I just found out that you can purchase a Bluetooth Smart Lock made by Kwikset for the locks in your home. This device makes it so you don't ever have to worry about locking your keys in the house because you simply use your Smartphone to unlock or lock the doors. The one major concern I have with this is that it would be easy for someone to hack into and obtain access to my home when I'm not there. How safe do you think these locks are?

I'm not too familiar with these locks, but I would assume that a tech savvy individual up to no good could find a way to hack into your Smartphone's system, being that this is new technology and open to errors in utilization with programming. Until all the bugs are worked out and more sophisticated safeguards are put into place, I would stick with the old fashioned key and security alarm system.
