More new tech for the smart home: August Home.

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, May 5, 2016

More new tech for the smart home.    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     The August Smart Lock has won lots of fans for its ease of installation….it works with the existing door hardware in your home.   It works from the inside and lets you control access to your home from your smartphone anywhere in the world.   It can also unlock your door automatically when you approach the door.     New is the company’s Doorbell Cam.  August Home Chief Marketing Officer Kathy Sanders….

“The August Doorbell Cam connects to your existing doorbell wiring and it has Bluetooth technology communication to the smart lock.  What the doorbell cam does, the August Doorbell Cam,  is it communicates to the lock, so you have the option to not only see and speak to people who walk up to the door,  or ring the doorbell, but you can actually decide if you want to let them in or not.”

Pretty cool and smart.   There’s more info at August.com.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
