    Great product!!

    I have had this lock for a year. It’s awesome, and works every time without fail. Stunning to read these negative reviews. I assume they don’t read the instructions.

    Stay away

    There is a serious flaw with this lock that can cause it to unlock after you have been home awhile and without warning. The auto-unlock feature is very slow and doesn’t always work leaving you just standing at the door waiting and having to use the key.
    Support is non-existent and they will not replace the device under warranty.

    Works as Advertised. Happy so far.

    • Written by Daniel M from Cupertino

    Against the advice of other reviews, I bought this product. As a renter this is the best available solution to installing a smart lock without changing the existing lock on a door. Once I got it installed it is working as advertised. I can lock/unlock the door remotely and I get notifications when the door is locked/unlocked.

    Unfortunately, since my existing deadbolt was quite old (as well as double-barreled), and therefore incompatible due to a short tail-piece, I had to switch out the existing deadbolt anyways.

    I think if I owned the property, I would try out the Schlage option, but like I said, as a renter, not wanting my land lord to freak out about me switching out locks, this is ideal solution.

    August Lock

    • Written by David D from Fairfield

    This device is terrible and I'm shocked Apple would endorse it. I bought it 2 years ago and spent a lot of money and it has failed me from day 1....Never worked properly and I am super disappointed. I've called the company and they have offered tech support and IT IS A POORLY DESIGNED PRODUCT....

    Worst smart lock !!!!!

    • Written by Adam A from Rosenberg

    I have had this August lock since it came out as it was the only one at the time that was HomeKit compatible ( besides the Schlage lock ) ; and I’ve had nothing but problems with this lock! It not only jams every other week but it is VERY slow . My yale lock that I have installed on 4 other doors have 0 problems , are reliable , and work on command ! Simple command such as “ unlock my front door” worked flawlessly the first MONTH; after that it has been literally one problem after another . Starting from not even turning on because of connection problem between the battery to freezing in the middle of unlocking or locking ; causing me to have to RESET the lock every time ; the August lock has been nothing but problems . I never write negative reviews but this lock is so bad I had to go out of my way to advise others to purchase any OTHER lock besides this one .
