“From controlling the room lights to controlling the door lock with your keypad, home automation has taken convenience to a whole new level.
As thefts are increasing day by day security is becoming a major concern nowadays. I wanted to design something to be able to secure any type of items that you would want to store. Many of us like to control each and every appliances of our home using touchpad, keypad or through Bluetooth. From controlling the room lights to controlling the door lock with your keypad, home automation has taken convenience to a whole new level. Instead of using mechanical switches, you can now continently control all the devices in your home from your fingertips.
This project demonstrates how to setup a simple DIY home automation using an Arduino. In this project, I make a door lock system with keypad using Arduino Uno. It will open the door only when the right password is entered and if the password is wrong then it will show a message INCORRECT! TRY AGAIN. Then you can control different color of LED. By pressing right password, the fan would be automatically on. It was an interesting project for me to learn. I simplified my code and it effectively runs. I got so many new ideas while making this project and it widens up my knowledge.”
