August Unveils iPhone Controlled Smart Lock
Designer Yves Behar and technology entrepreneur Jason Johnson have launched new company called August and unveiled their first product - an iPhone controlled Smart Lock.
Through a Bluetooth low energy (BLE) enabled locking mechanism and an elegant and intuitive mobile application, August allows you to send a virtual key to anyone you choose to have access to your home. August retrofits to your existing deadbolt and installs in less than ten minutes. It relies on the same secure communications technology used by financial institutions for online banking, giving only desired individual's access to your property for set amounts of time. As the homeowner or a guest arrives at the door, August auto-unlocks and welcomes you into the home hands-free.
The August Smart Lock is made from high quality materials and features a design that provides visual cues about the lock's status and battery life. The lock is available in different colors to fit into any home's decor.
Shipping is slated to begin later this year. The lock will cost $199. You can reserve yours at the link below. Check out the video for more details.
