Giving a Virtual Key to the Personal Butlers Filing In and Out of Your Home
A Hello Alfred and August Locks partnership for an automated home empowers your on-demand home managers with virtual access
Hello Alfred and August Locks announced a partnership today which could prove to be the key copy killer.
Hello Alfred is a platform that brings together the best on-demand and local services to put your home on autopilot, while the August Smart Lock allows you to send a virtual key to anyone you choose to have access to your home. The partnership combines access through August’s smart lock technology with Alfred’s dedicated and vetted home managers.
Nowadays when we think of the smart home, what we have in mind is typically the intelligent devices and technology integrated into your infrastructure. The human service layer has to date been left out of this assimilation. Unified with August Smart lock, Alfred brings the concierge services of a five-star hotel into a more intuitive smart home. Cofounder and CEO of Hello Alfred Marcela Sapone tells PSFK why, amid ample smart home products, August was the lock of choice.
