My family and I are in the process of buying a new home. One of the first things I started lobbying the wife for (don’t laugh, any married guy will tell you that is an integral part of a relationship) was some serious home automation goodness. I want everything to be automated in the home and talk in the voice of HAL.
Schlage has announced a new deadbolt that will be perfect for my new house and is about as geeky as a deadbolt gets. First, you don’t need a key to unlock it. The lock opens via a 4-digit code that is entered on a 10-digit keypad. The lock can be set up to notify the homeowner via a text when a specific code is entered.
