Allows End Users to Lock or Unlock any door with August Locks and View Status

AMSTERDAM, NL (February 11, 2020)—URC, a global leader in smart automation and control for residential and commercial applications, launched today a 2-way IP module for integration of its award-winning Total Control system with August Smart Lock and Smart Lock Pro door locks.  The module, available end of February to authorized URC installers via URC’s dealer portal, allows end users using any URC Total Control touch screen or the Total Control smartphone application to control and view status of compatible August Smart Locks door lock models via the URC Total Control System.

“We are continuing to expand our ecosystem of compatible products with our Total Control smart automation system, and August Locks provide an easy and elegant solution for custom installers, since the product attaches to the existing deadbolt, so consumers don’t have to change their keys,” said Lars Granoe, URC’s Vice President of Product Management.

This two-way module allows homeowners using a URC Total Control touch screen or the URC smartphone app the ability to lock, unlock, and view the status of any and all doors in their home that have an August Smart lock or August Smart Lock Pro installed from any URC Total Control interface.

Authorized URC commercial integrators will be able to easily download the two-way IP module from URC’s dealer portal and add it into their projects when the module is available end of February.
