  • You mean the ones with all of the security issues?

    For example, the APK's are extremely simple to decompile. Bytecode is easily available and can decompile the APK's easily to look for hard coded passwords. They're also susceptible to replay attacks, fuzzing, and device spoofing.

    And worst of all, a lot of them were found to transmit passwords in plain text. Quite frankly, you'd do just as well to hang a key out by the mailbox and hope that only the honest people use it.

  • I am confined to a wheel chair so being able to unlock the front door with a cell phone or wifi adapter would be a handy feature.
