Nest x Yale smart lock review

 

The Nest x Yale smart lock is beautifully designed, but is it worth the price?

Well-designed ; Great app ; Easy to use

Expensive ; Not much smart home integration

The Nest x Yale smart lock is well-designed and easy to use, and we think it’s the best choice for those who like Nest’s ecosystem. If, however, you’re plugged in to another smart home ecosystem, another product may be better for you. The Nest x Yale...

Nest x Yale Lock: First smart door lock finally unveiled at CES 2018

 

The Nest x Yale Lock is two years in the making, but are smart door locks the future?

You may be wary of picking up this WiFI-enabled door lock when it releases – and I expect there will be plenty of Nest-bashing opinion pieces when it does launch – but the Nest x Yale Lock is the final piece of the inter-connected smart home puzzle.

Nest X Yale Lock review

 

Sleek, elegant design ; Simple keypad and app-powered operation ; Responsive and reliable ; Works with Google Assistant

Large rear lock housing ; Awkward installation due to poor quality internals ; Fewer features than competitors

Having eagerly anticipated the fruits of the Nest x Yale partnership, the reality is that three years of development have resulted in a stylish and elegant lock that ultimately fails to live up to its billing. Pricier and bulkier than competitors but...

Nest X Yale Lock With Nest Connect

 

The Nest X Yale Lock with Nest Connect is a sharp-looking smart door lock that combines Yale reliability with Nest IoT home connectivity.

Stylish design. Easy to install. Works with Nest Secure. Very quiet.

Doesn't work with IFTTT. No voice activation support.

The Nest X Yale Lock with Nest Connect is a solid choice for a smart door lock, especially if you've already outfitted your home with other Nest devices such as the Nest Secure security solution, the Nest Hello Doorbell, and one or more Nest Cam...

Nest Hello and Yale lock review: a smart entrance

 

Nest's first video doorbell impresses, but the companion smart lock isn't a necessity

High-resolution video quality ; Tight integration with Google Assistant ; Pre-recorded voice prompts, so you don’t have to talk to anyone

No battery-powered option ; Limited functionality if you’re not paying for Nest Aware ; Automation is there, but limited

Combined, the Nest Hello and the Nest x Yale lock can bring your standard entryway into line with the rest of your smart home, while providing a sense of security to help you rest easy at night.

You can buy the Nest x Yale Lock now, but should you?

 

We've been waiting on a Nest-Yale collaboration for quite a while, but does this $249 lock live up to the hype?

The Nest x Yale Lock looks good and works with Nest to lock the door when you're away, disarm your Nest Secure alarm system and manage up to 20 passcodes.

There aren't any ZigBee, Z-Wave or iM1 (HomeKit) modules to add this lock to your smart home. The Nest integrations are underwhelming, and there aren't any voice control capabilities yet.

If you love Nest products (and especially if you own the Nest Secure alarm system) the Nest x Yale smart lock is a good bet. If you're after voice control or more flexible smart-home hub integration, look elsewhere.

Nest x Yale Lock review: Nest’s first smart lock is a solid effort, but it needs refinement

 

Nest's partnership with Yale is a rocky combination.

Integrates well with the Nest ecosystem ; All the expected features are front and center ; Sturdy hardware

Not terribly attractive, particularly inside the house ; Considerable trouble during setup ; Expensive, especially if you also need to buy a Nest Connect

Nest X Yale Review: Best Smart Lock for Nest Users

 

If you already have one or more Nest devices and use Google Assistant a lot, the Nest X Yale is a good choice for a smart lock. If you don't want to be locked into Nest, then the August Smart Lock Pro is a better all-around choice, as is the Yale Real...

Simple installation ; Integrates with other Nest devices

No support for Amazon Alexa or HomeKit

Those who have other Nest smart-home devices will find a lot to like in the Nest X Yale.

Nest x Yale Smart Lock review: Buggy, but wonderfully convenient and secure

 

Google brings its nest brand to the Smart Lock world with the Nest X Yale.

At $279.99, the Nest x Yale is a heavy investment. But the convenience of being able to unlock your phone without using a key can't be overstated, and the ability to assign temporary keys instead of handing out permanent physical ones is wonderful.
