Found a better …


Found a better security company with EBITDA! Making next gen stuff is cool and good idea!
HUMOR:  I can fire the former China Segway Olympics Security from protecting my horse trailer! Poor guys, the always fall off their Segway when they fire. It so funny! OK! The Good: I did find a great company; The Bad: They are not based in the US; The Ugly: Yes the photo is real and Segway and guns is a bad next gen idea!
BOTTOM LINE:  Smart Locks and upgrading old stuff with cool stuff is the future.  A smarter lock is a smart idea!
