Thought Yale was just a gothic-designed Ivy league institution in Connecticut? Well, think again. Yale is also the name of a technology company, which just announced the release of its new Assure Smart Lock 2. The device is one of the first smart locks to feature Matter compatibility and it will be available in two keypad models and two touchscreen models. The Matter interoperability spec, which will make it easier to mix and match products from different brands and ecosystems, is set to be released later this fall. As a result, the Matter add-on modules for the Assure Smart Lock 2 will also be released later this Fall.
In other news, Denon, the Japanese electronics manufacturer, has released a new line of AV receivers and amplifiers headlined by the AVC-A1H. This flagship device is set to retail for a whopping $6,499 and will feature compatibility with IMAX Enhanced and Auro 3D formats. This new line of products is also great for gamers as it will support connectivity with Xbox Series X and PS5 gaming consoles.
