Great 'WHEN' it works... Posted by: from: scottsdale, az on I added three of these to 3 HomeKit versions of the lock. Also grabbed a pin pad for one of the doors. All the other devices have been working great but these August Connects can be wildly inconsistent. I have two of them that are plugged no more then 5-7 feet away yet will alternate losing connectivity at least once a day. I do doubt it's my wifi network as nothing else exhibits inconsistent behavior on the network. Setup was also troublesome as for each of the three connect's, setup didn't connect properly initially and required a hard reset of the system to get going. As far as when, it's working, I.e., when it's connected, it's worked everytime as advertised. There is in fact a delay to initiate a wifi lock/unlock but wasn't to a 'deal breaker' level for me personally, especially when considering what it is having to do(wifi to Bluetooth crossover). If you can keep it connected, it's a great device to have to complement the lock. For me, that's been a big 'if'. My recommendation, try it for a week, but save that receipt.

Good if you have august door lock Posted by: from: Huntington beach,ca on Essentially you need an august lock to go with it. Without this device I had to be close to unlock my doors, but this helps with Amazon echo voice control. Also able to unlock from anywhere. Best Buy price was the same as other websites and I rather buy from a trusted source. I would recommend this product but august lock system by itself is not always reliable. There would be times where door wouldn't unlock. However it's become a rare occasion where it doesn't work, not sure if an update fixed any issues.

Must have addition to august Posted by: from: on This works great with august lock system. I saw som bad reviews somewhere but you have to read instruction in detail for this to work. E.g do not open app again in front of your door if you want door to unlock, also if your phone dies or you reset your door won't auto open when you get close to door. Need to have app running in background, works amazing with echo/Alexa. T won't open the door using voice but locks door with no issues, good security feature if not anyone loud enough can unlock your doors.

Great gadget Posted by: from: on This item is a must have if you own an August lock. Performs as expected no issues. If I had any complaints it's why isn't this included with the lock itself or somehow integrated into the lock? Other than that great product.

Add-on WiFi connector for August Lock Posted by: from: on Well, it does what it's meant to, allowing remote access to the August electronic lock. It works, I am able to lock/unlock the door from my phone wherever I happen to be. It does not allow access to the lock programming, however, such as adding an additional code to the lock. So far, I can only do that in person over bluetooth. Like all modern electronics, there's minimal documentation.

Slow but Reliable Posted by: from: on I really liked my august lock so I decided to buy the August connect so that I could ensure my door was locked throughout the day and also let guests enter an exit in a timely and unobtrusive manner. The August Connect lets me do this but is very very slow to connect too. In the app you have to click the remote connect button and then wait around 20-30 seconds for the connect to "connect" with the August lock. Also the connect is only 1 foot away from the lock and around 5 feet away from my router. Overall, it is a reliable product but pretty slow.

Essential equipment that should have been included Posted by: from: on If you really want to get the most out of your August Smart Lock, this is really an essential piece of equipment - so much so that it should be included with the lock itself. You can use the lock without the August Connect and it will work fine, but adding the Connect provides Smart Home integrations as well as unlocks (no pun intended) the features of the August system that are probably most appealing to consumers (remote access, monitoring, alerts, etc). Without it, you can only take advantage of a fraction of the locks capabilities. That said, we have installed almost the full August ecosystem - lock, keypad, and connect - and, after two months, we are pretty happy with it. It installs easily, is easy to use, and has been pretty reliable.

Not worth the time... Posted by: from: on The whole point of the August Connect is to allow you to lock / unlock anywhere you are. This probably would have worked if it actually stayed connected to the wi-fi signal. I have other connected home products and there were no issues with them so it couldn't have been my internet. The product would connect and then disconnect later. Not really what I was looking for when trying to create a connected home..
