Examining The August Smart Lock More In-Depth

August Home, a leading Smart Lock provider, launched its second-generation Smart Lock on October 14, 2015. While millions of consumers immediately jump onboard, millions more were hesitant, because these devices are responsible for securing their most valuable asset, the home. There is always the concern that Smart Locks may not be able to provide the same level of security as a traditional deadbolt.

Many models cannot be put on the same level, because they offer a difficult installation, hit-or-miss performance and a lagging, confusing companion.
