Walks out of the room, forgets cellphone "Crap"

seriously, how cheap are swipe cards or even RFID cards these days? Does a hotel really wanna risk the software and management of using a wifi or bluetooth broadcast to unlock a door? And what about "key" replication or people doing a form of brute force hack onto a door lock? Let alone the advent of wireless sniffer technology in common bluetooth and wifi devices.

Smartphones are better suited for making a reservation.
