SecretKnock Door Lock

There’s home made kit and then there’s HOME MADE KIT.  The ‘Secret Knock Detecting Lock’ is a complete slam dunk.  Built from an adrino board, pvc piping and a set of suction cups, the device attaches to the door and when it detects a preprogrammed knock (based on rhythm – it can be faster or slower) it activates its motor and physically turns the deadbolt.  A set of LED lights indicate when a knock is detected and flashes from red to green when the correct secret key has been entered.  To program the little doodad you simply press a red button and then knock out the key – I suggest doing this on a bathroom door away from eaves dropping ear.  Make this and I’d totally buy it.  Check the video below.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
