This is a partnered post with August Home, all opinions are my own.
One of the most important and widely used doors in our home is our front door. From package deliveries to kids coming home from school, it’s important that I know what is going on inside and outside of my front door.
I had the chance to install the August Smart Lock and August Doorbell Cam this past weekend. This neat, and easy to install system is just what we needed. We had a keypad deadbolt lock, which is great for not having keys, but not so great if we need to let someone in while home. I am not a fan of leaving keys under rocks and do not like giving my codes away.After installing the August Smart Home Access Solution, I now have full control over my front door. I can easily open my door through the August Home app on my smartphone via Bluetooth, or can provide a digital code that can be accessed from the August Smart Keypad.
Our new August Doorbell Cam replaced the old boring one, with a sleek unit that does way more than just going “ding dong.” Now when someone arrives or tries to sell us something or deliver a package, I can see exactly who it is through a one-way HD camera and even communicate with them through a two-way speaker.
We have installed the August Home app on our phones including our oldest so she can access the front door whenever she needs to. If she is at home by herself she can easily check the front door without letting anyone know she is home or checking on them.
What is great about the August Smart Home Access Solution is the ease of installation and quick set-up. It’s as simple as replacing existing lock hardware and for the Doorbell Cam, replacing the boring doorbell button. To make it fully 21st century, there is an app for that. I can lock and unlock my door with my August Home app and track who comes and goes with the 24/7 activity log.
Now I have a nice futuristic doorbell where I can also see and speak with them. This is possible from anywhere in my house or when I am away from my house. It is connected to our Wi-Fi system, so it’s accessible anywhere.For any guests, or for Airbnb hosts, the nifty August Smart Keypad next to my Doorbell Cam allows me to set a security code for any guests of family visiting. We have dogs and if anything happens or maybe they need a checking on, I can set up a simple code to give them, that can be turned off just as simple.
This is also a great system for families. Check when your kids come home or leave, let them check the door from complete privacy, and just know your front door is protected and monitored from the ease of your smartphone.

Airbnb hosts can link their accounts to August Home making it easy for guests to enter and leave without the hassle and compromise of physical keys that can be copied or lost. With the August Smart Lock, keys and codes can be easily changed. My kids have smartphones and now my oldest doesn’t have to worry about codes or keys, she just uses her August Home app.
