The objective of this project is to solve the problem of thievery in our college hostels. Hence, after a significant amount of brainstorming we isolated the source of the problem.
The main cause of robbery in our hostel rooms was simply because the owners of the would carelessly leave their rooms unlocked and unattended. If the thief was rendered unable to enter the room, all chances of theft would then be nullified.
Once we realized this much, finding a solution was child's play. It was simple... The main concept of our project would be to make a self locking door.
On top of this, we further added a few features. The user can unlock the door remotely as well as using Hand Gestures.Working
The micro-controller connects to the internet and so does the user's phone. Through this common internet connection, the user can unlock his/her room door on the press of a button.
The user merely has to show the correct hand sign which is recognized by the system using OpenCV. If the expected hand sign is show by the user then the door is unlocked.
