Amazon is having a big sale for Prime Day on all kinds of smart home equipment, like this August Smart Lock + Connect Wi-Fi Bridge combo. During Prime Day Amazon is discounting the August Smart Lock by $25.
You’ve already got the smart lights, the smart thermostat, and the smart speakers throughout the house. So why not keep things rolling with a smart lock? With the August Smart Lock and Connect Wi-Fi Bridge combo, you can set up entry into your home even if you’re not home. All without having to leave a key under a rock or under the door mat.
In terms of features, the August Smart Lock allows for keyless entry through the connection to your August account. Which is connected to the companion app on your smartphone.
You control the keyless entry no matter where you are. Whether you’re in the garage, the upstairs bedroom, or at work across town. Plus, the lock allows you to keep track of who enters the home. Whether you let them in, or if they have their own entry code.
The lock is also compatible with Amazon Alexa. Which means you can lock and unlock the door with just your voice. If you want things to be more secure then there are some things you can do. The lock alone is a good start, but you can also augment that even more. August has a separate keypad that requires you to punch in a key every time to unlock the door.
Or you can set up a secondary type of verification for every unlock. A biometric verification. With this enabled, the lock will require you to verify that it’s you either with your phone’s fingerprint sensor or facial recognition feature.
The lock is also pretty quick to install so you shouldn’t have to mess around with things for too long.
