The Linus® Smart Lock Wins Red Dot for Outstanding Design Quality
The Linus® Smart Lock from Yale has won the Red Dot Award in the Product Design 2020 category for its good design quality in the security system category. Linus® Smart Lock is a combination of intelligent design and the most state-of-the-art technology. It is a new, motorised smart lock from Yale. Intuitive and easy to install, Linus® reimagines home safety by allowing its users to remotely lock and unlock the door, check door status, grant virtual guest keys and see who is coming and going, all while fitting the most stylish and modern homes of today.
Featuring the most advanced software, Linus® is controlled through the user-friendly Yale Access app and was manufactured with premium materials for better strength and durability. Designed with a stunning brushed metal finish available in silver and matte black, Linus® features a convenient size, measuring 52mm in width, 58mm in depth, and 150mm in length. An illuminated LED light ring is presented on its refined, rounded surface to reveal whether the device is locked.
To achieve this look, famous Swiss product designer, Yves Behar used softer surface transitions, rounded edges, and a textured finish on the lock for a sense of refinement that invites tactility. Having designed for the likes of Apple or HP, Yves intended to create a smart lock that follows the Yale philosophy by exceeding our consumers’ performance and durability expectations and giving them a real feel of the smart homes of tomorrow.
Kate Clark, Managing Director, Yale EMEA, said “We are delighted to have been awarded this prestigious and much sought-after seal of quality. This recognition is a testament to the hard work of our team to ensure that Linus® will provide homeowners with not only an enhanced level of protection and utmost peace of mind but also internationally recognised functionality and superb design.”
