  • August’s new 4th-generation August Wi-Fi Smart Lock is currently the best-selling new lock on Amazon’s site, and it’s a great time for you to find out why.
  • On top of the standard features you would expect from any smart lock, this latest August model also adds some unique functionality as well as compatibility with all three top voice assistants: Alexa, Google Assistant, and even Siri.
  • It’s already a great value at its full retail price, but the newest August smart lock happens to be discounted right now in what might be it’s sleekest color option.

Not many companies that helped popularize a new product category back when it was first emerging are still one of the top brands in that category now. August definitely fits the bill though, and it’s pretty easy to see why. What makes August smart locks so successful? We think it all boils down to three things.

First and foremost, August smart locks are wonderfully simple to install. The outer portion of your deadbolt with the key stays in place, and only the inner portion of your lock gets swapped out. Second, August locks are secure and reliable, and the company is constantly improving them with refinements and new features. And third, August’s locks are very affordable compared to the competition — and that’s especially true today.

August’s 4th-generation August Wi-Fi Smart Lock is the latest and greatest product in the company’s catalog. It has all the features that people love from earlier August models, plus it has some new additions like compatibility with all three top voice assistants, including Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri. This model has a new, refined design that is still instantly recognizable as an August lock, and it’s still just as easy to install as ever.

With all that in mind, it’s pretty easy to see why this awesome lock is currently the #1 best-selling new lock on Amazon, and that includes both smart locks and traditional locks. It’s also on sale at a discount today in the sleek black color, so it’s the perfect time to check it out.
