"We're delighted to partner with Xfinity Home and have our Assure Lock
line play a critical role securing front doors across the country," said
Jason Williams, President, ASSA ABLOY U.S. Residential Group, which
includes Yale Residential. "Xfinity Home customers can now connect an
Assure Lock that's right for them and control access and secure their
homes from the Xfinity Home mobile app."

The Yale
Assure Lock
line is an extensive series of smart locks that offers
homeowners the choice of key-free or keyed locks in both touchscreen and
pushbutton versions, all in a choice of three finishes to complement any
home. Four compatible
Assure Locks with a Zigbee Network Module
(available for purchase
separately or with the lock) can be added to the Xfinity Home mobile
app. Xfinity Home customers who already own a compatible Assure Lock can
purchase a Yale Zigbee Network Module separately and easily add the
device onto the Xfinity platform.

When Yale's smart lock is integrated into an Xfinity Home system, the
door locks can be controlled and monitored from anywhere using the
Xfinity Home mobile app (iOS
or Android).
Users can remotely lock and unlock doors, check lock status, and create
rules such as receive a notification if the door is unlocked after 8:30
p.m. Additionally, Xfinity Home customers with the award-winning X1
voice remote
can say, "Lock the front door" to lock their compatible
Yale Assure Lock.

"Smart door locks can be a meaningful home security addition, especially
when combined with other IoT devices like cameras," said Patti Loyack,
vice president, IP services, and home automation, for Comcast Cable.
"Xfinity's platform gives consumers the ability to manage and control
all of their smart devices in one unified experience and we're excited
to give our customers even more choice by integrating the Assure Lock
line from Yale."

Yale Assure Lock line with Zigbee is now available to Xfinity Home's
more than 1.2 million subscribers through the Works
with Xfinity program
. For more information visit https://www.xfinity.com/learn/home-security/devices/yale-lock.
