I doubt you have. If you have, you’re MAD. I certainly haven’t, but someone who works for lock specialist Schlage has – hence the arrival of the LiNK deadbolt locking system. LiNK, as well as being extremely fashionable thanks to its mix of upper and lower case letters, can send you a text message when your door is opened, perhaps helping you spy on the comings and goings of your housemates. Or, for a fee, you can subscribe to an online service that’ll let you allow access to door-unlocking via the internet.
There’s probably a serious use for this application. Like shop owners, who could let the minimum-wage employees open up at 6.45am from the comfort of their in-bed laptop.
