“Last night my neighbor had a small fire. I wasn’t home but got a notification that the doorbell was ringing and saw the police. I talked to the officers right from the Doorbell Cam. It worked amazingly!

“No need to break down the door. I buzzed the fire department right in.”

Later the police advised that the fire department would have needed to break in to access the fire if I hadn’t answered. Was soooo glad I had the August Smart Lock! No need to break down the door. I buzzed them right in.”

Wi-Fi Installation Tip:
The August Doorbell Cam requires a reliable Wi-Fi signal at your door to deliver an optimal experience. For most homes, a Wi-Fi router located within 10-15 feet of the door will deliver sufficient signal strength. If your Wi-Fi signal is weak or your Wi-Fi router is located further away, you will likely need a Wi-Fi extender to deliver an optimal August Doorbell Cam experience. Learn more.
