Yes, you will have to cut off the mount and sand it flat. As far as the actuators, I am not positive. The code is used to program an Arduino. You will need one to do that project.Thank you. here are some questions I can think of off the top of my head.
1. On your one of your first pictures you showed the patio lock, was some of the base of the lock shaved/sanded off?
2. I have looked for linear equators and ive found a 6v 100:1 ratio and a 12v 50:1 ratio, which one do you recommend?
3. I saw you posted some coding for the lock, is it needed and if so, what program would i use to install it?
