My front door face recognition system is now operational. It still has some small glitches and there are a few thing I'm planning to change but overall it works quite well. I can come to the front door and type in my code to unlock the door (only if it sees me). If it doesn't recognise someone then it will send me a picture of them so that I can add in their name in. github.com/avt613/RPi-face-recognition Great big thanks to @sampoder and everyone else involved in the SoM.

Finally got it to unlock when it recognises me and I type in my code. Also changed cases to make it a bit smaller.

Today I was figuring out how to use a shift register. I've just finished making a small board for it. I hope it works. The soldering is a mess.

I'm sure there must be a more efficient way of doing this. I am so grateful for copy/paste.
