It is motorised, in that if you connected it to Smartthings, the motor would engage, and disengage the split spindle which allows the outside handle to move the door latch and lock/unlock the door, but the motor would have no way of engaging the rest of the multipoint locks as it only operates the spindle, and absolutely wouldn’t be strong enough to throw the rest of the locks out as well. Besides, that would probably kill the AA batteries in a matter of days.
Having said all the above, I think it’s a great lock. I don’t regret buying it at all, and it’s simply a process of entering house, and lifting the handle up on the otherside which throws all the multipoint locks.
So much so, if you read my other post from the other day, you’ll see the lock, and Smartthings as a whole actually prevented a burglary at my house.
…although, having said that, due to the Yale Keyfree lock having a keypad, I do feel that it possibly enticed the burglars to try my house. I think maybe they thought it was an easier lock to break through. I say this from the point that in 13 years of owning my house, I’ve never had a break in. 1 month after installing the Yale Keyfree, someone had a try. I’m putting 2 and 2 together and assuming I’ve come to 4.
