Overview: The August Smart Lock HomeKit Edition attaches to your existing deadbolt
lock and lets you lock and unlock your door with your smartphone. With Smart
Lock, you no longer have to fumble for keys, as the Smart Lock unlocks the door
as you approach and locks it as you leave. You can grant temporary access to
others ("virtual keys"), and use your smartphone to keep track of who comes and
goes anytime of the day and night. Smart Lock replaces only the interior portion
of your deadbolt, allowing you to continue using your traditional key whenever
you want. It is powered by 4 pre-installed "AA" batteries.
Compatibility: August Smart Lock is compatible with standard deadbolt
locks that are mounted and operates independently of the door handle. It does
not work with integrated lock and handle or mortise deadbolts in which the thumb
latch and handle are on the same plate, nor is it compatible with rim
cylinder-style locks. Click
here for the August Deadbolt Compatibility List. To install the Smart Lock, you will need to remove the
interior portion of the deadbolt, and replace it with the Smart Lock unit.
Installation requires a standard Phillips screwdriver, and typically takes less
than 15 minutes.
Apple HomeKit Compatible: This version of the August Smart
Lock is enabled with Apple HomeKit, which provides exclusive features when used
with an iPhone or iPad (iOS 9+). For example, you can use Siri to lock or unlock
the door using a key phrase. Plus, if you have a 3rd or 4th generation Apple TV
within Bluetooth range of the Smart Lock, you can remotely operate the door
(with or without Siri) from anywhere using your iPhone.
Note: August Smart Lock is also available in a
non-HomeKit enabled version. Please see items
Smartphone Integration: The Smart Lock interacts with your smartphone
or tablet via Bluetooth Smart (Bluetooth v4.0) and the August Home app. The app
must be loaded to the phone of all users, including guests. As long as your
smartphone is range, you can lock or unlock the door from the app. Each time the
door is locked or unlocked by a user via the app, a notification is sent to
selected users, and the event is logged to the app.
Note: The August Home app is compatible with
iPhone, iPad, iPod
touch running iOS 8.0 or later and with
Android devices running Android 4.4
2 Factor Authentication: To keep your August Smart Lock and
account secure, August uses 2 Factor Authentication in order to access the app.
When signing up, you will need to validate both your email and phone number, and
a token is stored on your account and device. If you try to sign in on a new
device, you will have to authenticate your account using both your password and
with a code sent to either your email or phone number.
Smart Keypad: The August
Smart Keypad is an accessory for the August Smart
Lock. It attaches to the wall outside your home, and allows you operate the
Smart Lock without a smartphone. Unique codes can be generated for
each individual, including guests or service personnel. The unique codes tie
your guest's name to each entry so you can keep track of who comes and goes. The
Smart Lock and Smart Keypad can create a 24/7 log of who entered your home and
Smart Connect: The August
is an accessory for the August Smart Lock, and uses your home's Wi-Fi network
(802.11b/g/n, 2.4GHz) and Internet connection to control the Smart Lock from
anywhere using the August app. Connect plugs into a standard AC outlet, and
should be installed within 15 feet of the Smart Lock for optimal performance and
August Lock Users: There are several levels of users of the
August Home app. The Home Owner is the individual who originally set up the lock
and has access to all of the settings and can invite (and delete) guests. A Lock
Owner has all of the same access to the settings and guest lists. A Guest can
lock and unlock the Smart Lock at any time, but cannot change settings or invite
other guests. Access types for Guests include: Always, Recurring, and Temporary.
The account of each Owner or Guest can be set up whether or not to trigger
notifications when that specific user operates the lock.
