Exertis Announce Smart Living Range

Yale Smart Lock

Exertis has announced a distribution agreement with Yale, a home security brand, including its Smart Living range of smart door locks, smart alarms, and smart CCTV systems.

Rod Slater, Exertis head of smart tech and IoT, said, “Security devices continue to be a key driver for growth in the Smart Technology category and Yale is a trusted brand that complements our market leading range of products. Users have the capability to secure and check their home from anywhere, and the convenience of granting access to known individuals – all via their smartphone and the Yale app.”

The Yale Smart Living range is available as standalone products or can be part of a Yale smart home security system incorporating a smart home alarm, home view camera and smart CCTV with built-in night vision infrared LEDs. Yale smart door locks can also integrate with other smart home systems and some are even compatible with the Alexa voice assistant in order to control the door lock. For added convenience, the new Conexis® L1 Smart Door Lock allows users to unlock their front door simply by twisting their phone 90 degrees via its “Twist-and-Go” Bluetooth low energy app. In addition, to a tamper alarm, it also meets PAS24 security standards.

The Keyless Connected Smart Lock was named DIY Week’s best security product of the year 2016, enabling users to open doors in a variety of ways, including a PIN code, remote fob or smartphone. The EF Yale alarm series provides wire-free technology with easy installation with options for a smoke detector, PIR motion detector and door and window contacts. Yale’s Home View cameras include pan, tilt and zoom functionality, link wirelessly to an internet connection and have options for motion detection and a two way audio feature. The Smart CCTV system enables users to view footage from anywhere using a smartphone, tablet or PC.

Tabitha Morton,Head of Integration for Yale said, “Exertis has established itself as the leading distributor for Smart Tech products and has strong relationships with a wide variety of retailers and installers. They have also demonstrated an innovative go-to-market strategy that has helped retailers to better address consumers and devised new routes to market for manufacturers. We look forward to working with their team at a time when, many analysts believe, the market is expected to grow significantly over the next few years.”
