When I moved into my new apartment last summer, my landlord gave me 3 keys; one for the front door, one for my unit, and one for my mailbox. So say my unit is one of 32 - if all 32 units have just one person living there, that’s 96 keys. Of course, most of us have family or roommates who also need keys, so this number is quickly climbing to a few hundred. Now manufacturing, maintaining, and potentially replacing that many keys sounds like a lot of money and a lot of hassle. But it’s unavoidable, isn’t it? Not quite - in fact, you could narrow that down to one key per person with the right set of locks.
