Gives Consumers a Complete View of Who’s at the Front Door and What’s Happening Inside and Outside the Home, All from the August App
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--August Home Inc, the leading provider of smart locks and smart home access products and services that make life more simple and secure, today announced a new integration with Nest enabling the August Doorbell Cam to work in sync with the Nest Cam to detect and record motion activity inside and outside the front door. Now, both camera views are available together in the August app for a more contextual view of motion activity and greater peace of mind over the security of the home.
"Video is a powerful aspect of smart security in the connected home. The integration with Nest lets our Doorbell Cam and Nest Cam work together to bridge the gap between activity happening inside and outside the home," said Jason Johnson, CEO of August Home Inc. "As we evolve the August Home experience for customers, we will continue to work with leading smart home innovators like Nest to bring Smarter Home Access to life."
The August Doorbell Cam lets consumers see and speak with visitors at their door, from anywhere, using a smartphone. Nest Cam is an easy-to-use Wi-Fi-enabled security camera with cloud service that lets people stay aware of what's happening at home, no matter where they are.
August Doorbell Cam and Nest Cam work together to show Nest Cam video animations that happen just before or after a visitor rings the doorbell. This includes any information about Activity Zones that have been created to tell Nest Cam to pay closer attention to motion in specific areas. Users can now see the video activity as one complete view, all from the August app.
The August Smart Lock already works with Nest Cam and the Nest Learning Thermostat. Users can view a video animation taken from Nest Cam each time someone enters or exits the home. Users can also set the status of their Nest Thermostat to Home or Away each time the door is unlocked or locked and view the temperature from the August App.
August Smart Home Access Solution
The August Doorbell Cam, August Smart Lock and August Smart Keypad create the complete Smart Home Access solution. The August Doorbell Cam lets consumers see and speak with visitors at the door, from anywhere, using a smartphone. The August Smart Lock turns a smartphone into a smart key where consumers can lock and unlock their door, create virtual keys for guests, and keep track of who comes and goes with a 24/7 activity log. The August Smart Keypad also lets users create unique entry codes for family, friends and service providers to unlock an August Smart Lock without a traditional key or smartphone.
Compatibility and System Requirements
The Nest Cam and Nest Thermostat integrations are available on both iOS and Android versions of the August app.
Customers must have a Nest Aware subscription for their Nest Cam, Dropcam or Dropcam Pro to capture and view video animations in the August Activity Feed.
