Auto-Unlock provides added convenience when you arrive home and relies on your phone’s Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS to know if you’re home or away.
Yale Access uses two modes to enable Auto-Unlock to function: Home Mode and Away Mode. These modes indicate where Auto-Unlock thinks you are: at home or away from home.
When you are at home (in Home Mode), Auto-Unlock is not actively doing anything. It is waiting until you leave home.
When you approach your door, Auto-Unlock will unlock your door via Bluetooth. This means Auto-Unlock cannot operate your lock when you are away from home.
You are considered away from home when you leave your immediate neighborhood, which is about 200 meters, or a couple city blocks. It is only active when you return to your home area.
