August Smart Lock Adds New Level of Security to Your Smart Home

by User Not Found | Nov 21, 2016

When we introduced our new MONI brand in September, it was more than just a name change. We also committed to our three “brand pillars” of customer intimacy, faster response and comprehensive security.

Comprehensive security is our promise to offer the products and services you need, whether it’s standard home security or high-end home automation. That’s why we’re so excited about our new partnership with August Home, a leading provider of smart locks and other devices for today’s smart home.

The August Smart Lock and August Connect Wi-Fi bridge let MONI customers securely manage their front door from anywhere with a smartphone app for Android or iOS. It’s more than just being able to lock or unlock your door remotely:

  • August Smart Lock automatically locks the door behind you, and automatically unlocks it as you approach.
  • You can create virtual keys for family, guests or anyone who needs access to the home. Schedule dates and times, plus a window of weeks, hours or even minutes for access.
  • Keep an activity log to track of who’s entering or leaving. The unique access keys let you know who opens the door and when.

Here’s a practical look at comprehensive security: The doorbell rings when you’re not home. Your smartphone connects to a video doorbell that lets you see and talk to whoever’s at the door. Use your phone to unlock the door and disarm your home security system. Once they’re in, track their activity with a live feed from home video surveillance cameras. Lock the door behind them once they’re gone, and re-arm your system.

It’s that simple. Comprehensive smart-home security starts with protection, but goes so much deeper with devices that work together to make your life easier.
