Mobile phones are changing our lives in multiple ways.  Some of which are obvious, and some of which are happening behind the scenes.

Lockitron is one of those "behind the scenes" companies that may well change your life for the better.  The company makes locks for your home & apartment that can be controlled by your mobile phone.  That means being able to unlock a door remotely, without you even being there.  It's an interesting idea & one I can see becoming mainstream in the not too distant future.  Here are some details from the company website:

Lockitron Overview

Lockitron replaces keys with your phone. With Lockitron, you can instantly grant family, friends and guests access to your home or business from anywhere in the world using your internet enabled smartphone. For $295 and no monthly fees you can order a Lockitron deadbolt kit that can be installed in about 15 minutes. 

Any internet enabled smartphone can use Lockitron. For a small monthly fee, Lockitron owners can enable text-message access which turns any mobile phone into a virtual key. The upcoming Lockitron Android app will feature NFC capabilities allowing users to unlock or lock their door just by swiping it in front of a Lockitron NFC tag.
