About The Project

Personal property is valuable

Maintaining access to personal property can cause frustration because users have inadequate tools for securing their belongings and protecting themselves reliably and affordably. As a result, our team is designing a home entry system that helps users achieve their goal of effortless security.

Our entry system consists of a keypad receiver and a key fob or mobile phone transmitters that can be use to unlock the deadbolt on a door hands free.
