Subscription based service.... Three words that mean I wont ever own a product.

At some point this company is going to decide to stop supporting these locks, they will shut doen the servers and your back to having a dumb lock a $600 dumb lock (With the added bonus that its probably also hackable) - Ill stick to physical keys thanks.
