YoLink, by YoSmart (a US corporation based in Irvine, California), is a line of smart products for residential and commercial use, utilizing wireless technology initially utilized for industrial and other large-scale applications. This technology, LoRa, short for Long-Range, is unique in the smart home industry and provides you with benefits that include 2 to 10 year battery life, 1/4 mile extreme long range, superior wall and obstruction penetration, including concrete, masonry and even metal!
YoLink benefits include a more secure automation network due to a centralized and encrypted internet connection, as the devices are not on the internet and they do not rely on WiFi. All communication is encrypted, and controlled by AWS servers, for finance-grade security, backups and redundancies. Our patented Control-D2D device-to-device pairing allows for offline operation, including functionality even after the loss of WiFi, internet, and AC power, making it perfect for your critical operations, such as water leak detection and automatic shut-off and security.
What is YoLink Control or Control-D2D?
Control D2D (device-to-device) pairing allows for one or more sensors to be paired with one or more other sensors, in a way that they will respond and operate automatically, even with the loss of WiFi, internet and AC power. For example, leak sensors can be paired to a valve controller, so that the water is shut off automatically when a leak is detected. This is a unique feature not found in other smart water leak systems.
If your smart system absolutely must perform, no matter what - power outage, loss of internet - you can depend on YoLink Control-D2D!

What is LoRa?
We'll spare you the techy mumbo-jumbo and simply tell you that LoRa, short for Long-Range, is a unique wireless communication standard that has superior obstruction penetration, and achieves incredibly long range while using very little power. YoSmart was the first to bring LoRa technology to the smart home, and we continue to innovate, with two-way encryption, and patented Control-D2D device-to-device pairing that offers an offline mode that will continue to provide functionality even with the loss of internet and AC power.
By comparison to smart devices that utilize WiFi, Z-Wave and Zigbee, the YoLink wireless network can achieve over 1300 feet in open air, compared to their ~300 feet.
