    California is the premier testbed for anything electronic so this should come as no surprise to anyone. If it's electronic then someone is going to enjoy the effort to crack-the-code sooner or later. It's a challenge irresistible to Techno fanatics but the rewards will be short-lived once they cross the line of actually going farther with it physically.

    Simple resolution or failsafe prevention method would be to revert to a secondary mechanical locking scheme in addition. The laws of physics cannot be denied.
