Secure access without keys

Link your August Home and Airbnb or HomeAway accounts, so guests automatically receive a secure virtual key or unique entry code after they book. No need for traditional keys that can be accidentally taken or copied. Better still, guest access expires at the end of the booking.

Worry-free checkout

With one tap in the August Home app or from the August Smart Keypad, guests can lock the door as they leave. Hosts even get an instant notification every time a guest locks or unlocks the door with the August Home app.
