Today August Home also announces the August Smart Lock Pro (Z-Wave), which will be sold exclusively through the professional installation channel. With Z-Wave Alliance membership, August Home will receive Z-Wave certification for the August Smart Lock Pro (Z-Wave) and will begin distributing to custom home installers this fall. The August Smart Lock is one of the top selling smart locks and August Home is a recognized leader in the smart home.
