Our homes are increasingly filled with gadgets that connect to the internet in ways that rightly have us concerned for our privacy and security. But when discussing those concerns, it's important to keep a level head and consider just what kind of privacy and security concerns actually stem from using these products, and in what instances they might actually enhance both for you in real, tangible ways. And like surveillance cameras, we think smart locks fall into such a category: they can actually make your home safer and more secure than a traditional, "dumb" lock, and they do it all while bringing a tremendous amount of convenience.
If you happen to be looking for a smart lock this Cyber Monday, the third-generation August Smart Lock is currently on sale for $55.30 at Amazon — its lowest price yet. As this lock typically sells at prices within the $95-110 range, this marks a rather sizeable discount on this smart-home security staple.
Do you need a smart door lock? If so, the third-generation August Smart Lock is down to $76.62 on Amazon, its lowest recorded price. The lock usually goes for around $100-112, so this is a decent discount if you're interested in bolstering your home's security.
Smart locks usually involve a tedious installation process which can be intimidating for many, especially if you rent and don't want to lose that deposit. A good option to get around this is an August Smart Lock, which can be retrofitted on existing locks without much effort. Today's Father's Day sale knocks the price of the Smart Lock Pro's 'Smarter Hosting Bundle' down to $206, a whole 25% or $72 less than anywhere else.
In all the hubbub around the smart home, we often talk about light bulbs, cameras, and other things that it's easy to tell a virtual assistant to act on. One thing that I see less often than others is the front door, rather the deadbolt that seals the entrance to your sanctum. One of the better brands for that, August's third-generation Smart Lock is currently on sale for the low price of $99, its lowest on Amazon.
