Have you ever wanted a cool numeric-keypad entry system for something? The back door, the shed, to turn on power to the entertainment system, or the bathroom door? Well now's your chance to get started by following the instructions by Instructables member "WWC". They've documented how to create a simple Arduino-compatible method of controlling a servo via a PIN. You can then use the methods described as part of your own projects to create an access system, for example:
Visit the project page for more information and instructions. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.
Want to make your own Arduino-controlled project with servos and more - but not sure how to start? Then the best way to learn is with out new Experimenter's Kit for Arduino:
The package includes a wide variety of parts, sensors and modules including: a servo motor, lights, buttons, switches, sound, sensors, breadboard, wires and more. Furthermore a Freetronics Eleven Arduino-compatible board is included to make this an extensive hobby experimenter, inventor and starter kit. However we don't leave you alone to figure it all out, included is a great project and instruction booklet, plus access to a supporting web page and software examples. In other words - this is everything you need to get started for a fun range of electronics and Arduino related projects!
