Have you ever been on the way to the airport and suddenly been unable to remember if you locked the front door? Or alternately, have you ever been away from home and needed someone to get into your house with no hide-a-key?
You can put those problems behind you by getting an August Smart Lock Pro + Connect smart lock ($220.99), which turns your front door into a smart door. With this smart lock, you can lock and unlock your door from anywhere in the world, or grant keyless entry to family and friends or schedule access for home services without worrying about lost or copied keys. You’ve gotta love technology, eh?
The lock attaches easily to your existing deadbolt and relays status to an app you install on your phone. Thanks to the technology, you’ll know when your door is completely closed and locked. You’ll also be able to keep track of who comes and goes, and if you have an Alexa or Siri or Google Assistant, you can link that up for even easier access.
