Abstract: Smart home security control system has become indispensable in daily life. Since physical presence may not be possible in all cases, remote access of the home environment proves to be vital. In this paper, a smart home lock system is proposed which allows access to known members of the family. In case of the unknown members, their image is forwarded to the admin who then may decide if the visitor must be allowed access to the house. This system makes use of facial recognition algorithm RANSAC implemented using OpenCV, an android application which the admin uses to access the lock remotely and an arduino based locking system that is controlled by the app. The android application is developed using GCM to enable push notifications and further simplify the control process.
