August Smart Lock Pro Release Notes

Preface

For information on Z-Wave and ClareHome, see Installing Z-Wave with ClareHome.

Notes

  • When installing Z-Wave devices, ensure that there is nothing inhibiting their signal. Z-Wave relies on radio signals. Metal or thick walls may limit their signal strength.
  • We recommend having 2 or more repeating Z-Wave devices that support beaming.

Introduction

The August Smart Lock Pro is a Z-Wave door lock. The August door lock works with your existing door lock, allowing it to be controlled via Z-Wave. The lock integrates with ClareHome via the Z-Wave network. Installers only need to pair (add) the unit into the ClareHome. The locks provide real time lock status indications.

By integrating the lock into the ClareHome control system, your customers can control the door lock from their Android or iOS devices.

Note: The August Smart Lock Pro does not support PIN codes.

Installing and programming the August Smart Lock Pro

Only qualified installation technicians should install August Smart Door Lock. Follow the installation and programming instructions that came with your August equipment. We recommend that you pair the lock with the ClareHome Z-Wave controller before installing it in the door.

Notes

  • You must be within 6 feet of the controller for the lock to pair.
  • The door lock is configurable using the ClareHome app, the Clare Controls Install Assist app, and Fusion.
  • The August Home app is required to install and pair the August Smart Lock Pro.
