How to Set Access Schedules

Yale Assure have 3 access types: Always, Temporary, and Recurring. You can choose between three different access types when adding guests to your Yale Access Smart Lock.

You can modify access types for your existing guests in the Guests List or set them when you invite new guests.

 

  • Always - Guests have unlimited access, but the owner can change or delete their access at any time.
  • Recurring - Guests have a scheduled access time that repeats. For example, guests are invited every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday morning from 8:00 am to 10:00 am.
  • Temporary- Guests have a limited invitation to your home that expires. For example, guests have access for a one time use that is limited to the date and time you've selected.
