Smart Speakers are the modern day assistants designed to answer your unanswered questions, make online purchases, and play your favorite songs, all at your request. August locks are one of the only smart locks on the market that works with all three major smart speakers: Apple HomePod, Amazon Echo, and Google Home, as well as, their Assistants: Siri, Alexa, and the Google Assistant. With the August Connect Wi-Fi Bridge, your August Smart Lock or August Smart Lock Pro are enabled to integrate with these Smart Speakers and Assistants. Without the August Connect Wi-Fi Bridge, you can control these locks through your Android or iPhone app voice assistants: Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant.
