Planning a summer party or backyard barbecue? See how Yale’s products can help you upgrade your summer entertaining style and give your guests an unforgettable experience. You’ll have to stock up on ice, beverages, and outdoor lighting, so let us help you cross security measures off your party checklist. Here’s how to add convenience and peace of mind before and during your big event:



The Doorman: Yale Assure Lock Touchscreen

The Yale Assure Lock Touchscreen connects to Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, allowing you to remotely lock or unlock your door from anywhere. Whether you’re hosting an intimate summer party for a few friends or putting together a large-scale event, allow your grocery deliverers, caterers, decorators and photographers to easily come in and out via the Yale Access App or keypad. 



The Event Coordinator: Smart Speakers and Hub

Once the party is in full swing, the Yale Assure Lock’s integrations with voice assistants can make welcoming guests a bit easier. Simply command the door to lock or unlock with Amazon Alexa and Google Home while bustling about or prepping food, so you don’t need to stand guard or even keep your hands clean! 


The Bartender: Yale Smart Cabinet Lock

For summer parties that include kiddos, the Yale Smart Cabinet Lock is perfect to keep the liquor cabinet or other sensitive items locked up. And if they get a bit too sneaky, you can always check the activity feed and see if your cabinets have been opened or closed with the Yale Access App.


The Send Off Party: Philips Hue 

As the night comes to an end, give your guests a proper exit by lighting the way with your Philips Hue smart lights integrated with the Yale Assure Lock. Once your last guests leaves, lock your door and your lights will automatically turn off for you to finally unwind from your successful party! 


Before you send out your next soiree invite, add Yale to your party checklist and see what the added security can do for you! It may not sound like your typical summer party essential, but the flexibility and convenience it allows you is the best party favor of all.
