It allows someone to retrofit their front door’s existing deadbolt, so they can auto-lock and unlock the door with just a smartphone — no need to use keys. AND it also works with all 3 voice assistants, Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Siri – so you can control your locks with just your voice.

AND when you bundle the August Smart Lock with the Yale Navis Paddle (about $35) you have a “hands-free” front door.
