    How do I change the battery in my window sensor?

    To change the batteries, turn each compartment lid anti-clockwise, and remove the battery. Insert the new battery with the + facing upwards and replace the lid, turning it clockwise to lock it in place.

    When removing and replacing the lid you may need to use a firm object to help you turn it, please be careful not to damage the water seal.”

    How will the system notify me of low batteries?

    The hub will give an amber warning light, whilst the app will tell you which device has a low battery. You will also hear an intermittent beep from the hub to indicate that action is required. If you do not have batteries to hand and want to stop the hub beeping, you can set the low battery accessory into bypass mode in the app to silence this whilst you obtain the batteries you need. Please note this device will not detect any activity whilst in bypass mode, so this should be a short term solution. Once the batteries have been changed, the device can be made active again (and bypass mode turned off).

    How do I arm and disarm the alarm from the Yale Alarm app?

    You can arm and disarm the alarm using a keypad, key fob, or using the controls in the app. In the app tap on the My Yale page, tap on the house icon to open the alarm controls.

    My app is showing battery missing / dead – what does this mean?

    This is because the backup battery is switched off. Please turn on the back up battery under the white rubber grommet.

    Why does my hub Chime/Ping when the door/window opens?

    The Panel Chime setting in the sensor settings (Settings->Alarm Settings->Devices) turns on a chime that is played whenever the sensor detects the door/window opening.

    What are geo-notifications?

    When you enable geo-notifications the app will send you a notification when you leave home without arming the alarm or when you arrive home and the alarm is armed.

    How do I turn of the Chime/Ping Noise?

    You can disable the Panel Chime in the sensor settings, in Settings->Alarm Settings->Devices.

    What happens if the Internet goes down?

    The alarm will remain in the state it was before the Internet went down. The communication between your hub and devices is on a wireless frequency that does not rely on an internet connection, so the system will continue to operate as normal, however you would need to arm or disarm your system via a physical accessory such as a keypad or key fob until the internet connection is re-established.

    Please note that without an internet connection to your Hub, you will not be able to operate the alarm via the App.
