Yale’s New Integration with Philips Hue Delivers Smarter Home Access:Light Your Way As You Arrive Home, and Leave Worry-Free

Have you always dreamed of arriving home to an entryway that lights up when you unlock the door, making you immediately feel secure and welcome? Or have you simply been searching for a life hack that will help you remember to turn the lights off when you leave the house, so your electricity bill isn’t through the roof each month? If so, we have somegood news for you! At Yale, we are committed to the continuous improvement of our products and excited to introduce brand new features, just in time for the recent Linus® launch!

With door locks and lights playing such integral roles in our homes, it makes perfect sense to manage them together! Thanks to the new integration of our new Linus®Smart Lock and the Philips Hue smart lighting system, you will be able to do just that, as well as benefit from additional functionalities.

Aimed at those who are interested in the security and convenience that smart home automation can bring to their lives, this integration follows our existing collaboration with Philips Hue in Europe, Middle East and Africa. Thanks to which our Sync Smart and SR alarms already integrate with Philip Hue smart lights from Signify. Combining light and sound to create the ultimate double deterrent, the integration with Philips Hue smart lights from Signify discourages would-be burglars whilst giving homeowners visual reassurance that their home is protected.

“As a leader in smart lighting, we’re continuously making Philips Hue even more connected to smart homes. Therefore, we have a strong eco-system of partners and ‘Friends of Hue’, like Yale,” says Jasper Vervoort, Business Leader Philips Hue at Signify. “Together with Yale, we help to provide consumers with safety and peace of mind, combining the benefits of smart locks and smart lighting.”

Now, the integration with Linus® will provide you with even more peace of mind, knowing your home is safe -whether you’re there or not, and bring magic to how you experience everyday tasks with a truly customized, smart home experience.

As long as you have the Linus®Smart Lock installed on your front door and a Philips Hue smart lighting system set up within your home, you will be able to enjoy these great new features:

  • Welcome Home with Lights: Get a brilliant welcome home as your lights turn on and your door unlocks automatically, lighting your way inside.
  • Leave Home Worry-Free: Use one-touch locking with your Yale Smart Keypad when you leave home and your lights will switch off. Automate your lights to simulate your presence at home and gain peace-of-mind while you're away.
  • Share Access to Your Home: Make your guests feel welcome in their home away from home with lights that magically turn on and a door that unlocks via their phone or keypad.

With door locks and lights playing such integral roles in the home, it makes perfect sense to sync them in a way that streamlines the management of the two functions. Both are features of the home that you interact with multiple times a day and have evolved well beyond their initial basic feature sets in the past few years. By integrating your home access and lighting, you’ll be able to make your front door experience even smarter.

As a leading provider of smart home security solutions trusted by millions of people around the world, we’re committed to expanding our smart product ecosystem and providing integrations with trusted partners to enhance your smart home experience.
