Amazon and Best Buy have the lowest prices for two August smart home door locks during a limited time sale. August was one of the first smart door lock companies designed specifically for smart home convenience, security, and DIY installation.
Both August smart locks work with your existing door and deadbolt hardware, and you still can use your existing keys. In most cases installation should take about 10 minutes and the only tool you’ll need is a screwdriver.
The August locks on sale have silver finishes and use the latest, third-generation technology. Once you configure either lock with your smartphone, you can use the August app to lock and unlock your door and track entries and exits. With August’s DoorSense feature you can check the door’s status via the app. You also can configure the locks to lock automatically when you leave and unlock when you return, as long as you have your smartphone with you.
You can assign keyless access codes for visitors, friends, and delivery or service people for specific periods of a short as a few minutes. Even if you’re on a business trip and need to give someone access in an emergency, you can do it easily from the August app.
Both locks work with August Connect, a Wi-Fi bridge that extends internet access to your locks via your home wireless network. Connect enables lock control and monitoring from any location with internet access. You can also receive notification alerts when someone enters or exits the door with the August Lock.
