I would expect that a US$15 masterlock would withstand a crowbar fairly well.
We are talking about a lock that costs more than $70.
BIG PROBLEM, what is to stop someone removing he battery and more importantly the screw top? The only way I see this working is if I remove the battery and screw top myself each time I lock something. That is a real pain in the ass! At schools every one will get vandalized guaranteed, So clever these designers they miss the obvious!
In this day and age you do not seen too many ideas which really improve upon an ideal that has been around long time. A lock just works, yes they are not perfect and a determine thief can easily get through a lock. If you realize a lock is just a deterrent to the normal honest person then this ideal is a great one. It is one of those obvious idea and surprise it was not thought of sooner when the blue tooth house lock was introduced.
Back to my point about it being a deterrent to the honest person, my only question is how rugged is the design, is it as tough as a good old master lock. That is the standard they must meet along with the new technologies they added. You should not have to give up one thing to get the other.
For those who talked about cell being banned at school, obviously your schools have not figured it out. Luckily the school around me did and allow the kids to have them, they just can not use them in class, it is left to the teach how they want to handle if the kid is caught using it during class. When the school change the rules, they stopped having problem which they claimed banning the phones would stop.
Yep, exactly my point, they he let a design studio come up with the design it may look nice, but can it take a bullet like a Master Lock
But I will tell you there is a way to shot a master lock and make it open you just need to know exactly where to shot it.
