About the August Wi-Fi Smart Lock
A sleeker smart lock
A sleeker smart lock
August has been making great smart locks for years, but they've taken a big leap forward with this new fourth-generation model. It has Wi-Fi built-in, so it doesn't require a separate Connect bridge to enable the juiciest smart features. It's also smaller than previous versions, so it can fit more doors — both physically and aesthetically. Installation is still as simple as fitting it onto your existing single-cylinder deadbolt hardware.
The August app's activity feed shows you what's happening at home at a glance.
With geofencing enabled, you can simply approach the door with your smartphone on your person, and it will automatically unlock. You can also set it to automatically lock as you leave.
If you prefer less-automated methods, you can lock and unlock the door — from wherever you are — using the August app on your phone or Apple Watch. And because the lock works with your existing deadbolt, you can still use your old keys to gain entry.
Control it with your voice
This lock is compatible with all the major voice assistants (sold separately) so you can lock, unlock, or check the lock status with your choice of Siri, Google Assistant, or Amazon Alexa. Unlocking the door with your voice assistant may require a verbal PIN code, so this one is best done out of earshot of strangers.
Expand your system
The August app's activity feed lets you keep track of comings and goings, but if you want to be able to see and communicate with guests, pick up a video doorbell. And if you'd like to grant easy access to residents, guests, or contractors, you can install the August Smart Keypad in your doorway for secure, code-based entry into your home.
