Smart locks provide a valuable service for homeowners and renters alike — especially if you want to start building out an entire home automation system. When added to smart cameras, you can see who's at the door before opening it remotely. For more flexibility, be sure to purchase an August Wi-Fi Bridge so you can control your door locks from anywhere.

For most users, we recommend the August Smart Lock Pro alongside the Connect Wi-Fi Bridge. Buy them together to save money, then use the savings on one of the Smart Keypads. Anyway, you can't go wrong when trying to protect your home.
