How Smart Locks Work

Smarter home access

Smart locks are an upgrade to your existing door lock and have added features such as keyless entry, guest access control, and automatic lock and unlock functions.

With August, you are always in control of your front door, no matter where you are, right from your phone. Our smart locks work to help you keep the bad guys out and let your friends and family in.
