August seems to be close to launching a redesigned doorbell camera as its first new hardware since it was acquired by the giant lock conglomerate Assa Abloy in 2017. Dave Zatz unveiled images of the new doorbell, which looks like a major improvement from The company's original model doesn't look like a doorbell at all.
The doorbell could be launched next to a clock, according to Zatz. The watch equipment doesn't seem to have a name yet, but it would be a smart addition for August since competitors like Arlo and Ring already offer similar options.
There is no word on a release date or pricing ̵
It has been more than a year since August introduced new hardware, but the company has not been completely silent: it launched new software features and integrations, including an in-home delivery service and further assistance from Google Assistant. Now that it's part of Assa Abloy, August has brought its smart technology to the company's other locks.
