Open your home's door with your smartphone and the $200 August Smart Lock Pro bundle

This August Smart Lock Pro bundle (opens in new tab) is down to $199.99 on Amazon for a limited time. The Smart Lock Pro (opens in new tab) sells for $230 by itself, and this bundle also includes the August Connect, which is $63 separately (opens in new tab). This set has never dropped this low before until today.

The bundle includes a few other things like a DoorSense sensor, adapters and mounting hardware, as well.

The 3rd-gen August Smart Lock Pro can be controlled by your smartphone with Bluetooth, but if you use the Connect you can use your home's Wi-Fi network to add even more control. Use voice commands through Alexa (opens in new tab), Google Assistant (opens in new tab), or Apple HomeKit (opens in new tab). The lock also supports Z-Wave, but you'll need a device with Z-Wave protocols like the SmartThings Hub (opens in new tab) for that.

CNET gives this lock 4 stars and PC Mag gave it 4.5 stars and an Editor's Choice.

  • Uh.... no thank you.
  • I concur. Seems like a bad idea on several levels. Better hope your phone's battery doesn't die!
  • Absolutely not, never.
