    This August smart lock is a must have!

    |
    Posted .

    I purchased this August smart lock pro connect and it is one of my favorite "smart" home purchases! It will automatically lock when you close the door at different preset intervals. It can tell you if the door is ajar. You can remotely access the status of the door being locked or unlocked from anywhere so if you forgot to lock it you can lock it via the August app. It has geo fencing that will automatically unlock the door when you pull in your driveway and it connects or recognizes you are back on your home or work wifi network. You can send a digital key to anyone such as an electrician or heat and air service tech to allow them access to go in for repairs and you can lock or unlock it at any given time from the August app should family or guests arrive at your home.It also works with Amazon Alexa and you can ask Alexa to check the status of your front door and ask Alexa to "lock the front door". This August smart pro connect lock is one of the best investments I have made! I highly recommend it to anyone!!!

    I have purchased two, one for my sister and one for my self. I took a little longer time before I write this review, because I can discover more issues. So far the August smart lock gave me no issues and it's a great product. Before I install anything, I always go on YouTube to search and watch DIY of installation on any of products. I have installed August Smart Lock Pro+ for about a month now and the only issue I have is one error message. To warn me the lock has an locking issues, I make the deadbolt lock plate adjustment on the door frame and it works perfectly now. I took a little time to install the magnetic sensor inside the deadbolt lock insert plate by the door frame. I want to make a better look instead drill two screws holes and a sensor sticking outside the door frame. Please see the two pictures I attached. The only downside is if you decide to use the auto function to lock your door, please make sure you either have a key or your phone with you. Otherwise you will be lock outside of your home while door is closed. I found out if you want to open the door for someone else while away from your home, you will have to refresh the app before you can do so. That I don't like, otherwise it's a great product.

    Although skeptical, after several weeks, I find the AUGUST smart lock to be just what we needed. Note that there may be occasions when your door does not line up properly with the dead bolt. This will take time to adjust; (weather conditions also attribute to the door 'sticking'. Note it is NOT the unit. once you have identified the correct sleeve which adjusts to your existing unit, you are on your way. the app works great. BE MINDFUL that if you do not have your phone with you and decide to go out of the door, well, you may be looking for another way back inside if you have the auto lock on feature on. Overall, very pleased with this unit. Works well with Alexa. Did not use the screws to mount the sensor. If you use only the adhesive sticker that comes with the unit, it should be sufficient if you are concerned with putting holes into the door frame. Nice feature is that from the outside the existing hardware remains the same so you are able to maintain the original key lock.

    Setup was remarkably easy, made more challenging by myself not measuring anything. I should’ve looked at the size of the lock to ensure it would fit, instead I ended up having to Dremel out some metal siding on the door to get the unit flush and allow the wings to close. Entirely on me and not necessarily a fault of the device.

    The August Smart Lock was easy to install. It works well with Siri HomeKit and Alexa. I find the Apple Watch app finicky as to when it wants to work. I have been able to lock and unlock successfully using Siri through the Apple Watch. I especially like the auto lock feature. The only advice I can give is if you have to remove the device from your door for any reason, make sure you remove a couple of the batteries to power it down before you reattach to your lock. If you don’t, it will tell you the lock is jammed. I discovered that when I had to get my door refinished.

    August Smart Lock saved me so much time

    |
    Posted .

    Pros: • Installation easy done within 15-20 mins • Work right out of the box • App works great • Assigning access …no problem • Remote access works great • When I get to my door, didn’t need key…just open automatically • Able to see who’s going in and out of my house Cons: • Connecting to wifi could be better. Use lower frequency wifi than your 5g. • if your door isn't perfectly aligned, the lock will fail

    I bought this model because it is Apple HomeKit compatible. It was really easy to install. I have a new Schlage deadbolt but there were other options which looked easy too. Set up through the August app on my phone was quick and dare I say it again, easy. It works as advertised. So far I just use it to Auto Unlock as I approach the door. I didn’t need that before but very handy in a condo. It’s cool unlocking for other people too when needed.

    Fail

    With my main entrance on the second floor thru a narrow stairwell I often find myself struggling to unlock the door with my hands full. The August Smart Lock would’ve been my saving grace, however that is not the case. I purchased the latest version with the connect module got them installed in a matter of moments and was elated with my newfound ability to lock / unlock the door with my phone. Set the auto lock to 30 seconds and headed out the door locks oh what joy, I continue down the stairs into the car and receive push notice that the lock was in away mode and would unlock upon my return pure joy. So of course I go on a shopping spree relieved that my entry would be keyless. Return home gather up way too much stuff head upstairs go to open door and it’s LOCKED. Reverted back to haphazardly setting stuff on wet landing to retrive my archaic key for entry. Determined I reinstalled the properly installed lock, checked signal at three locations placing Connect unit at best one and headed out. Door lock and unlocked this began the 50/50 phase with lock operating sparadically. Went to website impossible to speak with human was escalated by computer. It has been 3 days with no response all the while the lock functions at 30% success-unacceptable for such a simple task.

