RFID deadbolt system also features remote browser control

Given all the crazy ways we've seen to get a door open, a simple RFID getup is pretty ho-hum, but this version goes above and beyond by adding in browser control, including a custom mobile browser control page. Alan Parekh created the system, which interfaces a standard keypad deadbolt to a Vista PC running the Phidget RFID software and a web server. Waving an RFID badge in front of the door will trigger the lock, as will a web app running on the machine. Pretty slick, but we'd be a little wary of having this setup ourselves -- entrusting the security of our sexy bachelor pad to IIS gives us the shivers.
