Abstimmungsergebnis: Ziemlich unheimlich
This smart lock from August uses a Bluetooth connection to unlock your door. That means you and your phone or Apple Watch have to be close by (about 30 feet or so) to unlock your door. These smart locks also have an auto-lock that let you set your door to automatically lock up to 30 minutes after you leave. Or auto-unlock when you get home so if you hands are full, no fumbling for your phone. Are Bluetooth smart locks safe? Many security experts recommend against them as Bluetooth technology has shown to have some well-known security vulnerabilities.

Was könnte passieren, wenn etwas schiefgeht?

Security researchers found a vulnerability in a version of August's smart locks that use the Connect add-on to connect to WiFi that could let hackers take over your home WiFi. This smart lock connects via Bluetooth with the Connect add-on and option to connect it to your WiFi. This is a good reminder that smart locks bring convenience and some added layer of security in that you can track who comes and goes to your home and give temporary access to people like your babysitter and then revoke that access after a set period of time. But smart locks also come with some additional security concerns. August doesn't sell user data, which is good. Still, it wouldn't be any fun to get locked out of your own home because of a security flaw in your smart lock.

Verbesserungsbedürftig

Older versions of the August Smart Lock that pair with the August Connect may make your Wifi network vulerable to hackers. August was notified about the vulnerability in December 2019, but may not have fixed the problem. August implies that this problem is low risk.
