August Smart Door Lock Competitor.

Safe Distancing

August Smart Lock Pro

Smart Lock Pro (UK version here).

August smart lock is easier to install than other models because it keeps the exterior deadbolt. Therefore, the security of the lock depends on the existing deadbolt model. Only the interior assembly is replaced. When you’re near to the door, this lock senses your smartphone and unlocks it automatically. In the unfortunate event where the smartphone is not with you, you’ve the option of unlocking it with the existing mechanical key since the front lock is same as before.

It’s a very good choice for those who prefer to keep the existing deadbolt. But not so for new home owners or those who are looking for a newer and better deadbolt.

Where to Go From Here

Due to the international shipping costs and custom duties, it’s worth buying locally even when the price is slightly higher than overseas prices.
