Comes with a door-sense sensor and works with apps like Google Home for $129. It doesn’t work with some other apps like Apple and is a bit noisy at times though. The lock can be installed in several minutes and uses DoorSense to give the user information constantly whether the door is closed or opened, when the user is not at home.
This August as compared to the August Pro, has a more traditional design. It is around thrice as large and wider than the August Pro. It uses more technology and lesser equipment with a latch that can be turned to unlock it. But the design looks a bit less plain than the August Pro. But when using apps to control the lock, it tends to get noisier.

I still want to reiterate about the DoorSense. It is a very good function to inform the user whether the door is locked so that important valuables does not get lost. When tested, it gave clear condition of the door. But the bad thing is that this August product is not compatible with some apps like Apple anymore. If you are an iPhone user and you wish to use a lock like this, you can consider using other products of August like the August Pro. Voice commands can be used to command the app through the phone.
You can make the lock connect to WiFi also by topping an additional $79 to allow the lock to have this function. So the total cost will be $199.
I think that this lock is a very good lock with good features like DoorSense that makes it appealing to buyers. So I think people that wants a safe lock that will keep your valuables in place, this will be the right choice for you.
