August Smart Lock



Leave it to Yves Behar to use his legendary design talents to finally figure out a beautiful solution for using your iPhone to unlock your door, the August Smart Lock. Using a Bluetooth Low Energy-enabled locking system, August takes over your conventional deadbolt system (fits 90% of locks) to create a "Smart Lock" that lets you unlock your door when it detects your Smartphone and gives you the ability to send virtual keys to anyone who needs them. Got the relatives coming in? Just send them a virtual key and voila! instant access to your home. You can also set an expiration date for your the keys you send out and the lock uses bank-grade encryption to keep it all safe and secure. August will be available later this year.
