Electronic Code Lock

Nowadays, electronic code locks are usually based on microcontrollers. However, if you like your electronics discrete, you will enjoy the battery-operated circuit shown here. Since the circuit automatically switches off after the door has been opened and draws no current in the idle state, three alkaline batteries (mignon, AA or R6 cells) are good for around 5,000 door openings. The main advantage is that the door opener can also be powered from the battery, so it’s not necessary to run any extra cables.
