How the company describes the product:

The YoLink home automation/smart home system provides coverage and range unmatched by other technologies, like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ZigBee and Z-Wave, because it is based on a unique technology from Semtech, called LoRa (short for Long-Range). LoRa is in use in businesses, factories, transportation, and cities and municipalities across the world, and now, for the first time, it can power your home automation system. YoLink offers exceptionally long range, wall penetration and anti-interference. All that yet with extremely low power consumption, resulting in batteries lasting years longer than with Wi-Fi and similar technologies. YoLink offers a comprehensive package of long-range, low-power, easy set-up, low cost and the highest reliability and most secure IoT network.

Discussion and Reviews

I have written several Tech-enhanced Life articles that feature YoLink products and found that their use of LoRa verses Wi-Fi, Zigbee, Bluetooth or Z-Wave has been very reliable. You can find my articles below.

I’m currently working on articles using YoLink motion sensors, smart plugs, temperature sensors, and valves.

One major advantage is that you can configure and test devices at your home, under your loved one’s YoLink account, and then drop-ship the devices to them for installation.

Tech-enhanced Life Resource Database

This is one of hundreds of products and resources in the Tech-enhanced Life database of "useful products and resources".

The theme of this collection of resources is "tools we can use to help improve our quality of life as we grow older".

We have no vested interest in any of these products or services, but we have collected descriptions of them, and organized them according to various themes relating to the challenges of aging — so older adults and their families can find useful products they do not yet know about. 

Members of Tech-enhanced Life can search by categories, add reviews of the products, and see links to the manufacturer's websites where they can buy the product or access the resource.

The criteria for adding products and resources to this database is that we think they "look useful, noteworthy, and interesting", and have the potential to improve life for older adults and their families. We have evaluated some of these products, in which case you will see links to a detailed review and or to explorer discussions about the product on this page, or inputs from explorers in the comments.

If the listing does not include reviews or explorer discussions, then we have not evaluated it sufficiently to be able to recommend it or comment on how well it works. If you research this product or resource further, and especially if you try it out, please come back to this page and add your comments.
