  • Works but has issues
    Verified BuyerReviewed by rml23 - June 26, 2020

    This was a replacement for a 2nd generation lock that stopped working. That one used an Apple TV as a bridge for wifi. It generally worked and it never lost the wifi connection. This one has lost the wifi connection twice already and I have had to type in the password to fix it. The app is also iffy on this, as one one of two iPhones I can't set the auto unlock (it just keeps showing the auto-lock screen instead). Speaking of auto-unlock, the old lock auto-unlocked when the car pulled up in the driveway. This one unlocks when I'm right at the front door. So I'm not sure the wifi does much. Still, I love not having to have a front door key.

  • High Expectations
    Verified BuyerReviewed by RWC89 - June 20, 2020

    I had very high expectations for this product coming from the 3rd Gen Smart Lock. Out of the box, it would not set up with my Android phones. I spent over an hour with August Support attempting everything in the book, with no success. I later attempted the installation with my daughters iPad, and it worked. After some screen recordings, and logs, in the end I was informed this issue is still under investigation. Approaching a month with this Smart Lock and auto-unlock works about 50% of the time, at best. It unlocks a full minute too-late, or not at all. So far this lock has been disappointing, I hope it gets better with future firmware updates.

  • Does exactly what I thought it would...
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Luke - June 11, 2020

    I was really excited for the launch of the lock, and purchased at the first chance I could. I purchased it for a private home, not for a rental property. The lock itself was really easy to install and setup on the app. After an update, it has worked perfectly. If I were to have any complaint, it would be the battery. We have had the lock for roughly a month, and we have to replace the batteries. This is all okay, except the battery type is less common (CR123's or 123A's) than the standard Walmart/Target offering, so finding batteries has not been straight-forward. All in all, I am very content with the app and the lock performance.
