The Smart-Lock will then let you lock and unlock your door via your Bluetooth 4.0-equipped smartphone, with a traditional key, or, with the optional Smart-Reader, via wristband, a wallet card, and key fob accessories, all equipped with RFID chips.

The wristbands also make it easy for you to distribute access to different people, including non-smartphone owners.

You can buy a snap-on cover for the smart-lock housing in one of a few color options, and there's even one you can paint yourself, but the color change won't mitigate the size, and the covers are only available for the lock, not Okidokeys' other components.

The Smart-lock base kit costs $179.
