Yale knows secure locks. Nest knows the connected home. Together, we’ve made a tamper‑proof, key‑free deadbolt that connects to the Nest app.1 Now you can lock and unlock your door from anywhere. Give people you trust a passcode, instead of a key. Lock and check your door status with your voice using the Google Assistant. And always know who comes and goes.

Let someone in from anywhere.
When the Nest × Yale Lock is connected to the Nest app, you can unlock your door from your phone. Create passcodes for family, guests and people you trust. Get alerts whenever someone unlocks and locks the door. And when Nest knows you’re away, your door can lock automatically.
Lock it up.
Check the status of your door and lock it from anywhere hands‑free with the Google Assistant. You can also enter a passcode, use one‑touch locking, or lock it from the Nest app.
It’s secure and tamper-proof.
The Nest × Yale Lock replaces the deadbolt you already have. If someone tries to tamper with it, you’ll get an alert. If the batteries start running low, you’ll know right away. And if your lock loses power, you can quickly charge it with a 9V battery to unlock the door.
How it works.
The Nest × Yale Lock connects to your Wi-Fi and the Nest app through Nest Connect or Nest Guard. You’ll need either one to lock and unlock your door remotely.
Install it yourself.
Or call a Nest Pro.
Your deadbolt is simple to switch out.
But a Nest Pro is always happy to help.
Do I need to buy anything else to make it work?
The Nest × Yale Lock doesn’t connect directly to Wi-Fi. Instead it uses Weave to connect to a Nest Connect or Nest Guard in your home. Your Connect or Guard, which are connected to your Wi-Fi network, let your lock communicate with the Nest service in the cloud and the Nest app on your phone.
If you purchase the Nest × Yale Lock from one of our retail partners, Nest Connect is included in the box when you purchase the lock. You won’t need to purchase anything else to make your lock work.
If you purchase the Nest × Yale Lock from store.nest.com, you have the option to buy it with or without a Nest Connect. That way, if you already have a Nest Secure alarm system, you can purchase the lock without Nest Connect and you’ll still have everything you need to make it work.
If you’re installing multiple locks, you may only need one Nest Connect to work with your locks. If your doors are far apart, you might need more than one Nest Connect.
For best results, you should try to install your Nest Connect about halfway between your router and your lock.
Will it work on my door?
The Nest × Yale Lock can replace most common deadbolt locks. It will fit several standard door thicknesses:
Your door can be any width or height. Only the thickness and backset matter.
The Nest × Yale Lock can be used with doors made of the following materials: wood, metal, or fiberglass.
The Nest × Yale Lock is not designed to be used on glass or sliding doors. It was also not designed to work with Mortise locks or multi-point locks.
Backset refers to the distance between the edge of your door and the center for the hole your deadbolt. If your deadbolt is more than 2-3/4 in (70mm) away from the edge of your door, it’s not compatible. You can check the install guide for more information.
How does it work with other Nest products?
The Nest × Yale Lock works together with the Nest Secure alarm system to make coming home easy. You can enable an option in the Nest app to disarm your alarm when your door is unlocked.
You’ll be able to use the Nest app to see your lock status, enable or disable guest access, and lock and unlock your door from anywhere as long as your lock is connected to the internet.
Your lock can send you notifications on your phone whenever your door is locked, unlocked, or when someone tries to enter an incorrect password five times.
Your lock can also work with Home/Away Assist to automatically lock itself when everyone’s away from home.
What if the battery dies and I’m locked out?
The Nest × Yale Lock is a secure battery powered lock that doesn’t rely on your home Wi-Fi network to lock or unlock when using the keypad. It uses 4 standard AA alkaline batteries. Rechargeable batteries not recommended.
You’ll be notified on your phone when your batteries start to get low and you’ll see a low battery status in the Nest app. You’ll also see a red low battery light on the lock’s keypad The lock will also speak a low battery warning to you when you use the keypad.
When your batteries get critically low, you’ll be notified again, before they’re completely depleted.You will need to replace your batteries as soon as possible after a critically low battery alert.
If you wait too long and the batteries die, you won’t be locked out completely. Simply hold a 9V alkaline battery to the terminals at the bottom of your lock to provide temporary power. Then you can enter your passcode and unlock the door. Once you’re inside, you can replace the lock’s batteries.
Does it support voice commands?
Yes. The Nest × Yale Lock supports voice commands through a Google Assistant enabled device like a Google Home or an Android phone. You can tell your device to lock your door and check whether it's locked, and even include your lock as part of a Routine, such as “Goodnight.”
