-Used the Arduino Mega.
Maybe not such a positive thing.Looks good though. I hope you have fun with your arduino WinkMowcius
Why is using the Mega a bad thing? I would understand that if this project was more permanent, but please motivate.
It is fine for a temporary project it's just that you could have done it on a normal arduino so a lot of people will try to flame you for that GrinThe mega is great though cos it gives you more program space.I do like the project though. Why did you detect whether the door is open or not?Mowcius
instead of knockings, it would be fun with a recorded noise in mp3 format to unlock. or music, bad taste wouldnt get in... nofx:open, elvis:closed.
I have been working on some code for a similar (in principle) device that uses a pattern of turning the door knob as an input method. It is currently binary based for simplicity (a turned door handle corresponds to a 1 and a not turned knob a 0, this works because it is a time-based program) but I am working on a method that uses the knob as a rotary combination lock.
And the serious use; my phone can be my key. Hard to copy if the code resides embedded in some kind of noise. Access to the file mght be needed. Doable?
