I’m a ST user in the UK and just came across the Yale Smart Lock Conexis L1 Smart Handle. Does anyone have any experience with this handle? I’m not too sure how this lock works but currently on my front door I have one of those Key-operated multi-point locking system that looks similar to the following pic:
I have also come across the following youtube video about the vulnerability of the Yale smart locks which seems to feature SmartThings in the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iwm6nvC9Xhc
Any thoughts on this?
If I were to replace my current lock with one of these, what are the pros and cons? This seems like it’s completely keyless and operated by a battery but what happens when lets say the tech fails or something not working in the tech, surely we should have a mechanical key or bypass option? For example what happens if internet goes down at the house and it cannot communicate with ST? Does it directly communicate with ST or do you have to add it to a Yale system first and then route it into ST?
