Troubled Lockitron turns the corner with the introduction of its new smart lock, Bolt

From AppAdvice.com:  While the crowdfunding craze has helped to create a number of successful iOS accessory companies, there have also been more than a few spectacular failures. But Lockitron falls somewhere in between.
 
The company arrived on the scene all the way back in 2012 with its unique (at the time) smart and app-enabled deadbolt that cost $179. Flooded by a more-than-expected number of preorders, the company was unable to keep up with demand as the original Lockitron was plagued with hardware and software issues.
 
But the company has just introduced a new lock version named Bolt. There are some major differences compared to the original model.
 
Most importantly, the new version is retailing for just $99, which is significantly less than other competitors like the Kwikset Kevo and August Smart Lock. Purchasing the optional $77 bridge will allow users to control the lock from anywhere.
 
And instead of a fitting on top of your current deadbolt, the Bolt replaces it completely.
