11.6. Wrapping Up

In this project we tackled some extreme hardware hacking by inserting new circuitry into an off-the-shelf keyless remote entry door. In my house, this project garnered some funny looks from my family when I was first working on it—they found it to be a bit frivolous. Now that it's installed, though, it has become essential to all who live here.

In fact, we used the lock for about a month before I tried adding X10. While hacking the lock I managed to break it, which meant that we had to go back to using keys. We really felt its absence during the time we waited for its replacement.
