August Home is a company that is well-known for its internet-connected smart locks. This product already works with most of the door locks that you will generally come across within the United States and Canada. However, the company has yet to create a solution that can be used in conjunction with a style of lock that is known as the Mortise. This lock represents a smaller market share within the United States, but it is in fact a very popular type of lock overseas. This is particularly true in Europe.
Things are about to change. August Home has indicated that they plan to create a new smart lock that will have the ability to work with Mortise locks. August Home CEO Jason Johnson has indicated that they are already seeing their locks appear in countries beyond North America, which is currently the only place in which August Home manufactures and distributes its products. As their products continue to appear in countries around the world, August Home hopes to continue making moves that will eventually allow them to distribute and release products around the world.
In the meantime, August Home is working on a partnership with Logitech Pop, which will include creating a very simple, but profoundly effective button. The main purpose of this button will be to give people the ability to turn off TVs, lights, and even lock doors, with the simple push of a button.
In the end, August Home hopes to continue working on becoming a more open platform, as users look for ways to better protect their homes.