    Frustration Saver!

    Posted .

    I've been looking for some kind of smart lock for some time now. August Smart Lock Pro was the only one that met my main criteria. My main problem is that my wife will open the front door but forgets to lock it afterwards. The August Lock solves that problem, and allows me plenty of flexibility. I had considered Yale locks as they were highly recommended by co-workers. I have Schlage locks all around my house and as far as I could tell, I couldn't re-key the Yale lock to the Schlage key. So I considered the Schlage Sense/Connect. Unfortunately, they didn't look to support Bluetooth entry without third party products (like an Apple TV) and the programming just seemed too cumbersome. August locks, in general, seem to address all of these issues quite easily. Installation begins by installing the August app on your mobile device. It walks you through the steps to remove the old thumbturn, install the August backplate, selecting the right adapter for your brand's deadbolt tailpiece, installation of the August Smart Lock, installation of the doorsense module and then calibration of the system. They really thought of everything, even including a piece of tape to hold the exterior lock in place. Once installed, the Auto-Lock feature was very easy to setup and allows you to change the amount of idle time before it Auto Locks. While there is an Auto-Unlock feature, I tried it for a few days and decided it wasn't for me. This feature is dependent on your phone connecting to your home wifi network. Most of the time, I enter the house through my garage, so the front door lock unlocks unnecessarily. This August Smart Lock Pro + Connect package includes the August Connect device which allows wifi devices access to the August Lock. For instance, I have my Echo Dot and my Google Home Mini able to check on the lock status and lock the door. The Echo Dot goes a step further and allows me to unlock via voice command with a security pin, but the Google Home Mini is not able to (yet). While I can give other people access to my lock via Bluetooth invitations, I opted to purchase the August Keypad accessory. It's simple to set up and allows me to give out unique PINs to my family members. This is also helpful since not all members of my family have a phone. If not for the August Keypad, an outsider really cannot tell you have a Smart Lock device installed. I find that to be a nice feature. It allows me the convenience of a smart lock but does not flaunt technology to an outsider. If I were forced to name a couple flaws, I would pick on the August Connect device. It is supposed to be plugged into a wall outlet within 30 feet (15 feet optimally) from the smart lock. I considered another August lock for the door to my garage. If I do get one, I probably will not have the August Connect features available. I just can't see the point of purchasing another August Connect device for a secondary door. Another flaw, when using a physical key, the key is harder to turn because you have to overcome both the deadbolt and August Lock mechanics. It's not an issue for my family, but it could be an issue for people with arthritis. The August Smart Lock Pro is larger than I expected. We joke that it's a tuna can on our door. Surprisingly, it is the same diameter of a Starkist Tuna Can (I just checked) and is just shy of two tuna cans deep. Operationally, you rotate the knurled outer ring one way to unlock and the opposite way to lock. For further integration into my budding smart home system, I connected the August Smart Lock Pro to my SmartThings hub. This is done via Z-Wave connection. The process is straighforward and I was up and running pretty quickly. The main functions of lock/unlock and battery level are immediately available in the SmartThings app. I happened to purchase this package while on sale. The sale price brings it in line with competing products. I would recommend this product even without the sale price. I think its features bring it far beyond the competing products. As for solving my main problem, I found it easier to pay the money for this August Smart Lock Pro than to re-program my wife to lock the door (aka Pick Your Battles). ;-)

    Could Be Improved

    I have to say, the packaging of this product is superb, for whatever that's worth. I'm still trying to figure out what I can use the nifty box for. The lock and door sensor was fairly easy to install, but not without some issues. The instructions are decent and it didn't require any special tools. The first issue that I had was that the lock had problems engaging and, to a lesser extent, disengaging. I came to realize that I had been pulling my door when turning my key or pushing it when using the knob. So for the August lock to work I had to modify my door frame and strike plates a bit. The other issue was connectivity: I had to find the perfect place to plug in the hub so it had good proximity to the lock and also wifi. Day to day the lock works fairly well. I was a bit surprised at the feel of it when turning it manually: I expected more of a ball-bearing, smooth feel, instead it sort of feels like a sand-filled gear. Now, the Achilles heal of most smart home products: the app. I like the part of the app that shows the status of my lock and door, and the fact that I can lock/unlock it with just a tap. I love the auto-unlock feature, when it works. I would say that about 9 out of 10 times it works well. It's those moments when I'm standing at my door after a long day at work deciding whether I should dig in my pockets for my phone or my keys that I just shake my head and sigh, much the same way I do those times that Alexa doesn't want to turn on my TV. The bigger issues I have with the app is flexibility of control. I can set the lock to autolock after I close the door or x minutes of being unlocked, but that's the extent of it. What I really would like to do is say, lock the door after x minutes when I'm home and lock automatically when I'm away. Considering the app already has location permissions on my phone this can't be too hard. Finally, there's the Alexa-integration. There are two Alexa skills: August Smart Home and August Home. August Home can list locks and check their status, but having to say "Alexa, tell August to lock the front door" is cumbersome. August Smart Home is better in that you simply say "Alexa, lock the front door". Why these couldn't be combined into one app is beyond me. Overall, I'm happy with the product, but I hope that August updates the app to allow for more flexible scheduling.

