Assure YRD256-CBA-619
This keyless smartlock from Yale comes with a wifi bridge from August that allows you to wirelessly communicate with your lock from anywhere. IT also comes with a door sensor that can tell you that the door is not only locked, but shut firmly. The app allows you to keep track of when, by whom, and how your lock was operated (both locks and unlocks). Make sure to use the longer supplied screws for the strike plate installation to ensure better kick-in resistance.
