Today, Comcast CEO Brian Roberts announced a new partnership and integration with August. For the first time, August will enable Comcast Xfinity subscribers to control access to their homes through three of Comcast’s most popular platforms – Xfinity Home, Comcast Xfinity Remote with Voice Control and the X1 Entertainment Operating System.
Starting this summer, Xfinity Home subscribers with an August Smart Lock and August Connect Wi-Fi bridge will be able to manage access to their home through a more seamless and personalized experience. Here’s how August will work with Comcast Xfinity’s smart home platforms:
- Xfinity Home – Control and check the status of your August Smart Lock through the Xfinity Home in-home touch screen console or remotely through a web-portal or the Xfinity Home mobile app on a smartphone or tablet.
- Xfinity Remote with Voice Control – Use voice commands to lock, unlock and check the status of your August Smart Lock.
- X1 Entertainment Operating System – Manage access to your home using a sophisticated on screen interface right on your television screen.
We are excited to integrate August’s home access technology with Xfinity Home and proud to be at the forefront of driving the next evolution of the smart home. Stay tuned for details on how the partnership will provide Xfinity Home subscribers with the best in class products and services they desire.
