Can you be a little more specific about what you are wanting to accomplish with this system? – Steve Dec 26 '11 at 17:22

A quick glance at the lockitron web site answers both questions.

The hardware setup involves replacing existing locks with their WiFi connected locks; and they support NFC but not plain RFID.

It is vulnerable! Just a thought... Soon, anybody with a smart-phone, time & intent can, and might try to exploit security flaws within the residential, and enterprise security standards of today's technology...

In real thought, its better to have hardware locks...

@least then they would need a bag of tools...

I've always found "two-factor" authentication to be the best.

So, one hardware(key), one RFID...
