The first iteration of August’s Smart Lock began shipping back in 2014. Since then, the connected lock has improved with genuine HomeKit integration.
August is now selling its HomeKit-enabled Smart Lock on Amazon for $229.99. It’s available in a silver and “Dark Gray” color scheme, so you can find the perfect match for your home. The new version of the lock shares similarities with the first version, allowing owners to unlock and lock their door(s) with their iPhone.
Now, though, with full HomeKit integration, August’s Smart Lock can now connect to the other connected devices in your home, like light switches, thermostats, and more.
On top of that, Smart Lock owners can use Siri to lock their door (and unlock it). There is also support for scenes, which means you can set up multiple smart connected devices to activate, or deactivate, at the same time, with just a single voice command.
T’s worth noting that stock was limited when work on this article began, and by the time of publication stock for both the silver and dark gray models had run out. If you’re interested in the Smart Lock, though, hopefully stock will be refilled soon.
