Alexa can unlock Yale's smart deadbolt locks


Amazon's Alexa has been useful for locking Yale's smart deadbolts, but what about unlocking them when there's a guest at the door? Yale has introduced Alexa support for unlocking its Assure Locks with voice commands. You'll need to set and remember a four-digit code, but that still makes it easy to let someone in without moving from the couch. You can always launch the app if you're not within range of a smart speaker. The addition comes right on the heels of Schlage's support and hints at smart locks are becoming much more practical.
