This heavy duty pad­lock throws away the key and in­stead uses a smart­phone con­nec­tion. Cre­ated by Bris­bane firm Dog & Bone, the LockSmart con­nects wire­lessly to Google or Ap­ple-based smart­phones via an app, and lets users un­lock it with the tap of an icon. New users can be ap­proved in the app, its use mon­i­tored, and you can re­quire a PIN or fin­ger­print for added se­cu­rity. The lock turns off af­ter in­ac­tiv­ity, en­sur­ing its recharge­able bat­tery lasts up to two years.
