    Well, the answer to the question must be 'all three' since you'll need to replace everything listed if anyone nicks your phone and figures out your address

    If, that is, it can be made to work well. I'm a bit dubious about a security product that doesn't give you the details on how it works.

    Nice prize, but requiring a smartphone makes it a non-starter, free or otherwise. Luck to all those who entered, though

    You can know, there is an LED circle, Red for locked, green for open

    Re: Epic Giveaway Day 10: Win an August Smart Lock

    The question is "what types of interference is this electronic lock affected by, when compared to a standard key based lock?"

    Looks cool to me, but my wife thinks like most posters here, so I'm sure that even if I win it I won't be allowed to install it. Sadly I'm out.

    You'd still need to take your physical key (I hope there is still one for backup) in case your battery died while you were out...
