1). The August Wi-Fi connect is just horrible. I connected it to the lock no problem but trying to add it to google home was just a nightmare. Added the device in google home and it did not work. Removed it from google home and tried to add it again, nothing. Did not even show up anymore but said it was successful. After hours of trying to unlink and link it in google home. I decided to reinstall the august connect from the reset to pairing it to the lock again. Bingo the device finally decided to show up in google home. Tried to contact august and spent 1.5 hours on hold with no one answering. Just gave up. There is no customer service. Be WARNED !!!!!!! you are on your own.
2). The Bluetooth range on the august Wi-Fi connect it really really bad. Once installed it shows good signal but after a while it always reports bad Bluetooth signal to the lock even with it right next to the lock. That is if the signal strength check works. Most of the time it just says fetching!!! Super bad. Crappy hardware.
3). In order to get the lock status over Wi-Fi (august connect), you always need to hit the Wi-Fi symbol next to the lock status circle. That is a bit of a pain. Worse, if you leave home and you are at a remote location, checking the status, it tries Bluetooth and fails and then you have to hit the Wi-Fi symbol to get the status. Why do you need to do that, the app is aware of the location so it knows you are not at home, so why bother with Bluetooth? just use Wi-Fi period, don’t bother with Bluetooth. Simple enough? August please change that in the app.
4). One bug that is really annoying is that for some reason, if you are away from home, sometimes the remote access via Wi-Fi just does not work. You can try and try hitting the wifi button but nothing. It says cannot connect. But if you kill the app via android (force it to stop in background) then relaunching it and checking the status over Wi-Fi works instantly. So it is not the august connect but the android app that is just messed up. FIX This please!!!!!! Should not have to kill the app and restart. But once restarted, it continues to work until you get home. So something in the transition from home to away messes up the android app. But the auto unlock part still works, just not the remote status via Wi-Fi until you kill the app and relaunch it. Super pain in the backside. Come on august, clean up your product.
5). Now the Google home integrations is horrible. You need to say “OK google, talk to august” Then you get a man’s voice and need to ask him the status of the lock. Really? Why can it not be integrated with Google assistant? Why do you need to talk to another assistant? Please fix that. Integrate it better. I have Chinese products that are way better integrated into Google Home without having to do all these round about to get the status of my lock. August, hire a crack programmer that knows what he is doing and rework the google home part. That is if you want to have a great product in the market. Almost everyone will eventually integrate this to Alexa or Google Home. So at the very least, IMPROVE IT, IMPROVE T, IMPROVE IT.
So as it stands, the lock hardware is great, the August Wi-Fi connect hub is just trash. The August home app is full of bugs and the Google Home integration is poor at best. That also needs to be redone. But if they fix all that, this could be the lock for everyone. Customer service is NON existent. So if you are a bit technically challenged, forget customer support. There is none unfortunately. I guess no one explained to them that what makes a product is great customer support. But I guess they missed that all together. Love that auto unlock feature. So maybe eventually this could be a great product. Just fix the Bluetooth, Wi-Fi connect and app and one day you will be at the top of the heap. This product is almost $ 300.00 CDN. People want what they pay for, a great product. That is my two cents.
Después de casi 3 semanas de uso e decidido devolverlo. Frustrante, detecta cuando quiere, cuando funciona, fenomenal pero el 50% de las veces estás parado afuera de tu puerta como inútil sacando tu cel cerrando la app y abriéndola y esperando a que el Bluetooth detecte para que la puedas abrir.
Al principio pensé que podría con ello pero si nos resultó muy inpractico y molesto. Quizás cambiaremos por otro modelo que utilice wifi en vez de bluetooth u otra tecnología.
La idea es excelente cuando funciona, cuando falla es un dolor de cabeza!
Una lástima realmente quería que nos funcionara, nunca me había dado tanta pena devolver un producto.
The app allows to send invites to the arriving guest and provide with time limited access.
So far there have been no issues with the App install and I had no issues with the app on my phone.
We will see how long the batteries last for, but currently it operates the lock lawlessly.
I took off one star due to the high price and the fact the wifi hub appears to have major issues with connectivity, if it wasn't for that, I would have most definitely acquired one, August please fix this!
Relevant: using iPhone 7 Plus with latest updates.
Also with IFTT, August lock is working ONLY as a trigger. So up to now, there is not possible to e.g. lock the door every day at 10PM :(
Good support via phone.
- Convenient. Will it replace your keys? No. But if you have hands full and fumble with your keys this is a great alternative.
- Easy to install. Where others need you to replace the whole dead bolt and get new keys, this unit simply replaces the inside portion of the lock.
- with the phone app and Watch app control is easily at your fingertips with nice notifications.
- Easily works with multiple people in the house. I can be home and my wife can come home and it still unlock for her.
- Because this unit runs on batteries it needs to be VERY careful how often it stays connected. Saying that, opening the app or using the watch app takes a few seconds to ‘establish connection’ even to just see the status of the lock. This can be frustrating.
- Battery life: Yes my unit is faulty and the batteries lasted two days but I still had to put this in as a con.
Is it worth it? Yes. It is convenient. Don’t expect it to replace your keys though and I wouldn’t go out without them but if you have a storm door like us and find yourself wedged between it and the door and fumble for your keys then it comes in handy.
When I try to install the lock it didn't work with my particular brand of door Dead bolt
Defiant which is a house brand of Home Depot
But with a quick internet search I found an adapter what could be 3D printed
the tolerances aren't perfect but it does turn the lock
It cost me $3.00 to 3D print these at my local library for 2
I'm working with the Creator of the 3D printed lock to fix the tolerances but it may take a while
August needs to make more of an effort to include more brands In their adapter kits
Also they need to fix the Bluetooth on the item as mine disconnects quite frequently
I have to reattach the lock To my phone too much
It good product but could be better
Within the app, you can invite family and friends to have either guest or owner privileges to your lock which eliminates the need to cut keys for them. You can also track who opened your door and how (manually or wirelessly) and at what time. This lock gives you so much control for your home and it's the best investment that I've made in the past 5 years.
They do need to make some improvements to the application itself since it can be quite slow in connectivity, but you can't really expect much from Bluetooth connections.
Highly, highly recommended!
- SUPER easy to install, I am NOT handy and it took me 5 minutes to install this lock
- The UI for the app is very nice, and assigning temporary locks to other people is extremely simple
- The autolock feature is amazing, I don't even lock my door anymore since I know it'll lock after 2 minutes
- I had a special case since I was installing the lock on my condo door. I have a schlage lock and the screws that were included were not long enough. I reached out to August and they provided me with longer screws within a week.
- Getting the lock to link up with the wifi adapter took a few tries, but after it connected once it was fine!
I bought myself an August last year and the difference is night and day. Installation was 3min maximum. The app is clean with a great UX. Unlocking with the widget from my lock screen is faster than the Kevo ever was.
This year I grabbed another one to replace the Kevo at my parents'. It's been installed for 3 days and my mom has already called me to thank me and say how much better it is.
I obviously haven't tested every smart lock out there, but if The Wirecutter's pick of Kevo is supposed to be the best and this is better, I don't know see how anything else could beat it.
