Electronics enthusiasts, makers and hobbyists that are looking for a new project to keep them busy over the holiday season may be interested in this awesome four factor lockbox which has been created using a little Arduino hardware and programming.
The four factor lockbox is sure to help keep your personal documents, data or anything else you need to secure safe from prying eyes. Watch the video below to learn more about the device which is equipped with a fingerprint scanner, numeral input pad, potentiometers and even requires you tap out the correct “knock” to be able to access the box.
Created as part of a electrical and computer engineering class at Cornell, the project shows a great way of securing your documents or drives.
Our final project for ECE 4760: Digital Systems Design Using Microcontrollers is an ultra-secure programmable lockbox. The box can be unlocked using a keypad, three tunable knobs, a ‘knocking’ pattern (through a piezo electric sensor), and a fingerprint sensor. The user must provide the proper inputs to each of the various systems using the directions displayed on a TFT LCD screen. Once the box is unlocked, the user may update the passwords, combinations, and fingerprints that must be provided to unlock the box again.
