A new smart-lock called "Kevo " saves you from having to dig for keys by turning your smart phone into the key. It uses Bluetooth to sense when you're near, and touching the lock unlocks the door. It can tell if you left your phone inside, so you won't lock yourself out. You can also get a key fob that will work without a smart phone (for kids).
The smart-lock is compatible with iPhones and iPads. It costs about $220. A development for Android and Blackberry is on the way.
