It’s time to recognize Dad. We’re grateful for the way the fathers and father-figures in our lives have protected us, provided for us, made us laugh, offered us support and taken care of our families in the big and small ways. Thank you! Knowing dads often have a wealth of wisdom, we’ve asked the dads of August, Yale Home and ASSA ABLOY to share their top home-related tips, spanning security, working from home, spending time with family during quarantine and more. Check out some of their best advice below.Create the Perfect, Connected Home Office Jun 11, 2020 Remote work and telecommuting were a trend even before they became a necessity, and is the norm for plenty of professionals. But for some of us, we’re still adjusting to ways to be productive in our homes (as well as preparing for the long-haul), which begins with the right WFH setup. Here, we’ll delve into how to create a minimalist home office on a budget, necessities, and smart devices to boost efficiency and productivity. August Wi-Fi Smart Lock Now Available May 12, 2020 It’s time! The August Wi-Fi Smart Lock is now available for purchase. Our new flagship lock comes equipped with a built-in Wi-Fi connection and a brand new compact design the size of a standard doorknob (thanks to August co-founder and renowned designer Yves Béhar). While smaller in size, it still sports the same robust feature set that includes remote access, automatic locking/unlocking, 24/7 monitoring, integration with leading voice assistants and security & hosting systems, easy retrofit installation (no deadbolt replacement required!), and adherence to strict security & privacy policies. August’s Favorite “Spring Clean” Design Tips from DIY Designers Apr 17, 2020 Spring has sprung, bringing with it an opportunity to purge, clean, and declutter. The change in seasons presents an ideal time for a home refresh—goodbye cozy, hygge vibes, hello breezy and bold. Support Your Household and Community During COVID-19 – Starting at the Front Door Apr 01, 2020 With COVID-19 sweeping the globe, here at August we’re staying indoors and practicing “social distancing” to avoid getting sick or infecting others. While movement in and out of the home is limited right now, there are ways we can proactively protect those we live with — all starting with our front door.
