The Z-Wave Alliance, a global membership organisation dedicated to advancing the popular Z-Wave wireless smart home protocol, welcomes leading smart lock provider August Home to its membership. August Home joins over 450 members in supporting the Z-Wave standard in smart homes all over the world.
August Smart Lock Pro
August Home has also announced the August Smart Lock Pro (Z-Wave), which will be sold exclusively through the professional installation channel. With Z-Wave Alliance membership, August Home will receive Z-Wave certification for the August Smart Lock Pro (Z-Wave) and will begin distributing to custom home installers this fall. The August Smart Lock is one of the top selling smart locks and August Home is a recognised leader in the smart home. Adding Z-Wave interoperability gives security and CE installers the ability to integrate the August Smart Lock into their Z-Wave installations.
Mainstream smart home adoption
“August Home has been a leader in mainstream smart home adoption and we’re thrilled to welcome them to the fold,” said Mitchell Klein, executive director of the Z-Wave Alliance. “The August Smart Lock Pro (Z-Wave) will allow existing security dealers for Z-Wave-backed systems like ADT, Vivint, Qolsys and Alarm.com to potentially integrate August into their projects. We continue to see reputable brands in the space committing to the Z-Wave standard; it is a testament to our reach, interoperability and strong device security.”
"Z-Wave is already the market leader in wireless control with millions of compatible products trusted for reliability and interoperability," said Nate Williams, CRO for August Home Inc. "By joining the Z-Wave Alliance, we are bringing access control through the August Smart Lock, which is the number one selling lock in retail, to our professional installers and security channels."
