According to recent research by consultancy IFSEC Global, more than 90 percent of security system installers view home automation as a significant growth market. Verisure, Europe’s leading alarm monitoring company, offers more than just protection against intruders. Its growing smart security solution includes climate control, fire brigade integration, energy, insurance, and more—all within a single integrated platform. Now available in Scandinavia, they have added seamless door control with the Yale Doorman smart door lock from ASSA ABLOY.
When planning the integration with their home automation ecosystem, Verisure sought a smart lock to meet both Finnish and Scandinavian door and lock standards; the option of single-point and multipoint locking; and a device easy to retrofit to homes in these markets.
They needed a smart door lock to be operated from the same control panel as other Verisure devices, which includes powerful tools to control home security from an Apple iOS or Android smartphone.
Verisure selected the Yale Doorman lock from ASSA ABLOY, a high-quality retrofit solution for Finnish and Scandinavian residences. The Yale Doorman offers Ingress Protection 55 (IP55) weather resistance and easy operation by PIN code, proximity card, remote controller, or smartphone app. Once fitted, the Yale Doorman communicates with a Verisure system via an encrypted, proprietary wireless radio protocol.
Homeowners can issue personal unlock codes for long-term use by residents; short-term codes for daily or one-time unlocking; and scheduled, time-controlled codes for use by regular, occasional visitors—so it’s easy to admit a cleaner, carer, or cat-sitter at scheduled times only.
“Being able to switch off the alarm when unlocking and locking also creates a seamless experience,” says Fredrik Ringborg, sales development manager and head of alliances at Verisure.
Connected home integration boosts security
ASSA ABLOY’s integration with Verisure enables full control of the Yale Doorman from a smartphone. Residents can lock and unlock their door using the Verisure app and simultaneously check alarm and door status from anywhere. The same mobile app can generate an audit trail—to verify who has entered and when—and homeowners can schedule notifications when specific users (for example, their children or carer) enter the home.
“This integration significantly boosts domestic security for Verisure users,” says Omer Sagi, director business development smart door locks at ASSA ABLOY EMEA. “An armed Verisure system will also check whether the Yale Doorman is locked at night—and locks it automatically if it is not.”
With Verisure security and the Yale Doorman smart door lock, peace of mind, keyless living, security, and convenience come in a single package.
Europe’s largest connected alarm provider has approximately 2.6 million customers in 14 countries across Europe and South America, with 490,000 of those in Scandinavia. Visit them at www.verisure.com.
