Garage Door Fingerprint Lock

This is an electronic garage door opener designed around a SparkFun GT-511C1R fingerprint scanner. There is already a very good instructable by user nodcah that describes how to build almost this exact device, from which I took 99% of my inspiration. I'm posting this to easily share with my local makerspace, and for anyone who likes to see things done slightly differently. The door opener system consists of ...

Arduino RFID Lock

The Arduino RFID lock How does it work? The Arduino RFID lock is a lock that can be opened easily, but is secure. The lock works with a server database that can register card codes. On the door there is a RFID reader connected to the lock. If the RFID reader reads a registered card the door will open. One of the pictures gives a  schematic overview of the functionality of the Arduino RFID lock. In this inst ...

Very Simple Arduino Electric Lock

This is a instructable for a very simple Arduino controlled electric lock. The key idea here is to be very simple as this was more of a proof of concept prototype type of thing. The Arduino is used as a switch to control the lock itself, and is set to interface with a Computer. The Computer sends serial data to the Arduino in which allows the electronic lock to be opened. The Computer itself allows many dif ...

Arduino RFID Door Lock

***Updated 8/9/2010*** I wanted to make an easy and secure way to enter my garage. RFID was the best way to unlock my door, even with my hands full I can unlock the door and push it open! I built a simple circuit with a basic ATMega 168 arduino chip and a ID-20 RFID reader to control an electronic door lock. The circuit consists of 3 separate parts, a Reader to read RFID tags, a Controller to accept data fr ...
