August has long made some of the best smart locks you can buy, and now its third-generation lock has been discounted significantly. The 3rd-generation August Smart Lock is on sale for $81.99 at Best Buy, which is $68 cheaper than the standard price of $149.99. It’s also on sale at Amazon for $106.18.

There are a number of reasons the lock is such a great option. The lock is super easy to install because it works with your existing deadbolt, so you don’t have to get rid of your existing keys to use the lock manually. 

One of the best things about the lock is that it makes it easy to allow others into your home without having to share keys. In the August app, you can quickly and easily add another user, and then revoke access when they no longer need it, which is a nice touch.

The August Smart Lock allows you to control your lock from your phone, so if you happen to go to bed and forget to lock the door, you don’t necessarily have to get back up. 

Out of the box, the August Smart Lock doesn’t work remotely, but if you buy the August Connect, you’ll be able to control the lock from anywhere you have an internet connection. Plus, the lock will work with other smart home ecosystems, including Apple HomeKit, Google Assistant, and Amazon Alexa.
