    Thanks Guillermo! I wanted to use MAX32620FTHR initially but it is not available in my country (India). I am really interested in using MAX32620FTHR because of its small size, low power consumption and direct battery compatibility, but it also poses some problems like no inbuilt WiFi module. I have already included the schematic diagram and i have also listed all the connection. In the code section I have mentioned all the changes required in the code to use MAX32620FTHR Board. If you face any problems feel free to message me! Cheers!

    Initially, I wanted everything to be in one app the blynk app, but blynk doesn't have any live camera feed feature or notification feature! I am planning to do a follow up on this version 2 or something, in which i will make my own application, which can be used for anything. Full control, live feed, intruder notification. Also, I am thinking about a full Home Assistant (Google and Amazon both) integration in the system. Currently, I have only been able to do it with Alexa. So, stay tuned! For the time being you can use one of many apps available on play store for raspberry pi camera live feed - https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.pibits.raspberrypiremotecam

    Thanks Andy! Glad you liked this project! Yes, I did wanted to use Octopod in my home but not the Lock part. That was to show one of the main uses of an integrated system. If you want to use the Lock in your home I don't recommend Servo's b/c after a certain torque limit, teeth of gears inside servo break. You can use mechanical actuators or now a days there are electric locks available that you can hack with arduino. Though, if you want to use servos, you have to make some contraption such that all the lock pressure is not the servo directly!
