August’s new lock features a couple of important changes: built-in Wi-Fi and a much smaller body. We’ve liked August’s previous offerings, and this is the best one yet. The August Wi-Fi Smart Lock proves itself as the best retrofit smart lock and wins CNET’s Editors’ Choice award.

The $250 lock is expensive, but we talk about why the cost is worth it if you want retrofit smarts for your front door.

You can buy the August Wi-Fi Smart Lock from Best Buy:
