An application of a smartphone is to use instead of a key. If you set sharing settings in the application, it is also possible to use LATCH by more than one person. Temporarily setting up sharing not only with family members and living together but also with friends who visited the house in case of absence will make it possible to get inside the house first.

When the key was invented in ancient times, the key was made to protect the house from suspicious individuals. That's why we needed a key to prevent unknown people from entering from outside.

However, contemporary society has become extremely busy compared to the past.

In a busy society, people get in and out more frequently, and the frequency of using keys is getting higher than it was in the past.

It is becoming more and more convenient society, but "access" using keys is said to be inconvenient.
