It describes how to build a smartphone-connected door lock using a Raspberry Pi-powered deadbolt actuator.
According to Alex Bate writing on the RaspberryPi.org blog, it can be retro-fitted to an existing lock, “so there’s no need to start pulling out the inner workings of your door”.
A phone app can be used to unlock the door and it will also notify you when the door has been unlocked.
“You’ll need access to a 3D printer for some of the parts and, as a way to support their growing channel, the developer team provide printed parts for sale on eBay,” writes Bate.
It seems the Hacker House team are also giving away two Raspberry Pis. You will need to subscribe to their channel and tell them how you would use one in your own project to be in with a chance of winning.
Is anyone else designing a Raspberry Pi-powered lock or security system? If so why not tell RaspberryPi.org, they would be interested in finding out more.
