Loving it!! But!

I work in IT and am now stuck working from home. So I figured, why not make life easier. Long story short, I'm transforming my home into a smart home... I decided to get the August smart lock after reading many reviews, to allow access to my door stairs door. Living on the second floor and having to run downstairs 2-3 times a day for mail or delivery gets annoying after doing it for a year! I just installed it yesterday everything works perfectly, even flush-mounted the sensor. I love DIY! My favorite part is the auto-unlock feature. I hate fumbling for keys while my hands are full or the weather is weathering. Now, for the BUT! The App is pretty limited when it comes to setting user permissions under ‘Access Level’. For instance, there's only Owner, Guest, and none. How about adding ‘Family’ group. Members who you want to give certain permissions like ‘Auto-unlock’ and ‘Activity Feed’ so they can receive phone alerts that the door is open or ajar, but do not have access to changing settings of the device. I think ‘App Access’ is laid out well and makes sense. Please consider adding that ability it’d be very helpful. Thank you!

Ooh and another thing. Since August in integrated with Alexa and has DoorSense and is able to tell if the door is open or ajar after 1 min why not have the skill notify Alexa devices.

Inconsistent Functionality

I purchased the August Pro expecting that this lock would open as I approach the door. It rarely opens the lock as expected. Maybe two times since Jan 2018. Upon calling tech support, and after I gave him the problem and use scenario, his questions centered on other Bluetooth devices that are on or around me when I expect the door to unlock. Let’s see, Apple iPhone X, Apple watch, and Apple AirPods. Then he immediately focused in on the AirPods. The technician said to me that the August Pro does NOT work well with Apple AirPods and it is a known “issue”. I asked “known to whom??”, known to August apparently but no one else knows that would be involved in the presale process it seems. If the BestBuy rep told me about this problem, I simply would not have purchased it. I lay responsibility for this “known” problem squarely on August and the lack of communication to its resellers about this problem so that consumers can be warned BEFORE a purchase is made. Very irresponsible!! So after all the time, effort and energy with this electronic yet manual lock, I will remove and return it. The funny thing is that Bluetooth wireless communication has an industry standard well established so that manufacture’s can develop products that will smoothly integrate and work with (reject) other Bluetooth devices within 30ft. How did August design such an inept system using Bluetooth??

please disable the automatic selection of wifi or bluetooth

a recent app update introduced an automatic selection of wifi vs bluetooth when connecting to a lock; that significantly slows down unlocking, to the point where i have had to pull the wifi bridges on any locks i want to access fast; the way i use august — as i walk toward one of my ten doors equipped with august locks, i issue an unlock command from the iphone control center; this used to work amazingly well with bluetooth as it would connect and unlock by the time i have managed to walk up to the door; with the recent autoselection it tries wifi first, which is slow, then as i am very near the door it connects to it with bluetooth, and entirely and completely forgets to issue the unlock command which i had tapped from control center, so now i have to tap again; feels so clunky and slow, and so much worse than how it worked before this “feature” was introduced

in general with August in my 3 years of ownership of v1 and v3 locks, and continues daily use of the app, I see such awful design decisions and so much time before they decide to backtrack... for crying out loud, you just had it working perfectly for a few months, how about quick making these half baked changes while you are ahead, or at least let us opt out or may be provide feedback to you prerelease because clearly you don’t get how some of us use your products
