August has recently released two new products, the Doorbell Cam and Smart Keypad. These two additions are meant to round out the functions of the company's smart lock, which allows you to leave your keys at home and open your deadbolt with a smartphone. The Doorbell Cam now lets you chat with whoever is outside the door to determine whether you want to invite them in while the Smart Keypad acts as added insurance to getting in at all.

Together, the Smart Lock, Doorbell Cam and Smart Keypad ensures a level of security that is easy to use and fairly personable. Although somewhat expensive when compared to traditional locks, this set up -- so long as the tech is not buggy -- makes the whole process feel more secure and effortless.
