First August Smart Locks Begin Shipping

Coincidentally, last August Phila-Locksmith profiled the August Smart Lock which was getting ready to hit the residential security market. The first pre-orders for these locks began to ship last week and customers must be ecstatic about finally receiving their smart locks. August Smart Locks offer homeowners convenient access to their home’s lock anywhere in the world. This allows for owners to allow access to their friends and family, even if they are running late. Since you can arm and disarm your from anywhere in the world, you never have to worry about forgetting to lock your door again, you can simply double check from the app on your smart phone.

The shipping date for August smart lock pre-orders had been delayed, however, this may be a welcomed delay for customers. The delay is believed to have been caused by August’s integration with the Apple HomeKit on the iOS 8 system. Apple’s HomeKit allows for  iOS 8 user to be able to access multiple home security apps from one convenient universal home security app. This also includes Siri integration, for even easier access through voice command.

The August Smart Lock puts the security of your home right in the palm of your hand.

Pre-orders were available for the discounted price of $199.99, but once the August Smart Locks hits markets in October, the price will be $249.99. The August Smart Lock is one of a few smart technology enabled locks which Phila-Locksmith has profiled, however; it is the first of these residential smart locks to hit the market.

Customer reviews after these pre-orders ship should be very telling about the reliability and usefulness of the smart lock itself. At first glance, it seems that the August Smart Lock would be a smart and sensible purchase for anyone who is looking to improve the amount of convenience that they have in their residential access. Integration with the iOS 8 operating system should give the popularity of August a big boost, as they look at trying to capitalize on the popularity of Apple’s iPhone.
