August smart locks can now let the delivery driver into your home

From Engadget - January 9, 2018

Dubbed "August Access" the new feature will work on all August Smart Locks, as well as Yale residential locks and a smattering of commercial ones (ie the ones at the main entrance of apartment complexes). So, if you order same-day delivery from a website that's partnered with Deliv, you will have the option to opt in for in-home delivery. Doing so generates a one-time password that the delivery driver can use to open the August lock and gain access. And to make sure that there's no shenanigans taking place, customers can watch the delivery take place in real time or view a recording of it later.
