Maybe the August Smart Lock is not something Fort Knox will be using any time soon but a smartphone is now a smart key—and more. Lock and unlock your door, create virtual keys for guests and keep track of who comes and goes, all from your iOS or Android smartphone.
Never copy a key again. Create virtual keys for family and guests. Choose to grant access for a few weeks, a few hours, a few minutes, or even specific dates and times. Delete guest access any time in an instant.
No more fumbling for keys. August Smart Lock auto-locks behind you for peace of mind and automatically unlocks as you approach. Turn on or off whenever you want.
A 24/7 activity log tracks who enters and exits your home. And with unique keys for each user, you’ll always know who opens your door and when.
August Smart Lock works with the free August Home app to create keys, grant access, view the activity log, and more, available for Android™ and iOS®.
You can even use your Apple watch to lock/unlock your door, view your activity log, and receive instant notifications.
Your exterior door hardware stays exactly the same. The August Smart Lock replaces only the interior side of your standard deadbolt.
