Essence’s WeR@Home Solution First to Add August Smart Lock Pro Z-Wave Compatibility
Essence’s WeR@HomeTM has added another ecosystem option for its connected living services platform with the integration of the Z-Wave enabled August Smart Lock Pro, which delivers keyless entry and remote control and monitoring.
Essence WeR@Home lets users seamlessly and remotely manage their smart homes in real time from anywhere, at any time, and on any screen. Now, the solution leverages Z-Wave compatibility to add yet another smart access option.
A special feature of the August Smart Lock Pro is is DoorSense™, the first intelligent, integrated sensor that tells users if the door is open or closed.
Z-Wave expands interoperability among home automation devices via wireless communication protocols. Having the Z-Wave-compatible August Smart Lock Pro, currently available in North and South America, as part of the WeR@Home system is just one more way Essence addresses consumers’ real need to make everyday life more simple and convenient. WeR@Home is already compatible with technologies like Nest.
“Essence is focused on simplifying the adoption of IoT for our customers,” said Yaniv Amir, President of Essence USA. “As the first to integrate the August Smart Lock Z-Wave capabilities, we increase the options for complete home safety, security, and management.”
