    • What features were you looking for that August didn’t provide?

      I just re-read the specs and it looks like the August Pro + Connect Wi-Fi Bridge gives me everything I want. I suppose what made me hesitant was not knowing how well the auto-lock/unlock feature works. This is the main reason I want a smart lock. I don't think auto-lock will be a problem, but I'm not as sure about auto-unlock. If I'm out walking and my GPS is not reporting very accurately will it unlock my door? Or is it using Bluetooth LE so that I need to be much closer to the door? I'm having trouble finding this info on the August site.

      I've also read reports of auto-unlock delays, leading to the home owner just standing at their door waiting for it to unlock. Some have said it was faster to just get the keys out and unlock the door the normal way. Maybe that was an older generation model?

      By the way, thank you chiming in on this! The idea of a smart lock fell off my radar after I got a bit discouraged and now I'm getting excited about it again!
