August Home has just announced its third generation smart lock, but its second generation smart lock is still a great one to pick up, and right now it is available for just $160. That's about $65 off of its regular price, and makes it a great purchase for those looking to make their home a bit smarter and easier to keep protected.
The August Home Smart Lock allows you to do things like unlock your door using your smartphone, as it connects over Bluetooth. This way, it'll work whether you have a WiFi connection or not. Of course, if the power is out, you can still unlock the door using a key like usual. The August Smart Lock is pretty interesting because it allows you to do things like grant other users access for a limited time. So if you are out of town, you could give access to whoever is watching your home while you're gone to take care of your pets and such, without having to give them an actual key.
