Smart Keys


As technology moves forward, more and more things are become electronic. You see commercials now where security systems allow you to unlock and lock your doors with your phone. This is similar to that, but i would want to broaden it. It would be an app that you could download where you could buy locks for your home and what not, like they already have, but i want to focus on vehicles as well. Pretty much all new cars now are push to start with a key fob. With smart keys, you can still have your keys, but you could pair the app with your vehicle. This would allow it to be interchangeable with the key fob, opening the doors and allowing you to start the car. This other options to add to it as well, such as key-less padlocks even.
