The added Connect Bridge helps your smart lock connect to Wi-Fi to not just enable this feature but also so you can monitor your front door with just your voice. Ask Alexa, Google, or Siri to lock and unlock your door or just check the status of your door. If you don’t already have an Amazon-enabled device, the added free Echo Dot (3rd Gen) in the bundle will do just that for you.

With added privacy measures, voice assistant compatibility, and automatic lock/unlock features, the August Smart Lock Pro is a great addition to your existing smart home.

If you think you need to upgrade your home's security, there's no better time to make the necessary purchase than now with this year's Prime Day deals finally online. Here's an offer from Amazon that you should consider -- the Yale Assure Lock for its cheapest price this year of $173, breaking the previous low of $180 after a $116 discount on its sticker price of $289. We're not sure if the smart lock's stocks will last through the end of Prime Day, so if you're interested, you should proceed with your purchase immediately so that you don't miss out.

Why you should buy the Yale Assure Lock
Even with the Yale Assure Lock 2 in the market and claiming a spot in our roundup of the best smart locks, the security features of the Yale Assure Lock make it a worthwhile investment, especially at its discounted price. It will replace your existing deadbolt with a smart deadbolt that's operated by a touchscreen keypad, which will eliminate the need for keys. There's usually more than one way to unlock a smart lock, and for the Yale Assure Lock, the first option is to type your code on the keypad. The second option is through your smartphone -- you just need to have it on you, and your door will automatically unlock.
