  1. Because of course, all card access systems have clearly marked IP addresses and port numbers, as well as the local network WiFi AP name and key printed in a convenient location… umm… o.O

    As a guy with a little experience seeing the "back-end" of these systems, 'tis laughable as a "OMG real hack!", but enjoyable as fiction. Protip: most systems don't have IP addresses, the ones I've seen are really quite proprietary systems with a "central" control board that connects to a phone line, and gets updated, monitored, and controlled by a main PC over a modem connection. Some more modern systems use TCP/IP, but you don't think they'd make that stuff so easy to "tap and hack", do you? Multiple layers of security… encryption on the protocol as well as password-protected configuration. Not just "tap and hack"…

    And I was hoping this would be an Android proximity-card replacement app. I do get tired of waving my hip at the card reader to scan my access card in my wallet…

  2. this reminds me of the tennisball with a hole in to open car door…. if it has a ip, perhaps his friend is remote opening it from the computer that controls it…. if not, how did he get the ip ? and did the owner of the door post his ip and portnumber, and password to the system on the gate ? … and if so.. did he do so because he always forgets it -.-