    This smart lock replaced the deadbolt of my existing lock. What I like about it is that the exterior part of the deadbolt (with the keyhole) remains the same so you can always revert to using a key in case your batteries die or other unforeseen issues. Installation was extremely easy. The app walks you through step-by-step so it is very easy to follow. I would say the installation was only a couple minutes (hardware); the software part took a little longer, but very easy. Once installed, I was able to connect the lock to my WiFi and I was up and running. I also added the Connect so I could control this lock remotely (outside of my home network). The installation of the Connect device was seamless. I love the auto-unlock/lock feature. When I come home, the locks automatically unlocks. After 30 seconds, it locks itself. Very hand when you have your hands full when you come to the door - no more fiddling with keys. I was able to add my wife as an "owner" to the lock. She had to set up her own August account and log in on her phone using her own credentials. Very easy. I have unlocked the door remotely only a couple of times for family members, but it has always worked perfectly. One thing to note: you need to make sure you door closes fully and the deadbolt is lined up otherwise the lock won't be able to engage. During more humid months, my front door need a small "shove" to get the deadbolt to line up, so this is something I will need to address prior to the weather warming up. If the lock doesn't engage fully, I do get an alert on my phone that shows the lock is jammed. The outer ring of the lock can be manually turned instead of unlocking using the app. This is handy so you don't "need" your phone to unlock. In this case too, it will auto-lock after 30 seconds. I also connected the lock to my Alexa devices. In order to unlock the door using voice you have to set up a pin, which I did not do since I will not be using my voice to unlock (yet anyway). Locking is simple. Ask Alexa to lock your front door (or whatever you named it) and voila! You can also ask Alexa "Is my front door locked?" She replies, "Checking..." then she tells you the lock status. Nice little feature to have. Alexa integration was also simple. Overall, I love this lock. This is something that has been on my whishlist for a while and I am glad I chose August.

    This product allows consumers to use their existing locks and it is simple to install/ setup. I have been impressed with the product since version one which is why I became a vendor. I bought this from Best Buy only because by some fluke they were selling it cheaper than I could get it direct from the manufacturer. Most electronic locks at the consumer level are cheaply made Grade 3 or 2, (3 being the worse). The August Smart lock allows consumers to continue using their commercial Grade 1 or High Security locks (with a certified locksmiths help), and still get all the benefits of electronic features. I no longer have to tell my clients, "sorry but you will have to downgrade your security to take advantage of the Smart features available, or you can spend thousands more to secure your home with commercial electronic solutions". While it is true that the August add-on products are built with plastic parts they don't compromise the integrity of the original lock in anyway. I use one on my own front door with a Grade 1 deadbolt and so far I have not had any issues unless you count the few times I locked myself out due to forgetting my phone or key. The problem has been easily solved by adding on the wireless keypad that August offers. The only reason I rated 4 stars is due to the price. Honestly it's a lot to pay to add convenience to a cheap G2 or 3 lock when consumers can just buy a full lock with electronics built-in. If you already have an investment in G1 commercial locks or are looking to upgrade your security, the August solution is a great compliment to higher end locks. I also appreciate all the features of the free app which allows to automatically lock when I leave and unlock the door when I return.

    Easy to install and use

    I was looking for a smart lock that would (1) automatically unlock when I return home so that I don’t have to fumble with keys, a fob, a phone, or anything else to unlock it, (2) still offer the option of unlocking/locking via a traditional key, just in case all else fails. This lock fit the bill. If you already have a traditional deadbolt in your door then the installation is extremely easy. I’ve found that the August app works very well. It is effectively able to detect when I or any other member of my household arrives home and unlock the door. One thing to consider is how to lock the door when you leave. Using traditional key is an option (but sort of defeats the point). Door can be set to auto lock (which is a cool feature if it fits your workflow but for me is just a great way to eventually lock myself out of my house). Currently, I typically use voice commands via Siri. This is effective and so far seems generally convenient; however, I may purchase the August keypad in the future which I believe offers one-button locking. I’ve found the ability to lock/unlock via third-party automations to be somewhat limited (assuming this is for security reasons). For example, you can trigger lock action via Apple HomeKit, but not IFTTT. On the other hand, ability to trigger other actions (ie turn on lights) when door is unlocked/locked seems to be robustly supported by other systems.

