The Smart Locks feature DoorSense, an integrated sensor that tells users if their door is open or closed. While previous August Smart Locks could automatically lock after a set time, with DoorSense, the door lock can be set to instantly lock when the door is closed.
The Smart Lock Pro also includes Active Monitoring, a beta of “smarter alerts” for the events that are most important to users. At launch, this will include all alerts for activity at the door including a DoorSense alert notifying the user if their door is left ajar for a set amount of time. New alerts notifying the users about specific activities that happen during a set time frame will be added shortly, according to the company.
The August Doorbell Cam Pro sends users an alert whenever motion is detected in front of the door. In addition to the integrated flood light, the Doorbell Cam Pro includes a new feature called HindSight.
The Smart Locks are now available while the Doorbell Cam Pro is available for pre-order, with shipping expected Oct. 10, 2017.
