august smart locks get new auto-connect feature

Internet of Things company August has added an Auto-Connect feature for certain August Smart Locks, the company has announced. This is a convenience feature that enables the lock to automatically detect when the home owner is in front of the door. As well, the Auto-Connect feature knows when the owner is accessing the smart lock remotely, offering what August calls “seamless control.”The Auto-Connect feature makes it easier to check the lock’s status or to let someone in while away from home. Until now, August Smart Lock owners had to tap the remote connect button within the mobile app, then wait for the smart lock to connect to the home’s WiFi. With the change, the smart lock automatically connects to WiFi when the August app’s lock screen is opened. This eliminates the need to wait for t

apple watch now unlocks doors (with august smart lock)

The folks behind the August Smart Lock revealed a new feature Wednesday that allowed users to unlock their door with an Apple Watch. This app update for August Smart Locks does not require an iPhone nearby when the unlock switch is tapped. “The all-new native August Apple Watch app lets house ‘Owners’ with any generation of our August Smart Lock and any Apple Watch control their lock, without needing to carry their iPhone.”Once an Apple Watch user and August Smart Lock home Owner has their newest app and OS software in place, they’ll be able to do several things. Without the use of an iPhone, the Apple Watch user will be able to view multiple locks, choose a lock, unlock or lock a lock, and add August Smart Lock to the watch’s “watch face shortcut” list.This functionality is different from

You'll also need to update your iOS app, because you might be prompted to log in to sync your locks. Once that's done (and you're a recognized owner), though, you'll be able to view all the August locks you have on the Watch's screen. If you want easy access to a specific lock, you can even add it as a Watch face shortcut. August Home says it's a different feature from Auto-Unlock, since you'll still have your phone nearby with that one. With this particular feature, all you'll really need is Apple Watch itself.

the google assistant now knows if your august door is ajar

August’s smart locks are getting tighter integration with the Google Assistant, including helping the paranoid get closure over whether the door is actually closed. New functionality has been added to the Assistant, which now allows for lock status to be checked on, in addition to the existing features. August and the Google Assistant first hooked up last year, with the ability to ask a Google Home or the Assistant on a smartphone to remotely lock the door. What it couldn’t do, however, was warn you if the door had actually locked properly. That’s something August added with its latest Smart Lock and Smart Lock Pro in 2017, with a feature it called DoorSense. That adds a small sensor to the door frame next to the lock. If the bolt is fired, but – because the door has been left ajar – it do

botched firmware update bricks some ls6i home smart locks

Smart locks are great, and they’ve made their way onto a variety of homes. Vacation home owners use them to grant guests access to the house without having to physically let them in, for example. Home owners use the locks to ensure their kids can get inside without remembering a key. Some apartment complexes have even added these locks to their residences. That makes a recent botched firmware update particularly concerning.Some owners of the Lockstate LS6i smart lock were recently on the receiving end of an over-the-air firmware update that essentially bricked their devices. The affected locks lost their ability to connect with the Lockstate servers and, therefore, their ability to work at all. The company confirmed this unfortunate event, saying to The Verge that it only affects a ‘small
