Wireless-Enabled Deadbolt Lock

Kevo | Smart Phone Mobile App Lock - Keyless EntryKevo DeadboltYour Smartphone is now your key with the Kwikset Kevo Wireless-Enabled Deadbolt Lock! With this device, you can now keep your phone in your pocket or purse. For $219.95 per lock, no more fumbling for your keys… just touch the lock to open for the ultimate in convenience. People who own homes and typically enter their through the garage may not find this useful. But, if you’re a runner and would rather not drag your keys with you, it could be helpful! I also can’t see how landlords would allow renters to install this sort of device so I’m really questioning the market at this point. You may think this would be perfect for kids, but they lose cell phones (and even loan them to friends) all the time. Then a bigger security question comes into play. But I suppose that’s true with almost everything these days (see Apple Pay).

This technology has not yet become mainstream, as indicated by the price, but if you are an early adopter and can find a valid use, go for it!  (I’d wait until Black Friday, though, to see if there are any deals).
