Do You Have an August SmartLock and Connect?
« on: January 09, 2018, 07:00:32 pm »
Iíve had an August SmartLock for several months now, but Iíve been too cheap to spring for the August Connect WiFi Bridge ($62) to make it work with Amazon.  To date Iíve had it connected to my AppleTV via HomeKit and it does 90% of what Iíve wanted it to do.  But on Feb. 1st Iím moving from an apartment to a house Iím buying and as part of that move Iím going to have to make the decision to fully commit to the Echo or going with HomeKit.

One of the things that has held me back from buying a Connect is the number of negative reviews I see for it.  But many (most?) of those were prior to a recent firmware update.  So if you have a lock with the Connect bridge Iíd be very interested in hearing your experience.
