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. While this may be true in some cases, the August Smart Lock is integrated with retrofitted physical hardware, which basically means that it works with the existing deadbolt.
When searching for a solution that will offer reliability and convenience, while securing the front door, there is no doubt that the August Smart Lock can provide these necessities and so much more. Many models cannot be put on the same level, because they offer a difficult installation, hit-or-miss performance and a lagging, confusing companion.
