Amazon’s Cyber Monday deals for August Home smart locks are tough to pass up

Smart locks don’t come cheap. Most of the notable ones fetch for at least $100 when they’re new, so when something comes around that discounts the price to nearly half the cost, it’s not to pass up! For Cyber Monday, Amazon has several deals going on for various smart home gadgets, but the deals for a couple of August Home smart locks are outstanding when you consider they’re discounted by more than 50%.

Those looking to upgrade to a smart lock, Amazon slashed the price of the August Home Lock (third generation) down to $55 for Cyber Monday. That’s a steep discount considering that it normally sells for $150. Whereas most smart locks look bulky and require homeowners to completely replace the deadbolt and lock, the August Home Lock simply goes over your existing deadbolt and you get to keep your lock and keys. At $55, it’s a steal because you can now unlock/lock your door using your smartphone. However, you will need to purchase the Wi-Fi bridge if you intend on remotely accessing it and plan to integrate it with other third-party devices.

Alternatively, Amazon has the August Smart Lock Pro priced at $119 during Cyber Monday — a savings of $161. This is yet another unbelievable deal because it comes with the Wi-Fi bridge. The circular sized smart lock has a high-quality design, simple installation, and voice control with Alexa, Siri, and Google Assistant. Sure, it’s double the cost of what Amazon is offering for the other smart lock, but we can’t stress the fact that there’s no additional purchase for the Wi-Fi bridge. The savings of not having to buy that separately makes this deal equally attractive.

If you’re looking to expand your smart home, there are several other deals going on right now for Cyber Monday. Below, you’ll find some phenomenal deals that will complement the August Home smart locks. Instead of relying on an app, why not pair it with a smart speaker for voice commands? Not only that, but security cameras will also help to ensure that whoever comes through your door is an invited guest.

The end of the calendar year is often when we reflect on all the big announcements, new product launches, and huge advancements in the home technology sphere. While there have been a few notable concepts, gadgets, and ideas that will make 2021 memorable, the year might be notable more for all the stuff we didn’t get.
Cool smart home technology
When it comes to progress in 2021, there were a handful of notable advancements. One of the most tangible and useful is artificial intelligence (A.I.) in the home, and we saw it in products like iRobot’s new Roomba j7+ vacuum robot.

Artificial intelligence for the home
iRobot rolled out a host of object recognition features that make its robot vacuum more useful since now it won’t get caught on things as much. A new camera built into Roomba j7 can ‘see’ and avoid specific objects like cords, cables, and socks, and even pet poop, so there’s no more coming home to unpleasant surprises or half-finished cleanings. iRobot (and to be honest, other robot vacuum and mop manufacturers are also doing this too) has been training its bots to be smarter and more adaptable to us humans in the home, since we can be forgetful and careless when it comes to leaving hazards in the way of a fresh floor sweep.
Biometrics everywhere
If it wasn’t A.I. infiltrating our smart homes, it was biometrics. We saw smart fingerprint-enabled padlocks and bike locks become more common, like those from BenjiLock. The beauty of using a fingerprint is that you never need to worry about remembering keys. Unlike PINs or combinations, you can’t forget your fingerprint. Biometric access is also used on many smart door locks including those made by Ultraloq and Eufy and the convenience can’t be understated. We covered the best of them all in our best smart lock roundup.
