Customer Questions & Answers

  1. Q This lock is good for an exterior door? answer now
    Asked by Renee on April 28, 2021 7:29 PM
    Answered by the admin

    The keypad side is weather resistant and can certainly be used for exterior entry doors. However, the battery unit is not weather rated so this model is not recommended for gate applications where both sides of the lock are exposed to the elements. 

  2. Q Does this product work with Vivint? answer now
    Asked by Rob Scott on November 26, 2020 8:29 PM
    Answered by the admin

    The Yale YRD256 is compatible with the Vivint smarthome system. 

  3. Answered by the admin

    This would depend on the Z-Wave controller that you are using to control the devices. With a hub such as Vera, you can create Scenes where if another device (such as a Ring Doorbell) is triggered, the lock or other device will open. 

    The only way this would work for all doorbells is if all of the devices were connected to the same controller that has this feature. 

  4. Answered by the admin

    Yes, this model is fitted with Z-Wave plus and supports secure command classes. 

  5. Q Does it fit a 1” 3/8” door? answer now
    Asked by Farid on April 26, 2020 4:28 PM
    Answered by the admin

    Unfortunately, no. The minimum thickness for this model is 1 3/4 in.

  6. Answered by the admin

    This lock is not recommended for gate applications as the interior unit is not weatherproofed. We would advise on a mechanical or fully weatherproofed model for gate applications. 

  7. Q Is there an override code if you have it on privacy mode? answer now
    Asked by tony on October 3, 2019 5:06 PM
    Answered by the admin

    When the lock is placed into privacy mode, the PIN pad is completely disabled. You can, however, use your phone as a means of entry.

  8. Q Is this lock Vera edge compatible answer now
