However, if you don't have the optional wireless keypad ($79) each user will need to download the app and enter their code there.

To control your lock using Wi-Fi (range is unlimited as long as you have internet access), you will need to purchase additional hardware (August Connect which costs $79, or an Apple TV which costs $99). These act as an in-between device, using a bluetooth signal to communicate with the lock and using Wi-Fi to connect with your phone. See More
