AUGUST Smart Lock

Next up in our series of blogs introducing the products and technology that we are including in our Smart Homes, August Smart Locks®.

Controlling who enters and exits your home is a basic tenet of home security. Up until recently, you had to patrol whether the doors are locked, and make extra keys so that everyone in the house had a key. But you also have to deal with lost keys, forgetting to lock the doors, and an uneasy sense that you weren’t quite sure who was in your house and when.

August Smart Lock

August Smart Locks® is a true game-changer. It offers unprecedented peace of mind, allowing you to use your smartphone as your key and your own personal bouncer. With these smart locks, you can lock and unlock your door and keep track of who comes and goes – all from your phone. You can give digital “keys” with controlled and timed access to who you want, when you want. Meaning you never have to worry about who has a key to your home again.

August Smart Locks let you use your voice to ask Amazon Alexa (or Siri or the Google Assistant) to lock your door. (Like maybe when you’ve already settled into bed and have that “Did I lock the door?” moment.) It also has an innovative auto-lock/auto-unlock feature that automatically locks the door behind you when you leave, and automatically unlocks it as you approach the house!

August Smart Locks also keep a 24/7 log of who enters and exits your home. Since each user has a unique key, you can tell who is or isn’t home, and what time they came or went. You can issue limited access keys, allowing guests or workers access for a few minutes or a few weeks.

August Smart Lock

The August Smart Lock is installed on the interior side of a standard deadbolt, so your exterior hardware looks like a normal lock. You can still use your keys, but don’t have to worry if you forget them.

With August Smart Locks you are the key master, and have unprecedented peace of mind.
