The Motorola Smart Safe lets you monitor and open it remotely

From what I’ve heard about how Lenovo is running Moto these days, this isn’t terribly shocking.

The Motorola Smart Safe lets you script kiddies monitor and open it remotely.

FTFY.

Crikey, what could possibly go wrong?

Monitor a safe
Watch paint dry

Seems like a misnomer, with both “smart” and “safe” in there.

LOL, WTF. Watching the video, I actually sat in shock for a minute before laughing, that’s so bad. Literally worse than a cheap tin lockbox. The only possible use is it warns you when someone steals it, but I imagine it doesn’t even warn you if someone opens it by smacking it.

This is just about in the “I just looked at it and it popped open” category; it’d be insulting to even suggest it to him.

To be fair, opening it remotely takes orders of magnitude more work than what’s required to open it in person, so no one will ever bother to do that if they want to steal something from it. (That’s not to say that people might not open it remotely, but they’d just be doing it to screw with the owner.)

Really gutsy to position this ad between two articles about hacking for fun and profit.

All those times you want people to get in your safe while you are not physically present? You mean never?

Insert @beschizza joke here.

(If you’re playing catch-up at home:)

You have no idea how entertaining a passtime it really is.

Argh. Scooped.

I hope we can get an update on when @doctorow installs one of these in his house to keep stuff safe. Because, you know it does not compromise security.

Sometimes I wonder if the BB Store is a clever parody account with a long game.

Well, that does sound like something Rob would do. :thinking:

If you can pick it up it’s not a safe. Just a box.

Presumably this relies on wifi to report it’s status, so all a thief would have to do is switch off your wifi when they break into your house.
You know, if just hitting it wasn’t enough.

At least we don’t have to wonder about the separation between the editorial, and sales parts, of the business. Clearly they have never communicated in any way, shape, or form.
