The Sesame includes a knock to unlock feature for iOS devices. With the Sesame app running in the phone's background and Bluetooth connected, you can knock on your phone three times to unlock the door.
Within the Sesame app, you can view lock status and activity history. Each unlock and lock action is recorded in a color-coded log. You'll also see manual unlock and locks noted as well as the addition of any Wi-Fi access points.
The Sesame comes with a red metal plate for adhering to your door if the mounting surface isn't flat or is otherwise imperfect. It also comes with stickers so you can label the lock with locking and unlocking directions.
Overall, the Sesame Smart Lock worked well, but it falls short of August's line of smart locks in a few areas. With no direct integrations with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa or Siri and no door-sensing technology, the Sesame isn't as good a value as the August Smart Lock.
