Are you the kind of person who is prone to get locked out of his/her own home because you left your keys in, and is feeling embarrassed on that count?

Once installed, all you need to do is install the Lockitron app on your Android phone and you can control entry to your door from anywhere.

And even if you do lose your phone, log into your Lockitron account on web and change/remove the phones authorized to open that precious door. Moreover,, you can also set permission for other members of the family (making their a legitimate users) and for convenience’s sake, can limit the access based on time, for example, your small kid won’t, or shouldn’t, be needing the access to open the door after 7 p.m. or so.
