August on Tuesday announced that as of January, its 1.4 million users had locked and unlocked their doors with its  smart locks  more than 1 billion times. 

To mark the milestone, August engaged celebrated designer Yves Behar's firm, Fuseproject, to develop a limited edition smart lock in a white finish. It's the first white smart lock August has offered and it has a narrower, more modern design.
