Password Door Lock using Elegoo and Tinkercad

In this project, we will be building and coding a password screen and lock system. This is one of the more advanced projects but still easily achievable.

You will need:

  1. 25 wires of various colors to help sort.
  2. 1 potentiometer
  3. 1 LCD 16 x 2
  4. 1 elegoo uno r3 circuit board
  5. 1 Breadboard
  6. 1 4×4 keyboard
  7. 1 micro servo

Keep in mind the colors I use r not mandatory for you, I just use them to keep my projects organized.

Step one: connect these wires to their correct spot.

Keypad

 

 

 

 

 

 

Circuit Board

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step two: connect these wires to their correct place.

Step three: connect these wires and the potentiometer to their correct place.

The complete project should look like this:

 

 

 

 

 

Finally copy and paste this code into your software and run it.
