The new August Wi-Fi Smart Lock from August Home – now available for purchase – is 45-percent smaller in volume and 20-percent slimmer than the August Smart Lock Pro, yet still delivers the same advanced features, functionality and security.
From convenient access sharing and remote management to automatic locking/unlocking and 24/7 monitoring to strict security and privacy policies, it provides users with complete control over and insight into their front door’s activities, from anywhere in the world.
The new smart lock provides a smoother turning mechanism and its face offers softer surface transitions and rounded edges, while the refined, textured ridges surrounding the lock invite tactility when the lock is manually rotated. There is also a new August badge that visually helps users identify the device’s lock status.
“We’re always looking to explore how far we can push front door access, and the next frontier we wanted to tackle was fitting all the benefits of an August Smart Lock into a more discreet, yet beautiful package,” said Jason Johnson, co-founder of August. “Designing and building this new compact smart lock that offers as many capabilities as it does was no easy feat, so we are extremely proud to be able to provide our current and future customers with the best available product on the market.”
August’s full suite of integrations is available through the August Wi-Fi Smart Lock, including those with Airbnb, Samsung SmartThings, SimpliSafe, Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and Apple HomeKit. Its built-in Wi-Fi connection eliminates the need for customers to pair it with an external bridge for remote access, simplifying the setup process even further. All one needs to do is pair it with the August App to secure, monitor, and manage access to their home from their mobile phone.
August Wi-Fi Smart Lock can be purchased for $249.99 MSRP at August.com and Best Buy USA. It will be available at additional retailers starting May 17.
