SimpliSafe Integrates the August Smart Lock to Make Your Home More Secure
At ISC West in Las Vegas (April 11-13) August (ISC West booth #33067) is announcing a partnership to integrate SimpliSafe home security systems with August Smart Locks. The integration allows SimpliSafe customers to automate locking and unlocking their August Smart Lock and August Smart Lock Pro in sync with arming and disarming the SimpliSafe security system. This ensures that customers’ homes can be protected by both a locked door and monitored security system when they leave during the day and go to bed at night.
“Our mission is to make every home secure,” said Chad Laurans, SimpliSafe’s founder and CEO. “We’ve taken the time to work hand-in-hand with the August Home team to ensure that the integration offers not only convenience, but also the strongest, most reliable protection possible, building on our promise of a total home security platform.”
SimpliSafe has been revolutionizing the home security system industry since 2006. All of their security products are designed and manufactured in-house, which guarantees a high level of quality. SimpliSafe offers sensors, keypads, cameras, and alarms to keep your home protected.
Seamless Access Control & More Security
This partnership will add the much needed convenience aspect to home security systems. August Smart Products will allow people to check the status of their homes right from their smartphones, get real-time alerts of people approaching or entering the home, and will make it possible to control your home remotely, regardless of whether you’re at work or on vacation.
When customers disarm their home security system through the SimpliSafe Key Fob, Keypad or mobile app, their August Smart Lock Pro will automatically unlock to provide smooth access to their home. Similarly, when customers arm their security system, their August Smart Lock will lock, adding another layer of home protection. In addition, customers can control their system and locks from anywhere. Now when a guest needs to get in—like your dog-walker or the sitter—you can unlock your door and disarm your SimpliSafe system right from the mobile app, and then easily lock and re-arm the system.
“The integration with SimpliSafe combines state-of-the-art security with secure keyless entry to your home. With the touch of a button, users can now arm and lock or disarm and unlock their door, adding another layer of security and control to users’ smart home automation,” said Jason Johnson, co-founder and CEO for August Home.
The SimpliSafe and August Smart Lock integration is now available to all SimpliSafe customers subscribed to its interactive professional alarm monitoring plan. Integrating the August Smart Lock or August Smart Lock Pro with SimpliSafe requires an August Connect Wi-Fi Bridge to connect the Bluetooth lock to Wi-Fi.
The connection that the August Connect creates allows you to control your smart lock from your smartphone. It allows the Smart Lock Pro to transform into a remote door lock, so you can control it from your office, while you’re on vacation, or when you’re running errands!
