The august locks work great with just the app, but being able to remotely control them is even better.

Pros: Can now remotely control locks from anywhere

Cons: You need 1 for each lock separately

Good Solution

This product is the perfect solution -- a "bridge" that allows you to control your August blue-tooth lock by wi-fi for those times that you're not within blue-tooth range.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Makes the August Smartlock accessible thru the August app when out of bluetooth range. When connecting thru the August Connect, the August Smartlock is NOT HomeKit compatible.

Pros:

Cons:

If you like products that work, this ain't for you.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I bought the whole outfit: Smart lock, Connect and Keypad. Only the keypad connected successfully. August support was totally unhelpful. I wish I had listened to the naysayers about this system: It's totally janky and unreliable. Great concept, pitiful execution.

Pros: Aesthetics

Cons: The system has way too many bugs, and technical support is weak.

Crutchfield response on 11/22/2016 Thanks for your review. I'm sorry the system didn't work out. We've set up a return for this order. Just a reminder - we offer our own lifetime technical support, so give us a call if you have any problems with gear you've purchased at Crutchfield.

1 question already asked

To optimize August Connect's always-on connection, one August Connect is currently needed for each August Smart Lock. It also requires that the Aug Connect is close to the lock. [ ramil  Oct 26, 2017 ]
