The August Smart Lock is a smart, low-cost pick if you are looking for a simple way to give your house some smarts without disrupting your household's routine. It's smartphone-size rectangular aluminum case fits easily onto the back of your door. Better yet, it's simple to install. A neat latching mechanism attaches the August Lock to a new backplate without needing any new screws or bolts.

This useful smart home device also includes support for Amazon Alexa and Google Home and Assistant. We found both of these to be easy to set up and use, and both offer an extra level of security by requiring a security code to remotely unlock the door.

You'll need the bridge to access the August Smart Lock's full features, but today's massive price slash makes the bundle much more affordable than before.
