Say goodbye to the days of locking yourself out of your home.  The Kwikset Kevo is a new lock that allows you to use an iPhone to unlock your door – and given how attached we’ve all become to our smart phones the chances of leaving your house without your phone are very unlikely.  Once you configure the lock with the free app simply walk up to the lock, touch it with your finger and the lock will open – you don’t even have to take your phone out of your pocket.  This is possible thanks to the Kevo communicating with your phone using the Bluetooth Low Energy profile.  A Kevo Fob is also included with the lock for those who don’t have a compatible phone.  The Kwikset Kevo supports the iPhone 4S and iPhone 5, as well as the iPad 3, 4, mini, and the latest iPod touch.  $250.  Coming this summer.
