hi all, I have the split doors too and it was not easy to find something that would lock decently and yet still mount in the limited space between the windows. I ended up using a puck type lock setup. works great for now until I rebuild the door later in to a one piece.

I mounted an actuator in the cavity above the door. It pushes the post down. That post blocks the door from opening. It is wired to a controller that uses a key fob to move the post. With a push of a button, the post moves up out of the way and the door is unlocked. A push of the other button and the door is locked. It came with two key fobs and more can be ordered. Nothing is visible once installed.
Check page 5 of my build to see the details.

Hmm... Looks like nobody has tried simply to use existing hardware. When I finish painting, I'll crack on with building an unlocking mechanism!. My problem is there's a lock present that needs to be unlocked from outside.

We just had issues that I needed to overcome. We don't want to wait to unlock a door when it is raining out. We wanted a lock that nobody could lock shut from the outside except us. My wife sometimes has to get in to a bathroom without delay. My solution overcomes these.