    I bought two August smart locks with key pads but I return one lock and one key pad only because one lock was way too big for my beautiful walnut finished front door. Felt the silver color was too much of a eye sore and this lock needed more of an array of colors to match front doors. This lock could have a a simple cover to allow for more door colors much like ring has for their door bell cameras. This size of the lock is just way too big. It looks ok on my back door but not my front door. The software is very good and it easily sets up with alexia and google voice. My exchange lock ( Schlage) is smaller and flatter and integrates onto the door much better but I had a very hard time to pair Alexia with the August door lock on the back door and Schlage on the front. I could only use Yonomi app with Schlage and also August app together.

    The three star rating is a compromise between 2 stars for one aspect and 5 stars for another. I really want to love this lock but just can't quite get there. I'm a techie geek when it comes to home automation. I have several Echo's, Echo show, fire sticks, fire cube, wifi light switches, ring cameras and security system, etc. I've been wanting to add this smart lock to the house but wasn't about to pay almost $300 for it. TA-DA...cyber Monday comes around and picked it up for $119.99. Of course my local store was out of it so I had to drive 40 minutes each way to a store that had it in stock to pick it up. I can tell you this, had I paid full price for it I definitely would have returned it, but for $120 I'll keep it around. Let's start with what I do like about it. The main reason I purchased this was being able to remotely monitor that the door is locked because my daughter has a habit of not locking the door behind herself when she's home alone. Plus, I get notification through the app when she gets home so I don't have to rely on her remembering to text me saying she got home ok. For those two reasons I'd give it a 5 star rating....but.... When it comes to the automated part it's hit or miss. Sometimes the lock will auto unlock for me when I pull in the driveway, sometimes it won't. I have an android phone and apparently this lock has sketchy issues with the android platform. Prior to this lock we had a digital keypad deadbolt which was quick and easy to use unless it was raining cats and dogs, then you got drenched punching in the numbers. Well if this lock doesn't auto unlock for you be ready to either get out your keys or unlock it through the app. Kind of a hassle if you ask me. I ended up going out and purchasing the keypad to pair with this lock because I do not want be messing around with my phone or keys during a downpour. For this reason I would give it a two star rating. I've read some horrible reviews on the August keypad that works with this lock but I just installed it today so I can't give it a fair review yet. Is worth paying $280? ABSOLUTELY NOT. Is worth paying $200 lock? NOPE. Is it worth $120? Yeah, that's about where it should be price wise since it can't fully deliver on it's promise. If it could do what it's supposed to every time then it would be worth the higher price, but until then it's just average at best with a couple nice "piece of mind" features.

    This is a great smart lock, it's convenient and easy to use. My apartment door doesn't really support smart locks, but I was still able to tape the metal plate of this lock in position and it's been working great!

    Make sure it will fit on your door!

    I love the August lock. Ended up having to return this model (Smart Lock Pro) and instead purchased the regular Smart Lock (2019 model). Both work the same and connect to WiFi using the August Connect device (included in both packages I purchased). The Pro model is rather large (significantly larger than a typical deadbolt; my guess is a little smaller than a softball). For our front door, the molding protrudes preventing the Pro from fitting (the side clasps could not be fully extended to mount it). Options were to either modify the door or get another product. The regular (capsule shaped) Smart Lock fit better for us. If your door is flat on the inside, either should work fine. Installation was easy. I had a question about calibrating the deadbolt position - called August tech support and the tech actually used FaceTime to guide me through it all using a demo product (so I could see her do it and she could see it work at my house). Really great customer service.

    Get spoiled

    I bought this to replace an August lock gen 2 that went bad. I was really mad and I almost went back to a regular lock but the family is so spoiled with the use of a smart lock that I ended up buying this one. I can say it’s faster and more reliable than the previous version. The batteries seems to last a bit longer but it’s hard for me to say for sure. HomeKit doesn’t let you to automatically unlock the door when you arrive but it’s easily done with a loophole. The lock will automatically unlock when we arrive home. No need to unlock the phone or wait until the Bluetooth connects. We really like this lock. And I like that this one won’t lock the door if the door is open. It comes with a sensor for the door frame that lets the lock knows if the door is close or if it’s ajar/open.
