I currently have a second generation August smart lock on my door. It works fine, generally. At times Siri will say it’s not responding but it will eventually unlock or lock the door per my command. I presently use it without the August connect plug-in accessory. It’s my understanding that using it in this manner allows it to connect to the Apple TV for HomeKit support. I understand that if I purchase the August connect it will connect to that device for HomeKit connectivity. Given at the Apple TV is farther away from the August, I was thinking that it may have a more liable connection if I purchased the connect. What is your experience with the August smart lock? Have any of you tried it with and without the August connect? Is it worth the extra money to buy the connect? I’m also concerned that if I set it up with the connect and don’t like it or think it’s worth the money when I take that component away the HomeKit compatibility will somehow get messed up.
