August Smart Lock is Both Functional and Attractive


Smart lock systems are one of those inventions that sound like more trouble than they’re worth, but when done right, they’re a boon to anyone who shares an apartment or home, either for Airbnb or lending a beach house to visiting friends.

Besides iOS 8 and iPhone integration, August is compatible with Android devices, as well.
