Yale Locks has developed an app that can open and secure doors by simply touching your phone to the device.

As we have seen with the various iterations of NFC technologies they have the ability to streamline several routines for us, including payments and time management. With a simple tap of your phone we can perform transactions, order food or organize our lives. This kind of streamlining makes mundane tasks less time consuming and effortless. It gives us more time to focus on the more important aspects of particular tasks during our daily routines. The most recent application of the technology is with locks. Yale Locks, a 150 year old company known for experimenting with new technologies has recently developed an affordable door locking application for Blackberry phones. This further un-clutters our pockets of keys, relegating all locks to a single device.
