The August Smart Lock is a new product by designer Yves Béhar and technology entrepreneur Jason Johnson, which updates the humble door lock for the "Internet of Things" era. The August Smart Lock fits onto existing door deadbolts, and its designers reckon that installation should be a quick two-screw job for around 90 percent of US-based deadbolts. Once it's up and running, users simply approach their door with their iPhone.
The August Smart Lock’s social networking features allow users to issue up to 10 "virtual keys" for their iPhone-owning guests. This access can be set to be valid during a certain time frame only, and is also logged, thus lending a greater degree of security than simply cutting a spare key and hoping for the best. The August Smart Lock utilizes rechargeable AA batteries as a power source, so it stays online even in the event of a power outage. Other features include a log record so you can see who entered and exited your home as well as the date and time they did, invite lists, a guestbook feature, and auto-unlock.
Pre-orders for the smart lock are currently open for $199.
