A system and method are disclosed for a user to provide remote temporary access to a locked door of his/her home by performing authentication using a social network site or any other suitable application. The system comprises a camera for authentication and employs an access control system that receives inputs from the user via a network connection. The system has a database to store and recover the picture of previously visited users. The system provides high security for homes by integrating social network-based authentication with the conventional door lock system, obviating the need to share access codes.
