A great Raspberry Pi project has been published to the Hackster.io website this week by maker and developer Paul Freeman-Powell, providing instructions on how to create your very own Raspberry Pi smart home door lock. The Raspberry Pi door lock is equipped with three factor authentication including NFC fob, touchscreen PIN entry and one-time passcode sent via SMS. Check out the video below to learn more about its design and construction.
The project uses the awesome Raspberry Pi 3 mini PC with integrated Wi-Fi connectivity. “You already may be familiar with two-factor authentication for logging into secure systems like your online banking or your Facebook or email accounts. This door entry system goes one step further and uses THREE factor authentication. To unlock the door, you require; An RFID keyfob, A 6-digit PIN and a random one-time access code which is generated and sent as a text to your phone.”
Full instructions, code and component lists are provided together with full instructions and a very helpful step-by-step video aiding you to build your very own Raspberry Pi smart lock, which can be used to safely secure your belongings and fitted to any inside door.
