Amazon has discounted the August Smart Lock Pro & Connect for just $199. This is down from its regular price of $279, and it also brings it down to its all-time lowest price. Making it a great time to pick up the Smart Lock Pro and Connect.
The August Smart Lock Pro is the company's current smart lock. This is able to work with your existing lock, so that you won't need to replace your keys, and you can still use your existing, physical key to unlock the door. Now August does make it super simple to install this smart lock, and all you need is a philips-head screwdriver, which everyone should have one anyways. The Smart Lock Pro can be controlled through the app, so you can unlock or lock it remotely, as well as set up smart alerts so that you get a notification when someone comes in the front door – good for when your kids come home from school while you're at work still. You can also set it up so that when you get home, the door automatically unlocks. Now these features only work with the Connect that comes with the Smart Lock Pro. The Connect plugs into the wall, and allows the Smart Lock Pro to connect to Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, so you can use your voice to unlock the front door.
