Phantom Keyless Home Entry Uses Your Phone To Unlock Your Door Beth Snyder July 18, 2011 Extras This will be a familiar scenario: Your hands are full, it’s raining, and you can’t get to your keys because your hands are full. There you stand on your porch in the pouring rain, which is soaking not only you but whatever you’re carrying, cursing and trying to get at your keys in your pocket or purse. And vowing that the next time you will remember to get your keys out before you load up your hands with bags or boxes or whatever. There is now a solution. The best part about this is you can use this with almost any door, and it takes only marginal handyman skills to install. It comes with an electronic door strike and control units, as well as the necessary wire for discreet installation. It uses Bluetooth technology to pair with any phone you would like to have access to your home, but it also still allows for a key to be used. In fact, in the event of a power outage the door will remain locked unless it is opened with a key, so you should still carry one. The Phantom Keyless Home Entry will recognize your paired phone as you approach the door and unlock automatically, and you won’t even have to turn the knob! Just push open the door and go on about your life. Of course, it’s only as secure as your existing hardware, but if that’s been good enough for you to this point it should still be so. If you ever lose your phone, all you need to do is reset the device to revoke that phone’s access, so there are no worries about someone stealing your phone and being able to break into your house. This convenience doesn’t come cheap at $249.99 US per unit, but if you’re someone who, like me, comes home at odd hours or while carrying a bunch of stuff, it could very well be worth it to you.
