      Does now work as advertised

      I purchased this lock to be used with my apple TV and apple homekit. I did my research and was happy to find a lock that would fit these needs. Upon installing I purchased this lock to be used with my apple TV and apple homekit. I did my research and was happy to find a lock that would fit these needs. Upon installing the lock, I had a hard time setting it up with my apple TV (home app) I called the support line and learned that the lock does not work with IOS10. I feel mislead and lied to. This lock is no homekit compatible. Don't waste your time. Find another option.

      Don't Waste Your Money

      Where do I begin with these terrible products and their lack of adequate support. I purchased all three products together, Lock, Door Bell Cam, and Keypad. The Where do I begin with these terrible products and their lack of adequate support. I purchased all three products together, Lock, Door Bell Cam, and Keypad. The lock installed quickly but is just a Bluetooth device until you connect either a Home Connect hub or the doorbell cam. The Keypad was easy to install as well. The setup through the app was less straightforward with many starts and stops and reboots. Once all three units were installed, the first major problem I had was with the Doorbell Cam not getting a strong enough signal. My Canary is less than five feet away from the Cam and it has a very strong signal. When you set up the Cam August tells you to do it right on top the wireless router. The reason for that is the farther away from the router you are the signal drops very dramatically. Now remember that on all my other devices that are in the vicinity of the door bell cam get a strong signal. I spoke to August support and they suggested that I purchase a WiFi Hot Spot to boost the signal to the device. I went out and spend another hundred dollars for a hotspot, then wired a Ethernet cable down to the within five feet of the cam. Guess what? Now it works intermittently.. The signal with the hotspot five feet away is at the lowest working level for the device. With this device you have to install a wireless antenna with in inches of it to work properly. The truth is the design of the antenna in the Doorbell Cam is deficient. I guess this is the best this can get. I have been living with this for a couple fo months and now the door lock uses up batteries at two per week!!!! In the interim, we have come home to find that the door is open (unlocked), The batteries are dead, and we need to get the spare key to open the door. Again, we need to change the batteries. Calling tech support is useless since it takes over a half hour just to get a knowledgeable person on the phone. These products are terrible, they do not work as advertised, are not secure, and are a complete waste of time and money. I am hoping that I can return the products and get a complete refund. However, my experience with August so far is that I will not get much satisfaction from them.

      Lacks firmware update

      New August Smart Lock still lacks proper firmware update to work with Apple's Homekit. I have contacted Augusts' software engineers on multiple occasions and we New August Smart Lock still lacks proper firmware update to work with Apple's Homekit. I have contacted Augusts' software engineers on multiple occasions and week after week they continue to tell me the update is on the way. Homekit shouldn't be advertised on the box/ website if the device isn't capable of integrating with Homekit. Lock works great but I'm disappointed I was promised something that is not yet included.

      Unreliable

I have the connect device a As soon as I purchased this lock I had issues. Auto unlock wouldn't work and sometimes the unlocking feature wouldn't work at all. I have the connect device as well. After about 6 months, the lock would just stop working, and I was locked out twice. The only way to get it to work again was to remove the batteries. After trying to get this fixed through August support, they finally admitted that there is a defect that causes the lock to stop working and they are working to fix it. The thing is they only admitted 1 month after my warranty expired. Now they won't do anything to help me despite the fact that I contacted them for support on this issue well before the warranty period was up.
