The door opening mechanism on the front door of "De Verlichting" needs a redesign.
+
* Open the door by using a linear actuator, which pulls down on the doorhandle from the inside
 
+
* Control this using the 'doorduino' and a raspi for networking/ssh
It should be somewhat more durable (current mtbf is around 2 months) and the appearance could be improved.

We invite participants to adopt this project.

''Ideas regarding unlock mechanism:''
+
# We've looked into a winch servo, but with the torque needed they are just as expensive as linear actuators
+
# Linear actuators are a good option and could be "retrofitted", but still reasonably expensive.
+
# How about something like this? [http://nl.aliexpress.com/item/ES-130A-130B-Narrow-type-Electric-Strike-Series/505735088.html Electric Strike]. Not as easy to install, however they are cheap, easy to operate and unlock the door instantly. (12V = unlocked, 0V = locked)
