With support for the Google Assistant on Google Home, August Home is the first company to support all three leading voice control platforms – Apple HomeKit with Siri, Amazon Alexa, and the Google Assistant. With the August smart home devices, customers now have the flexibility to choose their preferred platform and device for controlling the August Smart Lock.
With the Google Assistant on Google Home, you can lock the door or check if the door is locked by saying, “Ok Google, ask August, lock my door” or “Ok Google, ask August if my door is locked.” August is working with the Google team to add additional features such as unlocking that will be available later this year. Using the August Smart Lock with Google Assistant-enabled devices also requires the August Connect Wi-Fi Bridge to connect the Bluetooth lock to Wi-Fi.
