We still need the coded doors. The only legitimate circumstance when I really have to type the access code, is when we have both locked ourselves out when parked at the gate.
And I will not elaborate. You will understand what I mean, or you are not entitled to know.

A 32 Character pw that you cannot write down-and has no recognisable sequences, come off it. Extensive research on issues like code words phone numbers shows that most people struggle to remember more than 8 characters or numbers unless they have double characters, like 8 8 7 7 or are set up, in the case of numbers in pairs so 45 56 78 98 is easier to remember than 4 5 5 6 7 8 9 8.

If your PW cannot have a series or recognisable words no one is going to remember 32 characters - just try it

Of course. The idea is that the pw is copied from a secure app on a mobile device. But in fact even 8 - 10 chars would be enough.
