These days it seems more and more home products and appliances are coming with support for other smart home devices and/or can be controlled by virtual assistants, like this smart lock from August which is on sale for Prime Day. The Smart Lock Pro is a great intelligent home device to add some security but it's even better with the Connect WiFi Bridge which enhances the functionality by letting you unlock the door remotely from anywhere.
This in itself can be an added benefit if you have family or friends coming over as you can unlock the door for them even if you're not there, and all of this can be done from your smartphone using the August companion app. In addition to locking and unlocking the Smart Lock Pro remotely using the app, the lock also has support for Amazon Alexa so if you need to lock the door from somewhere else in the home and you don't have your phone nearby, you can simply ask Alexa to lock the door for you.
Installation of the lock can be a pretty quick process as August boasts that it should only take you about 10 minutes and it's a DIY job, while the Connect simply plugs into an outlet. You can grab the August Smart Lock Pro + Connect from the button below.
