Same as Unlocking Spell?

In many of the video games, Alohomora is shown to be capable of unlocking and opening doors and chests from a distance. As far as I'm aware, canon does not contradict this. Since this appears to be the exact same effect of this spell, is it too speculative to say these two are the same? -- 1337star (Drop me a line!) 02:10, July 3, 2012 (UTC)

That's what I thought as well; however (and please correct me if I'm wrong) I thought that there were other spells of the same effect. 03:06, August 9, 2012 (UTC)
