NEW PRODUCT – Lockitron Motorized Door Lock Body


Build your own smart lock with the Lockitron motorized door lock enclosure! Normally, a Lockitron has a built-in WiFi system for locking & unlocking via their App. Since they have redesigned their enclosure, we now have the ‘guts’ of the Lockitron available for hacking. There’s just enough space inside for some tasty Adafruit electronics

You get the housing for the original Lockitron, which contains a geared down DC motor, the mechanical rotation mechanism + detection switches and a 4xAA battery holder. You don’t get a control board, motor driver, or app. So this is best for makers, hackers, and other’s who want to adapt and create their own version of the Lockitron.

For example: wouldn’t it be cool if, instead of having to give your dog-sitter a key to your place, you could just text your home to let her in? We can build it ourselves using the new Lockitron body, Metro Mini (tiny Arduino-compatible) and a FONA 800 cellular module and other components. Check out our tutorial for how we built just such a project – those extra parts aren’t included but the tutorial does show you how to use it.

Comes with just the housing as described above, no electronic components included! You’ll probably want a bi-directional DC motor driver board that can control a 6V motor, and a microcontroller or other ‘brains’ for making the magic happen.

Even though it isn’t supported by Lockitron, the original Lockitron website will be helpful, e.g. to figure out if you can use this with your lock!

We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
