The August Connect WiFi Bridge unlocks remote access for smart locks such as the August Smart Lock and August Smart Lock Pro. We think it's a particularly worthy investment for anyone who wants to use an August Smart Lock on their rental property. You can issue guest codes and keys without having to visit the property where the lock is located. It also adds more security by allowing you to view the status of the door from afar, as well as lock the door and view the activity log.

Product Information

  • Access it anywhere: The August Connect lets you access your smart lock remotely. That means you can lock and unlock the door from a distance--perfect for those who are always wondering whether they remembered to lock the door.
  • Stay in the know: Remote access also allows you to view your activity log from anywhere in the world. You can stay up to date on who has accessed your home, particularly useful when it comes to keeping an eye on the younger and older members of your household.
  • No wires required: The WiFi Bridge simply plugs into an electrical outlet with no additional wires required. This gives it a sleek design that helps it blend into your home.
  • Exclusively for August: August Connect is compatible with all of August's smart locks, including the August Smart Lock 3rd Generation and the Smart Lock Pro. Each lock requires its own wireless bridge to enable remote access.

The August Connect - WiFi Bridge in action

Using the August Connect allows you to access your August smart lock remotely from your smartphone. Thanks to the WiFi Bridge, you'll no longer be restricted to the default Bluetooth range of 30-40 feet.

Why you need remote access for your smart lock

Remote access over the August Connect WiFi Bridge has three distinct advantages. First of all, you can unlock and lock the door from anywhere in the world (owners of one of the newer August Smart Lock models can even see if the door is open with the DoorSense feature). Secondly, the activity log lets you see who's gained access to the door remotely, giving you an added layer of security for your home. Finally, the Connect gives you the ability to issue temporary access keys and codes for guest users - great if you're managing a rental property in a different part of the country.

Using the August Connect also unlocks the ability to use voice commands via the Google Home or Amazon Alexa voice assistants. You can ask these two to check the status of the door, or even have them lock or unlock the door for you.
