According to recent research, more than 90% of security installers view home automation as a significant growth market*. Verisure, Europe’s number one alarm monitoring company, offers more than just protection against intruders. Its growing smart security solution includes climate control, fire brigade integration, energy, insurance and more, within a single integrated platform. Now in Scandinavia, they add seamless door control with the Yale Doorman smart door lock from ASSA ABLOY.
When planning the integration with their home automation ecosystem, Verisure required a smart lock to meet both Finnish and Scandinavian door and lock standards; the option of single-point and multipoint locking; and a device easy to retrofit to homes in these markets.
They needed a smart door lock to be operated from the same control panel as other Verisure devices, which includes powerful tools to control home security from an iOS or Android smartphone.
ASSA ABLOY Provides The Solution
Verisure selected Yale Doorman lock from ASSA ABLOY, a high-quality retrofit solution for Finnish and Scandinavian residences. The Yale Doorman offers IP55 weather resistance and easy operation by PIN, proximity card, remote controller, or app. Once fitted, the Yale Doorman communicates with a Verisure system via an encrypted, proprietary wireless radio protocol.
Homeowners can issue personal unlock codes for long-term use by residents; short-term codes for daily or one-time unlocking; and scheduled, time-controlled codes for use by regular, occasional visitors — so it’s easy to admit a cleaner, carer or cat-sitter at scheduled times only.
“Being able to switch off the alarm when unlocking and locking also creates a seamless experience,” says Fredrik Ringborg, Sales Development Manager & Head of Alliances at Verisure.
ASSA ABLOY’s integration with Verisure enables full control of the Yale Doorman from a smartphone. Residents can lock and unlock their door using the Verisure app and simultaneously check alarm and door status from anywhere. The same mobile app can generate an audit trail — to verify who has entered and when — and homeowners can schedule notifications when specific users (e.g. their children) arrive home.
“This integration significantly boosts domestic security for Verisure users,” says Omer Sagi, Director Business Development Smart Door Locks at ASSA ABLOY EMEA. “An armed Verisure system will also check whether the Yale Doorman is locked at night — and locks it automatically if it is not.”
With Verisure security and the Yale Doorman smart door lock, peace of mind, keyless living, security and convenience come in a single package.
