Business description: At August Home, we believe that the door to the home isn’t just about keeping the bad guys out. It’s also about letting the right people in—at the right times, on the right terms, and always under the homeowner’s control. Our commitment is to design products and services that let everyday people monitor and manage entry into their homes from wherever they are. We’ve designed a thoughtful system of products and services that equally delight and comfort. We’ve established partnerships that make it possible for our customers to come home from work and find a sparkling clean house, the pantry stocked, the dog walked, the laundry done, and that pesky leak under the kitchen sink finally fixed. Our goal is to help make life simpler and more secure.
