The most affordable August Smart Lock is $50 cheaper today

The third-generation August Smart Lock is just $100 at Amazon.

Sometimes smart home devices are loved by everyone, and sometimes opinions differ. That’s the case with today’s deal, the third-generation August Smart Lock, which is $100 at Amazon today. That’s close to $32 off its most recent sale price, and a full $50 off its retail price.

Now, here’s the thing. Our TechHive colleague and smart home guru, Christopher Null, didn’t really like the third-generation August Smart Lock, giving it 2.5 out of five stars. Amazon users, however, rate it four out of five and seem to love it as of this writing. We’d recommend having a look at our review (link above), and then reading reviews and comments on Amazon to make up your own mind. At only $100 it might be worth the risk. That’s a steep discount.

The third-gen August Smart Lock comes in silver or dark gray. It allows for keyless entry to designated people, and it can monitor who is entering and exiting the home. You can give keyless access to different people for a few minutes, hours, days, weeks, or permanently—it’s up to you. It also attaches to your existing deadbolt so you don’t have to get a new set of keys.

The lock is compatible with Amazon’s Alexa and Google Assistant for locking the door with just your voice—a handy tool when you’re in bed and aren’t sure if you locked up for the night. Echo users also get a nifty feature that lets you combine Alexa with an August Doorbell Cam and an Echo Show or Spot to unlock your door with a voice command and a PIN while watching the door’s video feed.

The lock also supports Apple’s HomeKit, Z-Wave Plus, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth.

[Today’s deal: August Smart Lock 3rd generation for $99.39.]

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
