Locking doors never looked so good

Samsung's security remote is a beauty.


Samsung may not have an iPhone, but it's determined to maintain the best-looking design in one undisputed category: home door-lock remotes. The "EZon SHS-1110" is a handheld device that controls Seoul Commtech's EZon Home Network System, according to Newlaunches, but it looks more like one of Samsung's sleek handsets or other gadgets.

After all, how many domestic security systems have a remote control with a touch screen housed in a case of alluminum alloy and tempered glass? (For that matter, how many have remotes at all?) Certainly none in the United States, anyway, at least from Samsung--the EZon is available at present only in South Korea. But fret not: With all the applications being crammed into the iPhone, we wouldn't be surprised to see it unlock doors too.
