Milling and assembling the dead bolt.

A project log for Network Enabled Servo Dead Bolt

Using an Arduino Yun to monitor WiFi for my cellphone and unlock my dead bolt with a servo.

Here's the disassembled inner lock face.

I removed the facade of the dead bolt and milled a relief to accept the servo neatly.

I had to ream the screw holes a little deeper to clear the bottom of the servo. I drilled and tapped the bolt holes.

I'm using a tiny piece of acrylic I slotted and screwed to a servo arm to twist the linkage.

The lock is now ready to install back into the door. I'm not sure if I'll make a motor cover or leave the servo bare.
