How to install the HomeKit-enabled August Smart LockYou can install August's second-gen Smart Lock in minutes flat. Here's how.
[MUSIC] In phoning a smart look is so much easier than you think especially model like the home kit enabled August smart look. That retro fits to your existing dead ball. Here's how easy it is. Before you even buy an August smart lock or any other smart lock for that matter, you need to make sure that it's actually compatible with your existing deadbolt. After you confirmed that your deadbolt is actually compatible with your smart lock of choice, just remove the screws from your existing deadbolt. After you've removed the screws, then you can take off the thumb latch. After that, line up the mounting plate August supplies with your deadbolt and reattach the screws from your old lock. Attach the compatible adaptor to the back of your August Smart Lock, lift up the wing latches on both sides of the lock. Stick it over your old deadbolt and fold down the wing latches, and that's really it. It should take you just about ten minutes tops to install this, which makes the August Smart Lock one of the simplest DIY installs around. [NOISE]
