Amazon currently has the second generation August Smart Lock available for just $129. That is good for $100 off of its regular price, and it is also $120 cheaper than the third generation lock that just launched a few months ago.
The August Smart Lock is a great lock to pick up and use in your home, as it does allow you to lock your door using your smartphone. Which means you are also able to give others a key without giving them a physical key. Now this is great because you can also revoke their key without getting an actual key back from them. So say you go on vacation and have someone watching your home, you can give someone guest access so they can get in and feed your pets and whatnot. But when you get back home, you can revoke their key and they no longer have access to your home. Pretty simple. August also has Alexa support, so you can use your voice to lock, unlock and check the status of the lock.
This item is also eligible for Amazon Prime's free shipping. Which includes free two-day shipping, and pretty cheap next-day shipping if you need it here extra fast.
