Most locks aren't hard to pick, they just require patience. Get a small screwdriver that will fit into the keyhole. You'll use that to apply tension to the lock. A straight paperclip with a slight bend on the end will be used to push each tumbler in.

Start by applying tension with the screwdriver. Too much and the tumblers won't push down. Too little and they wont stay down. With slight movements of the screw driver and patiently pushing each tumbler down, you can get them all to fall into place and the lock will open.


Alternately, take off your shoelace and tie it around your paperclip. Bend the paperclip into a boomerang shape and loop around the bolt. Work the bolt inward with a sawing motion, and as soon as the shoelace reaches the tip of it, it should pop open. It's called the "easier than a credit card" method.

And a lot of padlocks especially combination locks can be shimmed. If not, there are other methods to defeat these locks.
Warded locks are very simple to open as well.

While those are very cool technology I think they go beyond what I'm ready to do. I don't want to get into a smart phone & those expenses. I just want a garage type remote control to unlock the doors. I don't mind paying a one time fee, but monthly fees just to unlock doors doesn't sit well with my cheapness. ;) So far I have only found ones that each door has it's own remote. I think I'm going to end up building a system. One remote, four buttons.

Freddy, Here's an idea, if you want to do 4 doors w/ 1 remote...just purchase 5 units of them and make the 5th one/remote be the common actuator for the other 4.
Number 5 could be set up in multiple configurations to be able to pilot the other 4. :)

That might work.... I'm not sure if you can change the frequencies. When I have the time and ambition I'll look into it. Thanks for the idea.
