Open Toilet with SMS in Finland

Open Toilet with SMS in Finland
You can now open Toilet with SMS in Finland. Along Highway 1 in Western Finland, some rest stops have bathrooms that can be opened only via text messaging. Otherwise locked, a number is posted on the door to which you text "OPEN." The door unlocks and you can do your business. The Finnish Road Administration has developed a system which allows travellers to open the doors to roadside toilets only by sending an SMS to the number given by the Road Administration.

"... There are instructions on the doors to toilets and shower rooms, advising prospective users to send a text message "OPEN" to the number given on the door. The call is directed to a modem, which then sounds a buzzer and opens the door.

The opening of the door costs just the normal SMS rate without any additional charges, meaning that the government isn't making money off the service.
