HomeKit coming to new smartlocks by August & Yale [U]

The touchscreen version of the EMPowered Smart Lock.

Assa Abloy's August and Yale divisions this week announced two new smartlocks with Apple HomeKit support, the EMPowered Smart Lock and the Yale Assure Lever Lock.

Updated 6/27/19: The Yale Assure Lever Lock with HomeKit is now available to order on Amazon starting at $279.

The EMPowered Smart Lock sports an Emtek design, but August's app and cloud services. Two versions will be available: a $370 keyed entryset model, and a $440 edition with a touchscreen keypad, making it possible to open without a key or smartphone.

The Assure Lever Lock is meant exclusively for single-hole doors, and unlike other Assure options doesn't replace a deadbolt. It can be used with or without smarthome functions since all models come with physical or touchscreen keypads. Prices range between $149 and $299 depending not just on the keypad type, but whether users want a smarthome module.
