Nowadays, security is one of the living essentials, and there is a dire need for reliable, secure, and smarter locking systems. The stand-alone smart security systems are of great interest as they do not involve keys, cards, or unsecured communication in order to prevent carrying, loss, duplication, and hacking. Here, we report an invisible touch sensors-based smart door locking system (DLS). The passive transducer-based touch sensors are fabricated through a facile do-it-yourself (DIY) based fabrication process by pasting the hybrid geometry copper electrodes on cellulose paper. The employment of biodegradable, and non-toxic materials like paper and copper tape makes this configuration a good candidate for green electronics. For additional security, the keypad in the DLS is made invisible by covering it with paper and spray paint. One can only open the door by knowing the password as well as the location of each key on the sensor keypad. The system can efficiently recognize the exact pattern of passwords without any false values. Invisible touch sensors-based locking systems can easily contribute to the security applications in homes, banks, automobiles, apartments, lockers, and cabinets.
