I have used August for years now, and have always loved it. Now, it's basically useless! I have to rush in the app to open before the app crashes, it tries to connect through WiFi first and even though I have a bridge it will jump to Bluetooth afterwards. Should start with Bluetooth and switch to WiFi afterwards if it doesn't find it with BT. Most importantly, the app doesnt work and hasnt for a while. At first I assumed it was just auto unlock, but the whole app crashes every time I open it!

7/29/22. Auto unlock broke two updates ago. Everything has been reset, and support was quick to give additional things to try. This functionality does get broken in the app and it takes a few versions to get back. What would be great is if they rolled back to a working product while they figure out what went wrong. 5/15/24...The app has been broken for a couple weeks now. Reaching out to August for help has been useless. Can they at least roll back to a working version?

A little clunky learning all the ins and outs, but once you get it this whole thing is worth it. Approaching my locked front door and hearing it unlock just as I walk up to it is great. Had a major issue though with customer support and a keypad not working and I'm pretty pissed with the "resolution", knocked off 1 star
