Brian Willaman says:

do you need all of these to lock and unlock a door? a key won’t need a battery.

One more thing for a hacker to break into and have access to your network. No thanks

Why did she curse at Alexa when asked for the pin though?

Grant access from Google trusted voice then I’ll be in

Richard Servello says:

August locks are COMPLETE garbage! I’ve had one for a few years and the ONLY reason I bought it was for the auto unlock feature. It works maybe 10% of the time. Often it auto unlocks 10 mins to 2 hours after im already home. Awesome security!!

This is way too slow.

KAC3 says:

What’s wrong with just using a key?

Tidal Yacht says:

I don’t feel safe with ANY “smart” lock. Sorry, but I have no interest in the Internet of Things or the Internet of Everything.

Sometimes; something works so well (a metal key in this case) that it doesn’t need to be replaced anytime soon.

JJ says:

That is not a smart question.

Jose Moanińho says:

If you’re trying yo break in, use Windows.

Youssef Hegazy says:

Its only a matter of time until someone finds out a way to break into these iOT devices, and these are small companies that don’t have/care capabilities to ensure better security measures.
