We could not agree more! This for personal interest and possibly adding more warning of a strike in addition to the preventive steps I take when traveling outdoors.
You bring up an excellent suggestion! I might try switching the display out for a Seven-Segment-Display or a a Serial -LCD for ease of reading outside.

That is a great idea, you have lucky friends! There are two solutions that come to mind but If anyone else has one please chime in. The I2C bus is not as effective once you stretch the lines over a large distance, say a room, but you could run the power cables from the Solenoid and the Lights to wherever you host your Keypad/Relay. This would effectively allow you have the keypad on one side of the room and the locked door on the other. In terms of going a more " Wireless' route " I would highly recommend checking out the new ESP32 Wroom. It has Wifi, bluetooth and a Qwiic Connector!
You could have one paired with your Keypad, another with your Relay and they pass the signal wirelessly to each other. Oooh, I really like that idea...time for a new project. Thanks for the Comment!
Thanks for the inquiry! If there is interest I will happily add a Diagram and the code to the post. Check back soon!
Great Catch, Thank you! The AVR Treasure Chest project was really well done, Glad to make sure more people can also enjoy it.
That's a healthy step to take before committing yourself to a locked room. In my experience with Escape Rooms, they typically do not lock the door behind you for those kind of safety reasons. Often they rely on the thrill of the puzzle hunt to keep folks from walking out early and claiming Victory!
There is an abundance of great options for Solenoid latches out there, that particular one has a different latch orientation than what I needed for the hinge. We are looking into sourcing some great Solenoid latches as well speak to keep an eye out for that! Thanks for the comment!
