August Home has released the August Wi-Fi Smart Lock, the smallest and slimmest lock of its kind. Designed by August co-founder Yves Béhar, the retrofit smart lock comes equipped with a built-in Wi-Fi connection and a brand new compact design the size of a standard doorknob.
The August Wi-Fi Smart Lock is a sleek new offering - one that is 45% smaller in volume and 20% slimmer than the August Smart Lock Pro, yet still delivers the same advanced features, functionality and security. The new smart lock provides a smoother turning mechanism and its face offers softer surface transitions and rounded edges, while the refined, textured ridges surrounding the lock invite tactility when the lock is manually rotated. There is also a new August badge that visually helps users identify the device's lock status.
"We're always looking to explore how far we can push front door access, and the next frontier we wanted to tackle was fitting all the benefits of an August Smart Lock into a more discreet, yet beautiful package," stated Jason Johnson, co-founder of August. "Designing and building this new compact smart lock that offers as many capabilities as it does was no easy feat, so we are extremely proud to be able to provide our current and future customers with the best available product on the market."
