridge and a cooler bag for $299.

As mentioned, the Cabinet Lock can be bought on its own ($79, or $129 with the Bridge) and used inside drawers or cupboards that you want to smartly lock. The Lock contains a panic button, which is obviously intended to be used by a kid who manages to lock themself inside a box or wardrobe.

Finally, there's the new Yale Smart Safe, which can be placed anywhere or mounted to the floor or wall. It can be unlocked using a pin, or using the Yale Access app if connected to the Bridge. It's $229, or $279 with the Bridge.
