August Locks Connect


#1

Anyone seen this yet? I’m assuming that this (although backordered) would make the August locks talk to hub V1?

Does this remove the need to wait for BT in hub V2 to use August Locks with ST?


August Connect - update?

Sorry - just saw this has already been discussed and @Ben has confirmed that this will be the go-to way for August Locks and ST to communicate.

Yeah, I think it’s to compete, at least in investors’ minds, with the Lockitron Bolt Bridge, which is the same idea. Plug in bridge (so battery life isn’t the issue) to convert WIFI to Bluetooth. Leaves the lock Bluetooth but allows for more controller options, third party or not. Creates a new security vulnerability, I personally don’t use WIFI to control doorlocks, directly or indirectly. But not everybody cares.
