“My Arduino can beat up your hotel room lock”

Brocious-Onity-Hotel-Lock-Arduino-640X353

Cody’s talk on opening rooms with an Arduino via ExtremeTech.

Well, my talk for Blackhat (My Arduino can beat up your hotel room lock) is over.  Things could’ve gone better in terms of execution — went through it too quickly and ended up using 30 minutes of my 60 minute slot.  But people really enjoyed it and I spent a good hour or so answering questions. Now it’s time to release everything. There’s still work to be done on the paper, but that will happen in time.

I’ll write more on all this in the near future, but now it’s time for sleep and all that.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. I always figured the electronic system was more for show than anything… so: 1) always use the mechanical lock on the door (i.e, the chain), and 2) don’t leave anything that you care about getting swiped or messed with in your hotel room. I won’t go into the pros and cons of carrying a self-defense weapon with you; as laws vary by location and personal aptitude is a major factor.

  2. @Britt, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7INIRLe7x0Y The chain is not very effective either… Will never be safe

  3. That was meant to be We’ll never be safe
