August Smart Lock

Haven Front Door Locks
Front door locks make it inconvenient for robbers to break into your home, but they won’t stop a determined thief. Even deadbolts have their limitations.
Haven attaches to your home’s foundation and sits along the bottom of your door. When engaged, it has 10 times the strength of a deadbolt.
You can activate the lock manually at home by stepping on Haven. You can also control it with a phone app, key fob or web portal.

Flter also blocks malicious ads and uses the Tor network to increase your online anonymity.
