It’s been exactly one year since we shipped the first August Smart Lock. And in that year, we’ve been listening and paying attention to how it has become a part of your life. We see you use it in a variety of ways, and, as a result, we’re really excited to announce three new products — August Smart Lock – HomeKit enabled, August Doorbell Cam and August Smart Keypad. Joining these is a new service called August Access that will change the way you interact with your home, removing the barriers that exist with home delivery services and overall access, while keeping you in control every step of the way.
To make August Access a reality, we designed three new products, together with updates to the August app.
- Our next generation of the August Smart Lock is enabled with HomeKit, so you can now control your lock with your voice for the first time. Using Siri you can lock, unlock, and check the status of your door.
- The August Smart Keypad works alongside the August Smart Lock for easy entry that doesn’t involve a smart phone or traditional key. Unique codes are auto-generated for one-time or regular use.
- The August Doorbell Cam allows you to see and speak with visitors at the door from anywhere. It is equipped with a one-way, HD video and two-way audio to ensure privacy. Intelligent motion detection allows for capturing images of people at your door even if they don’t ring the bell. Because the Doorbell Cam acts as a Wi-Fi bridge, you can access your August Smart Lock from anywhere.
We’re excited to unveil our next step in bringing you more visibility and control than you ever have had around your door. It’s about your ability to fully manage access to your home, monitor activity, and interact with visitors at your door from wherever you are.
