August Adds Auto-Connect to August Smart Locks

The August Smart Lock Pro and August Smart Lock (3rd generation) let you control your door from anywhere. Now their newest August Smart Locks are location-aware. With August’s Auto-Connect technology, your lock automatically detects if you are in front of your door or accessing your lock remotely for seamless control.

Previously, when you wanted to check the status of your lock or let someone in remotely, you had to tap the remote connect button and wait for the lock to connect to Wi-Fi. Now that connection happens automatically when you open the lock screen in your August app. No more waiting for a connection or wondering if you locked the door when you left the house – you can instantly confirm your door is locked from the August app.

Auto-Connect requires one of their Wi-Fi bridges, August Connect Wi-Fi Bridge or an August Doorbell Cam.
