You do need to get a digital lock fitted in your car to enable it to work but the bonus is you don’t need to get extra keys cut. You can add extra authorised users to the app, and even dictate when and where it can be used. You can just as easily deactivate it online too, if you happen to really lose your phone.
If you are the forgetful type when it comes to locking your car, this will save going back to check. Once you’ve moved more then two metres away from the car it will automatically lock, and you’ll get a notification on your phone.
It’s still a few years before it will be ready for retail development but it’s certainly going to be a big change when it happens.
Instead of going where’s my car keys it will be where’s my phone? But who doesn’t already do that anyway?
Would you like to try this technology or do you prefer to hold on to your keys?
