It depends, good for extended periods of time away from home, or nightly if you are concerned about the door opening during the night, just switch back on in morning! We don't switch off to go shopping because you do want it to open when you get back home. As they say, each to his own!

Of all the things I've lost in my life the thing I miss the most is my mind!

I sent my engineer geek son the link that Lou posted and here's his reply--

"Yep, any computer can be hacked. I used to do it all the time at best buy. Someone would forget to give us their password when they brought their computer in for service and it was just easier for me to hack it than call and ask for the password.
The thieves just need a way in. Now that all the new cars come with wireless systems, they've got their door. And the technology ignorant government makes it law that EVERY car have these systems. They force things such as tire pressure monitoring on every new car built since 2007, and voila. That's a wireless system that can be used to gain access to every other electric system in the car. You could even hack a car on the highway and crank on the e-brake now that a lot of them are electronic. That gives you a warm feeling huh. Problem is, by the time the authorities catch on, their will already be millions of cars on the road with easily hackable systems.
It's funny that a simple manual key lock is your best defense."
