August Home, maker of smart locks, closes $25M in Series C funding

August Homes' funding boost highlights growing adoption of technology that can streamline property showings
  • The technology overlaps with alternatives or supplements traditional lockboxes, such as Master Lock's Bluetooth Lock Box, Prempoint and Toor.
  • Each product allows homebuyers to use their smartphones to pop in and out of homes with the permission of agents or homeowners.

Smart lock provider August Home is gearing up to boost the reach of products that turn smartphones into “a command center for the front door.”
