MONI Adds August Home Smart Locks to Portfolio

DALLAS — MONI Smart Security (formerly Monitornics) is partnering with August Home, a provider of smart locks and other devices for the smart home, to expands its residential and commercial customer base.

“With our smart solutions for total control over the front door, we’re helping MONI’s trusted dealer network deliver best-in-class products to their customers as they embrace this new era of security for the connected home,” says Mike Buckingham, director, August Pro division, August Home. “Our products are easy to setup and will allow installers to expand their portfolio of smart security solutions.”

With the August Smart Lock and August Connect Wi-Fi bridge, MONI customers can securely manage their front door from anywhere via a smartphone app, according to a news release. August Smart Lock users can control access to their front door by issuing virtual keys for specific dates and times or monitor access through instant notifications when someone unlocks and locks the door. Then review access with a 24/7 activity feed of all activity at the front door. August Connect, an accessory to the Smart Lock, lets users instantly let guests in remotely and confirm the door is locked any time.

August Home products integrate with the Honeywell Total Connect 2.0 Remote Services platform. This allows MONI dealers who install Total Connect as part of their solution for monitored security to offer customers the ability to lock and unlock their door and control access to the front door remotely from a smartphone.

“We select our products and partners very carefully, maintaining a high level of quality in everything we deliver to customers allowing our dealers to be more competitive,” says Bruce Mungiguerra, senior vice president of operations for MONI. “We’re thrilled to add the August Smart Lock and August Connect to the already robust suite of products and services MONI offers.”

August Home products are distributed nationally by ADI.
