Given the limited space, it was imperative that the module didn’t take a lot of space. After adding battery housing, there was very limited space for the chipset..
For battery-operated locks, power consumption plays a huge role. The system should work on 2 AA batteries for at least 6 months, if not more.
For remote access management, an optional wifi module was required but due to higher power consumption, we couldn’t install it on the primary chipset.
The lock market is highly competitive, and thus the customer had a strict upper cap for MRP.
Chipset prototyping using Arduino and Particle.io
Once we agreed on the chipset, next step was to write a light weight firmware.
For remote access management, we needed a robust backend to control the locks over wifi and cellular.
The final piece to bring it all to life. A mobile app for end users.
