Connect Yale Doorman to HomeSeer

How to connect your Yale Doorman to HomeSeer via Verisure SmartLock.

To connect Yale Doorman to HomeSeer, you need to have the Verisure SmartLock Box that include the Verisure VBox Micro and Verisure SmartLock Module. To use this module you do not need to have an alarm from Verisure and the use of this SmartLock does not have a running cost. This solution is tested in Norway, but will probably also work in Sweden and Denmark, because Verisure also offer the SmartLock Box in these countries as well.

Physically install Yale Doorman

Watch this clip on how to change the lock in your door. Before adding the SmartLock module take a note of the Serial number of SmartLock. You will need this number for registration of the unit at Verisure.

Making Yale Doorman smart

Once Yale Doorman is installed on your door and works, you can connect the SmartLock module, if you didn’t do that in the physically installation process. Remember to take note of the Serial number. SmartLock Serial number

Start by removing the battery cover and add the module in the bottom of the battery housing.

SmartLock in Yale Doorman

Register on, by following the instructions on the website. The registration process can take from 30-60 minutes, because this process will upgrade the firmware in the Verisure VBox. The firmware update for me only took 5 minutes. The time for getting a connection between the VBox and SmartLock were about 5 minutes as well in my case.

When you have a connection, you can edit settings in Yale Doorman and add users with pin code or RFID tags.

When the guide is complete you can use your door lock with pin codes, RFID tags and control it from the website or the verisure app.

Control from HomeSeer

To control the lock from HomeSeer you now need to add a pin from a user that HomeSeer will use to control the door lock. I have create a new user at the verisure website. That means I can see if it is a person or HomeSeer who have locked or unlocked the door. The pin I have created for that user is entered at the setting window for the plugin. Enter the pin code in Yale pin and Alarm pin. After saving this the plugin will restart again, when this is finished HomeSeer can now control the lock.
