The smart lock from Yale Linus now works together with the smart lamps from Philips Hue. The two companies have teamed up to provide a better smarthome experience.
The idea is that through the integration you can ensure that when you are at your door and the lock is unlocked, the lights in the hallway come on. This is not only very practical to be able to see something, but can also offer a safer feeling than stepping into a dark house.

In addition, the integration also ensures, for example, that your indoor lights go out correctly when you leave the building. Although you can of course switch off the lights via the Hue app if you have forgotten them, you do not have to worry about that at all. This is regulated by the integration with the lock.
There are three options to choose when it comes to Linus Smart Lock and Hue, namely: Welcome Home with Lights, which switches on a lamp as soon as the door is unlocked. The second option is Leave Home Worry-Free, where with a touch of the Yale you can signal your departure and the lights will go out. The third and final option is Share Access to Your Home, where guests immediately have light in the hallway after unlocking the door with their smartphone.
The collaboration is of course very welcome, but it does not come as a complete surprise. The Yale Sync Smart alarm already works with Signify’s Philips Hue lights. The same goes for Yale’s SR line. This integration also provides a safer feeling, but not so much for when you come home. This combi works with an alarm and lights to scare away burglars, who often strike when you are not at home.
The combination of Yale and Philips Hue is there on the one hand for comfort, but on the other hand -and mainly- for safety. Whether it concerns demotivating burglars or providing a safe feeling of not having to walk into a dark house.
