Hotel Room Break-ins Blamed On Hacked Locks
Posted 28 November 2012 - 08:41 AM
Odd they should rely on any one technology since all technology can be breached - the low cost fix would be to add old fashioned keyed bump-proof deadbolt locks. This way someone would have to be both a master lock pick AND a master hacker to breach a room. Someone with those skills probably has better things to do than hack into my hotel room to steal my camera and $200.

Over the last year, and close to twenty different hotel rooms, ALL had the hook lock affair that won't allow the door open more than two inches, besides the dead bolt and regular electronic door lock. I have worked throughout many industries and the key to security is an illusion presented but is really two faced. You think it's secure but only when you're there, not when you're gone. The door mechanisms have a mechanical failsafe that allows the door to be opened with a special ket inserted in a special slot or hole. Just like the interlock on motor control panels to prevent opening the door while power is on, all mfgrs have a secret, hidden method to defeat that interlock.
