Has Anyone Figured Out How to Lock a Car?

I’d love to have a device in my garage that broadcasts the lock code for my car to ensure that my cars are locked when I set my house to “Goodnight”. I have searched for Arduino and Raspberry Pi solutions, thinking that if I can get the lock bit working I could add vision for an integrated garage device for all my parking needs. I could see real value in a multi-purpose detector and transmitter for the garage.

I had the thought to cobble something together with an after market key fob, but I thought I’d ask here first.

Several people have used mimolite’s to automate “pushing buttons” on remotes.


Yep. :sunglasses:

Or if you want a non-wiring option, you can just use a SwitchBot as a “robot finger“ to push a button.

Interesting, but I don’t see how that would send a lock signal to my car. Am I missing something?

Did you purchase a standard after market key fob and then resolder the switches to the MIMO?
