Unlock and Lock your home, manage key-less entry for all users, and view event history from anywhere in the world with your August Smart Lock! The August Smart Lock is compatible with both Android and IOS devices. This makes the lock easily accessible on your smart phone and tablet. The lock comes silver or bronze and can link to Honeywell’s Total Connect 2.0. If you are a current customer of Shield Fire & Security ask us how you can add the August Smart Lock to your account by calling 702-570-6221 or check out our request a quote page.
Remotely Manage the August Smart Lock
The August Connect Wi-Fi bridge allows for remote management of your home. Remotely access your August Smart lock from anywhere through Honeywell’s Total Connect app or through the August app. You can lock or unlock the door, add/delete users, and assign access schedules to certain users.
When the August Smart lock is connected to Total Connect you can intertwine it with other devices. For example if you have a Video Skybell your visitors are video verified, and you can then proceed to unlock the door from the same app. Another customer favorite is having your door set to automatically unlock when you enter a certain distance from your house. This feature is called geo fencing and comes in handy especially when you are bringing in groceries.

No More Key Copying
Give access to family members, friends, service providers, etc. without ever making a copy of a key again. No more worrying about lost keys or someone just walking in unauthorized. You can manage it all from the touch of your phone. A notification is also sent every time someone unlocks or locks your door. Notifications keep you informed about who is coming and going and at what time. Parents find this perfect to see when their kids coming home from school.
Is Your Door Locked?
We have all had that moment of uncertainty when it came to locking our door. I used to find myself saying, “Did I lock my door? I was in a huge rush this morning.” If you are anything like me then this is a question you won’t ask yourself ever again. The August Smart Lock tells you when your home is unlocked from the convenience of your August App or Total Connect App. A notification can also be sent if you leave your geo-fence area (as mentioned earlier in this article).
There is also the auto lock option. Your August Smart Lock can automatically lock and unlock itself upon arrival and departure of your home. That makes things even easier because you never even have to pull out your phone or touch the lock.
No one has time to spend hours figuring out how to be a locksmith, and that’s what usually ends up happening when installing smart locks. Locks are finicky and only fit on certain doors. Shield Fire & Security has seen many locks. We install all different kinds of locks on a daily basis. In our experience the August Lock is the most simple to install. The August Lock just goes right over your dead bolt. This means almost anyone can install the lock.
***If you want the lock to intertwine with your third party app such as Total Connect you will need to contact your security provider.
