DIYer Locks in Awesome Entertainment

Steve Cale’s biometric door lock and sound isolation scheme ensures his homemade theater only provides authorized entertainment. (Watch Video Tour)

Steve Cale isn’t screwing around with his home theater. After 10 months of gutting his basement and countless dollars, he doesn’t just let anyone into his home theater. You need the password—or at least a carbon copy of his fingerprint for the door lock.

“It just sounded and looked cool and was a very quick and easy way to get into the theater, while securing it so that no one could get in that I didn’t want in,” Cale says of the Shepherd DL 210 fingerprint lock he installed on the door. He’s also been seen joking on the AVS Forum that the added protection helps to keep his live-in 17-year-old brother-in-law out when not authorized for entertainment.

However, it’s not the entrance that would impress guests and A/V geeks. “I tried it make it classy enough to not be dated in a few years and comfortable enough to spend a lot of time in,” Cale says.
