And to do the re-keying like you're suggesting only really works if all of the locks are from the same manufacturer and similar model locks. Nobody I know has all keys for all locks the same make and model.
At $20 a rekeying, and $60 a new lock vs. $120 for just one if these UniKey locks does it matter? The cost advantage is definitely not in UniKey's favor. But again, I get it, you're paying for the convenience.
Lastly, what you see as a convince I also see as a huge potential security risk.
Seems like every time a convenience item is introduced, not too long after the security risk is exposed. Just like RFID scanners picking up credit card info on new credit cards that can transmit your credit card info for an easy pay. And its already been shown that keyless entry on cars can be defeated without the owner ever knowing. This is likely no different. With convenience comes risk.
