Smart door locks in action
Residential service providers across Europe—including telecoms companies, domestic utilities, smart-home specialists, home care providers, rental agencies, and more—have already integrated Yale smart door locks to build better services for their customers.
In Sweden, customers of PostNord no longer need to wait in for a postal delivery. They can have parcels delivered inside their front door, if it is equipped with a smart door lock. The new service works via a single-use PIN code issued automatically to an authorised PostNord driver.
In Turkey, around 1,700 Yale smart door locks are being installed at Future Park, a new development where apartments are built around home automation. Residential technology specialists Aypro designed an app-powered system for residents and integrated our lock.

Locks are integrated with the SCLAK app-powered access system, making it much easier for guests to enjoy their stay without key hassles. And now, Home by Hotel can more easily deliver value-added services, including grocery shopping and extra cleaning on demand.
