August Home Expands Connected Home Services for Honeywell Security Through Total Connect App
August Smart Lock Integration Will Allow Customers to Manage
Their Front Door and Home Security from a Single Mobile App
SAN FRANCISCO, April 4, 2016 — August Home Inc, the leading provider of smart locks and smart home access products and services that make life more simple and secure and Honeywell, a global leader in home security, today announced that Honeywell will integrate the August Smart Lock with the award-winning Honeywell Total Connect® 2.0 Remote Services platform. This will allow homeowners to lock and unlock their door and control access to the front door remotely – all from a smartphone.
Honeywell will showcase the August Smart Lock integration with the Total Connect 2.0 Remote Services platform in its booth (Honeywell booth #1425) at ISC West in Las Vegas, April 6-8.
“Honeywell selected us as a smart lock partner for its Total Connect remote services platform because of our approach to security and control within home automation. Our relationship with Honeywell signifies that our Smart Lock is now integrated with the leading security platforms,” said Jason Johnson, CEO at August Home Inc.
Johnson continued, “Honeywell Total Connect goes beyond keeping homeowners safe by integrating smart home services that offer comfort, convenience and 24/7 awareness. Our Smart Lock delivers on that mission and makes unprecedented visibility and control over their front door a key feature of the Total Connect platform.”
Honeywell Total Connect 2.0 Remote Services allows homeowners to control their security systems, receive text messages and email alerts—even view live video, locate vehicles or assets, control thermostats and lighting—anytime, anywhere on iPhone®, iPad® or Android™ devices. The addition of the August Smart Lock lets homeowners conveniently lock and unlock their doors via the Honeywell Total Connect app on their iPhone® or iPad® devices.
“We live in a connected world where remote solutions are emerging almost every day,” said Alice DeBiasio, General Manager, Cloud Services at Honeywell. “Honeywell’s third-party integration initiative is helping to expand the Total Connect ecosystem while simplifying the experience for end users. Incorporating the August Smart Lock into the Total Connect environment is a prime example of Honeywell’s ability to widen its product portfolio and provide complete control through one intuitive app.”
August Smart Home Access and Total Connect
The August Smart Lock turns a smartphone into a smart key where consumers can lock and unlock their door from anywhere using a smartphone. Additionally, with the August App, Total Connect homeowners can create virtual keys for guests and keep track of who comes and goes with a 24/7 activity log, all from a smartphone. The Smart Lock offers auto-unlock/lock, making it incredibly easy to enter the home without having to fumble for keys or a smartphone and leave the home secured with the door locked behind them.
The August Smart Lock replaces only the interior side of most standard deadbolts; the exterior door hardware stays the same, which means consumers can use a traditional key at any time.
Honeywell Total Connect 2.0 Remote Services platform iOS app with the August Smart Lock integration will be available tomorrow.
August builds smart home access products and services that are safer than traditional keys, make life easier, and put you in control of your front door from anywhere in the world. With August products, you can create virtual keys to your home and easily grant access to house cleaners, dog walkers, delivery services, guests, friends, and family—and control how long that access lasts—all from your smartphone. August products work together, integrate with other smart devices and services, and are designed to fit naturally and elegantly into the home. Founded by technology entrepreneur Jason Johnson and renowned designer Yves Béhar, August is headquartered in San Francisco, California.
