Hi everybody, i am a beginner in arduino board. I was just wondering if it is possible to control a door lock(which opens when we press an electric switch in The house and closes when door is closed again) using arduino? I want to make a webserver on my local network and Whenever i should press a button on that webpage door should unlock. Is it possible? If yes please guide me guys .i woll be very helpful
Yes, that is doable.
Hi thanks for the reply,can you tell me how to do it?i have an arudino board and ethernet sheild
Thanks for giving me link to forum posting tips but as i said i am a newbie ,and didnt know much about this And i am posting after revelant google search only
if you have no experience with arduino or coding at all this is a pretty big project to approach all points at once. I.d suggest to split the project down into smaller steps. for example think about with what kind of part you want to close and open the lock. Is the door opened and closed by hand or also automated.... And also tell us more about what you want to realise. What kind of lock / door.... etc...
I was thinking specifically of tip number 6.
Thanks uyctt , actually i only want to automate the part where we press the
Button from inside to open the door, i want the button to be replaced by micro controller .

That statement makes sense at the human level but it is meangingless to a microcontroller. A button is a simple electro-mechanical thing that makes something happen. It can't just be replaced by a microcontroller. You need all sorts of other stuff.
Since I know nothing about how your door lock works I can't tell you what the other stuff needs to be.
Have a look at this tutorial: http://startingelectronics.com/tutorials/arduino/ethernet-shield-web-server-tutorial/
Part 5 is about having a checkbox on a webpage served out by the Arduino, checkbox controls an LED.
Then in theory it’s easy to replace the LED with a solenoid which would be your door lock: http://www.ecs.umass.edu/ece/m5/tutorials/tip122_transistor_tutorial.html
