Would You Want Your iPhone to Literally Be the Key to Your Home?

Beyond the fact that robots are taking over our homes (and we think it’s awesome) this latest product took me by surprise. I’ll admit I lose my keys as much as the next person, but do I need my iPhone to literally be the key to my home?

Kwikset has a line of dead bolt locks that are Bluetooth enabled and allows your iPhone to unlock your front door. You can even send eKeys to friends and family who you want to have a digital spare. The locks go for a little over $200 on Amazon.com and I can say they’ve sparked my curiosity.

What do you think? Would you want your iPhone to be the key to your home? Let us know in the comments.
