August on Tuesday introduced a new doorbell designed to go up against the likes of Nest and Ring. Known as August View, the doorbell now features a more elegant design, so it fits in with the decor of more modern households.
In addition to a beautiful redesign, the biggest selling point of the August View is the fact that it's wireless, which means it's ready to go right out of the box, no complex installation necessary.
"No wires to worry about means there's no need to hire an electrician," August said in an announcement.
The August View features a rechargeable battery that is rated to last up to six months on a single charge, depending on your usage. In that time, users will get 1440p resolution video, two-way audio, infrared floodlight, and access to videos for up to 15 or 30 days with August's premium subscription plans.
Some of the View's other features include "instant motion alerts," on-demand live video, and support for Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. The August View also pairs with all August and Connected by August smart locks, so you can let people into your home after first seeing who's there.
To top it off, August is offering the View in a variety of different colors—there are four metal faceplates and four colored faceplates, including black, red, blue, and white.
The August View is slated to go on sale on March 28 for $230.
