How Do I Enter My Home and/or Disable Access if My Phone is Lost or Stolen?

The Yale digital door lock can still be accessed with a key or via the digital keypad depending on the lock model.

If your phone is lost or stolen, follow these steps to regain access to your home:

To log out of all devices / disable your phone’s access to your lock, you will need access to the Internet and the email account you use with Yale Access Home. You can access the Internet via a desktop computer or an alternative mobile device such as another phone or a tablet.

  1. Go to the website account.august.com
  2. Select the link Login with email from the bottom of the screen
  3. Enter your email and password to login
  4. Login to your email account and retrieve the verification code
  5. Go back to account.august.com, enter the code, and select verify
  6. Select Lost Phone to log out of the Yale Access App on all devices
  7. Select Logout of Yale Access App to complete steps

You are now logged out of your Yale Access account. PLEASE NOTE: Any third party apps such as Amazon, Google Assistant, Z-Wave, etc. will continue working as expected.

To regain access to your home:

If you have a physical key, you can use that to get into your home.

If you don’t have a physical key, you will need to gain access to your lock using another smartphone.

  • Step 1: Download the Yale Access App to a substitute smartphone.
  • Step 2: Log into your Yale Access account

You can now operate your lock using this phone. Once you have a permanent replacement phone, there is no need to set up your Yale Access devices again. All that is required is to download the Yale Access App on the replacement phone and sign in / validate your phone number or email address. All of your Yale Access devices will remain set up in your account.
