Podcast: Yale smart lock solution for Amazon Key

ASSA ABLOY Group company, Yale Locks & Hardware recently announced that it has teamed up with Amazon on a new service exclusively for Prime members that radically improves the convenience of receiving deliveries. Amazon Key enables in-home delivery and secure home access for guests and service appointments. 

In this podcast from The Marketplace, Jason Williams, President, Residential Group at ASSA ABLOY shares this thoughts on the future of keys as well as the future for Yale.

This podcast was originally published on the website The Marketplace.

To get started with Amazon Key, Prime members need to first purchase and install the Amazon Key In-Home Kit, which consists of a choice of compatible smart locks, including the Yale Assure Lock Touchscreen (YRD226-AZ) and the Amazon Cloud Cam, an intelligent indoor security camera.

Using the Amazon Key app, members can also grant secure access for in-home Amazon deliveries, receive notifications when deliveries are made, watch the delivery happening live or review a video of the delivery after it is complete.
