Nest vs. August Locks: Our Honest Review

Nest vs. August Locks: Our Honest Review

Nest_VS_August_Locks

The Big Debate…

How do you know what lock brand to choose when there are so many options out there?!! We have narrowed it down to two brands… Nest and August. These brands seem to be the most popular Smart Locks used for Airbnb’s.

Lock_Key_Pad

We have personally tried out each of them and are now able to give an honest review of each option.

Pros and Cons of Nest

Nest_Smart_Lock_In_Kitchen

Pros

Reliable and convenient

Codes are still available when it goes offline.

Cons

Doesn’t connect to Airbnb… However, if you just sit down one day a week and plug in all of your codes then you are good!

You can only have three locks connected to your account on the app.

Pros and Cons of August

August_Smart_Lock_Keypad

Pros

It automatically sends your guests their code. Currently its the only lock that is currently connected to Airbnb.

There is no limit on the number of locks connected to your account.

Cons

It disconnects often from my Airbnb account.

The battery dies quickly.

It is not always reliable if Wifi goes out.

If the lock is under one roof with more than one apartment, it gets confused with the lock on your front door and will try to connect to the one on the back door.

Which One We Choose…

Annnnnnnddddd the winner is… BOTH!!!

Each of us have a different need… we need to be able to have multiple locks on the app.
