Most locks are made for keys.
This lock is made for people.

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. 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. Even set times when passcodes expire. You can get alerts whenever someone unlocks and locks the door. And when Nest knows you’re away, your door can lock automatically.

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.
Frequently asked questions
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, 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.
The Nest × Yale Lock can replace most common deadbolt locks. It will fit several standard door thicknesses:

1 3/8 in (35 mm) thick
1 3/4 in (44 mm) thick
Between 2 – 2 ¼ in (51 – 57 mm) thick

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 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.
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.
Voice control features will not be available right away after the Nest × Yale Lock is released, but we’re working to incorporate voice technology and will continue to explore how voice control can safely enhance security in homes.

In the future we’d like you to be able to do things like ask your Google Home to check if your door is locked, or lock the door for you. We currently don’t have any plans to allow voice control to unlock the Nest × Yale Lock.
Security from front to back. And everywhere in between.
The Nest × Yale Lock is secure and tamper-proof. But when you add the Nest Secure alarm system, Nest Cam IQ indoor cameras, the Nest Hello video doorbell and Works with Nest products, your home can be covered from the outside in.
