While we remain excited to bring this product to more customers, we are aware of some performance challenges in specific user environments. When you purchase an August product, you trust us with the most important parts of your life: your home and your family. We value your trust greatly and it is our top priority.

    Today is the day we’ve all been waiting for — our wire-free doorbell camera, the August View, is now available! By adding View to your entryway, you’ll be able to set up a virtual window to your front door and make it smarter and more secure. With View, you can simply open up the August app and see exactly what’s in front of your entryway: catch every visit from houseguests, delivery folks, unwanted porch pirates, and more — nothing and nobody will get past you anymore.

    August View allows you to stream crisp, realistic video of your doorstep directly on your phone and enjoy two-way audio that allows you to have real-time conversations with guests as if you were there in person. The August View also features instant motion alerts, on-demand live video streaming, zoomable video, 8 different interchangeable faceplate designs, and much more. And since View pairs with all August and Connected by August smart locks, you’ll be able to see who’s at your doorstep and also let them in — from anywhere.

    We understand that our customers have varying needs and requirements for their doorbell cameras, so will be offering 3 separate subscription plans to support the scalable levels in which our August View will be used. With the Basic Plan, customers will be able to watch live video from their doorbell, have real-time 2-way audio conversations with guests and access to previews. In order to watch full video recordings, customers will need to upgrade to Premium ($2.99/month) and Premium Plus ($4.99/month) plans, which will allow them to watch full videos for up to 15 days or 30 days, respectively. Our current Doorbell Cam Pro customers will be able to keep their existing subscription plan.
