If you have a recent iPhone 7, you will be able to unlock the August Smart Lock Pro with NFC.

The lock also has an LCD, so you can check the status of the lock and access the security camera in the app. The August Smart Lock Pro is equipped with a siren, so you can alert the emergency services if you find yourself locked inside the house, which can be helpful if you need to scare away a burglar or an intruder.
