How to Open Your Door From Your Phone
The August Smart Lock is a secure, simple, and social way to manage your front door. It’s a lock that fits right onto any existing deadbolt, and is controlled from your phone. Yep, you can open your home using just your smartphone or computer, even if you’re traveling!
Though at first keyless technology seems a little worrisome or hackable, it is actually way more secure than keys that can easily get lost or codes that can be copied.
You can see a log of everyone who’s entered and exited your home, and you can control how long people have access to your house. For example, if your cleaning person always comes on Tuesdays at 1pm, you can allow that person in at that specific time each week.
Like Kevo, August has an Auto-Unlock feature, meaning the lock senses your approach and magically unlocks your door for you, so you don’t even have to reach for your phone.
Designed by Jambox designer Yves Behar (you know we love our Jambox), August boasts a sleek, minimalist aesthetic that looks like the perfect mix of modern and futuristic. We really love that it fits over any deadbolt, making installation take as little as 10 minute!
