    This sounds good and bad at the same time.

    This should be interesting. I wonder if it is using a bar code scanner or some other technology. I know Nokia was experminting with short range RFID technology (less than 1ft range) but haven't heard of anyone else doing it recently. I would feel more comfortable if it was using BT technology, otherwise I think I would have to opt out of the convienience....

    Zo, I think it's done through the internet - They send you a room number and the link. Using the link and software they have provided for your phone, it connects through the internet to the computer that is controlling the door. Sounds awesome, but I would be concerned about security issues - someone could possibly "hack" into your hotel room! -Mark
