LAS VEGAS, April 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ISC West – SimpliSafe®, maker of award-winning home security systems, and August Home (ISC West booth #33607), the leading provider of smart locks and smart home access products and services, today announced a partnership to integrate SimpliSafe home security systems with August Smart Locks.

The integration allows SimpliSafe customers to automate locking and unlocking their August Smart Lock and August Smart Lock Pro in sync with arming and disarming the SimpliSafe security system. This ensures that customers’ homes can be protected by both a locked door and monitored security system when they leave during the day and go to bed at night.

“Our mission is to make every home secure,” said Chad Laurans, SimpliSafe’s founder and CEO. “We’ve taken the time to work hand-in-hand with the August Home team to ensure that the integration offers not only convenience, but also the strongest, most reliable protection possible, building on our promise of a total home security platform.”

Seamless Access Control & More Security
When customers disarm their system through the SimpliSafe Key Fob, Keypad or mobile app, their August Smart Lock Pro or August Smart Lock will automatically unlock to provide smooth access to their home. Similarly, when customers arm their security system, their August Smart Lock will lock, adding another layer of home protection.

In addition, customers can control their system and locks from anywhere. Now when a guest needs to get in—like your dog-walker or the sitter—you can unlock your door and disarm your SimpliSafe system right from the mobile app, and then easily lock and re-arm the system.

“The integration with SimpliSafe combines state-of-the-art security with secure keyless entry to your home. With the touch of a button, users can now arm and lock or disarm and unlock their door, adding another layer of security and control to users’ smart home automation,” said Jason Johnson, co-founder and CEO for August Home.

Compatibility
The SimpliSafe and August Smart Lock integration will be available in May 2018 to all SimpliSafe customers subscribed to its interactive professional alarm monitoring plan. Integrating the August Smart Lock or August Smart Lock Pro with SimpliSafe requires an August Connect Wi-Fi Bridge to connect the Bluetooth lock to Wi-Fi.
