Culture
[NOISE] Hey Siri, unlock my door. [SOUND] Okay, the front door is unlocked. It's been a year since the original August Smart Lock was released, so it's about due for an upgrade and this is it. It's called the August. Smart lock home kit edition. As the name suggests it is, of course, Apple home kit compatible with all of the bells and whistled you would expect, including Siri voice control. So you can do things like ask Siri, hey Lock my front door. Lock my back door. You can even be a bit more granular with her as well, and say, hey Siri, is my front door locked? So you can check the status of that as well. the Smart Lock has a lot of the same features that were on the original, so of course you get full smartphone control. You can lock and unlock your door from within the smartphone app. There is automatic locking, so when you leave Proximity of your house the door will automatically lock, and you can also grant other users access to your smart lock as well from within the app. So it's going to be available for 229 On pre-order. Also on the product lineup is the Smart Keypad from August. Now this is $79 and you can set a one-time access code. Say, for example, if you are having a plumber or a builder come over to your house, you just want to grant. One-time access, you can do so with a specific code. Or you can have a persistent code for someone like kids who don't necessarily carry keys, so they can access the house constantly. You can also see, through the app, who exactly is accessing your house at any one time. Next stop is the doorbell cam. Now, this has a 140 degree camera, it's HD at 960P. It is a two-way voice system, so you can actually talk and respond to the person that is at your front door. You can see All of the interactions through the app as well, plus you can grant an access. And it has a motion sensor too, so you can actually see a live stream of who is at the front door or if you just wanna see what is happening outside your house, you can do so as well. So this one is gonna be available for $199. Now these all work together with the August app, and there is a special part of the app that's gonna be released Just in beta with 13 launch partners. It is called August Access. So, this gives you a range of different vendors that can come to your house and grant one-time access to. Including people like Sears, Postmates or even, a dog-walking service. So, you can see exactly who is accessing your house and grant them permission to enter at any particular time.
