Security is a prime concern in our day-today life. Everyone wants to feel secure. An

access control for doors forms a vital part in our security chain. Doors locked using conventional

locks are not as safe as they used to be, anyone can break in by breaking these locks. Password

based door lock system allows only authorized persons to access restricted areas. The system is

fully controlled by Arduino. The password can be entered through a keypad. If the password is

matched with the one stored in Arduino it instructs the motor driver to open the door. The

password can be changed by the user interfacing Arduino with a pc and using a keypad to change

the password.

Now a days we all know that security is most important. Maslow’s hierarchy theory

suggests that safety and security are the primary needs of a human being (Maslow, A. H., 1943).

Every person finds the need to have a secure security system for protecting their money,

important documents, precious metals/stones and one’s life itself.

Security locks range from basic lock and key type to high end security locks with

biometric inputs as its key for those who desire higher level of security. High end security locks

offer higher security compared to low end locks. Installation of such complex locks is sometimes

expensive and requires skilled personnel for installation. Low end locks are easy to install but

often fall prey to tampering and get breached into easily.

Automated door lock system using Arduino is used in places of restricted access.

Arduino is an open source computer hardware and software company, project, and user

community that designs and manufactures single-board microcontrollers and microcontroller kits

for building digital devices and interactive objects that can sense and control objects in the

physical and digital world (David Kushner (2011-10-26). "The Making of Arduino". IEEE

Spectrum). It can be also used to secure lockers and valuable things and confidential information.

Smartphone and motor are connected to Arduino. Arduino continuously monitors the

Smartphone application to connect to the device using the Bluetooth module that is connected to


The system provides access to personnel within the faculty using a mobile application

that would connect directly to the device (Automated Door Lock) that is installed.
Problem Statement:

The main and very basic need of security was fulfilled by using the mechanical or

electrical locks which are very heavy and designed for only one key. Therefore a large number of

locks of required for locking a large industries there are many keys for different locks (i.e. a very

tedious task to arrange these keys). These locks are not so much protective and could be broken

by using some mechanical tools. All these problems could be solved if we use electronic locking

system in place of these electrical &mechanical locks. There are also some more features are

available in these electronic locking system The electronic security system are very light,

flexible, reprogrammable, lower cost, more accurate, highly secure and required less power. In

this way due to the introduction of the electronic security system the security need and fulfilled

to a great extent and we could protect a whole industry or company very easily and rapidly.

Definition of terms


Arduino is a tool for making computers that can sense and control more of the

physical world than your desktop computer. It's an open-source physical computing platform

based on a simple microcontroller board, and a development environment for writing software

for the board.



Door Lock

Servo Motor

Our electronic door lock performed as expected. We were able to implement all of the

functions specified in our proposal. The biggest hurdle we had to overcome with this project was

interfacing the micro controller with the hardware components. We feel that this electronic door

lock is very marketable because it is easy to use, comparatively inexpensive due to low power

consumption, and highly reliable. This door lock is therefore particularly useful in applications

such as hotel room door locks, residential housing, and even office buildings.



*Difficult to implement

*Source code is comparatively complex

Design Specification

In this age of digital technology, every device and operation has become digital based. Now with

digital based door lock systems, it is easier to control the door movement. The new automated

door lock system does not need a key to lock or unlock the door. This digital door entry system is

in fact controlled by keypad that is installed on the side wall of the door. The keyless door is an

electronic circuit based device. The working of this locking system is very simple. It works on

the entry number. The authenticated person has to enter the unique code using keypad. You can

install a keyless entry system in your house as well as in buildings and offices. With this system,

you will never be in tension of leaving the sensitive areas out of your supervision.
