Yale Locks & Hardware Announces Distribution Partnership with ADI

North America’s Leading Wholesale Distributor of Security and Low-Voltage Products to Offer Yale Real Living Locks.

Yale Locks & Hardware (www.yalelocks.com), an ASSA ABLOY Group company and a world leader in door hardware for residential and commercial applications, announced a new distribution partnership with ADI, North America’s leading wholesale distributor of security and low-voltage products.

By virtue of this agreement, ADI will distribute the complete line of Yale Real Living™ locks, including both the keypad and touchscreen versions, as well as the new lever-lock version.  
The Yale Real Living access control solution is the first lock specifically designed to seamlessly integrate into the digital home.  The locks offer one-touch residential access control of the home’s entryways and protected interior doors, even remotely via Internet. Yale's new platform of intelligent locks supports both Z-Wave® and ZigBee®, allowing them to integrate seamlessly into a wide range of home control and security systems, including Honeywell’s Tuxedo security system, the Vera Z-Wave® home control system by Mi Casa Verde, Alarm.com's emPower™, and Honeywell’s Lynx 5100 panel, among others. 

According to Jason Williams, “With their global distribution capabilities, ADI can help to expand the reach of YRL locks, across borders and into new markets.  Given the increasing demand for the Yale Real Living lock, we needed a company like ADI to help us meet our distribution challenges.”
