August, Yale Smart Locks Now Integrate With Philips Hue Lighting System
The integration will allow users to set their Philips Hue lights to automatically turn on when a door is unlocked, set automated schedules and more.
BERLIN, Conn. — Beginning later this month, August smart locks and Yale Assure Locks with WiFi will work with the Philips Hue lighting system.
The lock companies say the new integration makes accessing homes smarter, while providing users with the peace of mind that their home is secure when they are both home and away.
Users with a WiFi-connected August smart lock or Yale Assure Lock with WiFi installed on their front door and Philips Hue lights with the Philips Hue bridge will be able to enjoy the following new features:
- Welcome Home with Lights: Get a welcome home as your lights turn on and your door unlocks automatically, lighting your way inside.
- Leave Home Worry-Free: Automate lights to simulate a presence at home and gain peace of mind while away.
- Share Access to Your Home: Make guests feel welcome in their home away from home with lights that magically turn on and a door that unlocks via their phone or keypad.
“With door locks and lights playing such integral roles in the home, it makes perfect sense to sync them in a way that streamlines management of the two functions. Both are features of the home that you interact with multiple times a day and have evolved well beyond their initial basic feature sets in the past few years. By integrating your home access and lighting, you’ll be able to make your front door experience even smarter,” the companies said in a joint release. “The addition of Philips Hue to the August and Yale ecosystems is another testament to our commitment to provide integrations with trusted partners that will enhance your smart home experience, particularly in relation to your front door experience.”
