It would also allow any entrant to disable the electronic lock for everyone else by giving it a reset. Not so good either.

That said, it's not the kind of lock I'd ever want on my premises - I'm not even sure you can get insurance if your locks are basically controlled by an untrusted 3rd party (the lock supplier who holds the central account). I can see why some may like it but my needs lie a bit higher, to the point where I had to choose between Assa Abloy disc based locks or EVVA Triple K - at which point I found a Youtube video about someone picking the EVVA one. Grr.
