我是 August Smart Lock 的忠实拥护者，它能够简单地安装在您现有的固定栓上，并立即将其变成连接的固定装置。 现在市场很多智能门锁的通病是：必须使用单独的设备才能将其连接到互联网。August Wi-Fi Smart Lock 改变了这一点。
We’re already big fans of the August Smart Lock, with its ability to simply mount on your existing deadbolt and immediately turn it into a connected fixture. It’s very convenient. You know what’s not convenient? Having to use a separate device to get it connected to the internet. The August Wi-Fi Smart Lock changes that.
Equipped with a built-in Wi-Fi radio, the device can hop onto your home network without the need for a Wi-Fi bridge, eliminating another device you need to plug in and find space for somewhere in your home. That makes setting it up a more straightforward affair, allowing you to quickly get your smart lock set up by simply mounting this over a deadbolt.
August Wi-Fi 智能锁的外形与前代产品相似，但结构更紧凑，体积缩小了45％，使它位于前门内侧时显得非常低调。 这种新型号看上去比标准门把手稍大一点（直径为72mm），因此它看起来并不像旧版本那样完全不合适。它具有与前任产品相同的所有优点，无论是在指定的时间后自动锁定死锁，在附近检测到您时自动解锁（地理保护）还是要打开您的钥匙都可以使用它。它可以让您保留锁舌的传统用途，因为只有内部部分才可以安装在硬件上。
The August Wi-Fi Smart Lock takes on a similar but more compact form factor as its predecessor, coming in at 45 percent smaller, making it look very understated while it sits on the inside of your front door. Seriously, this new model looks just slightly bigger than a standard door knob (it measures 72mm in diameter), so it doesn’t look totally out of place the way the older version did. It provides all the same benefits that its predecessor does, whether it be automatically locking your deadbolt after a specified amount of time, automatically unlocking when it detects you within the vicinity (geofencing), or letting you use your keys if you want to open your door in the traditional fashion. That’s right, it lets you retain traditional use of your deadbolt, as only the interior section gets mounted over with the hardware.
The big change here, of course, is the built-in Wi-Fi, allowing it to get on your home network without another hardware to purchase and set-up. That means, you get access to your lock via the smartphone app anywhere you are, so you can open the door if you’re not yet home when your mom suddenly showed up or when your neighbor finally comes over to return the drill he borrowed last year.
August Wi-Fi 智能锁还允许您创建访问密钥并将其发送给任何您希望对其进行临时访问的人，这样您就可以为周末来访的清洁女工，水管工或堂兄提供一种方法，不必每次都打电话给您才能进入房子。所有按键也可以随时禁用，因此只有在您认为必要时才能使用它们。它还带有一个内置传感器，该传感器可以随时告诉您门是否被锁定，因此您可以轻松地使用该应用程序进行检入，而不必亲自检查。另外，它在锁处于打开或关闭状态时都会发送通知，因此您确切地知道人们何时进出。
The August Wi-Fi Smart Lock also allows you to create and send access keys to anyone you want to give temporary access to the lock, so you can give a way for the cleaning lady, the plumber, or your cousin who’s visiting over the weekend to get into the house without having to call you every time. All the keys can be disabled at any time, too, so they can only be used as long as you deem them necessary. It also comes with a built-in sensor that can tell you at any time whether the door is locked or not, so you can check in easily using the app, instead of having someone physically check it. Plus, it sends notifications anytime the lock is engaged or disengaged, so you know exactly when people are coming and going.
To ensure security, it uses Bluetooth encryption and Transport-Layer Security on the app, making it highly-unlikely that anyone can hack your door to unlock it. Other features include voice assistant support (Siri, Google Assistant, and Alexa) and compatibility with nearly any single-cylinder deadbolt. It powers using two CR123 batteries.
