August offers several smart locks in the US. The company introduced a new version of its door lock, the August Smart Lock Pro. It is the first August lock utilizing the Z-Wave standard.
The new high-tech lock will first only be available through approved dealers.
August also announced its accession to the Z-Wave Alliance. Becoming a Z-Wave Alliance member broadens the smart lock’s potential compatibilities with other Z-Wave devices.
August also provides smart locks that are compatible Apple HomeKit. According to Jason Johnson, August’s CEO, the next step would be adapting their smart locks to other of the industry’s standards such as Zigbee.
