August lock integration

Re: August lock integration

Unless you spend more money on equipment you probably don’t need (like me), it will never happen. They keep talking integration. I’m still waiting. I just want to unlock my door while watching the camera.

Re: August lock integration

I was able to pair my August lock to the base station using Zwave and it was working last night where I could unlock/lock from within the Ring app. As of this morning, it is showing a status of "Unlocked" even though it is locked. It seems as though it's no longer syncing correctly to the base station. Is there a fix for this issue?

Re: August lock integration

how did you pair the ring and the lock?

Re: August lock integration

In the Ring app, I added a new device. Selected locks and access controllers and then selected the zwave option. Then I selected add manually. Then switched over to the August app and selected the zwave settings. I was able to follow the remaining instructions in the August app and pair the two devices together. It worked beautifully that night but then it completely broke the next morning. The Ring app would consistently show the lock as unlocked even though it was locked. The August app would throw me in a continuous error loop when I try to access the zwave settings again. I had to do a factory reset on the August lock and then force a removal of the device in the Ring app.

Has August integrated yet?

Re: August lock integration

I still can’t believe, no integration for over a year now after announcement. That too by a company owned by tech giant Amazon. I am sure they have engineers who could do this integration while partying on a yatch over pacific.

Re: August lock integration

Works for me. August lock connected (z-wave) to the Ring hub. Shows up as an alarm device with very basic controls (lock/unlock, alerts on/off, and battery indicator). The more advanced lock features work from/in the August app.

Getting the thing to connect to the Ring hub was sketchy. I used 2 devices (one with Ring app, the other with August) after having the process hang when trying to use one device.
Connecting the lock to the htook a few trials. I honestly couldn't tell you the order I used - I used the "hit and miss" method!

Re: August lock integration

Yes. It's possible to do this via the "other z wave device" method. I've done this. But watch out. Your August battery life will drop like a rock, and you will occasionally get wrong status of the lock. Without proper integration it's not worth the trouble.
