Lockitron Wirelessly Unlocks Your Doors With iPhone!

Did you ever want to remotely unlock your doors or call your keys? With iPhone and Lockitron, that’s a realty!

Lockitron enables you to use your phone (iPhone) to unlock home, business or rental doors from anywhere in the world and even share virtual keys with family, friends and guests! This is done via an app, text message, or NFC.

The virtual keys are rather helpful, especially if you have to let in a friend or family member for whatever reason. Now it’s done remotely!

The technology is quite remarkable in that Lockitron sends a signal from your phone through the company’s servers to a small device that plugs into a local internet router. This then talks to an enabled door signaling it to lock or unlock.

The setup is compatible with most popular lock styles and users may order a Lockitron Self-Install Kit for their through-hole deadbolt, door knob or door handle. I can honestly see this on every door in my house.

Lockitron locks start at $295, mobile device not included.
