Open front door using Bluetooth

Well, this is the start of a description of a project I recently finished! I can open my front door, without even touching the door, using my phone! Here is a preview of what I used for this and what's to come on this blog:

- Java MIDlet on my phone,
- Java application on a server near the front door that listens for incoming requests,
- Integrated Circuit (IC) which opens up the front door,
- Interface to that IC, using the serial port of the server.

Check out the video below to see it working in action!

  1. does it do this automatically or do you have to press a button?

  2. It opens with the press of a button. The reason for this is that if I'd let the doors open automatically, it'd also open when I go to get my mail and I get cold xD

  3. I'm interesting on more technical information to develop the project and integrate with one we already have. I'm willing to pay for.
