Botched Firmware Update Bricks Smart Locks
TidBITS article about RemoreLocks (aka; RemoteBricks)
Send the locks back for repair = 5 to 7 days.
Replacement locks = 14 to 18 days.

Wonder how long the repair/replacement would be on a refrigerator! Hopefully it would still keep things cool/frozen while "inop"!.  [banghead] [rolleyes2] :o

Normally systems have a fallback mode to a basic ROM.  I have dealt with Windoze enough over the years though and I am not ready for 'smart' devices in my house. As you mentioned, I don't need the 'blue screen of death' on my fridge.
