    @lubbertkramer Good point. 

    * The print inside i removed, only the part wich connect the batteries (2xAA) i keep in place. You need this because a 9 volt battery cant deliver the needed AMP. 

    * connected the + directly to the motor and the - to the relay (C)of the Popp strike lock.
    * from the strike lock (NO) you go to the motor.

    The strike lock itself should work on a 9 volt battery but my experience is that it wil drain in less a day, so i did used a 220-12V adaptor.

    Make sure if switching the device on, that you also switchting it of in a few seconds (automatecly) 

    Part wich i cut off, and not using anymore


  • Great work @Oy1974! Will take a look at it later if i can archieve the same with mine.

    Just replace the 2 batteries for, this little board wich brings 12 v tot 3.3v

    https://nl.aliexpress.com/item/DC-DC-Buck-Step-down-Power-Supply-Module-5V-12V-24V-to-3-3V-Fixed-Output/32744123163.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.4a594c4dCwfr9Y 

    This because the batteries doesnt work long, they losing voltage because the travel to longer wires. So empty after a short time. 
    Benifit also no need to change them anymore.
