Kwikset_kevoJoy’s mother once left a note on the door, telling a workman she would be back in half an hour and to come on in. That was enough time for the house to be robbed.

An alternative is the “Kwikset Kevo” deadbolt. Type in a code on your iPhone to open the door, and change the code as often as you wish. Hopefully, the people you give the code to have an iPhone, but if they don’t, the lock also comes with a key fob; press it to open the door. You can get as many extra fobs as you want for a small charge. If you use the app instead of the fob, however, stand close to the door. The lock is $199 on Amazon.
