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 ...
