Lockitron brings you keyless entry using your phone.

Lockitron lets you instantly grant family, friends and guests access to your home or business from anywhere in the world using your internet enabled smartphone. It works with any smartphone and can detect the iPhone 4S or 5 on approach thanks to integrated Bluetooth Low Energy.

Lockitron installs in seconds over your current deadbolt without the need for a locksmith - renters can use Lockitron too since you don’t need to change your keys.
