Amazon has dropped $30 off of the August Smart Lock Pro + Connect bundle, bringing the price down to just $249. That makes the Smart Lock Pro a great gift for anyone on your holiday shopping list this season.
The August Smart Lock Pro + Connect were just announced a few months ago and have only been available for a short time, so it's surprising to see them already discounted, but definitely nice to see. The August Smart Lock Pro is the third-generation smart lock from August, and it's really easy to install. August will walk you through installation, but you basically just remove the inside part of your door lock, and pop on the August Smart Lock Pro and you're good to go. So you'll be using the same keys and the same lock, but it is now smart. So you can use the app to unlock the door, you can set it to automatically unlock when you get home, or lock when you leave, and best of all it works with Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant. So you can ask Alexa to lock or unlock your door, or even find out what the status of the lock actually is.
