[OT] Door Magnet Locks IP Controlled

Does anyone know of a 12 volt open/close momentary switch that could be used to control a magnetic lock on a door but is IP controlled?

I think ubnt has one coming but it will probably be in a shipping container for the next 18 months.

Curiously I made a prototype PoE powered "NetLock" way back in 2005/2006 when I was worried about theft of intellectual property at my old company.

Even more curiously, just and a few months later I became aware of "Loch Isle", an Ottawa area startup which was designing a networked lock that used wireless instead of PoE. Their web site used to say something like "we are the future of locks" etc.

Anyway, you can use off-the-shelf Bluetooth or Zigbee M2M modules to directly control some OEM magnetic locks. Many of them are low power and could run for a year from 2 AA cells or a small single cell Li-ion battery.

Actually I think you could do this pretty easily with UBNT mFi controller and a DC Volt triggered lock.

The mFi software is pretty cool, been using it for over a year now with door sensors, temperature, current, motion etc.
