Much needed refresh Love the new app. Built for Android instead of looking like an iOS ripoff. Looks better and connects faster. But the real deal here is auto unlock. Have only used it once and it worked magically. The app still needs some work, but it's a step in the right direction. UPDATE: auto unlock stopped working for some reason. Thought that with the new update to auto unlock that it would work again, but no luck. Works flawlessly with my wife's iPhone, so obviously it's an Android issue.
Lock not showing up in app. For about a month now one of my locks is not showing up in the app on my Galaxy S7 Edge, useless invite system, guests simply don't show up. No Android Wear support, no widgets so that we can simply unlock/lock without having to enter the app, no fingerprint authentication for the app, The August Connect seems to disconnect/freeze sometimes and needs to be manually unplugged and plugged back in to work which defeats the purpose. There's a 50/50 chance that Auto-unlock will work.
Getting better, still problematic Auto unlock works more reliably after the switch to Google Maps services, but still hangs on connect and has unlocked the door hours after I've been home, and tried to unlock it when I'm at the shopping center a mile away. If I had it setup to be controllable via the web, it would be unlocking at all sorts of odd times. Luckily I'm in an apartment, so there's a secondary lock not controlled by August.
Unlocking my Door randomly I'm not sure what happened with the last update, but my lock is unlocking at random times in the middle of the night! Obviously the danger is clear here. Please fix this or let me know how to fix as soon as possible.
Not a product If it was my startup, it would never get a chance to be released like that. My key chain is super genius in comparison with this. Whenever I'm on my way home, have to pray to God to have its stupid auto-unlock work and be hopeful to at least can open the door manually. Sometimes it never connects to my phone at all. At least I can be happy that I can be connected to my wifi behind my apartment door. It's not a product , better to call it garage handmade toy
App is good. But lately it stopped auto unlocking for me, yet still gives the auto unlock report. It could be my phone though. Another issue for me is these notifications. I dismiss them and 4 to 8 times a day they come back. "leaving area" notification for 12 hours ago? It's like I constantly have the last two notifications popping back up silently every hour. It's very bothersome.
New features such as:
-Support for scheduled Keypad Entry Codes
-New Doorbell call notification on the lock screen (this can be disabled at any point in the app settings menu)
-Support for the August Video Recording subscription service
We've also included several bug fixes and usability improvements.
