Smart Phone, Smart TV…. Smart Lock?

Ourteam leader, Abby Nelson sent me an article that originated in USATODAY. The article spotlights companies workingtoward helping us to not just reduce our key chain but to eliminate itcompletely. The plan is to be able to open your home, office, car, garage, etc.via your smart phone.

So, what happens when you lose your smartphone? We all know that a lost or stolen smart phone can be reset and wipedclean. Thieves have been selling these phones on the internet for years.So, what happens when you lose your smartphone? We all know that a lost or stolen smart phone can be reset and wipedclean.

There has been a lot of talk about cloning, aswell. Can someone get close enough to me and my smart phone to clone it? Ifthis is possible and I had all my virtual keys on it, it could be a nightmare.Have you seen the commercial from one of the alarm system companies where theguy is on vacation and locks his house, turns off the appliances and the faucetvia his cell phone? What if his phone were cloned?

What about hackers? A computer whiz with adevious mind can hack any device you put in front of him. Even a not sointelligent criminal can search the internet and find out how to hack yourphone, email, laptop, etc. If they can read, the instructions are out there todo all sorts of things. 


We live a world of technology. Everydaysomeone invents a new app. I love my smart phone and my smart TV, but wheredoes it end? Do we really need to digitalize everything? For me, a good oledeadbolt will always have a place on my door. My dad always says that locksonly keep honest people honest anyway.
