In the past, there had been many keyless entry solutions that
have been developed to eliminate the hassling task of toting a key around or
making the key a more convenient tool to use.
These various solutions range from card scanners, retina scanners,
fingerprint identification, and combination locks. Even though these solutions are unique and
some even use state of the art technology, they can be very costly and
presenting a key to a reader or scanner can be a hassle when range of motion is
Intelock will be a new keyless entry system that will be
added to the family of solutions all ready out there. Its unique characteristics of low cost, low
power and reliability will separate itself from the other solutions on the
market. With Intelock, the user will
never have to take their identification key out of their pocket or purses in
order to gain access into an entry way.

Principle of Operation
User will have on them, a unique key that the system will
recognize. Upon the turn of the
doorknob, the system will lock or unlock the door depending on if the user key
is valid or not. Turning the doorknob
left will cause the system to lock the door, turning it right will cause the
system to unlock the door. Users do not
have to take out their key to access the system. As long as the key is on their person, the
system will pick up its signal. In
addition, users can lock or unlock their door from a remote location by logging
onto a server designed and provided by Team Ganz 2007.
The inputs to the system are the wireless devices using
ZigBee technology. Only those devices
with permission to access the system’s network are allowed to communicate
within the keyless entry network.
The output is the action of locking or unlocking the
electronic deadbolt by the wireless system.
The system prototype will be tested by integrating the
ZigBee technology into a physical home door.
ZigBee devices will be tested for wireless ranges and proper functionality
in relation to the wireless system.
