[quote=“SparkyXI, post:39, topic:46834, full:true”]I can’t imagine how you could have any heightened sense of security when you know the risk of it being hacked (at all). Why break a window when one can just hack the lock - drive by, push a button, and you’re in! No bump keys, no hand tools, just push the button.
I’m not against smart locks, I’m just against connecting them and controlling them remotely.
The point is, it’s the other way round in your thinking, it’s actually easier for more people to pick/bump than it is for them to ‘hack’. That’s why the article is mostly click bait/scare journalism.
Nothing makes you more frighteningly aware of just how easy it is to get in your house/car than when you lose your keys… and I do mean shockingly easy, as in usually only a few seconds kind of easy. Just go through the the locksmith/picking videos on YouTube and you’ll realise why someone who wants to rob your house will chose those methods over a ‘hack’ any day of the week.
There is only so much you can do and security should always be in layers.
