Say hello to Lockitron

Kinda cool.
I think I'll buy 1 one 2, and then install it at my house or office.
And of course, hopefully my phone is not out of battery, or power failure is not happened when I'm going through the doors.

Hehe..

.. and it will likely be easier to pick than a normal keyed lock.

I don't think that electronic locks are there yet. Too many unknowns and too little time to mature. Plus the problem of the failure mode, due to things like loss of power, faulty circuitry/connection, DoS attacks, etc.; will it fail open or closed?

As a rule, the door locks are powered by batteries. They need very little power, so it is good solution.
But I am not sure this lock will be safe enough. The security is a big issue for such a devices. If it uses Internet for communication, it is probably vulnerable.

If i'm not mistaken, is stated in the video that this device uses the same protocol used by banks, so it should be relatively secure.

Anyway, I think I'll put this on my office door, not for security reason, but for coolness factors:
- I don't need to touch the door. It will automatically unlocked every time I go through it.
- Every time people try to open my door, I will be notified.
- If people want to get into my office room, and I'm somewhere else, I can unlock them remotely.

Hehe Razz

Don't be fooled by fancy protocol names. It is all about how it is used, not what is used. I would wait to see some proper testing of the system(s) before going crazy and installing them anywhere.

LOL. Actually, every native Russian speaker will know right after the first sentence of the video how trustworthy the thing is. Am I right, JohnFound?

Laughing I got it now. It is really funny. Lockitron sounds as "lochotron" (лохотрон) - hard for translation Russian word, something like "fraud" but with some shade of meaning. Smile

Sure. Some proper testings are required.
Until then, I consider this thing as a toy.

BTW, it's Arduino based, so I think it's not that hard to build such thing yourself.
