Yves Behar’s August Smart Lock [$199] is not only designed to compete with traditional lock systems, it’s also a newer entrant into the quickly expanding smart lock market. August works independently of your home internet service. Reliable Bluetooth technology syncs your phone directly with your August lock. There’s no need to wire or connect August – it uses standard batteries. That means your lock stays on even if electricity goes down. Sensors will let you know, with indicators, and via email, when the batteries need replacing. Package includes deadbolt attachment adapters to accommodate standard deadbolts sold today.
