August announces Connect, an expansion for the Smart Lock that allows it to connect to the internet.

NewFamily-01.0August introduced the world to their newest product, the Connect, at CES today. Connect will allow the Smart Lock to connect to the internet as opposed to only having a connection through Bluetooth. This will allow users to unlock their doors remotely. This function will allow users to have more control over who enters their house. You can easily ‘buzz’ friends and family into your home from anywhere. This also allows users to ensure they remembered to lock their doors when they are away from home. In addition to these options for users, people will also have the added benefit of being able to connect to more smart home products. The best part is that there are no additional fees associated with the Connect.

August Connect plugs into any power outlet near your August Smart Lock and seamlessly connects your smart lock to your home WiFi, enabling new remote access features including the ability to check the status of your lock and operate it remotely from the August app.

Pre-order your August Connect now for $49.99 on august.com. August Connect ships mid-February 2015.
