The Convenience of Personal Entry Codes

Want to be sure the kids got home safe from school? Perhaps you want a way to let your house cleaner in at the same time every week? Or maybe at the end of the day you just want to go for a run without your phone or keys in tow. Link your August Smart Keypad to your August Smart Lock to make controlling access to your front door even easier.

Nothing up my sleeve

We carry our smartphones with us just about everywhere, but sometimes you just need to untether. You want to head out on a run without anything extra to weigh you down. The August Smart Keypad lets you walk out, lock the door with one touch and when you return unlock your August Smart Lock with your personal entry code.

Know it all

The Smart Keypad also comes in handy for kids who don’t have a smartphone. Set them up with their own personal entry code. If the kids come home before you get off of work, no need to worry – know they got home safe and sound. With the August Smart Lock and Smart Keypad you get an alert every time your kids use their entry code to unlock the door.*

You can come in, but only when I say you can come in!

Whether it’s giving your house cleaner access at the same time every week, an Airbnb guest needing access for the duration of their stay or a neighbor coming in to feed the cat while you’re on vacation, the August Smart Keypad makes it simple. August Smart Lock owners can choose to assign temporary, recurring and always on entry-codes for increased control over access to a home or short-term rental property, from the August app.

  • Temporary entry code: A time-bound entry code that allows access for a specified time period and automatically expires. Great for guests in for the weekend, short term rentals or home services like letting the plumber in when you’re not home.
  • Recurring entry code: A weekly entry code that allows access for a specific time period that repeats weekly. Convenient for cleaners or dog walkers who come to your home on a regular schedule.
  • Always On entry code: Works all the time until the Owner disables the entry code.
