With Black Friday just around the corner, we're within shouting distance of some stellar Black Friday August Smart Lock deals. In fact, you probably don't have to wait until the big day to score yourself some savings with a variety of retailers jumping the gun and getting out early with their Black Friday deals. With HomeKit deals galore, you might be able to snag something at less than retail right now.

August Smart Locks have long topped our list of the best smart locks and, with HomeKit support, you'll also find them on our roundup of the best HomeKit locks. Whichever platform you're using, August is a great choice. That being said, August Smart Locks aren't the cheapest option so finding a deal is always a good idea.

The best August Smart Lock is the latest, 4th-generation model. With a premium build quality and an installation that uses your existing deadbolt, it's a top choice for those that want to keep their existing keys. It doesn't need a bridge and lets you fully control it from your smartphone, give your friends and family access as needed, and set various automation. Our pals at Android Central put it through its paces in their August Smart Lock review, which is well worth a look if you're considering picking one up.

The 4th-gen August Smart Lock retails for $230, though we have seen it drop as low as $180 in the past. We'd say anything under $200 is a good deal. It comes in silver or matte black.

When will the Black Friday August Smart Lock deals begin?

While Black Friday 2021 doesn't kick off until November 26, it's pretty common to see deals start much earlier than that. If you're eyeing up an August Smart Lock deal this year, you should already be perusing the major retailers' sales as a lot of smart home gear is already on sale.

Many more sales will kick off during Black Friday week, that being Monday, November 22, so keep your eyes peeled for any additional deals then. Most sales will last through Cyber Monday on November 29, though with shipping and production issues galore this year, it may be better to shop sooner than later.

Where will the best Black Friday August Smart Lock deals be?

August products are available at all major retailers, and the deals tend to be fairly consistent across them all, which is great for you since you can get it from the most convenient store for you. Aspects like free shipping, in-store pickup, cashback, or tax savings may be the difference-maker if the prices are matched consistently.
