Gatekeeper is a Python script that opens a gate when calling to +32493604143. It only opens the gate for whitelisted numbers. The hardware used:

  • A beagle board with a Debian based distro on, kindly donated by Bert.
  • A remote controller for the gate connected to the beagle board
  • A Huawei e220 GSM modem with a SIM card to
  • ssh -p 2222


  • We can make the door opening for all people on Thursday, and only for members on the others...? @Jorin: Is this pythonable?
  • We can sound a alarm when ppl call the number but aren't members, then someone can go outside and pen the door.

pinout on the beagleboard towards the gate opener:

  • pin 28: black
  • pin 24: white
  • pin 1 (bottom): red
