Programmable electronic timer switch to electronic door lock?


Close, but you have the terminals backwards. The solenoid wire would go to 1 and 2. Where are you getting 9 volts from?

You would have to see how much current the timer takes to run and then figure battery time. Joed has a good idea if you can use a small plug-in DC transformer to power the timer. I also see that the timer can be powered from 120 volts AC so that may be another option.

Sorry, meant to say that. Thought I numbered them differently.

I was just going to have an external 9v battery connector. I also saw some 2 x AA, 4 x AA, 6 x AA, and 8 x AA battery packs that would work. Would either of these setups last longer than just 1 9v...or 2 9v?

Thanks for all the help.

Would there be an advantage to getting a 24v programmable timer rather than a 12v model?

Since the lock operates on 6 volts(4 AA batteries) there would be an advantage of getting a 6 volt timer. Then you could operate both them off the same supply. I would get a plug in 6 volt power pack and run them both.
