Meanwhile, most of the non-electronic locks manufactured in the world can be "hacked" by a pair of paper clips.
Onity's locks should be judged not only by their physical counterparts, but also by what can reasonably be achieved electronically. This problem was entirely avoidable, at little or no extra original expense (and much less overall) if Onity had just employed one or two competent, security-aware developer/designers. I don't expect perfection, and is reasonable competence too much to ask?
I'm calling bullshit here. Looks to me like their locks were fit for purpose, where its purpose is to keep honest people honest.
The larger issue that concerns me here is that this cavalier attitude to electronic security seems to be unjustifiably common, and it seems that someone needs to get slapped around a bit before businesses see this as something they need to pay attention to. If Onity is that someone, we are making progress.
