OAK BROOK, Ill., Jan. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Two market leaders, LiftMaster, the number one brand of professionally installed residential garage door openers, and Yale Home, the best-known and most respected name in the lock industry, have joined forces to provide seamless smart access capabilities for the home. The new Yale|LiftMaster Smart Keypad Lever and Yale|LiftMaster Smart Touchscreen Deadbolt are the latest additions to LiftMaster's ecosystem of myQ-connected products.
"LiftMaster takes pride in combining dependable hardware with our myQ smart technology to create relevant home access solutions that bring peace of mind to our customer's everyday lives," said Jeff Meredith, President and COO of Chamberlain Group, the parent company of LiftMaster and Chamberlain brand garage door openers and smart access solutions. "By partnering with Yale, we are able to extend our myQ access solutions beyond the garage to the front, side and rear doors of our customer's homes. LiftMaster is excited to offer this expanded capability of monitoring and controlling all home access points to our millions of myQ customers."
The myQ-connected Yale|LiftMaster Smart Keypad Lever and Yale|LiftMaster Smart Touchscreen Deadbolt will allow homeowners to upgrade their existing locks with a keyless entry system that can be locked or unlocked from their phone, anytime, from anywhere. No more having to keep track of keys or share keys with friends and family. Through the myQ App, homeowners can receive alerts when a door is locked or unlocked, easily lock or unlock the door in real-time or share access through the myQ Guest feature with up to three people. With the addition of these myQ-connected locks, LiftMaster offers a full suite of integrated myQ products that allows homeowners to build a complete smart home access solution that provides peace of mind, knowing the front door is locked, the garage door is closed and the home is secure.
"At Yale, we're dedicated to providing our customers with secure and convenient access to their homes, and collaborating with the world's leading smart home companies is a major way that we bring this vision to life," said Jason Williams, President of Yale's Smart Residential Group. "Creating a smart lock that works with LiftMaster and the myQ app made perfect sense for Yale, as we can better serve customers whose primary entryway is the garage. Now, LiftMaster users can enjoy the simplicity and convenience of the myQ experience with trusted secure hardware from Yale."
The Yale|LiftMaster Smart Keypad Lever and Yale|LiftMaster Smart Touchscreen Deadbolt locks require the myQ hub to operate. They will be available soon for purchase on Liftmaster.com and through select LiftMaster dealers starting at $260. For more information, visit LiftMaster.com/keyless-smart-lock.
