I can't tell if you're serious or you're trolling. The reason people mention the rock through the window isn't for comedic effect. It's to signify that your security is only as strong as your weakest point. You can spend a million dollars on a steel door and a door lock, but if you have windows to enter, people will go through your windows. Thieves will do whatever is easiest. The point is that you're not paying more for the security. You're paying more for convenience of entering and leaving i.e. hands free with your phone. People who complain about it being hacked act like every average person knows how to do it. It's like saying hey, banks can be robbed, nobody should use banks!

"Why put a lock on your door at all?" Seriously? There's a huge difference between having someone break in vs leaving your door open. What, are you gonna file a police report of a theft and say, hey, I let them in, they stole my stuff, can you please get them for me?

Lock warranties. Your argument is that it's too expensive with a short warranty. You're right, it shouldn't break within a short period of time. But I'm sure other people have had their locks for years without any issues otherwise there would be tons of negative reviews on this item, and people would avoid this like the plague. You don't buy things hoping they last their warranty. You buy things hoping they work, period. The warranty is just in case things happen. So you're literally just unlucky.

I have this setup and it's great for letting my housekeeper in without her having a key to the home. The app lets you create unique codes for each end-user, and keep track of when the codes were entered. Wouldn't be hard to create a code for a guest, then delete it as soon as as the rental was over.

Although I have no personal experience, I have read good things in Airbnb forums about August. Also, one of August's major target demographics is Airbnb owners.

Could someone chime in on when the discount code expires? Thinking about picking this up but would like to do a little more research beforehand.

I ordered it from this announcement and received and installed it yesterday. I don't have wi-fi in my place yet though the Bluetooth and keypad work great! installation is guided via the app. My first experience with such devices - I'm pretty happy!!!

Thanks for reporting back, and I'm glad to hear you're happy about the purchase! Before buying my August set, I asked if the keypad would still work if my Wi-Fi is down, and was assured it's a Bluetooth connection between the keypad and the lock, so lack of Wi-Fi isn't an issue. It's reassuring that it works for you even without Wi-Fi.

I think you bought at a great time. This is by far the lowest price I have seen for these products, and they are all of the current generation that was released less than a year ago, which means a newer generation will not be announced anytime soon.

Just an FYI I have a similar door lock with smart home integration. Alexa Is disabled by default on a smart lock on command for safety reasons. Such as someone yelling unlock the door and robbing your place. It was not able to unlock at all but recently allowed for an option.

August locks have been easily hacked before.

While I'm uncertain about this band, several other brands of high end Bluetooth locks carried hard coded keys that are shared across all devices from that manufacturer.

Not good. Certainly not at that price. You don't want people to be able to pop your locks with their phone and a free copy of Kali Linux when you're paying that much.

This stuff always perplexes me. You know what else is easily "hacked"? Almost all standard deadbolt lock cylinders. You know whats even easier than that? Throwing a rock throw a window.


At least with the August lock, there is nothing outside that makes it look like a smart lock (unless someone spots the keypad I guess). But for most people, it's probably absurdly unlikely that someone is going to waste time hacking their smart lock to break in?
