If you are planning on doing some upgrades or projects at home this summer, a good place to start is your front door. August Home’s Smart Lock Pro + Connect is a simple way to start integrating smart features at home. Installation is not complicated and only requires a screwdriver to attach the hardware to the existing deadbolt on the interior of your door. Once installed, the HomeKit-compatible August Smart Lock gives you access to an assortment of convenient entry/lock options and pre-sets from your mobile device, Apple Watch or any smart home platform without having to give up your traditional set of keys. We ran through some tips and tricks for using the August Smart Lock with Apple’s HomeKit platform on this week’s HomeKit Weekly.

Apple Watch users can now control their August Smart Lock or Smart Lock Pro (3rd Generation) from their wrist thanks to August’s recently introduced native app for Apple Watch. If you have HomePod (or any of the other major smart home speakers on the market), you can also now tell Siri to lock/unlock the door and check lock status.
