Hey @harshcs

Thanks for reading the tutorial :slight_smile:.

You should be able to use most of the code apart from your service type will be; HMAccessoryCategoryTypeDoorLock and the value characteristic will be HMCharacteristicValueLockMechanismState.

The state is an enum so you would base the value of either locked/unlocked.

I hope this helps :slight_smile:
