There’s a coupon code “LOCKS485” to buy this lock for $85, on Amazon, but you must buy from seller MyDigitalDiscount. I don’t have this lock, but for the price, I think I’m going to try it out. It’s Zigbee and overall I prefer zwave, but the zwave is more expensive.
That’s a really great price. I prefer ZigBee for the battery life and faster update status over Z-Wave (though with Z-Wave Plus locks now entering the market that changes). If you want access to more features and lock codes, I recommend my DTH. EDIT: which I guess is already linked above.
Ouch, that is not cool. Hopefully if they can’t provide the module, at least you could get Amazon to accept the return/refund- I believe generally Amazon is more favorable to the customer than the reseller…
While I don’t have any Yale locks, I have never heard of ZigBee module coming not installed in a consumer device. More likely you got an uneducated CS rep and they were referring to ZigBee controller not the ZigBee radio in the lock being a separate device.
It is official - I apologize to Amazon, I apologize to MyDigitalDiscount.
Lock connected to my hub using Zigbee. Door unlocks / locks using my tablet. I am happy…
Not real happy with Yale CS. He tried to convince me if I got $45 off, it did not include the module.
For reference: module hides in the battery compartment. No obvious way to remove it.
Also: Nothing in the documentation that comes with the lock mentions Zigbee or Zwave.
Not on the box, not in the printed instructions. All is well that ends well…
