Electronic Smart Lock

Your repository for electronic smart lock design resources


Traditional mechanical locks are developing into more complex electronic locks. The entire lock is controlled and managed with semiconductor devices such as relay drivers, low power connected microcontrollers and power management ICs.

  • Most electronic locks are battery powered making battery life a key design challenge. Low power DC/DC with nano-amp quiescent current, load switches and an ultra-low-power microcontroller make extremely long battery life possible.
  • Electronic smart locks are also incorporating more interactive RGBW HMI and audio feedback to enable more intuitive and aesthetically pleasing devices while maintaining minimal power consumption.
  • In residential homes, Bluetooth® low energy is often used for smart electronic lock designs. However, in commercial smart locks, Sub-1 GHz is more desirable.

TI reference designs, application notes, authored articles and training videos help you address each of these complex issues while reducing time to market.
