For the Wi-Fi version, you would need to purchase the Yale YRL216-CBA. The lock itself features reversible handles so this model would not need to be ordered to have the handles in a specific direction.

Yes! This model is compatible with the Ring alarm system.
- Q Can we lock all 40 doors at once? answer nowAsked by Lee B. Lewis on February 9, 2020 10:56 AMA
This will depend on the smart hub or service that you have the locks paired with. If you are using a service such as Vera, you will have the ability to lock multiple doors at the same time.

The lock fails. It says it is jammed but it is not. I’ve rest, re-registered more than three times. They don’t back this product up after 14 days. Save yourself the expensive grief. Avoid Yale electronic locks.

Fundamentally, it works as advertised. It connected to my Vera hub, can lock or unlock remotely, add and remove codes, etc. However the ergonomics are terrible. The angle of the keypad, and the readability of the keypad is bad, as is getting the keypad backlight on.
First, to get the keypad illuminated, you have to touch a key. Unfortunately the Yale logo at the top is not actually a button/key, so pressing it does nothing. You have to press one of the other 12 keys. If the key you touch is a number key, then you’ve started entering your passcode, but the keypad is dark, so it’s hard to hit the right button. But you’ve already started entering a code, so you have to fail that code entry to start over with the correct code. After you fail a code, the backlight goes off pretty quickly so you have to move fast if you want to read the numbers.
Second, the keypad is not angled up enough, and the numbers are recessed in the keys, so you can’t read the keypad unless you lean over and get your head down near it’s level. If you’re standing within reach of the keypad, the angle you’re looking at the keypad is way too steep to actually read the keypad. It’s stupidly bad. My workaround is I’ve put a small piece of white sticker on the gear button. I can see that in the dark and I know it’s in the lower right. I press that and the keyboard illuminates, but it does not start a code sequence. Then I arguably see to enter my pass code if I lean down a bit.

Great garage door entry lock. I love that it pairs with my Ring Alarm.

I have 6 of these locks on my vacation rentals. They are wonderful locks with great battery life and reliability. It’s the only lock I will use. I pair it with the Vera, now Ezlo hub and I can control the locks from anywhere in the world. It also allows me to set guest specific codes with a start and stop date and time which is invaluable for the vacation rental business.

When I first installed my smart locks, brand K was about the only option that I could find. They worked, but the levers always felt loose on the outside of the house. After a couple of years, the latch began to stick. Then the electronics started to fail. The latch was covered under warranty ($10 item), the electronics were not (expensive part).
I gave up.
The Yale installed easily and appears easy to service (I haven’t had to change batteries yet). It feels much more solid on the door and the lever feels snug. If I have problems with my other brand K lock, I will change it to a Yale.
