Introduction: IOT BOLT COLOR SECURE LOCK
A cheap, durable, advanced lock that detects a unique RGB value as it's key!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Simple and Cheap Way to Increase Your Security
High security colour card scanner is a digital device which takes your colour card data and compares it with the stored colured pattern.If the pattern matches with the stored one, then the door opens or else after 3 wrong attempts we get a security alert!
Here we are using RGB colours, so we get a combination of 256*256*256 combinations, which is highly secured.
Also this technology is cheap and is very easy to make.
Step 2: Equipments Used Are:
7.Unique Colour bar card
Step 3: What Is a BOLT?
Bolt is an Internet of Things platform (Hardware+Software) that enables you to build IoT products and projects.
Using BOLT, users can control and monitor devices from any part of the world. It provides the ability to embed Wi-Fi capabilities within other systems, or to function as a standalone application.
The manufacturers can embed the Bolt hardware in their product, develop a custom UI and then their users can control their products using the NetPlug app. Bolt works on pay as you go basis, which means the manufacturers have no capital investments to get their products IoT enabled. This lets even small scale players to build IoT enabled products and services.

Step 4: How Does a Colour Sensor Works?
The light sensor works by shining a white light at an object and then
recording the reflected colour. It can also record the intensity of the reflection (brightness). Through red, green and blue colour filters the photodiode converts the amount of light to current. The converter then converts the current to voltage which our arduino can read.
Step 5: Block Diagram
This gives you a general idea of the given components and the basic structure of the circuit
Step 6: The Arduino Code :
This code gives us the interface to interact with the colour sensor and gives us a binary value which can be passed over to the bolt.
Step 7: What Is Exactly Happening ?
Basically the Colour sensor is connected to the arduino. The colour sensor gives the voltage data to the arduino and it converts it to binary data. This data is then given to the BOLT and is transferred to the internet via IOT.
This is linked to a google spreadsheet. So whenever a person with his unique colour card swipes to the reader, we get a log at the spreadsheet. Also if your three trails are incorrect it gives you a alert. This is just a prototype of new upcoming technologies.
Step 8: You Get All the Logs
SO after every successful attempt your google sheet automatically gets updated. Also after three unsuccessful attempts, you get notified via mail/messages.
hence this technology makes your security excellent and cheap :)
