Just because it is digital, don't think it is secure. Read the last paragraphs in particular.

I'd have the opposite view, if it's digital, assume it's insecure.

Are there any upmarket hotels left that don't have digital locks?

same here

 

 

 

just like safes most lock smiths say that digital are easy to open than the old school ones

 

most digital locks have a battery of some kind so just pulling out the battery and putting it back in can reset the code

 

have a look on youtube for the videos of them doing it

Another reason to make sure you take the small valuables with you each time you leave your room. Maybe turn physical lock on the inside (if it has one!).
