This Connected Door Lock Sends You Timely Smartphone Notifications

Security technology startup August is launching a new range of connected door locks that make ample use of smartphone technology and modern sensors to keep you informed on the security status of your home.

The company's latest offerings, the August Smart Lock and the premium-priced August Smart Lock Pro, both come equipped with proprietary DoorSense technology, which makes use of embedded sensors that can track whether a door has been opened or closed, and can go ahead and notify the user on their phone. The Pro version comes with a WiFi module that makes it possible for users to lock their doors remotely.

By taking advantage of the fact that people spend so much time on their smartphones nowadays, August's connected door locks ensure burden-free functionality and reliable security, allowing for a high level of appeal among people looking to take advantage of technology to secure their homes.
