The idea behind the project is to create an Android application that allows users to control the locking system of a smart lock from their phone. Users who have a smart lock installed in their home have the power to lock and unlock their home from anywhere in the world. It uses your devices Wi-Fi/4G to connect to your home Wi-Fi system which will then connect to the smart lock. This means you don’t have to carry around a set of keys all the time and eliminates the chances of arriving home and being locked out of your house if you lost your keys. You can’t always be at home so opening the lock from anywhere for kids, relatives, friends or cleaners if they don’t have keys or access to the house is appealing for many people. Some other features the application includes is granting or revoking other users access at any time and timed locking/unlocking. This is useful for users who want the locks for their house to automatically lock late in the evening as a safety feature in case they forget to lock the house before going to bed. The application provides resent activity logs to show users who has been entering their home and at what time. This app will give users more freedom and control over their own home allowing them to plan their day more freely. The application initially will only be available on android devices as it is created using Android Studio and is written in Java.
