The idea that it would trick burglars is laughable but it would still be very useful

Unfortunately for the lad, this isn't really a new idea, my intercom can ring my mobile, then I just press * on the phone and it unlocks the door.

Not sure I'd like to see Bald Eagle's phone bill if it includes an international mobile call every time the kids come round playing knock-a-door-run...

I think the problem is how you convince the caller that you ARE at home, but are not going to open the door to them.

Nevertheless, a good idea.
