"When the Smart Lock identifies your Bluetooth signal approaching, it unlocks your door, and can lock it behind you if you choose that setting. It also allows you to set up virtual keys for guests, with the ability to grant access for only certain dates and times for each key. The activity log keeps track of when each unique user comes and goes. Perhaps the best part about this smart home upgrade is that it goes over your existing lock, meaning that you can have strong security and an intelligent lock. If you choose, you can pair the Smart Lock with the ‘August Connect' for $79, which lets guests in and locks the door behind them. The Connect also grants real time status of locked or unlocked, and alerts you instantly when somebody comes or goes. ""Another smart technology product, the smart smoke detector, could not only save you money approximately 5% on your insurance premiums, but could even save your life," said UpNest. "One 2014 CBS news report cites a figure of 2/3 of all home fire fatalities occurring in residences where the smoke detectors are missing or disabled which is something many of us have resorted to at one time or other out of sheer frustration when our typical ‘dumb' detector insists on shrieking an alarm every time we try to fry up some bacon. A smart detector will allow you to keep on frying without fear of interruption. Two such products, the Birdi and the Nest Protect, will not only monitor smoke but also carbon dioxide and general air quality. They can even send an alert to your smart phone or tablet if anything is amiss.

I usually don’t write reviews but this last update is really frustrating me. Been using the app for over a year, it’s usually been good but this last update July 2019 has made my cameras almost worthless as I can’t control them half the time anymore. It’s so buggy now like if I’m home for example and try to switch to night mode so I have them on when I go to bed, it just flickers the mode status icon and stays in home mode. LUCKILY the time schedule seems to still work so I use that to switch it right now but obviously you should be able to switch modes manually if you want like you used to. Also, over half the time now if I come home, it doesn’t switch to home mode anymore. If I open the app THEN quit and reopen it, it finally sees I’m home and shuts off the cameras.
