Last night at the build, Philip (with the help of Andrew) completed the first working prototype of SHAC – Smart House Access Control.  This is a very sophisticated access control system which is connected to the cloud – sorry a bit lame, but really 🙂 SHAC uses an AWS instance for administrating the access control and sends an encrypted message to the house server to open the gate or front door.  The encryption uses a rolling code which is similar to KeyLog found in most car remotes.

Check out this short video – Philip promised to give us a presentation at an upcoming meetup.
