August Smart Lock: The Deadbolt of the Future

I get a little queasy with the prospect of replacing things like door locks with digital locks. However, the August Smart Lock is an interesting marriage of the old and the new: it's a smart door locking system that uses your existing padlock.

With August you can lock/unlock your door with your smartphone, and you can remotely let people in your home based on their phone number. You'll never have to make a replacement key or leave a key under a mat again.
