August introduced a version of its door lock today called the Smart Lock Pro. Like its name suggests, it’s only available to August Pro members, which is the portion of the company that sells to security dealers and integrators who do custom home installs. Sorry, you can’t buy this lock because it’s only for sale through August’s security distribution partners.
“The company has also joined the Z-Wave Alliance, an indication that the Smart Lock Pro won’t be the last August product to utilize the standard.”
Today August Home also announces the August Smart Lock Pro (Z-Wave), which will be sold exclusively through the professional installation channel. With Z-Wave Alliance membership, August Home will receive Z-Wave certification for the August Smart Lock Pro (Z-Wave) and will begin distributing to custom home installers this fall. The August Smart Lock is one of the top selling smart locks and August Home is a recognized leader in the smart home. Adding Z-Wave interoperability gives security and CE installers the ability to integrate the August Smart Lock into their Z-Wave installations.
Mike Buckingham, director of August Home, explains the feature set of the August Smart Lock, including Amazon Echo and Nest compatibility and the Apple HomeKit chip. He also discusses the benefits for integrators from the new August Pro Division.
