Customer Questions & Answers

  1. A

    This may depend on which Z-Wave controller and app you are using in conjunction with this lock. Please call us at 937-247-9327 and one of our sales experts will assist you in getting the right setup for you!

  2. Q If the power goes out or battery dies how do you unlock the door? answer now
    Asked by Malcolm Van de Riet II on April 17, 2023 3:19 PM

    The Yale YRD256-ZW2 has a backup option if your unit runs out of battery power and you are locked out. Below the touchscreen are terminals for a 9V battery. You may use this to give it enough power to use a valid code and enter.

  3. A

    Yes, you can remotely lock and unlock this lock from a Samsung phone. You would need a Z-Wave controller setup to make it work. As long as the Z-Wave Controller has an internet connection and your Samsung device has an internet connection it should work, distance is not a factor. Feel free to give us a call at 937-247-9327 and someone from our Sales Team can help you decide if this product will work for you!

  4. Q Can you program more than one code? answer now
    Asked by George Jorgensen on November 9, 2022 7:05 PM

    Yes, the YRD256-ZW2 allows for up to 25 unique pin codes when programming as a stand alone lock, and 250 when paired to a Z-Wave controller!

  5. A

    Yes! The YRD156 and the YRD256 do meet ADA compliances.

  6. Q What’s the difference between YRD156 and YRD 256? answer now
    Asked by Eric on August 26, 2022 4:18 AM

    From Yale: 

    Appearance: you will see that the YRD156 has a larger battery cover and no privacy button on the inside of the lock
    Functionality: YRD156 does not have voice guided programming menus or privacy mode
    YRD156 also has a built in Zwave radio, so all YRD156 locks do not have a green Zwave Yale module inside the battery cover.

  7. Q How would you complete a hard reset back to the standard/stock set up? answer now
    Asked by Robert Fowers on August 1, 2022 5:03 PM

    To reset the YRD256, please follow the steps below!

    1. Remove the battery cover and batteries.
    2. Remove the interior escutcheon to access the reset button.
    3. The reset button is located beside the PCB cable connector.
    4. While pressing the reset button (minimum of 3 seconds), reinstall the batteries. Release the reset button.
    5. Replace the battery cover.

    Upon reset, Master Code creation is the only option available and must be performed prior to any other programming of the lock.
