August has unveiled August View, a new wire-free doorbell camera that can deliver video to your smartphone and pair with August Smart Locks.

View pairs with August Smart Locks, so customers can not only see and speak to visitors, but also let them in, directly from their phone. Videos and customer data from all August products are stored securely in the August Cloud, where they are protected by two layers of required authentication and GDPR-compliant privacy policies. The August Cloud and August App securely protect the front door for more than 1.5 million users.

“The doorbell camera has always played a key role within our suite of products dedicated to securing front doors across the country,” said Jason Johnson, CEO and co-founder of August. “With the new August View, we’re providing an advanced secure solution that is high-performing, highly customizable and offers features that our customers have been asking for.”
