Anglian Heralds New Era of Keyless Front Door Entry with Yale Smart Living

Anglian Home Improvements is heralding a new era of keyless door entry for UK homeowners, with the introduction of the Conexis™ L1 Smart Door Lock – a highly secure Bluetooth technology solution from Yale’s revolutionary Smart Living Range.

As the first home improvements company to add the innovative, ultra-modern chrome handle to its product portfolio, Anglian is responding to the requirements of an increasingly tech-savvy customer base, while also tapping into the ‘connected home’ trend.

Featuring a sleek, minimal aesthetic, the Conexis™ L1 Smart Door Lock can be fitted onto any of Anglian’s PVC-u or composite doors.  Utilising Bluetooth low energy technology to facilitate quick entry via a smart phone app, there is no need for a conventional key.  

The app also provides the ability to send mobile keys to friends and family, which can then be easily disabled when they are no longer required; and there is also the option to operate it via Key Tags, which work via Radio Frequency Identification.  

As well as providing flexibility, the Conexis™ L1 Smart Door Lock also provides reliability and peace-of-mind and carries Yale’s Security Guarantee.

Mark Farmer-Wright, Product Development Manager at Anglian Home Improvements, said: “The Yale Conexis™ L1 Smart Door Lock undoubtedly represents the future of front door furniture, and it is set to be a game changer for many of our customers. There is no longer any need to leave a door key under a mat, to worry about missing keys or the expense of replacing them, or to spend time trying to find keys when you have got your hands full.  

“For over 50 years Anglian has built a reputation as the UK’s leading home improvements company, and we are incredibly proud to be partnering with Yale to introduce this standout product from its Smart Living Range.  As well as having a contemporary look which will appeal to style-conscious homeowners, the smart door lock is installed to Anglian’s high standards, and customers will have the ultimate peace-of-mind of Anglian’s ongoing support.”

Tabitha Morton, Head of Integration from Yale, said: “This is the latest example of co-operation between two leading brands to make smart living a reality for UK homeowners. More people are beginning to understand the real value that smart home technology can provide in their everyday lives.  With Conexis L1 your smartphone is now your key and whatsmore you can send ‘mobile keys’ to family and friends, granting access for a few weeks or hours - It’s totally up to you.”

In addition to the Conexis Smart Door Lock, Anglian has also introduced the Digital Door Viewer Memory +, which is also from Yale’s Smart Living range.  The modern equivalent to the spy viewer, the Digital Door Viewer includes a camera – complete with night vision – and doorbell, which is fitted on the door.  There is also a four inch LCD screen which is fitted to the internal face of the door. The Digital Door Viewer comes complete with internal memory, to capture date and time stamped images of people who have called at the property while the homeowner is away. A Micro SD can also be installed for additional memory.  The Digital Door View Memory + can be installed by Anglian on its PVC-u and Composite doors.

 All customers who purchase an Anglian door with a Yale Three Star Cylinder – which are included on the majority of all its doors – benefit from the ten-year Yale Security Guarantee.  Designed to help mitigate the financial expense and stress of a break-in, the guarantee includes up to £250 towards calling out a locksmith to secure the property and a goodwill payment of £1,000 – along with a raft of other compensation measures.
