Congratulations on your acquisition of the Yale Touchscreen Deadbolt Lock. This smart lock not only gives you all the advantages of modern electronic access control, like keyless entry and personalized codes for family and friends, its actions are also viewable and controllable through your Vera Smart Controller -- from anywhere.
This lock gives you an interactive touchscreen that makes day-to-day access effortless, as well as offering voice-guided programming. It's been engineered for quick and easy installation by yourself or a professional, and fits in place of a standard deadbolt lock door size (ANSI/BHMA A156.115).
To have your Yale Touchscreen lock work with your Vera Smart Controller, it needs to be located within 50 - 100 feet of the controller, which is sufficient for virtually any home. If you will be installing this lock beyond 100 feet from the Smart Controller, you can have Z-Wave devices that are physically between the two send and receive commands from your smart lock, much like a miniature relay station.
In this tutorial, we will focus on control of your Yale lock through Vera, and also guide you toward proper installation. Let's begin with that step now...
