August, the company behind the popular Smart Lock solution, today has announced its very own Apple Watch app. In a blog post, August announced that the latest update to its iOS app adds support for Apple Watch and makes it possible to control your Smart Lock directly from your wrist.

First off, August Smart Lock on Apple Watch allows you to lock and unlock your device with just a “swipe and a tap.” You can also view your lock’s most recent activity from your wrist, including a log of who has entered and exited your home and when. Finally, the update also introduces the ability to receive instant notifications to Apple Watch whenever someone unlocks the door to your home.

We reviewed the August Smart Lock earlier this year and noted that it’s an easy way to secure your home and to replace your traditional house key. You can read that full review and watch the accompanying video here.

The latest version of the August app with Apple Watch support is available on the App Store now.
