Electronic Sliding Door Lock

I couldn't find an electronic door latch for my workshop door, so I made one. I just used a secure car central locking kit with 2 remotes and a slave solenoid. I Made the contacts from biro springs and empty .22 cartridge cases. Shouldn't have trouble making it work off 12V battery backup either, but for the moment SWMBO just wants it mains-powered.


  1. Neat; always wanted a door lock that listened for my cell phone via bluetooth or something, and just unlocked whenever I was near.


  2. I hope this innovation will also come up with bi folding door. I mean look at this it has everything a secured door needs.

  3. That is awesome!
    I cant wait to make something like it.
